Ya OK buddy? It is important hear and pass on safety warning, but I hope the possibility of a hands-on lesson has not been too severe on you.

Year Zero,

I am completely fine, no hands-on lessons have been generated here. It was just my inner "lawyer" screaming at me, put in a disclaimer for those who don't know any better then to come out of the rain to stop getting wet.

Only lessons I have had have been in the quality of the built along the line of "and that is why they make ..." or you should have "made it this way in this step, see how ugly it is..."

Well folks been out of town for a while, but while I was in Atlanta I stopped by McMaster-Carr and picked up some stainless steel screws.

The places is friggen huge, I took a few pictures of the places.





I thought with a places that sells a bunch of fasteners that it wouldn't be like that, it would be big, but not a square block.

I will be working on the system more and start posting more.

I have been busy with work but not to busy to do some work on the build, took some pictures, I just did not have enough time to post so here is a weeks worth of work while I am waiting on the Dremel to cool down.

The first thing I did was a little bit of change up, moved the power button from the front left to the front right of the case, and then had to remove the front fan to do some cable management.


(Changing sides for the power button)


(After removing fan to feed through the cables)

After this quick change I installed the waterblocks for the CPU, Mofset and NB/SB. I bought the kit with the big center block because it was cheaper than buying all three pieces.


(Just the Individual Blocks)


(With the Center Block)

I think I am just going to go with the piping to each of the blocks with connectors and bending the pipes. I think up to Monday this is the work I did.

Tuesday I drilled the holes for the mid-plate. Ugggggh, drilled the first 4, flawlessly, then on the 5th hole, I drilled the hole too fast. Slow and steady gets the job done, you will see on the 2nd photo of the mid-plate what happened.


(Mid-Plate with all the holes for mounting with spacers)


(Mid-Plate with oppsie)

Wednesday, I don't have pictures of my cutting the 24" square mirrored acrylic into first one remnant piece, which will be used for the doghouse for the Aquaero and other bay items


(Remnant)

When Cutting out the part made a small scratch in the mirror backing, but I was able to minimize it in planning the cut for the parts.




I attached the mirror plate to the mid-plate, what you see in the photo is just the protective plastic curling up, I can't find the picture that showed both mirror plates before I did anything, the current photo shows the holes drilled for the motherboard spacers.



Drilling out the holes for the spacers went well, except for the chip in the back.



I did some preplaning to see what I need to cut out.


(Pre-planing for an Asus x99 Deluxe Motherboard, the outer lines is where the motherboard extends)

And now here is where I am at, with some work done on the mirror plate, with ALOT of work left to go on it. However, the Dremel should be cooled down enough to work on it some more. I will try and post tonight with the rest of the work done.



I have the who weekend to work on this with no work to get in the way.

Nice log, subbed of course. If you have or can borrow a jigsaw it is much easier to cut acrylic sheets. For your acrylic tubing use a hacksaw and a miter box.

Thank you for your advice, however, no jigsaw, an no one available to barrow and the part that is necessary to us it on is almost done. I have a bending and cutting set from Monsoon that has a miter and hacksaw, but that is for later on.

The rest of tonight's work:

All work on the mirror plate for under the motherboard.


(Templet for what I wanted the mirror plate under the motherboard)

Here is the rough cut out of the mirror plate for under the motherboard.



Since I do not have any power tools except a Dremel and a Drill, and a lot of patience and time, I have to make do with what I have. What I do have is an attachment for the Dremel I am not quite sure what it is called, but here it is, it allows me with the sanding attachment to make straight lines mostly to the inside walls of the mirror plate.



Allows me to do:

Saturdays work;

Today was abbreviated by the UGa v S Carolina game. So last night I finished the interior of the motherboard mirror plate. Today was work on the cut outs for wiring and tubing pass-through.

Took some photo's of the mating of the motherboard, motherboard mirror plate and mirror plate on the underside to see if I needed to reduce the plate.







I didn't like my initial drawing out so updated the templete:




(Close up)

This lead to plotting out onto the mirror plate the templete:


(Used Sharpie Wax Pencil)

And tonight's work with the pass-through installed for fitting:

Time to make the build look more like a machine. Of course all this work was done on Sunday but no time to post ill just now.

Did some last minuet fitting to make sure the cut outs well well. before sanding the cut outs



Then added the scratch protection, which is nothing but .5" Double Sided Scotch tape, but leaving the top lair of tape on so the sticky isn't on per IT Diva.



I also thought I would see what I would look like with the grommets for the pass through still on above the mirror plate as shown below, however, with them on, although not shown, it does not provide sufficient space under the motherboard for clearance with the mirror plate.



So I installed the the Motherboard, Hydro Copper, and mocked up the reservoir before the coverings and the pump for spacing. I still have some work to do on the tray for the flow control screen and the Aquaero, need to cut down the 5 1/4" bay, finish my brackets (grinding, sanding, finish sanding, polishing and painting. Also note in the photo, the white hard tubing, it is not what I will be using for the tubing, just the stock for covering the feet of the standoffs for both the pumps and the reservoir, it was really more for helping me visualize the initial pipe run.






Now this is looking like more of a machine.

Going to be going outta town to visit with my baby sister at Disney, got a who suprise set up for her, should be fun, it is also the first weekend of the International Wine and Food Festival so much goodness of drink and fewd shall be had by us both.


Edit: Forgot to add a wider screen photo.
