    Welcome to my Project Log.

    The mod is based on a Lian Li PC O11 WGX, which i bought 2018.

    The idea was born, when i realised that my old Mora 2 fits in the backchamber of the PC O11.

    Then i startet modding the case to fit everything in it.
    The powersupply is now mountet in the frontchamber, the backchamber was filles with the Mora and the fans.

    Some months later, the first result was ready to use.

    While working with it, i realised some problems with it.
    The 4x180mm silverstone fans making too much noise and the cooling performance was realy bad.
    So i startet to rebuild the case, to get enought air to the Mora, I removed the plate in the middle and replaced it. The Mora 2 gets a mount for the 200mm Noctua fans. But now I can not mount a mainboard any more, so i decided to make a flying mainboardtray.

    The front and the sidepanel were replaced with the new ones

    NEAT! You went from a simple rad stuffing to laser cut parts in your first post. :D

    Thanks !
    I took at least 2 years to get it to state, were it is now.
    I had no real plan at the beginning, and had done some parts twice or more:idea:

    Some parts are laser cuts some are milled.

    all brass parts will be plated with nickel later.

    The HW inside will be:

    AMD 3960X
    MSI TRX40 Creator
    8x 8GB Corsair Torque
    Samsung PM981a 512GB for the system
    Sandisk Fusion IO SX300 6,4 TB for storage
    AMD RX5700XT 50th (waiting for the new generation)

    I see almost no one buying older Fusion-IO PCIe SSDs. Absolutely the best bang for the buck for SSDs. And they'll last forever in a desktop. Plus its kind of cool using hardware that use to cost $30K.
