I dont know if you finished this yet. And I dont know if you have the custom fabrication capabilities. But it would be really cool to see a twin screw roots blower water block on that cpu. I can almost see the animation in this video of a roots blower being adapted and turned into a pretty cool feature on your racing simulator.

i worked over 10 years in the poly industry and have to say they did a really bad job on that. they used a lot of regrind material, bad pitting. Love your idea though.

It would be so cool to have all the wires come out of spark plug ports and such to make it look like an engine wiring harness

Make the rad lines look like an fuel and oil lines on the block. That would look amazing

Not a fan of us car crap esp ancient pushrod crap BUT that aside this could make a killer custom PC design if done right as for cost wtf not only is that absurdly pricy I can get a real block for less but they didnt even finish it properly for that $$???

Jay, if you use the exhaust ports for airflow you could put headers on it and they would actually exhaust hot air 🤯 Edit: Well, should have watched the whole video 😂

Roll cage body with dash and large curved monitor (just for show, obvs gonna be VR). Engine either mounted behind the front seats like a Porsche or something OR use an old chassis or get one made to house the engine up front. All the ports for the PC should be wired up to come out the dash, you shouldn't need to see any wiring from the PC at all.

Make the fans push air from within the block and have them pulse with the colour of a combustion flame in the original firing order of the engine. CM also had a fan which looked like a turbo. You can use a couple of them

Wonder if Jay can find someone to make a Acrylic Carb Res for the water cooling? Would be cool to mount above where he is wanting the components mounted in the valley. Like a big 4brl holly.

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?
mirror71 4 dager 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...

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.

I think you should flip the radiators around and run the tubing to where the water pump would go and you can put your reservoir and your pump there and run green coolant.

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?

There should be a version of this edited just enough to give the impression you're working with a real engine block. See if you can fool anyone with handling it like it's almost weightless.

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.

If you don't take advantage of the oil filter spot for a tank reservoir to use with the water cooling I'll be really disappointed lol. Put an oil pan on it and make a stand around that to hold the motor up.
