  1. Here I will upload my build process of a Russian naval(?) radio found at a knickknack shop. No idea how it got to ZA, not asking where it came from (wish I knew what stories it told), and I'm gonna shred the insides. edit: Uploading my own pictures with some slight progress report, at least it makes for a better header than a stock image off the internet.
  2. SYSTEM COMPLETE! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Design Idea: so the inspiration of this build is to create a silent case build that's somewhat lan friendly. To accomplish this goal, I'm planning on making the ventilation internal, meaning none of the fans connect directly to the wall of the case. Instead, vents will be attached to the bottom and top allowing for the sound to be dampened and lowered in pitch. Additionally the walls will be acrylic, further dampening any noise. Side note: most of the parts are coming from an older build I did. The motivation for this build is to replace my old all-acrylic case which is falling apart and had terrible thermals due to poor ventilation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So to kick of the build log I'll start with what I'm working on at the moment. Currently I'm putting together the lightering and fan controller. I'm building a custom 4 inch wide drive bay for this to all go in. On the top there's the "arduino" TAU to control everything, a prototype board for all the connectors and a PWM board at the bottom. TIP: to avoid that annoying sound PWMs make, make sure the operating frequency is above the audible frequency a person can hear. Technically I've already got the main frame of the case welded (started in August), but I'll get to that later.
  3. Hello everyone! We are back again with another AMAZING project with Asus South Africa and Cooler Master South Africa! Dubbed Project Iris This system will be our first ever ALL IN ONE system! Looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you again, so let's begin... To give some context and reasoning behind the Iris build, many people spend many hours behind their computers. Whether you are a gamer, developer, creative artist, or corporate individual, at the end of the day (unless you are taking precautions) will suffer from a great deal of eye strain. Enter Project Iris, the system that will not only be raising awareness of this everyday issue, but will also highlight some features of the Asus brand that I'm sure some of you out there was not aware of. As this system is an AIO, it will contain the monitor built inside the chassis. This project is really exciting and I am honoured again to be working with Asus SA and Cooler Master SA! Being Sphinx Mods, we aspire to be the first in many regards, and push the boundaries for gorgeous mods that provide a true emotion and meaning behind them. With that being said, I will also be unveiling a new type of water piping, which would require one to be even MORE accurate when making runs to the various pieces of hardware throughout the build.
