Screen hinges fitted!

February 13, 2011
Today and yesterday I have fitted the friction hinges. They are very strong so I had to strengthen the screen a bit. I then tested it(I have a video of it I might upload to youtube) tested the laptop and it worked perfectly fine. All I have to do now is fit all the screen wiring in and screw the back on!

 

Green Led's Installed!

February 10, 2011
Yesterday and today I have been installing all the green led's, the 12V gpu fans and I have hot glued everything in place and tidied up the wire. All is now finished for the bottom half, and I got the friction hinges today from America which is good! Over the February holidays I will install the friction hinges and get this laptop finished!

 

New Vent Cut

February 8, 2011
Today I cut a extra air vent on the cover for the exhaust from the 2 gpu fans. I want this laptop to run as cool as possible! The vent also looks nice, and when its finished I will put some green led's underneath it so it lights up!

 

Cover Cut Out!

February 7, 2011
Today after school I cut out all the holes and parts on the cover and tried it out and it fits perfectly! The ring of light looks really nice as it is only made up if pinholes of light. Tomorrow I will see if I have enough black spray paint and then paint it. I also need to get some screws to screw it on. Once I have done this I can install the green leds and then the friction hinges!

 

Speakers mounted and new cover marked out!

February 6, 2011
I have mounted the speakers in their places with a little foamex support underneath then to keep them at the right height. The speakers will not be attached at all to the cover so the cover can be removed easily. I also marked out and started cutting the new cover for and all the holes I need to make. I am hoping to get a cnc routed piece of acrylic for a front grill where hot air is exhausted out of the laptop.

 

Ring of light re-installed and volume controls!

February 5, 2011
A few days ago I installed the volume control and a switch for the amp, but I put them in the front, where the ring of light was. So I couldnt install the ring of light there anymore so I had to put it on the right. Today I made a little mount for it just above the usb ports. The friction hinges are also on their way from america, so they should come soon!
