    @KING OF THE DIRTY DANS Adding a 16 Pin version for as mentioned earlier for GPUs.  I will be working on my main rig tonight with these and will post more as they finish up.  I am hoping that these will allow me to run the two 8 PIN CPU cables together.

    @averagebilly Thank you!
     
    @KING OF THE DIRTY DANS Sure do so I am attaching them to this post.  I can also quickly make a 16 Pin one for dual 8 Pin Graphics Cards if you need it.
     
    Print Settings on a PowerSpec i3 Plus (Wanhao i3 Plus):
    Layer Height: 0.1 MM
    Shell Thickness: 0.8 MM
    Bottom/Top Thickness: 0.6 MM
    Fill Density: 100%
    Print Speed: 50 mm/s\
    Printing Temp: 215
    Bed Temperature: 65
     
    Using Amazon Basics Black PLA
     
    These are thin, I wanted something closed but that did not stick out much from the cables themselves.  All of the ones used in the pictures took a total of 1 hour and 11 minutes to print.

    Needed to free up my Tower 900 Case for a Threadripper build for a workstation.  Everything is "Mostly" in the case.
     
    System Specs:
     
    Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/ac
    9900K - 5.2Ghz @ 1.305 vCore
    32 GB Corsair Dominator RGB @3200Mhz
    EVGA RTX 2080Ti XC Ultra
    2 x 240mm Corsair Thick Radiators
    Corsair Pump Reservoir Combo
    Silverstone 800W SFX-L PSU
     
    The cable management stinks but I still can't believe it is all there and the clocks and temps are on near where I was getting to in the Tower 900 Case.

    So the upgraded board got me another few points in Cinebench!  And honestly the Z390 Godlike just looks awesome.  Now to reinstall windows and everything so I am not using the ROG version of CPU-Z.

    A little more playing around and some cooling improvements have netted a little more. 

     
    Better cooling was simply it only being 18C in the house and adding some better exhaust fans to the back of the case.  Wonder if I pipe in air from outside where it is going to be -44C with windchill tomorrow and then really ramp it up!

    @fasauceome Before reinstalling windows that was my first attempt at a fix.  I downloaded them then fully uninstalled the devices from device manager and ran the install program on the drivers.  It found them and installed but I was still getting the caution symbol in device manager.

    Okay so maybe it isn’t ancient but it is definitely older than some and it held its own in Fortnite and CSGO at 1080P.
     

     
    It is a screaming (literally) system.  Fans like being up in the 1400-1500 range to keep the temps in check.

    I loved pushing this system as it brought back memories.
     
    Now working on a 3D Printed Vertical GPU Mount for this thing, all just for fun.
     
    Does anyone have a recommendation for something else I can do to this to make it look better?

    I have been playing with a few different apps to make this work and have been really pleased so far with spacedesk.  It seems to have a much lower overhead than Slashtop and some others and performance is comparable.  I think that this is a great way to monitor the PC while doing anything.
    Tablet is in the upper right corner and is surprisingly sharp given the 1200x800 resolution.  There is a draw back and that is there is a battery life associated with the tablet.

    The "W"-machine (W as in whatever)
    Hm, the case is a decade-old Cooler Master HAF 932 which I had just sitting around and with too much time on my hands I decided to give it a revamp. The loop is my very first custom build water loop. So far it's running stable afaics with following temps:
    CPU: 35 idle, 36-41 under average load, 46-48 under stress testing
    GPU: 35 idle, 44 after 30 mins of Heaven running, of which 1 benchmark on high quality and 1 on ultra high quality
    Water temps: idle: 26.6 with room temp of 24 and 31.3 after said 30 mins of Heaven benchmark testing
    RAM - haven't checked yet, but I assume they're ok
     
    Loop: RAM-CPU-GPU
    Rads: 1x120 and 1x360 (all that case allows for) both XSPC ultra thin white TX120 and TX360
    Pump: EK-XTOP Revo D5 pwm
    CPU block: EK monoblock MSI X470 pro Carbon
    Piping: petg (2nd choice, but since it's my first and acrylic is not the easiest girlfriend, I decided on petg for now)
    Reservoir: home made, app. 1.8 liters capacity
    Fittings: Barrow, about 3 dozen of them if not more
     
    System specs:
    MoBo: MSI X470 Gaming pro Carbon (used for over a decade Gigabyte, but switched to MSI last year - would never ever buy an Asus)
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X @ 4.15 gHz (last time I bought an Intel was in 1998 - would never buy an Intel again - let's say I don't like monopolists)
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4x8) @3000 mHz
    GPU: MSI Geforce GTX 1070 Seahawk EK X 8GB (not overclocked yet)
    Storage: 3 nvme's (Samsung, Patriot and WD 205 GB, 480 GB and 512 GB); 2 SSD's (OCZ and HyperX both 250 GB); 2 HD's (Toshiba and Seagate Barracuda @ 3TB and @ 2TB);
    SoundCard (yes - I have one; onboard audio is just not good enough for me) : Sound BlasterX AE-5 
    PSU: Corsair RM 850i
    Propellors: 4 ThermalTake Riing + 120, 1 Cooler Master 230 mm (from the original case) and 1 aerocool 200 mm blue propellor, of which I removed the led).
     
    Also, I have customized cables, but you won't see them as it's paneled off - don't like too much visible cables in the case, hence I made the panels around the MoBo. Sarcastically enough, the only main cable you see is the one of the GPU power, which I forgot to order in that configuration - ordering it next week and will replace it with the light blue version once in.
    Color scheme is Wriyon-blue (a hint lighter than baby blue: https://www.color-hex.com/color/bee1ff )/White with some accents of very dark Green, sky blue and electric blue. The leds are in the same RGB scheme as the Wriyon blue, they seem white, but there's a hint of blue in there. Hope you like it.
    Made the front io panel myself - will do that again, but all the buttons, the usb3 plugs, the audio jacks the water temp reader and the general temps screen I built in myself.
     
    NB: Wriyon is a little local project that I have running here to help stir the love for reading and writing in school kids. It may not be as flashy and super duper as the other builds, but I made it all by hand without any tools except a drill, a heat gun and a sanding machine (heck, I don't even have a shed or workbench) and I am proud of it

    I am finally happy with my build.  Took hours of planning and getting lots of advice from folks in the forums!  So thank you to all who have helped me.




     
    I also want to give a thumbs up to the Fosa hardline fittings that I used.  They seem to be pretty quality coming relatively inexpensively.  We will see how they hold up in the long run.
