Project: Hosaka PC Build

This page will update as progress continues!

I’ve been doing a lot more rendering and gaming lately so I figured it was time for a fresh new PC build. It’s going to be insane! Check out these specs:

Case: Thermaltake Tower 900
PSU: EVGA Supernova 1200w Platinum
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus X399 Gaming 7
CPU: AMD Threadripper 1950x
GPU: 2 x Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2080 Waterforces in SLI
RAM: 32gb of Gigabyte Aorus DDR4 3200mhz

The CPU and the graphics cards will be liquid cooled and will have their own dedicated liquid cooling loops. The Tower 900 has ample space in the rear compartment for radiators and fans, and I have 2 560mm radiators with fans in push pull configuration on both. 2 Darkside D5 Vario pumps will drive the fluid from the 590mm tall reservoirs through the waterblocks and radiators keeping everything insanely cool. The case has 23 fans in total.


Cooling the CPU will be EK’s Gigabyte X399 Monoblock.

The bench test. It was successful. Still waiting on that second RTX 2080.


Project: Inspire 1

This one has been a long time coming! I’ve always wanted an aerial video and photography drone but the cost is a little too steep for my needs at the moment. A good guy by the name of CdRsKuLL over at DIY RC has done all the modeling to build yourself a very good copy of DJI’s Inspire 1 drone, but for a huge discount. You can pretty much buy a new 3D printer, all the hardware, all the electronics, the filament, and still pay less. Inspire 1 sells for ~$2000, mind you.

So yesterday I begun the rigorous process of printing out all the frame structure needed for the build. I’m using Protopasta Carbon Fiber PLA and it is remarkable how strong and smooth these prints are coming out!


I expect all the prints to be completed by the end of tomorrow, so long as I stay diligent in starting prints after one ends. You can expect a full time-lapse of every part being printed and a full build log here.

Stay tuned! It’s about to get really interesting!
