    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.

    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.

    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.

    Defyant Modded "Tail" Lights!
    Love what im seeing here :thumbup::thumbup:

    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
