    update time!

    Psu relocation + searching for watercooling opertunities

    Voiding the warranty like a boss!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lets find a place for that naked psu!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well thats a nice spot isnit?

    [​IMG]

    Some motherboard standoffs to mount the psu-pcb to the case
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    i did a good job, with to standoffs :D
    [​IMG]

    deleted some more Aluminium from the case.
    [​IMG]

    gonna mount the fan on an angle, so it gets fresh air (update for that incomming) and blowns the air to the headspreaders, and pcb.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Thinking about this layout, but i need a mcp355 pumptop to confirm this loop, so thats on hold untill i got the top.
    [​IMG]

    Greets!

    Update :D!

    Created an "intake" so i had no airflow isseus with the psu
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i sawed of the mounting side of the psu INCLUDING the inline filter, so its all 1 part and not 1 thing here and 1 thing there (oh wait, xD! )
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Today also came 2 packages in the mail, 15meter of red paracord sleeving and 50x152cm matte black vinyl (still wanted to try that and i kinda like it)

    Cleaned the front, no more fans there, because the hole innerside will be random build :p
    [​IMG]
    * matte black blends in perfectly with brushed alu!

    My psu was already sleeved with MDPC sleeving, but i wanted to go heathshrink less, so i took paracord :).
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    when sleeving all wires 1 at a time i created this wire pass thru.
    [​IMG]
    *also ripped a piece of metal away so i can let the wires guide at the back of the motherboard panel:)

    also my top a step further, more about that tomorrow.
    [​IMG]

    see u with the next update ;)

    PLEEEEASE isolate all that PSU stuff so you don't end up with a 110/220V Lian Li electrode.

    How are you doing the power connectors? Very interested!

    THAT IS an impressive job! It's perfect!
    By the way, I haven't seen anything like that before, but if I'm right, you plug the PSU on the bottom of the case and it runs on the 5.25" bays place isn't it?
