New scratch build coming :) Having played two years on the Cars computer my son has a new addiction ... Just like his old man, building things.
Not PCs(not yet) but Minecraft.

So what could be more fun than a Minecraft Creeper build?

He has now been two years older than his first air-cooled PC and is now it's time for a watercooled rig for his Minecraft.

First I want to thank wwwicked for the beautiful banner ... Top Mark!! Thanks

As mentioned: The Creeper



And so I did ... first went to the local hardware store and buyed several aluminum strips.
Bought Flat strips, angles and other junk. Very nice to work like old times just the same as with Meccano.

At first I only had a picture of the Creeper. But it's better to have a real plastic Creeper. So I bought one and applied a scale of about 1:5.

First builded the mid section around the PSU.





Put the head together.





And Started with the legs.



When the real plastic Creeper came in and saw that the center piece did not match the scale I shortened it a bit. And then put the legs together.









I still had an old acrylic mobo tray which nicely fits in the head of the Creeper. And put an Asus Maximus V Gene on it.







Beneath the mobo tray I placed a 360 rad with some beautiful green Nanoxia fans.







Now that the frame is ready, time the next step. The cover up, For this I will use acrylic with green vinyl.

After some thinking and some tips I found 2 HDD coolers that I had lying around, which will nice when liquid passes through. So after some cutting and pasting:







First leg finished. Time for the 2e



3rd leg and midplate done. Now mount every thing very good to reduce the cracks to a minimum





More soon :)

Update!!!

There he is again, the Creeper....

After the last update I was messing around with acrylic covers and was not happy about this.
Nevertheless The front of the head was not bad.











And the sides of the head where also not bad,





But I just was not happy with the gaps between the acrylic covers. Therefore disassembled everything again



And made everything with 6mm mdf











Made everything smooth and sanded it.



And let the wife paint





When she was doing her thing, I had exchanged the previous mobo (ASUS Gene) and placed a Gigabyte Z68 (ATX) What suits better because of the format. And stick some nice old school and new EKWB blocks on it.







And after some brainstorming.... yet again the horizontal way.



To accomplish this, I created an extra acrylic cover.















All horizontal again







And connected everything in the front again.





More coming soon ;)

Update!!!

For the midplate where the reservoirs and pump will be placed, I have cut out 2 pieces of acrylic



And give it a color





Connected the reservoir (input) on the radiator (output)



Other res connected the input like the previous res







Connected the outputs onto the input pomp (MCP355).





and connected everything.





Time to fill the Creeper. Made a nice movie about this:


Once filled... it was time for shooting some nice pictures.

























And stacked everything together.





Temporarily placed the head on.



And continuing with the head covers





More soon!!!

Wow truly amazing. Do you plan putting a mesh or some kind of cover on the holes for the eyes and the mouth?

Update!!!

Sunday already???...Time for an update!!!

First the PSU ... sleeved it Black, gray, lighter gray and green this time










Thanks to my wife (I hate paintjobs) The green side covers. (Still need to paint the bolts green)
Will use bolts for the side and back covers because I want these to be removable









Back also finished with the beautiful EOL Nanoxia DX12 fans :(









It's always about the details, so placed onto some strategic spots LED strips and CCFL lights.

Placed a CCFL light beneath the acrylic piece where the tubes passes through





And on the other side I have a white LED strip to highlight some of the hardware



It also needs a PSU :) So time for placing the Cooler Master PSU.



Looks a bit strange :D



Time to connect the sleeved cables



















Last but not least placed some more green LEDs beneath the Creeper



More coming next week ;)
