nothing terribly exciting over the past few days, it took a while for marine filler to dry, and since then Ive just sanded it a little and decided to pop everything in for a test run. Still a decent amount of work to be done but I'd put it around 40%

Here's a few shots of how its looking at the moment, its actually got some pretty decent cable management potential, I should be able to get everything tucked away in the end

480 money shot, and some of the filler that needs more work in the background

bottom intakes, filters coming soon!

Most likely going to patch that hole, might pop an 80mm fan in there but really dont see the need, I might cover it with some type of hdd bay as well, ideas?

If you havent noticed by now this thing is wall mounted nowhere near a workstation.
cables run from here

to ?

heres some idle temps as well

nothing crazy yet, both CPU and GPU need to be reTIMd, PSU needs to be turned around, cpu fan is only running at 0-10%, the four case fans are 800rpm S Flex that do a wonderful job making no sound, but dont make a ton of noise. I anticipate after making those corrections, and making the case air tight to create my wind tunnel, I will see some much better temps.

Load temps seem to run around 25C for the CPU and 50C for the GPU

Sweet wall mounts for everything, wow. I wish they built homes today with things like that in mind. Very cool.

Did you run all the wire yourself, solder the jacks, etc? How's the performance of things like audio (assuming it's a fairly decent run of wiring)?

the run is is only ~25ft, and I did it myself but everything seems to perform fine. I think I might have a tad of audio loss, though Im suspecting the wall plate connectors, and not the cabling itself. Im considering picking up a TOSLINK headset instead, but who knows. I ran a normal (albeit thicker) HDMI cable haven't noticed any issues, if it were a longer run I probably would have used hdmi over ethernet. The hardest part was running the USB. I have (4) usb 3.0 ports on the wallplate at my workstation, they are currently powered off a usb 2.0 hub thats positioned about 1/3 of the run. I will replace it with a usb 3.0 hub soon to take advantage of the speeds, although I wish I could just do a straight run

So does it run from downstairs up or vice versa, or is it in your garage or something? It gets way below freezing here and I was thinking this would be a sweet way to run a rig - with a PC in really cold ambients in the garage.

Its in the garage. Garage ambient runs from about 40f-50f or 5-10c. My processor idles at close to ambient temp, and can even drop below it if I crank the fan. It will be interesting to see if I can hover below ambient temps after completing
