  • CPU: 8600k                                                       
  • MOBO: ROG STRIX Z370-I                                 
  • GPU: EVGA FTW GTX 1080                              
  • PSU: EVGA R3 1000W                                     
  • Storage: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB m.2            
  • Water, and couple fittings with monoblocks, done

You should follow this, it's going to be pretty cool.

 

If you dont believe me take a look at this image, it's clear indicator how good my plan is!xD

Goal is to get this have a floating effect = stuff behind the component-plate wont be visible. Super clean watercooled wall-mounted pc. Base of this PC is 60x40x(cm) acrylic piece.

Started testing cutouts for cablework and precision needed for this is quite high! O.o (example: 24 holes, 3.5mm each inside of a 52mm X 12mm rectangle)

I was wondering could I make Corsair SP120 fan's little bit better for this project, and ended up breaking one of them for research purpose of course.. This prototype frame print is just to check that my measures are correct. Also made a guide-piece? to drill thru all 24 holes needed for 24-pin cable. Pretty good test piece

Any problems with the fan mod (noise, etc.)?

It's not done yet but should gain better air pressure. Fan-frame diameter is 2-2.5mm smaller = less air gap between blades and outer frame should = Less air running away = better performance .. We'll find out! 9_9

 

edit. Would be cool to get air pressure/flow device to measure properly custom frame vs. original! Link me one if you know a good one.

A simple way to measure pressure would be a DIY u-pipe/communicating vessels. 

Airflow is more complex to measure. If you just want relative readings it might be simpler. Maybe a venturi pipe gets close enough.

Okay, okay this is maybe doable idea after all! First fan hole is done, couple mistakes made but did not fail too bad. (This hole is going to be hidden, so good first ''test'' hole for mistakes)

I'm a huge fan of that motherboard, I've been trying to model a build around it haha. Its looking great so far. and I'm glad your going for a symmetric build, I think wall mounted builds usually look way better when they are like that.

Tough job to make those 114mm holes, but with water not that bad! First holes for PETG tubing done. Fan holes in the middle will be hidden, so that crack won't be a problem visually.

The plan I had was to make special tubing but ended up going to make something more simple. Holes for tubing done. +10 PETG tubes to be made + same amount soft tubing behind the plexi. Holes for cables and PSU to be done aswell. Some progress :)

Progress.

  • Holes for cables - Check
  • Add a fill port - Check
  • Make the cutout for PSU - Check
    • Don't fail - Check!

Leak test has been going on now for 15hours. Couple fittings were leaking, but they were just not properly mounted. Now all has been good no water no drops! GF wants white cables (as that Wonder woman logo on GPU is going to be white+bad RGB), what do you think?

yeah you can get a 12v controller and power it off a molex on your power supply so that it turns on and off with your computer. That's what i've done with mine.

It's just sad as monoblock RGB cable is 100% right length to reach motherboard RGB connector but can't take advantage of that :(

Is a right angle power cable on the way? Other than that, the PC is:

 

😮

👌

👍

I had angled power cable already, but ended up rotating PSU 180*Deg to get fan noise little bit to bounce away. Yeah getting new angled cable for sure, that cable looks awful going up ^_^

 

Thanks tho :)^_^

I would say its ready, except for the power button... Adapter for lights and better PWM splitter in use. It's cool but I'm a bit disappointed. Should've colored the plexi to hide all cables on the back.
