Cheers! In theory the wiring should all be fairly simple as I'm making them from scratch, plus there simply aren't many cables to begin with (24 pin, 2x 8 pin and a SATA power). But, you never can tell with these things.

Simply beautiful. It has a organic look to it, while still being kind of industrialized. And a awsome concept and vizualisation of it. A++++ quality build log rolleyes.gif

It is very cool.

Going to be great to see it all finished.

Ah, it looks way better from these angles, thanks for alleviating my concerns!

Is there a specific reason why you chose this way of mounting the GPU? It seems like the R9 Nano would lend itself perfectly to a custom I/O shield, that way the back would be a bit cleaner.

Right let's get this show on the road! I have until the 11th of July to get Aetos up and out, so every day counts.

It's only a little update today in terms of visuals, but it was an important step. First up, you guys were right, that GPU mounting solution was utter rubbish. I don't know what I was thinking when I came up with it, so that's out of the window now. I haven't got pictures of the new system yet as it's not quite finished, but it's much more in line with what you would expect from this build.

The big one for me was working on this annoying gap between the front and rear side panels. There's supposed to be a thin line, but because the front pieces warped after printing, the gap was much larger and wonkier than it was supposed to be. I've basically gone and filled it up and smoothed it back down again, it now looks much closer to how it does in the renders.

I've also begun work on the rear panel, which should help to keep everything nice and sleek.

Oh man, that's exciting! Only nine days to go, that's a tight timeline, but I'm sure you can do it. I'm eager to see what you've come up with for mounting the GPU, and seeing that backplate let's me hope you'll cut out every single I/O connector on MB, GPU and PSU for a perfectly clean backside. My guess is you'll paint that black?

One question:

Are you talking about the Vengeance LPX RAM or is there some LP version of the Dominator Platinum that I don't know about?

If it's not too much trouble, could you also provide me with the lotto numbers for next week? That crystal ball of yours seems to be working rather well hehe. As for the RAM, indeed I'm using Vengeance LPX now, a low profile dominator would be amazing though.

Befitting of the last update, here is another "small" one. Admittedly this took a lot longer than I was expecting as I had to remake the panel after I messed up the first one with some dodgy measuring. Needless to say this was quite a bit of needle file work.



GPU bracket included




Looks ugly at this point but is functional




Ahh see, looks better now

It really would be, I'd pay a good amount of money for that. Maybe something can be done with a set of broken Dominators and VLP DIMMs like these:
