Thread: Project: PrometheusCu

    Small update. I wanted to upload these pics last night but Photobucket had other ideas.

    I've started ordering my hardware for this project. In the form of Brighton Socket Cap Allen Bolts, and Coutersunk Allen Bolts.
    I still havent got my hands on the smaller bolts as they were special order, but here's the big stuff.
    The below sizing ranges from 4-40, to 1/4-20 - I've ordered a couple hundred in each size.





    I got 100 carbide rods, the purpose of these will be revealed much later.


    With those come six 36"x1/2"x1/16" copper flat bars. I will be bending these to fabricate cable ties and wire harness brackets.




    Also, 15' of 3/8" split loom tubing - this will be used on the Pico watercooling tubes, and on a couple wires that wont be seen.





    I also started bending my prototypes, and as expected I don't have the tools to do this to the level that I desire.

    In light of this I've taken the liberty of sending the whole fabrication of these parts to China.
    I will have a Chinese company fabricate these things to perfection from copper plate in the near future.
    The parts that I have will work perfectly for what I intended them to do - these aluminum bits will be installed to allow me to continue fabrication of other parts. Also I've already made a couple of design changes that will be applied to the final copper bits.




    Thanks for reading, more to come very soon.

    Lots of bolts. I can't wait to see those pieces made of copper.

    Minor Update:
    I've decided to add another loop to the mix for the motherboard - and it had to be fairly small to fit, so I've made a little order from Performance-PCs.

    Products
    3 x Chomerics Thermattach® T412 Conductive Tape
    1 x Enzotech Forged Low Profile Copper Northbridge Heatsink
    1 x Thermaltake CL-O0027 TG1 Extreme High Grade Thermal Grease
    2 x Bitspower Rotary Fitting "T" - 180 Degree Water Cooling Accessory - Black Sparkle Finish
    2 x Bitspower Case Top Water Fill/ Through Hole Fitting Set
    2 x Bitspower Dual G1/4" High Flow Fitting - Male to Male Thread
    2 x Koolance Tubing Spring Wrap, Black [10mm, 3/8"]
    10 x PrimoFlex Pro LRT Black Tubing -3/8in. ID X 1/2in. OD
    1 x Black Ice® GT Stealth 120 Highest Performance Radiator
    10 x Bitspower Premium G1/4" High Flow 3/8" Fitting - Black Sparkle Finish
    4 x Enzotech Pure Forged Copper Ramsinks
    4 x Koolance Tubing Spring Wrap, Black [13mm, 1/2" ID; 19mm, 3/4" OD]
    1 x Sunbeamtech Notebook Memory Heat Spreader
    1 x Yate Loon 120x20mm Medium Speed Thin Silent Case Fan - D12SM-12C

    I have a somewhat vague vision of cramming in another 120mm rad and Aquastream pump along with Mosfet/NB/SB coolers.
    If I can make it work it will add yet another level of difficulty, and fun.

    I'm revising my part drawings as well to accommodate the new parts + some minor errors I hadn't seen early on.
    More to come as soon.

    Since I want to minimize the airflow resistance on the main radiator mounted on the bottom of the unit I'll need to construct some feet that are 2.5-3" tall.

    Aesthetically this is no easy task, and not something that I've addressed to date.

    I've spent the past few hours in Illustrator trying to solve this large dilemma.

    I've come up with the image below.
    The intent here is to use a bunch of carbon fiber panels spaced ~0.5" apart to make a sort of skeletal base structure.


    *click for big*
    I've come up with a few extra surprises to go with this base design.
    However...I'd like to ask what you all think of the concept first.

    Note:
    I've already devised a way of incorporating the PROMETHEUSCU logo into the mix - it was simply too complicated for me to be bothered drawing in perspective (at this time).
    My intent is to put and LED in between every layer to allow crazy lighting effects
    The flat part seen at the very bottom of the illustration acting as a flat base will be the uber carbon panel, shown earlier.

    I'd love to hear your opinions and suggestions on how to add feet to this rig.

    Thanks for helping and reading!

    Awesome sketch! That is going to look amazing when you start getting it laid out. I can't wait.

    Those feet are fantastic, takes the mod to a whole new level (literally) lol.

    Will you be making the spines from copper or alu?
