    Default Sabranco Humvee Video from CES added

    Hi evryone

    Long time since I've been online but back now with a fairly quick mod. Seems like life have been getting in the way of my hobbies. Been hard at work on fixing up my garage so i can do more modding in a nicer place


    A while ago i got contacted and offered to do a computer mod with some new parts and even if i don't have a lot of spare time it seemed like a fun idea.

    The idea was to make a mod with the new Asus Sabranco board in a Hummer. Took me a long time to find a hummer that would fit a full size motherboard.

    Components.
    Asus Sabertooth mark S
    Intel 4690
    Intel SSD
    Cooler Master Nepton cooler
    Asus Strix GTX 980
    Kingston fury ram 32gb, 2 white and 2 black



    Only spent half an hour on the hummer shell so it's not all there



    After a few weeks i found one in Taiwan that was big enough.

    1/6th scale

    Beer can for scale

    Body removed


    The board, i like it


    The PSU, have had a few of these and they have always worked good, so why not another one
    [IMG]http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/...psf8c642dd.jpg[/IMG]
    I was in such a rush i forgot to take pics of the GPU but i will post a bit later of the finished gpu.

    On to the modding
    Had to remove a lot of the electronics in order to fit all the parts. Would have been nice to have it drivable but prefer it to look nice in the end.

    First up the a tray for the psu. Milled it out of polycarbonate. Was a bit tricky to find a good spot for it but in the end it sorted itself out. Only need 4 holes but added a few more for flexibility in case i want to move it a bit


    Acrylic support for the SSD.


    Psu and ssd mounted. Yes, it's secured by a shoestring. The psu was a pressfit so not worried but i think it looks good.


    Next update more of the integrated rollcage for MB and GPU! Here its only in mdf, when its finished it will be out of aluminum

    Thanks for all the comments guys! Appreciate it. Technically it will be driveable but sending it to CES in January so will remove a bit of the components for weight reasons. Also you can't ship batteries so would need to connect the motors to the PSU and not sure i wanna do that. Also with my mad skills i would mosty likely crash it straight away and have a broken car and a broken PC

    on with the modding.

    Did a test fit with the mdf rollcage. I/o panel fits quite good but think i will lower it another mm into the frame to get the whole motherboard a bit closer to the panel.


    The hummer had very large hole after i removed the weapons, decided to make a cover for it and install a fan there instead. Milled out of acrylic and will be painted a bit later. Still has a small hole for a on/off button but need to have a think about what i want to do with it.


    Cut a slot in the back panel and removed some support material in order to get the motherboard and GPU to fit. Still needs some cleaning up but need to make sure everything fits before i make it look nice.


    In order to get a flush fit between the GPU and the back panel i made an 2mm aluminum back plate. For some reason i programmed the chamfering around the dvi port a bit wrong so i took too much off. Shouldn't have watched tv while programming Will still be good for a test fit


    New stickers for the fans. The original strix stickers didn't really fit the build.


    First idea for the Hummer and GPU would be to use plastidip. Everyone seems to be liking it and it looks decent in pictures. So bought a few cans and tried it on the GPU. After trying it twice i decided to use normal paint. It didn't look right, it had quite an uneven surface and it just felt cheap. I guess for a motherboard with lots of components and uneven surfaces its not so noticeable. So here is the final pic of the GPU with normal spray paint.


    Last but not least did decide to have a test run of the components. Have had the motherboard for quite some time but hadn't gotten around to test it. Have never gotten a dead mb so wasn't so worried. All worked fine except the gpu, in the end it needed a shielded pcie riser from 3m, tried a few different ebay cables but non of them worked. The 3M ones are expensive but seems to be bulletproof.


    More updates coming soon

    Thx! Worklog will be updated regularly as the mod is more or less complete. Just need to space it out a bit otherwise it will just be a mess

    Back with more progress.

    The bracket for the Radiator/roof mount


    Part of the rollcage, getting a hang of the mill now, getting great surface finish without the need for sanding


    All parts of the rollcage assembled, seems to be very stable.


    Quick test assembly with the motherboard.


    Some support brackets for the GPU


    As always there is something you don't plan for. Had to change one of the sides to make space for the PCI-e riser.


    Decided to powedercoat the black bits and the white is just normal spray paint. Think the back bit will look better together with the hummer once its painted.


    Time for some primer!


    And some white paint!

    Had to see how it looks together with the wheels, still missing bits and doing the windows,


    More coming soon!
