    Daniel's murderbox - with a sLight twist

    Nils and I were asked to do something a bit different with a murderMod TJ07 and thought some might be interested.

    Dsecrieru, a member here at XS, masterfully secured 3 Matrix Orbital PLEDs which are no longer available. Dsecrieru wanted us to incorporate the 3 displays somewhere in the case, viewable from outside.

    What exactly are PLEDs you ask?

    Polymeric Light Emitting Diode (PLED) displays employ an advanced new electro-luminescence technology to produce one of the brightest displays commercially available. This new display technique virtually eliminates the concern about ghosting at high refresh rates and it allows you to be able to read the display from 160 degrees. The PLED display accomplishes all of this while lowering your power consumption as it does not require a backlight. Our PLED displays also offer extra features with standard and advanced General Purpose Outputs (GPO) as well as the ease-of-use with serial communication via RS-232, I2C and USB protocols.

    The objective is to design and produce a mounting system for the 3 PLEDs, install radiator(s), pump(s), reservoir and plumb the LC loop up through the midplate. Once complete, the case will be shipped to dsecrieru in Germany and he will finish the build by installing all his components.

    In addition to the PLED project, there will also be a little surprise (hopefully). We’ve been working on a new concept and hope to feature it in dsecrieru’s build – more on that later.


    Ok, enough gum flapping; here are some pics:





    The 3 Amigos – Made in Canada, shipped to Germany, back to Canada, and when installed in dsecrieru’s murderMod TJ07, back to Germany they go!






    The first step is to remove the drive bay mounts and cover the screens with lo-tack protective film (after all, these are irreplaceable).






    Next, we’ll have to ditch the honkin’ big external USB cables and replace them with custom made internal cables (that we’ll sleeve of course).






    Ahhh… that’s better!



    Ok, time for some destruction…




    Oops… not quite yet. I’m pleased to say that “The RotoZip of Destruction” (RZoD) will be used in this project – later.






    “Say hello to my little friend...”. Just wanted to show you the business end of this puppy. At 30,000rpm, this 6amp bad boy goes through aluminum like hot butter through a stack of pancakes! (errr... ) Anyway, it’s pretty much my most favorite thing in the whole world. Think of a Dremel - all doped up on goofballs…


    Finally, here’s the concept for the PLED mount.





    We used a shot of FC’s build and did a 3d camera match to create a visualization of what the PLED mount design will look like.






    From the exterior – same deal; 3d camera match. We may choose to extend the main window forward or go with this design. We'll see...



    The idea is to try to keep things very clean and minimal. Measurements indicate that there should be enough room on the exterior side of the front HD structure to enclose the displays. This location will allow us to conceal wiring.







    The challenge will be to design the mount so it can easily be removed for access to the HD structure behind. That would be easy if we thu-bolted from the outside… but since when is easy any fun.


    More to follow; cheers.

    I'm keeping an eye on this one, after all, I'll be leaving it to my kids one day!

    It all started with my obsession to attach some sort of activity bar to each drive. LED bargraphs were a dead end so I started looking at LCD displays which brought me to Matrix Orbital. Bought an LK series, 20x2, red on black, but soon was disappointed by the very narrow viewing angle. So I kept searching and read about this PLED technology. Unfortunately, Matrix Orbital stopped building those, but digging around a bit and with a truckload of luck I've managed to find 3 last pieces left in stock at frozenCPU.

    And then I stumbled upon MurderBox and Charles' work! After exchanging some emails and ideas, this project was born! I'm going to get MurderModded!

    Stay tuned, I know Charles's got quite a few new rabbits in his hat and I can only hope that my part in this project will be up to the same standards set by him. I'll do my best.

    Those are the now discontinued MX6 series, 20x2, using PLED technology.

    cheers,
    Daniel.

    Here's an old web page: http://www.matrixorbital.ca/products/mx_series/mx6/. Google can reveal some reviews for them, made at the time they were still available.
