Albus Aurum Cuprum [HTPC\XBMC\STEAMBOX]

Recommended Posts

all the hardware has been installed and setup win 7 with xbmc already,
run a 3dmark Firestrike run, (it has not been oercclocked in anyway so the scores aren´t special.)
 
 
Everything works fine so now i have to wait for the PSU to arrive just to make sure that everthing will fit the way i want (so there will be coming more Pictures before we start on the modding of the case )
 
Until then enjoy the Pics .

Testing the hardware on water and do some minor overclocking (since i was curious on what the cpu and apu has to offer)
well the benchmarks did´t say much but the gaming was alright (you have to keep in mind there is no dedicated GPU)
and for that it performs really well.
 
I was able to get it to 4.4 GHz stable and the Temps where as expected around 30-35 Celsius. (thats just AMD)
Once my dedicated GPU arrives or better said I choosen one ,i will try to get this Cpu to 4.6 (thats my Goal :) )
But i am looking for a Gpu that will be able to handle 4K video and some better game performance.
 
and i also started to remove all the stickers (for that Cleaner Look)

happy easter!!!
 
I thought on starting to get the radaitor on there ,and work my way up from there,
got this nice idea of routing fittings under the case and inside,
 
next i will have to order some more fittings to see if my idea will work out :)
 
Here are a few pictures .

PACKAGE TIME!! :)
 
Recieved a small package of some fittings and temp sensors from Performance-Pcs.com today.
 
Most of the fittings i have recieved lately for this project are mainly for this one purpose. (check ou the Picture )
This is mainly for estathics and not for performance or purpose.
 
Hope you like it :)
 
Stay tuned for more.

i also would really much like to install a few digital meters,
 
Flow sensor Display,
leak seansor display,
and of course temp sensors with display.
 
But we will see what is possible without making it crouded.

The panels have almost all been painted.
Working on some routing of the watercooling loop and partplacement

Waiting on sleeved cables (since it is a modular psu it will be a full set ,not extensions)

Test fitting a loop with acrylic pipes first

Since i need some tools for copper first.

Then next week i am hopefully able to make another order for fittings and adapters.
This will get the project moving .

Then i have to shop for the window parts.....and some acrylic to make the inside more clean.

These are the plans so far.
Just wanted to give those of you hwo follow a short update so you know that i havent give up on it. ☺

Stay tuned..IMG%7Boption%7Dhttp://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/04/eee52ce98c42f0a82bc3badbec6b50a7.jpg%7Boption%7Dhttp://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/04/9ee0e7dd525e5fc5b20e5d3813914e2b.jpg]

Sponsorship package from icemodz.com
These look awsome like always,still missing some cables though,wich will come in the near future.
also haven´t decided on Gpu yet,(so for the time beeing i will just be going with the onboard gpu.
(wich performed alright after some tweaking and overclocking)
And i also started on the loop (trying to make it look clean and easy swappable for the gpu )

Have a nice weekend all of you
