Build up Hope: Radipumps module

 

The Radipumps module is one of the trickiest pars to put in. It has to fit in the modified section of the case in a way that the inlet/outlet of the rads are also aligned with the holes in the case + Atlas top cover.

 

Lets see if all those parts fits together:

Hope's ready to receive the radipumps:

Oh yeah! It fits perfecly!

This is even better than expected!

Build up Hope: Tags

 

Of course, the original Harrison Radiator nametag was restaured:

Then, I (my wife) made an HOPE nametag:

I also painted blue the EK badge because the original one was way to shinny:

Build up Hope: Atlas cover 

 

This Atlas cover was pretty easy to assemble. It's basicly tight fit to the case and it's so tight that there's almost no mouvments once in place.

20220804_114044.thumb.jpg.9e3be212abb776414779dbcad3894372.jpg

 

The only things I added after the paint was a soft black edge protector around the sharp edge of the cover and a RGB strip inside.

There Hope's pictures

 

I took those pictures under the CN bridge at Pont-Rouge. Temperture was not perfect but the result is pretty good:

Spinning ring base

 

The second section of the project is the part that light/hold/blow up Hope Lantern; the base


To spin that base, I took the lazy suzan of my old broken patio table: 20220807_112954.thumb.jpg.fcc3d43f5b8cdd8a5dd0fa49f0dd6e52.jpg

 

and I gave him a second life:

Spinning ring base : center ring bracket

 

This part is the base bracket that hold the second fan, the RGB ring and Hope Lantern.

 

For the center, I took inner deflectors from the old Harrison radiator heater :

20220807_125152.thumb.jpg.4afb1e0a335b2c61c72cdebfbb2b7ec0.jpg

 

Added some paint :

20220801_081453.thumb.jpg.1fdf358293348feea1ad8796667555ad.jpg

 

And fixed them in the center of the bracket made with a modified/painted aluminium ring :

Spinning ring base : MasterFan

 

This Cooler Master MasterFan 200mm ARGB is the perfect one :

20210731_145819.thumb.jpg.5ed01d0e583849119757be64c008b75a.jpg

 

And I modified it :

Spinning ring base : ARGB ring

 

Hope Lantern will be illuminated via the base with this 12" selfie ARGB ring :

 

20220808_090205.thumb.jpg.e3d868ccf73a136c67070a61dcf32bb9.jpg

 

I cut the white dome shape diffusor in half and painted it. I also cut an acrylic ring to protect the PCB. Then, I reshaped few plastic sections of the bottom pars of the ring :

 

20220808_093155.thumb.jpg.ec2e995ebdc72c94922d3bcdd804555d.jpg

 

I also soldered the MasterFan ARGB wire direcly on the ring PCB and everything  work good.

 

The spinning base is almost done and looks pretty good now:

Spinning ring base : Filter

 

For that purpose, I made a dust filter with this dollar store cooking mesh :

20220808_114416.thumb.jpg.14b98f1c67bf9858b3afc079941beef0.jpg

 

That dust filter should do the work. I am not really satisfied with this black  tape look around the mesh but I'll keep it that way for now. I also added edges protector:

20220813_085914.thumb.jpg.c50ca4ae8471746bc92ce30d33158af3.jpg

 

*Edit:

I didn't like that mesh, so, I bought that 10" metal speaker grid:

20220825_080440.thumb.jpg.5a2a6e211c408dad5adb02bba1e37e47.jpg

 

It is the right shape:

20220825_080348.thumb.jpg.6aad001fbb5ab8d6f386a11d4077baee.jpg

 

Then, I did cut all around the frame to let it fit and stick with nanogel

20220825_080547.thumb.jpg.f9c8b5890b8635c8eec5f323c12ea586.jpg

 

Now I am satisfied with that mesh:

20220825_080700.thumb.jpg.030bb1007440e93f71229bfb9d655b29.jpg

End edit*

 

I also added this other mesh around to cover this opening between the ring base bracket and the LED ring:

20220813_085747.thumb.jpg.7be1217f0da553c7e1093e7d512ef99e.jpg

 

The base is now completed :

Lantern : Glass vase

 

The third section of the build  is the case itself and it is made of glass.

 

This was the first time I worked with this material and I have to admit, I was really nervous... and I still am... 

 

The chosen vase was found second hand on FB marketplace. This is the thing:

20220808_091703.thumb.jpg.d1abab99060edc83028ae651a9f4b00d.jpg

 

This glass vase needed 8 holes; 3 x 100mm for accessibility and air flow, 3 x 1/4" to hold the GPU/Mobo bracket, then 2 x 3/8" for the fittings. 

 

I filled the bath with water and slowly made those holes underwater:

20220808_124957.thumb.jpg.f9875d4ee1217ea3c48572501e16f34a.jpg

20220808_125122.thumb.jpg.68fcf87a75c82ee06fea4975389aea27.jpg

 

I also grinded all around where the holding  ring will be:

20220809_122145.thumb.jpg.bf967f3833ef55188ef935ad9acc760f.jpg

 

Wonderfull! Few dents but no crack:

20220714_125528.thumb.jpg.693f2630b3d96356643179ebc1abddb5.jpg

 

The holding ring is made of acrylic. Heavy duty epoxy was used to stick it to the vase. I used the same epoxy to glue those fittings:

20220808_125615.thumb.jpg.3ef51ba5e2a24acd161f97d50a7c9851.jpg

 

Now, lets see if this glass globe fits well on that holding ring :

20220808_130047.thumb.jpg.dbecb55d0a15bd7c58abe39248827bc1.jpg

 

Oh ! That fit like a charm!
