This build is spectacular! I love how everything is just so compact, yet still clean. Good luck in MotM!

Thank you very much, Maki! I'm glad you appreciate it, it means a lot. :-)

I already got my votes down for the MOTM, that Macchiato is quite the looker! I hope you guys voted on your favs already, too. :-)

This is legit. Really great work. I am highly impressed and thats not easy. I am actually looking into a scratch build that is sorta along the same lines with being black and white, SFF, and water cooled build. Keep up the great work!

Really nice build, love mITX and watercooling combo in such a small case.
Congrats on MOTM nominee - you got my vote.

Let's pull it up... I'm not good in terms of frequent updates but 3 months?

Time really flies by! I've been working on it frequently, but I guess I'm pretty much the worlds worst updater. :-D


Part IX

So, it was time to take a turn with the design in this one. It was far to bottom heavy, lacking something to bind it together.

The whole visible area of this build will feature acrylic tubing.








Enjoy!

I'm sorry about the lack of updates first of all, but I wanted to get this thing finished and have it up and running before focusing at all on the logs.

This is now done, and these are the 'lost updates' of the project. Yeah, that sounds plausible, haha.

Part X












Here you can see the problem, it hits quite badly.


Away with you!


It will get soldered back in this position using wires.


Got a bit of work done. This is the preliminary routing of the bottom part. I don't really like the double 90 situation, maybe there is something to be done about that.

Part XI
























What is left of the 5,25" bay.



The rubber lining is just there to protect the glass during transport.




A little bit further, configuring the light installation.





What a mess! Diving into it again.



Hopefully I can put the GPU and motherboard into this and fill it up. Hopefully.

Part XII


A little, ventilated, cover since there is no way to fit the USB-ports back in.








Protective padding for the GPU, against the front radiator which I was having problems with before.




Finally got the other radiator in!







Got the top fitted and the last of the wires somewhat routed, it'll look cleaner once they are hooked up I think.






I wish the hidden cable routing would have been cleaner, but there is literally no room for any mounts or shorter cables, it was a pain already.

So this is how the SSD's look when mounted. Two 120GB drives in raid-something-something. Stripped of their cases and insulated with biiig heat shrink around it all for durability.




GPU in place after 3 hours or something like that. It was until I realized that the back of the casing was fitted with screws earlier and it simple opened up like a book. Just slide it in - Well, not just.




Some fiddling with the wires for the GPU, don't know how much of it will be visible.

Part XIII


Sometimes things doesn't align the way you wanted them to. This was one of those times, somewhere along the line I was a bit clumsy and measured some things a bit weird.

I got the situation handled though, but it was an unnecessary change to the design. Maybe it adds character, I don't know.


I now have a spacer, a 90 degree rotary and a 45 degree rotary on the radiator in the back, and changed the 90 degree rotary in the front to a regular 90 degree fitting.













I think that I sorted out the last of the alignment issues, well, still some tweaking around the radiator area but other than that.

I don't know why, but I kind of like the quirkiness of these adjustments with the alignment, not sure if character is the right word but I think it being 'perfect' would take away from its charm.. Maybe?
Anyways, I bent the tube a few degrees on the right hand side of the CPU and she's straight like an arrow on the whole.



The task this evening will be to get some order out of the ATX 24.

Part XIV


Now, sensitive people look away, haha! I started work on version 1.1. Or 2.0. Or which ever version that doesn't leak.



So many hours later, I got this to show you. It's wiped down and might be a little bit wet in the pictures.

What's left now is filling it, some cable management, touch up on the paint in places that got scuffed. And the side panel, but I've been working on that off camera!







In short; fixed some issues with the Aquaero, rewired start and reset buttons, extended a fan cable, changed around some fittings for increased safety and insulated the hidden connections. I also exchanged a few tubes with new ones and re-seated a couple of worn out o-rings. It should work fine now.
