Moving all components over the available space to mockup where I want everything to go
Going from mockup on cardboard to 3d rendered model to find dimensions for all mounts and holes
I exported the face of the model and cnc'ed it and adjusted and tweaked some things
Wrapping the MDF in carbon wrap and put in motherboard standoffs
Initial install of motherboard hardware
Mounted the components more permanently to the plate
First watercooling runs and installs
Water runs all done
First tests and leak prevention
Special wiring cover is being 3D-printed out of CarbonFiber to match the theme of the build.
First bootup with old monitor after putting it up on the wall
I have decided on the color scheme
Setup complete with the new monitor set up
And she sure looks fine in the dark with all it's RGB Glory
Carbon wallmounted build
Soooo, the time has come to show of my work of art on here! It has taken me months to get here but I'm really pleased with the end result. I'm not even too mad the pump died on me while doing the fill up causing me to miss the start of the builds.gg event start. It's my work of art that I'd like to share with you all!
The build basically comes down to the wall mounted goodness you see on the pictures. I went shopping and collected this beast piece by piece starting from black Friday and stretching all the way till January. It consists out of the Intel i7 9700k paired with the AORUS Z390 Master, 32GB of AORUS DDR4 3200MHz RAM and 1TB of Samsung's 970 Pro nvme storage. For Graphics I've chosen to go with the AORUS RTX 2080 Extreme Waterforce WB. It's all powered by ThermalTake's iRGB Thoughpower 850W Power supply and the whole rig is liquid cooled using EK waterblocks, Alphacool pump, reservoir and radiator, and ThermalTake fittings, fans and tubing. Throw in 2 extra HDD's with both 2TB of storage and you've got yourself the fasted and most badass machine in the Street (that's as far as I dare to speak for with the competition here).
After a period of fiddling with all the components, designing everything in CAD and having the mounting plate CNC'd, I can finally say with proud that this heck of a project has finally come to an end. Just in time to be entered here before the competition closes and hopefully to inspire lots of other enthusiasts.
