  • Project Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth (E-ATX In Win D Frame Mini)

    Attention: This is a project that started May 2015, several updates will be uploaded shortly after each other since they are not current but older updates.

    Hola! Me llamo piscina de la muerta!
    It's time for a new casemod and this time with my favorite Marvel character as the theme.


    Deadpool banner finished 2.1.jpg

    Ever since the test footage leaked I've been planning to do a casemod with Deadpool as the theme, when it was announced that they agreed to a movie and with the release date of the 12th of February 2016 I was overjoyed.
    The idea's I had where quickly put back into the freezer due to the large amount of work I was putting into starting my own custom design company this year.

    Then in May I saw a picture of an In Win D Frame Mini in the perfect color and that's where the ball started rolling.

    The first parts came in a while ago

    In Win sent over one of their red anodized D Frame Mini cases.


    As soon as the case came in I started taking measurements to see how much space there is and what is possible, the case is made to work with a Mini-ITX motherboard but soon I found out there was a lot more space.

    I started with the design of a custom motherboard tray, the motherboard size was soon lifted to Micro ATX.
    A little while later I decided to put my old Maximus IV Extreme Z (E-ATX) in there to see if ATX would fit and....well here things changed a lot, E-ATX fits fine and I decided to make this the most extreme build in a D Frame Mini to date (correct me if I am wrong)



    But you can't design a custom tray with only images to go on so a few days after my birthday I went out and bought myself a few gifts

    The ASUS Rampage V Extreme and two Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD's which will be sunken into the tray.



    Quick photo of how the Rampage will be placed inside the case



    At this moment the motherboard tray is still in the design fase and that will take some time, here are two images of the current progression of the final version, there have been a few test versions before this design.





    The tray will be milled from 12mm thick aluminium, cables will be sunken into the backside of the tray just like the SSD's and the whole tray will be anodized red (or black) in the end to match.

    This is it for now, I am hard at work to get to the next step

      Still working on the motherboard tray but in the meanwhile I got some packages.

      First I received the DDR4 Blitz RAM from Avexir



      Looks good on the motherboard but it needs some customization so lets get the calipers



      The final parts that I needed for the tray design came in, I needed the ultra thin SATA cables from Silverstone and the switches, the other parts are a valve and a deburrer but for now those are for my other casemod



      I am finishing the tray design this week and then it will go to the CNC milling company to have it made since I do not own a CNC mill Will put up the final design of the tray.

      Already working on the other custom part, a radiator mount to be mounted on the side for some cooling power, for anyone thinking I could fit a radiator inside the frame, you are correct but a small radiator doesn't do it for me :P

      Got some more parts coming in this week, I hope to receive the tray somewhere near the end of this month so I can start mounting the board and all the parts.

      See you at the next update

        Renders!!!

        After 4 nights of hard work, solving a lot of dilemma's and some changes in my plans I am finally done with the design of the motherboard tray .
        At the same time I gave myself a new version of my logo, looks a little nicer.

        The tray offers support for the E-ATX form factor Rampage V Extreme, cable channels for a 24 pin and 4x8 pin to supply two high end GPU's of power.

        The backside with the channels, SSD placing cut outs, clear cover on the right and a red cover on the left to do some laser engraving on.



        The frontside has the holes for the cable channels, SSD power and data cables and the mounting holes for E-ATX.



        To make this tray design perfect before having it made I had some 1:1 scale prints made to check everything, I put those on the standard tray and checked for imperfections, changed a few things to make everything work (At least I hope).



        And the other side (uncut).



        These where some quick pictures and my apologies for the smudges, the lens wasn't clean I see.

        I hope the tray is finished soon so I can continue on some other parts Some parts I am already working on like the radiator mounts and pump mount, I'm still ironing out the kinks on that.

        To end this update, here is a picture with the current hardware on the print, looks like it will work fine.

            Still a few updates more to catch up to the current progress, so here are a few more, had to wait with these until I got my hands on my other Hard Drive with the photo's.

            The card for the project came in.

            The MSI GTX980 Ti Gaming 6G is currently in my HAF Pipe system for testing (and OC'ing)


            Also the MSI 980 TI 6G block isn't out yet

            As soon as the motherboard tray and PSU get in I can start making the custom cables, the two covers for the back of the tray will be cut, some covers cut and the system will be ready to go with me to Insomnia 55.

            The next two weeks are going to be very busy.

            A different update
            Long time no updates but finally things are moving quicker again, the motherboard tray is being milled at the moment (by a life saver from Denmark).
            Sleeving equipment and materials will arrive somewhere next week, I do not yet have a PSU but that will of course also come in.

            Yesterday I received the CPU and cooler that I ordered, a 5820K for now cooled by a Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3.
            There are two reasons for this aircooler, the first being that watercooling before Insomnia 55 would not be done well enough, the second reason is that this is the largest cooler I could get that does not cover the nice RAM



            Also the MSI 980 TI 6G block isn't out yet

            As soon as the motherboard tray and PSU get in I can start making the custom cables, the two covers for the back of the tray will be cut, some covers cut and the system will be ready to go with me to Insomnia 55.

            The next two weeks are going to be very busy
            Some time later

            The amazing CNC work from Peter Uhrskov Berg on the custom motherboard tray for Project Deadpool, he is done with this side and will be doing the other side soon.

            Can't wait to get it in and put it on the D Frame Mini.
            This part makes the In Win D Frame mini hold an E-ATX motherboard, 2x 2,5 inch drive sunken into the tray and the ultimate cable management by using grooves for the 24-pin and up to 4x 8-pin cable to supply two GPU's.

            Here are some photo's of the part that he sent me, the other side is being done tomorrow.

            The first grooves are cut



            Remaining grooves made



            First side completed









            Tomorrow the other side is being done and then it shouldn't take too long before I get it in to fit in the D Frame Mini

              So it finally came in yesterday, no time for quality pictures yet but I couldn't keep this for myself so here it is.

              The backside with the channels, SSD cutouts and a little spot for my sponsors and something Deadpool which will be added in a later stage near completion
              20944595501_49c750c016_h.jpg


              Only thing left to do on this side is to thread the holes for the 6-32 UNC stand offs I got from In Win (M3 stand offs where not available in the short thread length needed)
              20937208615_3fc40eda76_h.jpg


              I could not have wished for a better fit with the SSD's, they still move enough to be pulled out with ease but also rock solid
              20749152690_87427bf817_h.jpg


              This is it for now, today I fly to Insomnia and I'll be back on Monday evening, photo's made with the professional setup will be here halfway next week

              This weekend I am also naming two new sponsors that liked to support Project Deadpool (and upcoming) really excited for Insomnia even though this rig isn't playable :/

              Hope you guys like it and more soon

                      I'm back with another update, back in January I was working on the Radiator Pack and the image below shows how that came to look (there were still mounts to add)
                      Waterpack2.jpg

                      Sadly recently the company that would fabricate the bend tubing replied to me saying their machines can not handle the small diameter tubing so I am forced to put this back in the fridge and start a new design for the watercooling parts.

                      More as soon as I have something to show

                        How did you get the 1:1 scale prints to check the positioning of stuff? Was it from any print store like Kinkos? Also, were you just able to provide them with the CAD files and they knew what to do with them or did you have to convert it to some other format first?

                          There is a specialized printing store one village over, I supplied a 1:1 scale PDF A2 file (made with Solidworks eDrawings) that they simply print on A2 with a calibrated printer to assure it actually is 1:1.
                          I'm not familiar with Kinkos
