"Red, White, and Blackie..."

777_completed.jpg

Current specs:
-Intel E7200 Core2Duo 2.53ghz, Coke shot to 3 ghz
-Asus P5KPL-C
-4gb OCZ Reaper 1066mhz ram
-160 Seagate 7200rpm HDD
-640 Western Digital Caviar HDD
-1TB Western Digital Caviar HDD
-Inno3d GeForce GTX260 Core 216
-Hec 500watts psu
-Orion 500watts generic psu

A really good friend of mine, who's a fan of Pan de Siosa Peanut, made me realize that it's possible to do 2 mods at the same time. And since my current computer has been around for a year, I just thought that it needs a makeover.

Since my current mod project, aptly named "Violet Reaction", will cause me to do a makeover on my room(aside from the casing), I decided to go all the way.

I've now named this certain project "Red, White, and Blackie", coming from the fact that this old Core 2 Duo, will be coming from a black(and definitely generic) Orion case. Also, since most filipinos in the province often name their dogs "Blackie"(regardless if its even the dog's actual color), eh tangina... I'll use this name as well. Besides, I went for a Black, Red, and White motif.

[Gawd... I usually mention "makeover" and "motif" like I'm from Queer Eye for the Straight ****]

Ok, thanks to Violet, my funding is running a bit low, so this particular mod aint really gonna be a "mod"... it's a scratch build. And its not that I hate trees, but I went for one of the cheapest materials around... PAPER PRODUCTS.

No, it wont be made of paper, just somewhat like it. I'm constructing this with 5% Bainbridge Cold Press Illustration boards, 5% BestBuy illustration boards, 5% transparent acrylic panels, 10 percent aluminum, and 75% FOAM BOARDS. Probably unwise right? But then, I plan to let everyone know that it's worth the time. And funny, TIME isnt a luxury that I have. I really want to finish this build in time for Violet's unveiling for my Finals project in school. So wish me luck, or a miracle.

This is my current control center. Yes, I know... it aint much, and it's real messy, but that will soon change. That red, green, and yellow thing that's glowing on top of the monitor is an amplifier, making it possible to use.......

.... the Sony speakers that used to be hooked up to my Dad's stereo component. He gave us the component, but nobody here uses it. So I decided to use the speakers on my pc instead. Now I've got myself a 5.1 setup. hehehe. That's Blackie right next to the sub.

Where most of my planning, cutting, and soldering happens.

Preparing the fans, and trying to assess how many I'll be using for this build. Researched on foam board's material-reaction in relation to heat. And you know what dumb Filipino celebrities usually say... "you can never have too many fans."

I have some use for this old Intel heatsink fan.

9mm acrylic straight from Binondo.

Update lang...

777_b11.jpg
Dismantled my table... getting really kinky with it. big_smile


777_b12.jpg
And painted the pieces of my table, these 2 in particular, will serve as my overhead shelf.

Bakit kapag sa pic, it doesnt look like an even surface? Shet.

Re: "Red, White, and Blackie..."

Did some work in school... it's nice to have access to the tools in the Industrial Design lab.

777_b13.jpg
Cut the 9mm acrylic panel that will serve as the base of the casing. Stopped at that point, para lang magmalaki on my cut using a band saw. Look at that straight cut. hehehe




777_b14.jpg
Acrylic cut, just have to sand the edges.





777_b15.jpg
This is me, sanding the aluminum L-beams that will be placed on the 4 corners of the acrylic.

Syempre, hindi nakatiis... she wanted to try it.





777_squatter.jpg
This is what my room looks like now, after devastating my computer table. Para akong squatter sa sarili kong kwarto. Everything will be nice and dandy in a few days. And my control center will be better. big_smile

@Reapervon

For the aluminum L-beams, I used a "bench grinder". But for the acrylic panels, "belt sander" yata sir... I dont know if its really called that. It looks like a treadmill, only wood, acrylic and other plastics are the ones that run on it. big_smile
