Progress as of 2016-11-29
So I just got confirmation from AMD that I'll be getting an A10-7890K for the final piece of hardware
Looking forward to this! Always liked the naked type of builds.
All of it's cables are cut at 3 inches already
I redesigned the motherboard tray yesterday as I found that I wouldn't be able to mount the motherboard to the radiator with the layout I had designed previously because of the motherboard mounting. (couldn't access the 140mm fan holes with the motherboard installed). Now I can install the motherboard somewhat easier AFTER fixing it to the radiator.
Try and figure out what all the cable combs are for 32 total wires at the end.
HD Plex 160w DC-ATX
It's the new version.
Here are pictures of my custom case for the HDPlex 160W (new revision). Since it's a PicoPSU style power supply and I didn't want to mount it to the motherboard, this is my solution
Here is an update. I have completed the power supply case, the power supply bracket and the pump bracket. The main thing left to do is finalize the motherboard mount and make a few spacers for various locations to keep things even. Possibly 140mm fan grills too if I have long enough M3 screws.
Looks cool. Keep us updated..
I'm currently sleeving the motherboard.
Love what im seeing here
As a electronics geek myself ive alway wondered why modders dont/wont hardwire to the back of PCB's, i do it all the time on headlight and tail light mods.
Mother board / case makers really need to catch onto this..... and start inverting some of the connectors.
So the build isn't dead and I appologize for the lack of updates, I was faced with a big problem, the motherboard I had modded to remove the 24-pin and 4-pin connectors didn't survive the surgery I put it through. I had to order a new motherboard and design a custom PCB to achieve the look I was after
Here is the custom PCB with everything soldered
So here are the final pictures
Not 100% happy with how things turned out to be honest, so there will definetly be a Verticality II eventually!
Love it. Who did you use to fab the pcb's?
The extent of your attention to detail
I can get your more info later this week on this I need to check info at work.
Are you going to hide those PSU cables on the second one? And maybe the wifi antennas.
Some low profile black ram would also help (imo).
At the first quick glance it looks like a lawnmower engine..............Extraordinary build showing great imagination............rough, tough, and functional, but with a very edgy look..........I love your home-made stick reservoir too. It's just screaming out for a big red heavy base for it - maybe a weightlifting dumb-bell for the complete lawnmower look..............hahaha............top mod. Classy.
