TUREMETAL Case for Dual CPU. EOI


Recommended Posts

Sorry to throw this in at late stage, if other are not too bothered about additional height. Why can we not keep the footprint the same, but have it double the height? this way we could house a series of options on the 2nd tier?

 

- HDPlex DC/DC

- OCXO Clock board like Pinkfaun for CPU & Chipset (short cable connections)

- LPS parts. For me taking a Sean Jacobs LPS parts for example, sitting them on the 2nd tier would mean very short cable runs. A two tier heatsink means we could add additional cooling to LPS. We're not talking much in height just enough for the height of Transformer. 100mm say. I believe the existing Turemetal is 150mm in height, so 250 height overall.

-EtherRegen

-  Whatever you want really

 

I think this gives the DIYers more flexibility.

Take a look at Taiko Extreme.  They mount the transformer on end.  The Toroidy 400 is 65 x 150 Dia.  So long as the case internal is min 160 ht. should be good to go.  Then can also orientate horizontally.

As is, the Sage motherboard won't fit into the case.

 

If we are going to design something custom, all aspects of the size should be on the table.

Ultimately it needs to be a consensus.

Based on agreed functionality, pitted against cost.

We also want it to look cool.

 

We could open this to Turemetal to comment on and cost.

 

Ultimately we need to design this like Musk

Not Job.

What ever that implies...

@Nenon Our build needs to be as democratic as possible. But a design by consensus may just be that. An acceptance of a base standard, one that I am not necessary supportive of.

 

You have illustrated your views in a concise manner and I am fully behind this. I also think that there may be some resonance issues too. All power parts (TX in particular) hum, these are sure to have some effect on the motherboard and the parts therein.

But if we are able to have the case just wide enough, then few of the 10 could put what they want in that and rest not. I would personally follow your recommendation and put the regulators inside, possibly clock too.

 

We are firming up, I feel.

I hope we can have one more show of faith,

Then wish for the 5 people with wavering commitment to tip over.

Lets get this case done - soon!

 

Incidentally:

1. Turemetal noted that they are fully confident of their TDP design. They have tested their heatsink design to ~280W.

2. They recommend max outer height of 150mm. Cost will be a big issue after that.

3. They want us to give them the internal dimension. Then they can propose the way forward.

Hi, I just saw and read this thread now and I must say, that it’s sound and looks good, so if I am not to late, I am in, If they can do this for about $1,000. 

 

You are actually number 10.5 in the list :).

Folks,

Turemetal is a one man band. He has been very busy, and has pushed us to the back...... He said he will send some drawings last week  and I have been leaving him alone.

Will update when I am given more information.

So nothing from Truemetal. I have contacted him two weeks ago, when he was still keen. But I have now lost my patience and the interest that kept me going.....

I will consider this thread to be in furlough, possibly dead?

 

Apologies for the hope!

Thank you for trying!

 

I am actually quite happy with the way I did the passive cooling as described here:

 

My computer has been running like this for 3-4 months already, and it keeps getting better over time (not sure why but it's a fact). CPU temperature is in the low 40's now. 

 

You may also want to keep an eye on the thread below... It's still on, at least for now. 

 

 

Yes. 

It is active. But first I need to have in my hands the Ram chips to power up the beast! This is what I have been waiting for...

RAM is coming. I have been waiting 4 months for it, but it's finally here!
