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
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.
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.
I would have never though to build a computer around a radiator, it looks really interesting cant wait for an update.
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
very interesting project, but what's on last pic??? I just have a full size black image...only my side?
Fixed it, it seems it was not resized properly, thus displayed in full resolution lol
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!
It came out awesome. I'd add a clear cover over the power junction you made. I would shock myself on that regularly.
Verticality II: Integrate cable combs and a larger tube for a reservoir. You could integrate O-ring grooves or add a little silicone glue if you don't trust it. (I missed being in on the planning stage here, and I love throwing out suggestions. -apologies. )
Appreciate the input, round 2 will be quite the event
