    Default [Build Log] Project Mini Me - M-ATX Phantom, 3820, RIVG, 7970, watercooled

    The Plan:


    Make a Phantom go from this:



    To this:



    And stuff a whole lot of awesome in it.








    A couple things to note about this build:
    -The above pic was done in MS Paint as a reference point. The plan is to shorten the height by 6" and the length by 3.5".
    The final will have 2 5.25" bays and 2 3.5" bays
    -The power supply will mount sideways in the bottom-front, like in silverstone cases.
    -The final will not have a 200mm fan in the top, though it will likely have one in the bottom, similar to my last build.
    -Door design is still being decided.

    Thanks! I have a small amount of experience in build logging, since this is my second computer build log. I built 2 motorcycles previously as well, but never kept a central log on them. My last build log was for my Red Rover build, and is on OCN. I took a lot of inspiration for my log format from PhillyD and MyBadOmen.

    Anyway, not much of an update until I get some stuffs in, but I ordered the paracord and some tools today. As this thing gets moving I'll do my best to log all tools and materials I use as well.
    I ordered 200' of red camo nylon 550 paracord and 50' of thin red line nylon 550 paracord from mrparacord. I would've ordered more of the latter but thst's all they had.
    I alsi ordered 48 male and 48 female atx pins, some black connectors, ATX pin removal tool, and a Molex crimper from Frozen CPU. When I get more funds I'll order a molex tool as well. Gonna do my best to go heatshrinkless.

    New Case!!! This is my third Phantom Full Tower!



    I got it in white/red for the red LEDs, since I'll be sandblasting and painting it anyway.





    I believe this is revision 3.0 for the Phantom, since it has updated drive bay locks. I believe 2.0 only had a revised fan controller PCB and an added USB 3.0 port, since those were the changes my second Phantom had in camparison to the first.



    It even has a new hardware box. Sorry for the bad focus on the first pic.








    Here's a pic of my old, jealous Phantom in pieces.



    Some of the hardware for this build (before I had to send the mobo back for replacement)



    A pic of the capacitor I replaced on my Diamond 7970 (front left)



    And a few pics of my Mad Max PSU. Those extensions won't be used in this build; I'm going to sleeve the PSU as well as build new sleeved extensions. The hole on one side is where the wires used to come out when this was in my previous build. For now I just flipped the metal shroud.





    And here's what the Paracord colors look like.

    My overdue holiday update:


    I hope everyone that celebrates had a great Christmas; over the last few days I got my sleeving stuff in and got some stuff done!
    Here's a shot of all the stuff I got in.



    I wasted no time building the first cable extension, a 6 pin PCIE.



    I later found this approach rather troublesome, as for some reason the male pins kept getting stuck in the plug. So now I'm building the female end of the plug and sleeving the wires before I start the male end, so I don't waste more pins. But I managed the first cable.



    After boring out the connectors with a box knife on the first extension, I decided that took too long and didn't have the cleanest finish, so I opted for my trusty $35 35k RPM rotary tool from Harbor Freight for the rest of them.



    Quick an easy.



    And here's the other tools I used.

    FrozenCPU crimper
    Walmart Wire tool
    wire cutters
    box knives
    FrozenCPU atx pin removal tool
    scissors
    electrical tape


    Today I managed finishing the business end of the 8 pin PCIE as well. But I'm tired and burnt out already for the day at sleeving.

    Another update.
    First I took out the 3.5" drives so I could do some test fitting.



    Unfortunately, the front fan mount protrudes to far inward, moving my PSU back too far. To remedy this, I will cut off the fan mounts and weld them back on flush with the front. There is still plenty of room for a 25mm wide 140mm fan up front.



    Just another day, working on a power supply...



    And here's the finished result. If I had the pns and connectors to make the SATA cable detatchable, I would have made a multi SATA extension and left tha cable short. I like short cables for less clutter, and I also decided against sleeving the wires that aren't seen in the build. Too much work when there's so much more to be done for the rest of the build.



    Now we're getting somewhere... No plastic on the case (except for the feet that I forgot to take off before the pic).



    Oh snap! Dissassembly complete!



    ALL RIVETS MUST DIE. (drilled these out with a power drill btw )



    Too bad these won't fit in my build. They were awesome in the last one.





    I also have a 25lb box of crushed walnut shells to blast the case. I hope to sandblast the case this week and maybe even start cutting.

    Sorry for the lack of updates; things are moving slow since I now have another co-project, a model of a '56 Ford F-100 that I'm modding with '07 GT500 running drivetrain and misc parts, as well as some crazy stuff. It's brushing up on my plastic skills so it ties in. Speaking of which, I cut down the front panel today! I needed to do this first to find out how much I can cut the height of the case itself. I can't cut the top panel yet though because the length change is dependant on clearance inside the case, which I still need to do.


    Here it is after I cut it down. I used my rotary tool for the preliminary cuts, then a box blade for the closer cuts, and finally sandpaper to fine tune it before I glued it together. You can see the significant height difference. It's 5.125" shorter.



    Here it is with glue on it, tape to hold it in place while the glue dries.
