      Due to technical issues, the topic on "AM4 Socket Support" has disappeared. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we are trying our best to have this topic back up as soon as possible.   As we read in the topic, there is a lot of discussion going on when the new brackets will be arriving.

Once a modder ,always modder. Well my body rested for few days after Slick completion , but damn brain kept on crunching data so here i am again with something more rebelious and less polished , a plastic punk project 8) .20170302_215157.thumb.jpg.5987ee2931caf769450bcaec6d517354.jpg

Here's materials what i've managed to gather so far : two 11 liters plastic punch bowls, 2 meters of electrical sleeving ,ca. 10 meters of round foam sealant ,bunch of welding wire of various gauges, brass bushings and some drive chain elements for bling.20170302_215500.thumb.jpg.44d923e1c55f3e46f6f4001f4f740082.jpg

When i did that another idea poped up:camera720_1488492428407.thumb.jpg.e5fcec8d866fdbb22aec777ee76f28ef.jpgVoila, instant frag granade pc case .I chuckled like mad scientist for a while and decided to keep that idea for rainy days. What i am really planning to do is based around character King Mob from comic book by Grant Morrison ,Invisibles .King Mob mask to be precise.20170302_215741.thumb.jpg.cf5c2ff91aee6696ea52787934fc60cf.jpg

I hope this baby will fly .

Nice and easy , i'll better warn You guys that i am going to free-style crap out of this baby and cross every bridge when i get there :grin:. No idea yet as to what i am going to use for hard ware ,worst come ,i will canibalize Iggy a build that i am using for gaming.No sweat. So far i've scavanged some nice mesh from old home theater speakers and made some sketches for the layout:

Here's bottom bowl sketches ,mesh ,intake fan and hardware. Most likely i'll spread components to allow better air circulation so mobo will end up at intake fan level.Loving all this improv aproach so far lets see where it'll take me.Byo.

All right ,made some modest progress, nothing fancy just stuff that had to be done:20170307_155025.thumb.jpg.87983e9ccbbc18ada484f1ca25fe59ab.jpgcut outs for mesh20170307_181852.thumb.jpg.0baacf23805a1115b68c865953ab24bf.jpg

a little bit of foam for fitting20170308_214849.thumb.jpg.e7d00a482c50cb1706859ee354b0e7ce.jpg

most likely gonna paint the bottom bowl black.

Hope to start working on  something more exciting this weekend :

 My wife just rolled her eyes.....

Well ,things happened ,a lot of cutting some grinding and a lot of fitting and re fitting .Typical case of Spontanous modding if You will.

20170314_222856.thumb.jpg.5544ca28800888922df5bbe15625ce91.jpg

plastic replaced by heavy duty stainles steel mesh.20170314_222027.thumb.jpg.3e7e0b365587fa8f658fbcc336f21ffc.jpg

cut outs in bottom and upper bowl for air intake were made and 120 mm fan was temporaly mounted for sake of demonstration ,still waiting for CM fan to arive

20170314_221155.thumb.jpg.5ea06df7960d3a580fb3f27f02bb16d9.jpg

piece by piece King Mob is coming in to existence.

here's glimpse of hardware in action running linux out of live usb stick with 4gb persistent file mimicking hard drive.

Mobo ,psu 500w ,cpu and ram were donated by my beer buddy Ukobach , God bless his heart (its not hoarding when You have enough storage space heh heh). Thats it for the moment until next burst over the weekend

I think i call it a day, bit high on fumes :grin:

A lot of painting happened :

20170319_191524.thumb.jpg.1d71a2afb6e124452d2f92f3f60e8ef5.jpg

two brass bushings were inserted and secured with silicon

20170319_192325.thumb.jpg.fbd4fe94b30bbd237b202c6ca248e943.jpg

decided to sand off original paint from front mesh so they pop out a little

20170319_194511.thumb.jpg.65c89f4d0c9f7d1a968ce524881c6336.jpg

now we getting somewhere...20170319_194726.thumb.jpg.5d4f54975755b762bd215e0d9fe55a0d.jpg

most likely gonna put steel wire inside pipeing to keep it in desired shape and position

20170319_210435.thumb.jpg.3100d1efd43d6e0be6dc3b8c2132f959.jpg

not 100% shure about this piece, may have to use if nothing better comes my way. Very tempted to start on the wig all ready cos its a part i am really excited about but on the other hand shoulda start putting hardware into bottom part of build ...maybe just flip the coin and let the fate decide ? We'll see.

welding wire turns out to be perfect for wig sceletton.20170401_215656.thumb.jpg.fa53b25f11cd4725280c9b036620a757.jpg

uuuuh shiny20170401_215812.thumb.jpg.fa389cb7c2285d448381696740916267.jpg

Yep, it's getting more interasting.Plot thickens and so are hairs on the wig:

20170403_212456.thumb.jpg.7509e373c47f0a5e2d4df19200ba5cb5.jpg

A lot of masking tape died here20170405_000239.thumb.jpg.398b81cbeac7624cd0a47287f4c07f96.jpg

First layer of hairs laid and painted with acrylic paint. I've thought that 60 meters of foam will do, silly old me ,i am going to need at least another 60 m for final layer,oh well...oh yes on the left You can see bike helmet replacement lense that i am going to use as a visor for mask.
