A good way! Like I'm biased into liking that you're doing it because I did it and you posted a picture of my computer haha

LOL for sure man, I really like your build, I think there's some really cool stuff going on in it, and I like it ALOT!

In other news, this is the last component I plan on ordering in A WHILE. I added up the total cost of the system and it makes my stomach sink.



Its an EKWB DCP 2.2 pump. its meant for running very small systems (like mine, wow, perfect!), so even if I wanted to add in another GPU, or MAYBE even 2, this little pump can handle it.



I think I can do some cool stuff with it, including maybe polishing the front? I dunno yet, we'll have to see.

I continued work on the midplate again. The metal sheet seems a bit thin, so I might wind up cutting 2 and bolting them together.

So here are some (admittedly bad) pictures of my midplate prototype.




Oh yeah, I sleeved some sata cables.


Very dim, but the 24 pin and EPS cable.










These illustrate the way I want the cables routed.
It is very rough, and I will continue to work on it tonight.



The dashed is where I may want to extend the metal, as it may be a bit saggy over in that corner. I am also very skeptical of how I want to attach this to the system- Screws seem the way to go, as an adhesive is too ghetto and wont detach, but drilling will require me to take apart the WHOLE SYSTEM... and I really don't wanna do that.

Any ideas?

Oh, and the pump shipped.

Do you have the ability to tap your own screw holes? Uses things like this and this.

If you build it so that it goes underneath that bat that goes across the case on the PSU side you can tap screw holes in the case and whatever material you used for the plate. Let me see if I can find a good picture of what I mean.

In this picture you can see the two small tapped screw holes at the bottom of the midplate.


And Here you can see along the rail of that bar that spans the length of the case I also tapped some holes in there. Screws right two it. I made it pretty snug on the other side so it pushes against that middle piece wall so it holes it in.

Not w turkey sure what you mean.... So basically I'm using a hand powered drill to drill the holes?

Still experimenting with the config. Just found out my high school has a 3d printer and a Laser engraver, I'm brainstorming what to make.

Just the standard things but then cooler because you 3d printed it
