This looks really great. Great component selection!
Is that a custom IO cover? it looks really nice.
I can totally relate to the super long project period, it took me over two years to finish my scratch build!
How are you planning to handle the radiator? I'm guessing a desk stand style situation?
Looks sick, and I love those mods on the quadro.
Also nice to see the quadro used, I've been eyeing one for my build as well. I also dog that it does RGB, since I personally have no way to control that at all right now
Ah, yeah no issues with the barrel jack, I'm using a diy right angle style I found on ebay, plastic welded it together instead of using the o ring supplied.
I just made sure to make heavy use of heatshrink to thouroghly insulate the wires/contacts from each other
Let me know if that doesn't help of if you need more info, I'll be happy to do my best to explain.
again, I do believe the stock connector on the WLP350 is up to the task, I just built it poorly I think. probably the thick silicone jacket causing fitment issues resulting in hotspots on the...
My bad, I thought I included a pic of the modified PSU in my album!
I ended up removing the original header that mated with this connector (the one that melted a bit) and soldering in MR30 pigtails for ease of use on my end.
I genuinely believe that if I used standard PVC jacked wire and...
Interesting, I've just got mine running at full speed haha
I haven't noticed any noise over the noise floor of my house so it's all been peachy for me.
The fan is definitely over the noise floor but not in a way that matters like I said. :)
for now since dreamhack/ my house is louder than I'd like I just run the p12 redux 1700pm at full speed, so it's a smooth whoosh at supposedly 25dba.
whatever the actual noise level is it's a little higher than I'd like, but totally acceptable due to the tone. Don't notice any pump noise, though...
I'm calling it finished!
Rebuilt the wiring on the psu, wiring in MR30 power connectors directly to the PCB, and soldered in some lights to light up the PSU, and soldered the barrel jack into the same spot as the lighting.
The only tweaks left are non-critical-
