Cooling - GPU

Xigmatek Battle-Axe 
Not too long ago we tested Xigmatek's CPU heatsinks, one of which featured a new HDT or Heatpipe Direct Touch base where the heatpipes are exposed and have direct contact with the CPU. The HDT-S1283 proved to be an excellent cooler and now Xigmatek has launched a new graphic card cooler that uses a similar HDT base.

USB memory in a shell casing. I first tried it with the normal connector and didn't come out so nice so I decided to change the connector. I took the connector from an old printer pcb I had lying around and soldered it in place. The tape on the top middle picture is just for some insulation.

The shell casing is from a 12.7mm (.50") caliber anti-aircraft machine gun NSV-12.7 (I got a training for it when I was in the army so that is why I have it). Great fun to try to shoot down an RC plane with it :)Robot got updated. Now it has a aluminum body instead of plywood, new motors (360 degree hacked standard servos and also the circuit boards are stripped off to allow direct control with a H-bridge), new tires and a wireless webcam (unfortunately not my own, just for testing).

The "brain" is the same old ATmega8 -board as it was in the old robot, also the bump and IR proximity sensors are the same. I attached a wireless keyboard+mouse receiver to control the robot with a keyboard (the operating range with this set is quite small, but it is still quite funny to control it with a keyboard). Don't mind about the big pile of wrapped wire coming from the receiver, because it is for testing purposes at the moment (I'm looking for another set of wireless keyboard+receiver so I can modify the receiver to have a better antenna and a shorter cable between the receiver and microcontroller).

At the moment it has two 9V batteries (one for the camera and the other is for the 5V regulator for the electronics) and four rechargeable AA cells for the motors.

EDIT: And it can wander around autonomously and avoid obstacles (well, atleast most of them)
The third generation of the robot with pneumatic flipper as weapon. Placed second @ Insomnia IX and won in Model-Expo '08!20" TFT transformed.

Aluminum for new frame and component housing, fake leather for exterior cover.

The stand is from my 24" Dell which now uses table mount stand.
