Hello, Welcome to the logs for GOLD RUSH. What is Gold Rush ? Gold rush is an exotic project with 24ct gold plated fittings, Backplate, and whatever else i can get my filthy paws on The case it's self will be, cut up, and resprayed in a white/gold flip paint. Featuring a parallel loop and a gold mine on the shroud, this project will be a show stopper. SPECS! We all love a good read at this part From Coolermaster Cooler Maser MasterCase Maker 5 Cooler Master V1000 PSU Cooler Master Masterfan airflow 140mm From Alphacool Alphacool Eisblock XPX CPU - Intel/AMD - silver matte Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 280mm radiator Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 280mm radiator Alphacool NexXxoS GPX - Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 M02 Alphacool Eisbecher 250mm Acetal reservoir Alphacool VPP655 PWM - G1/4 inner thread including Eisdecke D5 - Acetal V.3 Alphacool Eisrohr 16/13mm PETG HardTube Alphacool Eiszapfen 16mm HardTube compression fitting G1/4 Alphacool Eiszapfen angled adaptor 45° rotatable G1/4 outer thread to G1/4 inner thread Alphacool GPX SLI Connector - Single - Plexi Alphacool double nipple G1/4 outer thread to G1/4 Alphacool angled adaptor 45° - G1/4 revolvable - 2x inner thread Phobya 90 angle x2 From ASUS ROG ASUS Maximus IX CODE Z270 Motherboard ASUS Strix GTX 1070 OC Graphics card From Cablemod Gold / White Custom sleeved cables RGB-W Hybrid LED Lights +3 extensions From Team Group 16GB 4x4 @3466mhz T-Force XTREEM Gold. Other parts Intel Core i7 6700k @ 4.8ghz Design i've never been very good at 3D modeling software, so i do my best in words to describe the mess in the image lol. Now a few things to point out. The loop under the GPU will no longer be zig zagged, it will be a straight 45 degree angle from GPU to Shroud. Around the base of the reservoir and where the fittings meet the shroud, there will be pyrite fools gold set around them, like gold is forming around a hot chamber. The name ''gold Rush'' will be cut from the shroud, and filled with pyrite (Fools gold) for a more authentic look. Sponsor logo's on the front will be made from real 24ct gold leaf. The gold triangles you see on the case will be cut outs, and meshed for looks and ventilation. The mesh will be gold too. Time Frame I'm guessing at 4 weeks, as this is the biggest project i've undertaken yet and by all means the toughest work yet. Media Over the next 4 weeks i'll be doing a VLOG of the build progress, out on the road, at home, wherever i need to go, be sure it'll be on video. i expect 4 episodes 1 for each week. Don't fret, as pictures will be uploaded as i go for the project logs and social media. Teaser Now we can get this show on the road. PICTURES!!!! Fred is on hand to help me out! Cooler Master Masterfan Pro 140 - Air Flow fans https://imgflip.com/gif/1ikq7k][/url][url=https://imgflip.com/gifgenerator From ASUS, The mighty Maximus IX Code Strix 1070 OC Finally The Cooler Master Mastercase Maker 5 I got to work as soon as the case arrived. First i cut and fitted the front shroud (first of 2) You'll see what i mean later I then cut the rear I/o Cover thingy and fitted that Case / Motherboard / Fans and radiators are due into the auto shop on monday to get flip painted. So my next update before then will be the arrival of Alphacool products. Excited now it's all finally moving along. Will bring more updates as i continue.
Concept Lore : A relic lost in time chiseled out from the most potent tree of the Night silver Woods to celebrate the most fearsome generals of the ancients, the there spirit brothers, The living embodiment of three major forces of nature, Storm, Earth and Fire it is said that this ancient masterpiece releases a very powerful magic that resides in its core cleansing out the darkness with its colorful yet destructive powers when it reveals its hidden secrets. Concept : The concept of the mod is to infuse older methods of art into new technology. a blend of grace and power. so to do this i thought of using a big mahogany log as a rough canvass to carve out 3 of my most favorite characters from the Dota 2 universe and to build a mechanical system around it. The log is carved into 3 pieces with it's innards removed to accommodate the liquid cooled pc in the center. This two piece frame method is a new concept i came up with which lets the user to either use the central piece which is the actual system with all its components and a custom liquid loop built into a cylindrical bare bone shell i designed with the parts of a master case as a standalone unit which you can keep on a desktop, or use the whole setup on all of its glory with the cool outer frame with statues which acts as a buffer as well as a case to shield the hardware and all its internals from any misfortune and still have a way to showoff the beefy tech inside. with this new method if its built into an even a smaller compact form of a standard desktop tower, it lets the users easily clean or upgrade the machine without a hassle or just repaint and do all sorts of crazy things. The full case has 3 modes that we can use to control the unit to open and close it. Automatic , manual wireless and full manual override mode. The outer case which holds the statues and the carvings is controlled by an arduino with sensors which runs a small script that detects the temperature of the case and if it detects any temperature anomalies it will open up the bay doors(which are the swords) and lift up the case to let some cool air in and automatically close when the temperature is back to normal. the mod also has a remote controller which can manually open up the case from a distance whenever you feel like your case needs some fresh air or just want to show off or admire your build and it also has a manual override switch in case your arduino suffered a catastrophe and you ran out of battery on the remote controller because you kept opening and closing it just because its frigging amazing so i added that feature as a fool proof to save myself from the hassle of just loosing the remote somewhere which i already did! (shutout to the Chinese seller on eBay who sent me a backup remote!) the lifting mechanism is made with a linear actuator on a cross lift setup to hold the weight of the rig inside and a simple push pull arm mechanism is used to push the bay doors outwards like a flower. Every pattern and detail is hand carved with traditional wood carving tools with countless hours of concentration and elbow grease. the script and the lifting mechanism and the door opening system is originally made and fine tuned to make it work as neatly as possible with the resources i had at my disposal.
