    this is a real great idea to design this cables plate, with pure copper wires... this case will be an absolute perfection

    Looking awesome.

    And fan grills that double up as egg slicers - genius! :happy:

    Seriously, loving how it's shaping up.

    I begin to lay the cables.
    To say immediately that it is a precise, meticulous work and need patience, but I believe it will be worth it.
    Here are the first wires.

    Just a thought... is there likely to be any warming - of those tracks - when the system's switched on/under load...?

    I did not do tests but I believe that it is not so different from a cable inside the classic PVC insulation.

    Just me being over cautious, mebbe... my line in the sand is drawn @ buying bits & throwing them together, so I'm not even in the this league, right here.

    The case and radiator shrouds are awesome, extremely well-executed. But, that wiring is so far beyond anything I've ever imagined, dang yo that's sick.

    Oh dear. :worried: Every once in a while someone does something so new and crazy that everyone starts doing it. If a current client sees this I'm doomed.
    Absolutely fantastic idea and execution, once again. :clap:

    Thanks :thumb:


    If a current client sees this wait for me to finish my mod at least :grin::grin:
    I hope it isn't copied before finishing my work :winking::winking:

    I'm speechless...the result is pure awesomeness, yes, you can be proud...:jawdrop: this is a real unique and stunning concept :wallbash:
    with such high level modding to show us, you did not tell us the specs, and it is almost secondary with such a build, but I'm sure hardware choice is also important, I can see you have a Heatkiller WB full copper, but what is under ? and what is exactly that ITX board? If I may ask...

    Is the graphic power routing taking other components into account, 'cos it looks like the 'physical' cable run is comparatively long, next to the 24-pin ATX & EPS 'physical' cable runs?

    @kim - ROG Maximus XI Gene matx. Zoom mode Cheesecake.
    @Jeff - Horizontal gpu card mount I'm guessing.

    That looks exquisite. :D Although from the inside it says, 'boowneggoo.' :lol:

    Sorry if I answer now but I was busy :grin::grin:

    Thanks kim for the nice compliments...for the hardware it was my choice not to write brands or models but anyway with some attention we recognize it :winking:

    Then the video card will not insert it into the motherboard slot but I have to move it to avoid interference with the tank, so I will use a 16x riser and place it vertically with the outputs facing upwards.

    Thank you Cheapskate for your explanation, all correct for the MB :happy:
    The GPU will be mounted vertically.
