    So I just got confirmation from AMD that I'll be getting an A10-7890K for the final piece of hardware :)

    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

    Fixed it, it seems it was not resized properly, thus displayed in full resolution lol

    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. :D )
