  • Jay you should try to take a smaller pre built and customize the case in which a way maybe you 3d print new panels and mod them for more airflow and better look, idk. thanks for the content though appreciate it

  • Can you use the RGB controller to individually flash fans red in the same firing order as the actual motor? And then have the speed of that flashing be driven by the GPU or total system load?

    mirror71mirror71Dag siden
    • Looks like the answer is yes, at least with the Farbwerk 360 as the controller. You'd connect the fans to the controller in the right firing order, and then use the laser effect with speed controlled by your selected load input. Maybe extend the scale out to 200% because max speed seems to be faster than most LEDs will hit full brightness.

  • this is a cool project, but if the intention is to mount it into a racing sim chassis, would it not look awesome with say a 9x120mm rad mounted in front of it? then you could hide pumps etc under piston covers. so many possibilities though.

  • I Can't believe I only came across this video now, I love this idea of combining the pc into a racing simulator. How will you incorporate the power supply to match this I wonder, maybe perhaps hide as a Holly dominator ECU of some sorts. I can't wait to see this project in it's completed staged...

    Wessel PretoriusWessel Pretorius4 dager siden
  • i saw the exhaust ports provided enough airflow but still think it would be cool to see custom headers with maybe with fans at the ends for extra push/pull assist

  • You (or me), could design a or CPU cooler (or if its too hard, utilizing a Chev chrome cover) that looks/functions like a air cooler on top of the motherboard (circular chrome an actual engine air filter)...remove the cover to reveal the motherboard. I have an idea about the rads and front of the block. Holly shit. ..Jay I have a whole heap of ideas for your project.

  • It’d be cool if you ran LED strips in the both combustion chambers so the lights made the PC look as if the engine’s actually on since you could feel the heat through the exhaust ports. I’m not sure what kind of look you’re going for or how complicated you’d want to make the build, but it would also be cool if you made a supercharger to house the graphics card above the motherboard and added a “bug catcher” style blower where the intake vents would open based on the clock speed of the fans to simulate throttle response or engine workload.

  • I know I'm a little late to this but any time you're dealing with casted materials like that they will usually use a release agent to get it out of the cast. You need to wash it with dish soap to get it off. Similar to resin models.

  • Lifter valley oil baffles protect the bottom of your intake from hot oil splashing out of the lifter bores. Lightweight aluminum tray holds the lifters in their bores, preventing the loss of oil pressure or possible bearing damage in the event of push-rod or rocker arm failure. Yes lifter valley.

  • Since you're using 480 mm rads, since you put 4 fans on each side, you could set up the lighting to reflect the firing order of each cylinder... that would be pretty damn cool. :) Also, for holding the radiators down onto the block, what about the old-school valve cover wing-nuts in chrome?

  • get an actual junk transmission and cut the bell housing off and use that to hide the wires coming out the back. If it were my build I would hog out the valley and set the MB down in there and find someone to vacuum form a Lexan (or some thin plastic) mold of an actual manifold as a cover, we had a rig in school that did that.

    Transgender.Mutual.Gaming&RetroTransgender.Mutual.Gaming&Retro12 dager siden
  • For your radiators, you could cut thin strips of metal with screw holes that line up with the radiator holes and screw holes that line up with the valve cover bolt holes. Insert small enough screws or pegs through the valve cover holes in the thin strip of metal so that they can drop/slide into the valve cover bolt holes. Then screw the strip to the radiator and you will then be able to set the radiators onto the heads! Can't wait to see what you do with this! edit: You could even use automotive plastic push pins so that its pressed on and could still be pried or pulled off. I would also use some sort of gasket or thin double sided tape to seal the radiators to the heads.
