[Gallery / Build Log] Ultimate Wall Mount Rig - MAXXPlanck V2 (Completed) - Page 30

post #291 of 462
I am actually tinkering with a similar design so finding this was great ..... actually planning a cabinet type design with glass front, twin 560 rads along the top and rigid acrylic tubing

had a question about the PCIE riser cabling ....if it flexible or stiff ? .... available with 90 ends ? Reason i ask isi wonder if could be safely hid under Asus Thermal Armor

I also kinda surprised that the industry hasn't come up wit acrylic "frames" ..... think a picture frame in standard component sizes (SSD, HD, etc) that had a Z- flange that ya could screw down to ya board, mount lighting underneath and thereby "frame" ya components thereby hiding all the wiring connections.

The riser is thin and flexible. Can easily make even 180 bends. I'm not sure how much clearance you have under the Thermal Armor, you will need at least 3mm for the cable to run underneath.

The surface with the carbon fiber is 1 1/2" from the wall. Looking from the side, the board is 1" thick with a 1/2" gap between it and the wall for the mounting mechanism and some room for the wires in the back.

really nice work!

but i have a question

Some people are inspired by great works of art like paintings and sculptures but this thing has been on my mind for weeks since I first saw it. I can truly appreciate the hard work that's gone into this thing.

I am going to attempt this in 2014. I'm undecided on getting new components or just going with my current build. I have a few questions:

The HDD/SSD mounts, how difficult were they? Were the holes for screwing down those components already there? Same question for the GPU's, I know you said you used the existing screw holes that held the cooler and the bracket, but in between the two cards did you use standoffs or something? And that SLI watercooling bridge, is it an in/out setup from the same side? I always thought you had to go in one side and out the other end.

Lastly, besides the PCIe risers, what was the toughest part of the build?

I'm doing a similar build and plan on making a thread for it as well, i'm almost done, but i've hit a brick wall. It sounds absolutely stupid but i've shorted TWO boards.. I bought a pair of powered 19cm riser cables(powered=they come with molex connectors), daisy chained them together and it would appear they are the source of my problem, I can't think that it would be anything else. Do you think that the length is just too long for the risers, being that they're un-shielded? Or possibly that it's fact that they're powered?

I'm about to bite the bullet and buy the 3M ones you used, but I really wanna make sure that's the issue. What do you think?
Note: i've checked all the mounts and everything is properly grounded with spacers. PSU is fine, no exposed LED wiring that could cause interference.

Also, are you experiencing any latency, instability, power issues with the 3M risers?

Please respond, I'm holding off on the order of the 3M riser until i hear for you.

I swear if I burn another board i'm throwing this build in the trash and just gonna buy a conventional case. I've been working on this for weeks and the man hours i've put into it only to get stuck one step before finishing is driving me insane.

here's what I have so far:
a pale shadow compared to your build....

edit: i've since fixed the water loop and it doesn't look quite that messy anymore. It goes reservoir-->pump-->radiator---> water blocks. Hope that makes sense

I was more wondering how much the rig is building out smile.gif Like from the wall to the highest point. Maybe the top of the pump or reservoirs? (Dont need how much it builds at the the PSU smile.gif
