Hello ROG readers,

Introduction:
My name is Stef and my alias is Cygnitr0n. Cygnitr0n is a combination of Cygnus X, Nitro and Tron. And I'm from Holland. So already I will appologize in front if the Englisch is not correct.


https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-7j7JcVEsTys/UUxYWFHcxjI/AAAAAAAADXk/-SXs45j5ZSQ/s500/banner+HF+300x500+copy.jpg

Let me begin:
After a few moments of thoughts and seeing some of the builds here on Bit-Tech.net. I became inspirid and now I'm planning a new project. I don't want a normal case for my PC anymore. And after building the "Obsidian Carnage" , modding my HTPC and modding the Antec Darkfleet, I was getting more experienced with the modding. So, I wanted to leap forward and making myself a real case mod.

Inspiration:
I've been inspired by the old retro look and I want to make the old, new again and bring it back in the future. But afterall in a whole new inside and purpose. It's will be a shame to let this old thing go to waste. Afterall it is a sort of legacy. I was searching for something old, nice, good looking and it must be big enough for a small PC. And I found it, a Philips BX480A.

Because I really like a nostalgic look, I will preserve it in this build. Afterall it's a MOD so I will make a few changes along the way. If it's necessary.

The Project:
It will not be a project that I would build in a short timeframe. Because this build is delicate and needs time. I want it to be perfect and restore it for a whole new purpose.

So I will give you an idea how it looks and what I'm going to Mod. This project is called "1949" and has no real name yet. The "1949" stands for the builddate from this old Radio.

Hardware:
It's gonna be an mITX build with HTPC/Media PC potentials. And I'm going to work with a lot of copper. So that was the story for my idea. Hopefully I will bring this old Radio back to life with his new purpose in the 21st Century.

And here is a picture from the old Philips BX480A.

It depends on the hardware that I'm able to use. :)

maybe a micro atx board would fit? how big is this radio? turning an old radio into a pc seems like a hard task.

Cygnitr0n

Here are the dimensions (WHD):

470 x 300 x 230 mm / 18.5 x 11.8 x 9.1 inch

And yes, it is a hard task. So I will take the time with this one.

Don't destroy that! Keep it hidden somewhere, oh well if you want to use it then go ahead.. Please show some pictures of what your type of idea with it will be and do take big care with the task i cannot wait to see what you can create out of a 60 + year old machine.. make it red and black and go RoG style =P

No, they don't it lasted for 63 years already. That's why I will give it a second life.


Oh, that's Great Sir !!
Thanks kgrjohn!

No I won't. I will handle it with care and caution. I will be a big task. And I'm gonna take the time that I will be needed.
I should make some examples, yes. Will post them in a while. :)

Nothing will go in the trash. The inside is just what I'm loving about this type of radio.
You can call it like, steampunkish if you want ;)

~Look what I found on the internet! An ornament for this build. I fell in love with it! And bought it :D
It will be the symbol (token).

I really dont have a clue :)

Time to find it now that you asked about it :D


Update:

Let me give you all a short update. The update is to show wich light there will be in.
I'm using my own design PCB for the LED light. This LEDPCB is normally black but with some spray I turned it in to Bronze.
As you can see in the picture I spray the LED strip is not entirely smooth. This is a desired effect that I had not foreseen. So a good reason for an "old" look. The color of the LEDs be "Orange". These colors they had previously only. So that I would like to come back again.

I let the resistor come out of the PCB standing up. Liked it better this way.

I've already recieved a donorcase from a friend. Maybe I can use some parts of it.

Cygnitr0n
05-31-2012, 04:57 PM
And again in the round-up: http://rog.asus.com/113582012/news/may-monthly-forum-mods-roundup/

I've already got an donor PC. And I bought a mechanical clock.
http://forum.highflow.nl/attachments/f21/5021d1337110502t-wat-heb-jij-net-gekocht-gekregen-klok.png

The clock is working and maybe it will be intergraded in the build. Just behind were the speaker now is. I hope that I can make the wheels turn automatically in this build. I would be nice to see it's "alive" and working. I will paint the clock and the color would be brass or bronze. :cool:


Do we need to make a mini-ITX ROG board just to fit in there Cygnitr0n?
Yeah, ASUS ROG should make a mini-ITX ROG. How cute it will be!! :o A nice little powerboard ;)

I'm really looking forward to seeing the end product Cygnitron :) oh and who did you quote as asking if ASUS should build a mini ITX RoG board? i'd be rather annoyed if they did, without at least making an mATX AMD board too....we should both be able to have what we want :D

Cygnitr0n
06-20-2012, 01:03 PM
It's been awhile that I've post here. It's not that I'm doing nothing but I'm gonna move tommorow.
The build is on hold till after the moving. I don't want some parts to dissapear ;) That would be devastating.

So, when the moving part is over, I'm gonna pick up this build. Can't wait! And in the meanwhile, I hope that ASUS ROG has a m-ITX board then :p

Till soon enthousiasts!

06-20-2012, 01:15 PM
Good luck with your moving! Hope, everything will be smooth... i hate movings...

We'll be here for any updates! :)

Great concept! I can't wait to see it finished :) this is going to be nice :)

speed
06-23-2012, 09:35 AM
I like that a lot. You now there is nothing like the warm glow of a vacuume tube. Makes me want a cup of hot coco and sit by the old radio.

Cygnitr0n
07-20-2012, 09:56 PM
Thanks ZKA17, sp33d3ple , speed and RoG! I really need the support for it. It is a challange but hey, humanity landed on the moon. ;)

Yeah, I think that is a great idea! A hot coco with a old radio, playing games with it -ontheside- :)

The moving of my house turns out to be longer than i thought! Danm, my hands are itching!
But the waiting is no problem.. ^ahum. But yeah. I really want to build it straight away when the house is finally done.

Now I heard some Rumours about an ROG m-ITX. Even on this site! I really think that is the next level for Asus ROG!

See in this movie: http://youtu.be/X3eaR-P5Oig @6:33 They already talking about a m-ITX. Who wouldn't want a small beast?
I do!

Agreed, an m-itx rog would be awesome.
And perfect for your project!

That was Daniel saying he'd love to see an mITX board, not official word that ASUS will bring one out...though if they do bring one out for Intel only I am going to be seriously pissed.

May I ask where you got the hands free soldering station?

Nice build, I never had the chance to listen to a tube radio, must sound warm and fuzzy ;)

This one of the Best Companies I've found yet: http://www.zeph.com/directory.htm, their equipment is even sanctioned by NASA. I also have a setup from them that I use to fix some Laptops with and do my own Prototyping when I feel inclined to do it...

Yeah, it will! And I saw that EVGA just build a Z77 m-ITX now the hope is that ASUS ROG will follow.


That was Daniel saying he'd love to see an mITX board, not official word that ASUS will bring one out...though if they do bring one out for Intel only I am going to be seriously pissed.
Yeah, I can understand now that you are an AMD user. But even so I will hope with you.

The solderingstation that you see is bought in the NL. A shop called Conrad.
:) The sound was indeed fuzzy, just like snow. To bad.

After a long movement of my house, a little vacation and cleaning the attic, I have found my enthousiasm back to do something about this build.

Totday I have started this build again, first I will disassemble the radio. Ofcourse with pain in my heart, because it's a real old radio. But there was no way to bring it back alive. It's eating dust knowadays.

So let's disassable the radio!

After 64 years a disassambling the radio. First the backpart.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9YRK_PFJ_UU/USzGB2IcFKI/AAAAAAAADGc/NHAseMljo-w/s902/IMG_0928A+copy.jpg

It takes only 4 screws.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-q69UxfcLgNI/USzGB7uiY0I/AAAAAAAADGg/At8x1xkoV9Y/s902/IMG_0930A+copy.jpg

After pulling the internal from the case it sees sunlight! And what do we find... yes a dead spider.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-xyEPt6mwNuI/USzGCDggSMI/AAAAAAAADGk/rjycnweQuxE/s902/IMG_0931A+copy.jpg

What a history is there in this radio. I like the glass tubes!
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QQr8iDMz9iM/USzGCRu6wsI/AAAAAAAADG0/P-ln4A1neo8/s902/IMG_0938A+copy.jpg

This is the front of the radio.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-lXTuGFWgQtM/USzGCrW4EmI/AAAAAAAADGw/comqbLZQqF4/s902/IMG_0939A+copy.jpg

It was a real world reciever!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-hesSGI6yrgo/USzGC5z_1dI/AAAAAAAADG4/cx3xuEsTUWQ/s902/IMG_0940A+copy.jpg

These buttons will come back on the build.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-_uhj68z7D2g/USzGDI5cdJI/AAAAAAAADHE/Zh3K7kON2WU/s902/IMG_0942A+copy.jpg

I removed the frontpanel. I don't think I want to clean it. The old look is fine.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-sAYEIozsuyI/USzGDbBQ2-I/AAAAAAAADHI/1Du4eQfgeSI/s902/IMG_0949A+copy.jpg

The lights for the plexiglass, nowadays we use LEDs.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-iZtbwRLMopc/USzGDpXl9OI/AAAAAAAADHM/GxK59fMkfGs/s902/IMG_0951A+copy.jpg

De front is removed from the internal radio. Everything works with fine wires and little springs.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-PrwW2MKXFQU/USzGD7VHOnI/AAAAAAAADHU/s6aGY_RBpTc/s902/IMG_0957A+copy.jpg

This was build to last indeed. Nevertheless it ends here.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-JTbP1avhMx8/USzGD8AcdVI/AAAAAAAADHY/w68p8hnnjxY/s902/IMG_0960A+copy.jpg

It's really old and everything works mechanical.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-TysNhFxMvzs/USzGEOXmfKI/AAAAAAAADHk/7UK9Ur6UfqU/s902/IMG_0962A+copy.jpg

I was shocked because of what I found here. Wires, wires. Nowadays we have a little PCB for it.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-lW57HI3TFMc/USzGESXxIXI/AAAAAAAADHg/QK8dNFBpems/s902/IMG_0963A+copy.jpg

OMG I love these Tubes!
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0h29aimKs9Y/USzGEnMdYdI/AAAAAAAADHo/mnRQk89PIKM/s902/IMG_0971A+copy.jpg

Now it's time to disassable the speaker.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wIsnFfbIJ_c/USzGFAmUrMI/AAAAAAAADH0/KNNA-ylWC6Y/s902/IMG_0976A+copy.jpg

I really wanted to see if the speaker is still intact. Indeed it was!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-DpjeH1GZnbQ/USzGFbCFunI/AAAAAAAADH8/417TwU4-74k/s902/IMG_0981A+copy.jpg

The speaker is gone, now the rest. This is gonna be the blueprint of the new front. So it's an important part.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-fpiAcQfPtEw/USzGFgvt1jI/AAAAAAAADIA/2W98cjkeNGc/s902/IMG_0983A+copy.jpg

The fabric is gone. Just a waste.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JgSr1NzxhrM/USzGF44iqLI/AAAAAAAADII/lo-GLTqPhMw/s902/IMG_0984A+copy.jpg

Here are the important parts for the build. The back, front and plexi.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-5ypCiYdYMnA/USzGGI09Y-I/AAAAAAAADIQ/s9uHvFT6jjE/s902/IMG_0986A+copy.jpg

This I bought six months ago. It's the eyecatcher. It had a steampunk feeling to it.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/--8d3GjbSDe8/USzGGZyuDkI/AAAAAAAADIU/xGsBHIc9pms/s902/IMG_0990A+copy.jpg

Here an example how it's gonna look. Great!
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-c6ID6p87kmc/USzGGpYCrFI/AAAAAAAADIY/Q8AbFyp_h08/s902/IMG_0996A+copy.jpg

And so only the case is left. Cleaned it with water and no chemicals.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-J7r8BA0p-Vw/USzGGx8hMLI/AAAAAAAADIk/-xZvz1GBb_U/s902/IMG_0997A+copy.jpg

And now it's time to measure it all! Till nextime!

Hello Readers!

It is a lovely day here in the Netherlands! So glad that I have some spare time!

Today was the time to change the color of the HD6570 Sapphire. I'll give it a brass colour.

Here are the pictures of today, the HD6570.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kI4_JgXJGQw/UTSq3g2zd7I/AAAAAAAADMY/bqZ3Bo96JEA/s902/IMG_1003A.jpg

This is the brass colour that I want.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-2YMljmP-uh0/UTSq3zP9mFI/AAAAAAAADMQ/zqvVZMTGqAA/s902/IMG_1005A.jpg

I have to pull the coolingblock from the PCB first.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-EyUvhEhHdy4/UTSq4E2OvlI/AAAAAAAADMs/HZA89tOrJ6g/s902/IMG_1011A.jpg

There they are, the cleanupbros.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-hpc_7pquKKc/UTSq4fmUFwI/AAAAAAAADMk/1bj7w4qO40Q/s902/IMG_1014A+copy.jpg

There isn't better cleanstuff then this.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QO5G74cZiXY/UTSq4bc-vgI/AAAAAAAADMw/OzEhhru3oWg/s902/IMG_1016A+copy.jpg

And I had to tape the parts that shouldn't get paint on them.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-EWUduUGULCA/UTSq46-TOxI/AAAAAAAADNA/2KEc48MYuNI/s902/IMG_1017A+copy.jpg

Once freshly painted it looks like this. If it feels old, then my work is complete.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-oAY91GFiDNw/UTSq5ZG-jdI/AAAAAAAADNQ/mIe5D6Qp_cM/s902/IMG_1019A+copy.jpg

After a couple of hours, I began with cleaning the sticker.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-93uVBMRggMw/UTSq7cf63UI/AAAAAAAADOI/rEGDfOUZri8/s902/IMG_1039A+copy.jpg

And here is the coolblock back on it's PCB.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qnD8i8MzrYE/UTSq7wVQC5I/AAAAAAAADOE/rtLDSXSWETQ/s902/IMG_1042A+copy.jpg

And I had to show the topside!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-k6z1aUfutOo/UTSq8ceNI0I/AAAAAAAADOg/CgHyJae03Jk/s902/IMG_1044A+copy.jpg

Then it was time for the lightbulbs.

So this was the part for the graphic card. But there is more. oh? Yes ofcourse! Because in the time I had to wait for the Paint to dry. I had something else to do. Measuring the Philips.

Gladly I have some PC parts, but I couldn't find the right one. So I offered the new Lian-Li benchtable. *With pain in my heart*
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-7VxCurol_jk/UTSq5uP3KlI/AAAAAAAADNI/-vbDYa_39bc/s902/IMG_1024A+copy.jpg

And there is is then. I drew the line for my Dremel.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-S7ptfzCWoc4/UTSq6azcydI/AAAAAAAADN0/OxjDMH5-YZc/s902/IMG_1029A+copy.jpg

It has to fit ofcourse. And It was my lucky day!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-eux73IYiEoQ/UTSq6vKgA_I/AAAAAAAADNg/nJJWKQ1tSr4/s902/IMG_1031A+copy.jpg

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-TruMXaJTGcs/UTSq6vpjDwI/AAAAAAAADNo/BjYgW8MlIog/s902/IMG_1034A+copy.jpg

So and now with the frontpanel from Philips on. Just to check if it's the correct hight.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XqfzYfYPZoU/UTSq6x8caGI/AAAAAAAADN4/ZvKy8oYbv54/s902/IMG_1036A+copy.jpg

The build has no finish date. Because it's a delicate project. I will restore the Radio first. The wood from the front will be new, the plexiglass will be cut out by laser with an opening for the fan, like a fan protector. So I will restore the outside of the radio to new. The fabric will be new to. So I will be busy with cleaning and fully restore the Radio to new first. Them comes the PC Hardware, measuring an measuring before drilling holes in the old radio. Think about it for 3 times before I will do my radio harm ;)

Thanks for the Sub Buehlar! Hope you will enjoy the ride.




Thanks for the compliments!

I'm going to replace all the woodwork. And there is going to be new fabric on the woodwork where the speaker normal sits behind. Also I'm gonna cut the plexi (Radio bar) with laser (Not my cup of tea so I let a proffesional do it.)

I'm tryin to make this build as original as possible, with here and there a touch from me. It's obvious that is not a radio anymore when I'm done. But hope the results are good for a 'radio' look.

I love the bulbs like I said before, they are coming back in the build. But I need time to think what I want to do with them. I heared from a friend that I can power the working bulbs. Hope it will work. Otherwise I will light them with Leds.

Also a good Idea has come up in another forum. The Leds that I'm making myself has a new feeling to it, but because it has to be old here is the idea: "Take an acrylic tube, paint the inside brass, put the leds in and burn! It would look like a tube! Hope this works!

First things first! I need to clean and polish the Radio. It's not in a good state know. But is will be in a week or so. When the weather is good enough.


Back to the drawingboard. Till next!

Update!

Before the snowfall here in the Netherlands, I tried to polish the outside of the radio. I wanted to know if I can do it succesfully. Because I don't want to damage the radio,

yet ;)

So I tried at the underside of the radio. With succes, pfff. But I didn't clean the inside yet. This is now on my "todo-list". But when I polished the Radio, I saw that it's

gonna be great, but also I saw that it's gonna be a looooong polish... and polish again and again. This definitely is the same as lapping a CPU. Hours of work!
This was session 1

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-cPf-kxBY45M/UUMdL3xF2OI/AAAAAAAADQg/zm5wqMNJsNU/s902/IMG_1074A.jpg

Stuff that I needed:
Sopje (Water en Soap)
Wasbenzine (Degreaser)
Commandant 4
Copper Polish
Sheepskin polisher
Clean polish fabric
Auto Glym (Car Polish)

The sun came out for a couple of minutes, so I made a picture. Here you see the polishwork I've already done. The reflection is there finally! I didn't clean the bottom, so you can see it as a reference.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-9WQu1bkbsoQ/UUMdLjdztoI/AAAAAAAADQQ/tU_ebnBic1w/s902/IMG_1069A.jpg



In the afternoon I had some spare time. A nice moment to visit the stores. The wood cost me a total of €3,50. Not much at all!

I've chosen for 2 materials. One piece is MDF and the oter is Multiplex (Plywood).The Multiplex(Plywood) is for the front and will be covererd with new radiofabric. The other one, MDF is for the backside.

And I gave the mounting of the mobotray some thoughts. I've chosen for the best sollution. I'm gonna use M4 thread which I'm tapping into the radio. For attaching of the motherboardtray I'm going to use extension bolts. Where the original M4 screws can bolt in easely. Have 8 of them, that should be quite adequate to hold the tray, (to float).

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-0iGrR0aAZgM/UUMdLvytdeI/AAAAAAAADQY/nwiMx6BB_B4/s902/IMG_1107A.jpg

I have not chosen just hardboard. For it is in fact the same color and it is thin. But bends too easily. Eventually my choice was MDF, this is some what harder and easier workable.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-X8AiQcWxLHo/UUMdMdbTqaI/AAAAAAAADQk/JeCZ-Q2UtU0/s902/IMG_1111A.jpg

I'm gonna replace the old piece by a new piece of plywood, luckily I have the old ones. It is easy to trace. The old wood was also made
of Plywood, so no need to use a different type of wood.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-0nlGyzMvzkU/UUMdMhkVA-I/AAAAAAAADQo/78V4SVu_2go/s902/IMG_1112A.jpg

Minor update, that I have to show.

I have drawed the backside op the radio on the MDF. It needs to fit excactly.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-7utyu7ev3QA/UUM8ts9ieeI/AAAAAAAADQ8/Ak10chxCzxc/s902/IMG_1116A.jpg

Here are the parts together. Motherboardtray and the Corsair 200mm FAN.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PiUFwFaovos/UUM8t5z5AXI/AAAAAAAADRE/NqkGk_Z83IU/s902/IMG_1117A.jpg

This is how I think about the frontside of the 1949. I don't have space left in the building to insert/install the Fan. But there is always a way. I think that I can make the fan in the wood. That would solve the spacing problems.

To bad I have to work today, but I did a little bit work. It's not much but it's something.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-5oucbSzQq2Q/UURKrH8Cc0I/AAAAAAAADRs/QaZzSZS6m-0/s902/IMG_1121A.jpg

I drawed the outlines of the original radio. But I had to remove the original fabric. I did it with much pain in the heart! It's 64 years old. Hope I do more good with it then bad! But I have saved a sample of the original fabric.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-OBLLgd-u90M/UURKrBVhQ0I/AAAAAAAADRk/241QOFAD2ww/s902/IMG_1122A.jpg

Afterwards I drawed the outlines from the Corsair 200mm Fan.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-zBUNwqnun7w/UURKrgYOJ4I/AAAAAAAADR0/I5__N361WRI/s902/IMG_1124A.jpg

It's a close call between the original opening from the speaker and the Fan. But I need to sand it off anyways.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-lqIw045qiJo/UURKsIE0PSI/AAAAAAAADRw/fgrH530hsR8/s902/IMG_1127A.jpg

Today I've got some spare time again! Finally weekend. So it's time to do something with project: 1949

The drilling and sawing is the first thing I did. Had no interest in polishing and cleaning the case first. Maybe I'll do it tommow.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1tR-DfHQHsk/UUXFIA4i3LI/AAAAAAAADTQ/initk9Uu5EM/s902/1.jpg

After sawing the hole in the frontplate, the Corsair Fan was next. I enjoy working with my multitool. The best thing I've bought for years.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kqaf6yp9SCo/UUXFIXyXGwI/AAAAAAAADSo/NBCq4z1dOec/s902/2.jpg

The rest of the Plywood needs to be sanded. But the beginning is there.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-0vcM9PawisY/UUXFIdef3gI/AAAAAAAADTE/jeKTgORb8CQ/s902/IMG_1130A.jpg

Ofcource I had to check if it's fits.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-acrAdJnbAeI/UUXFI5IO4JI/AAAAAAAADS8/OppA-w-50pU/s902/IMG_1133A.jpg

It fits! Gladly! Here en there some sanding to do, because the fabric needs to go into the hole to.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-n3D_Ge07zRM/UUXFI_AC4iI/AAAAAAAADS4/9C6hiy6VoDA/s902/IMG_1135A.jpg

So let's turn the plywood around. Oke, I'm going to spray the Fan with brass. Yup. It's a better color then black.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-8imlqRex89M/UUXFJG-Wv7I/AAAAAAAADTM/j7w9KuwgKTo/s902/IMG_1138A.jpg

So let's try if it's going along as planned. I've got pictures of it in my head. But is must be the same.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-A_WRF5pk3VI/UUXFJb8PuDI/AAAAAAAADTU/BWuawflJLxM/s902/IMG_1139A.jpg

Here a little teaser. But need to think it over what I'm suppose to do with the plexiglass. Need to make a sketch first. Hard choiche there.. keep it original or..

And here we go! A day off, time for some fun!
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-AhR0G7UpOVM/UUgpmDIjUxI/AAAAAAAADT4/_eBouR5U6xo/s902/IMG_1153A.jpg

First I need to saw the front out of the plywood.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-54RN6-kIs_4/UUgpmICOKkI/AAAAAAAADVg/fmXIAJAagSs/s902/IMG_1155A.jpg

Look how it comes along. Note: The original speakerhole is off by a centimeter. Don't now if this is good or something went wrong in the Philips factory. But I corrected it. Because it will look better .
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-OVzdyAO1rCU/UUgpmCR1a9I/AAAAAAAADVo/FyC4bz6EE8c/s902/IMG_1156A.jpg

The frontplate fits exactly with the screws bolted on. Nice!
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-1VS_pMqGDik/UUgpmr7mL1I/AAAAAAAADUI/zSxv6CSDE_8/s902/IMG_1166A.jpg

Here is another picture.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-IVSS8CLFM4E/UUgpnL1YGqI/AAAAAAAADVs/3wVlzpwXN94/s902/IMG_1168A.jpg

Here you can see the backplate for the case. I'm using a special saw that can make figures, like a Figuresaw (don't now the word :P)
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-C0wgLPxXnDE/UUgpnGKJA8I/AAAAAAAADVk/19fIaQ91yYI/s902/IMG_1171A.jpg

Between the cutting a sprayed the Coirsair 200mm Fan with plastic primer.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-AVXhe_BOlpo/UUgpnbpiB3I/AAAAAAAADUQ/E1dXYbnPQkY/s902/IMG_1173A.jpg

De backplate is now finally sawed. But needs some sanding, I think.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-SdkhK6vt8Ng/UUgpn8GFmvI/AAAAAAAADUU/WcVl9XsnpEk/s902/IMG_1177A.jpg

De Old backplate en the new.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-BNcMe8jnsaU/UUgpoWKAhsI/AAAAAAAADVw/97YCAUZBoes/s902/IMG_1179A.jpg

Here you see the difference between the two backplates.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-8N7Nsn4vPGM/UUgppKgLiKI/AAAAAAAADU4/2Qv5LPqj0qA/s902/IMG_1184A.jpg

Needs some sanding. (Black line needs to be sanded.)
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-w8RzWEvn8pg/UUgppqzw-eI/AAAAAAAADVE/wXlfCTm2BYI/s902/IMG_1185A.jpg

And I got a package from Cooler Master that I ordered. A FlexPSU.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pGRukF0gLAE/UUgpqOofKzI/AAAAAAAADVQ/ORrWm0lCRo8/s902/IMG_1188A.jpg

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-32cI6k8_hcM/UUgpqPzbQqI/AAAAAAAADVU/_D8Z55YNA5Q/s902/IMG_1194A.jpg

After optimus priming the Corsair 200mm Fan, I've sprayed it in a brass color.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-_YOdLE6FFbs/UUgpqEcAKdI/AAAAAAAADVM/VmWRlUpqEbI/s902/IMG_1197A.jpg

This is the result till now, with a 'brass' fan.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-OFi8PT0hGRI/UUgpqqvIdiI/AAAAAAAADVY/AXV6Q1d6MZ4/s902/IMG_1203A.jpg

Hardware on the Bench:

After sanding and drilling holes into the motherboardtray, I put the whole hardware collection to make a nice little PC. And ofcourse it needed some testing. But again, there was a fault in my calculation. The Videocard is to big, by 7mm again. OMG. It's gonna need some work. I Think I'm going to bend the heatpipe.

OMG Yes! Another update today!

I had some spare time again. So I've been busy with replacing the original fan fromt the Cooler Master Flex PSU. It's kinda loud. That didn't make me happy!

So first we gonna disasamble the PSU.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-WIh4BkK9bog/UVXZw6BKDuI/AAAAAAAADgE/4K9gCeBTFiA/s570/IMG_1327A.jpg

Here is the diffrence between the original (left) and the new Noiseblocker (right).
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-IMW-e66cErY/UVXZxY3qQ-I/AAAAAAAADgA/e8UbeZc4wNo/s570/IMG_1330A.jpg

After that I cut the wires from the old Fan. I had some spare part left over that I'm going to use. Like this 3Pins male.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-W8fJu1-A3FE/UVXZx7QKQJI/AAAAAAAADgI/1V5QF6sdAZs/s570/IMG_1332A.jpg

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-USAIXmBm90Q/UVXZyMy-5WI/AAAAAAAADgU/8YKxqRVuV3s/s570/IMG_1334A.jpg

So, finished!
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-IucMuOXEpyY/UVXZy3eiWNI/AAAAAAAADg8/2uXwz77mra0/s570/IMG_1339A.jpg

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-9JMYQ2RSSjI/UVXZzHNWYwI/AAAAAAAADhU/3OjAzYJLblQ/s570/IMG_1340A.jpg

The old fan is out and the new fan is spinning! Only 9dB!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-zvnKweVewBg/UVXZzjAiYEI/AAAAAAAADhQ/gujjsrnuX9U/s570/IMG_1343A.jpg

And ofcourse the cable management.

Hello Subs!

Next week I have a week off from work. Then I can finally begin working on this build again! A sick cat has making me work on this build almost impossible. *The things you do for love* The cat is fine now so I can begin working on this project. So be assured.

Edit:
For now you must do it with this photo. In the meanwhile I ordered a new HDD. Because the old one had died upon me.
http://sphotos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/p480x480/318778_644163772276646_429531870_n.jpg

To bad, not just enough space to put the GPU in. Hmm, better solve that problem in my vacation!

PS: *And no, there is no LEGO Starwars box on the left, lol*

Hey mate, if you're having problems fitting a Graphics card into your build, you could get a ASUS GTX 670 Mini...the only SFF VGA on the market :D

Hahaha, yes that would be great for my build. But don't think my little powersupply would like that :) Ofcourse we can always change the supply ;)

So the vacation is over and the time was not on my hand at all. To bad!
It was wonderfull weather here so I was more busy with my new garden then being inhome for the build.

But here is another update for you folks!

Bending the heatpipe.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-WxLdS9OD5Uk/UZKBjwX9b9I/AAAAAAAAEw0/Qxa-OEM1jos/w720-h480-no/IMG_1393.png

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-7Pt1SRB43NU/UZKBkP7ChDI/AAAAAAAAEw4/_zyfF2dlc2g/w720-h480-no/IMG_1394.png

The first idea was to use this, but when I tried to make it in the radio, it failed bigtime.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-gJdMH4j8UEw/UZKBjy4WICI/AAAAAAAAEw8/nFwWVNbZaKs/w720-h480-no/IMG_1396.png

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-zeSIjc_HTpc/UZKBlF8mvrI/AAAAAAAAExI/jCGBBbo7x2o/w720-h480-no/IMG_1409.png

So then I thought up a solution for the problem. Using screws instead.

And added an extension nut for bolting the motherboardtray on it.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-UfUks3vg5qw/UZKBnUrsatI/AAAAAAAAExg/NNlDfrhuoK4/w720-h480-no/IMG_1421.png

Then I checked if it was level.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pEXBdeeJKiA/UZKBodVHIbI/AAAAAAAAEx8/cPCredWeKxQ/w720-h480-no/IMG_1435.png

05-16-2013, 08:24 PM
Thanks Xeromist! Got enough room left now :) Think I'm gonna put the SSD and HDD under the motherbordtray.

The Mini GTX670 would be great with an ASUS Z87i-Deluxe motherboard ofcourse ;)

Ordered the Grill Cloth and Acrylic Tubes ... exciting!

Cygnitr0n
05-22-2013, 08:33 PM
Update!

Hey all! I'm back again! And did some work on the build again because the acrylic tube has been delivered!
Hold on to your pants because I have some bad news. It almost made me cry... *almost*

I've ordered the Grill cloth online and the one I had chosen was "Charlie". Yeah!
But today I got a mail about my order. It can't be delivered anymore because they don't make it anymore! H*ly cr*p! All these weeks... for nothing. Made up my mind and finally I had made a descission. All for nothing! So I thought about to order "Alpha" instead. But didn't. Yeah, why don't order "Alpha"? Because it's to thin and need a thicker grill cloth. So I ordered an alternative one. And what it is? Yeah that is going to be a suprise.

So let's leave the chatting and crying here and watch some pictures instead.


The tube that I orderd and clamps to hold it and some LED stuff for the "tubelight".
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-yCkKzF92N20/UZ0lJn_EFfI/AAAAAAAAE80/JYJ7NhdCzsw/w720-h480-no/IMG_1487+copy.png

And last but not least, 3 hours of polishing! *oooh the stinch is horrible*
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-7Rv5xtg4m3U/UZ0lLIUH9RI/AAAAAAAAE9E/qxMX1g4WXQQ/w720-h480-no/IMG_1501+copy.png

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-8wArQuE7WM0/UZ0lOLlUyzI/AAAAAAAAE-A/OGwy5MfS1Hc/w720-h480-no/IMG_1515+copy.png

So that was the update again! Next update I'm gonna solding the LEDstrip and then marry the Ledstrip with the Tube.
And hopefully I can let you all see what Grill Cloth I bought.

Till next!

I was thinking you could salvage the cloth from the front of an old speaker but that's pretty good and it's not moth eaten. :D

Hello readers,

Ready for an update? Here we go! Got a little suprise here going on. Especially for the readers that didn't like the idea that I should turn a radio into a PC.
So what happend? I bought an old Radio to turn it into a computer because I want to turn it back again into a radio. :eek:

*OMG what did he said?* Yes I did! :D

And some people asked me if I could make a movie, because they wanted to see the light and fan in full operation. So let's begin with just that.
