[Build Log] Wall mounted PC - BUMBLEBEE

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
36-CORE 3D RENDERING WORKSTATION
SPECS BELOW

Hey everyone,

This is my first wall-mounted PC and I, like most who have built one, was inspired by MAXXPlanck's build.

This is my third custom PC and will be used mainly as a render node for Vray, and a backup PC if my main rig dies. I've spent about a month planning everything out, researching parts, and visiting every single hardware store I pass by.

I've laid out most of the parts in the picture below and I will actively document the building process as I go along. Relevant parts list soon to come.

I work a lot and don't get too much free time, but I will inch this project along :-)



COMPLETED!



BUMBLEBEE - OPTIMUS - MEGATRON





UPDATE: COMPLETED






















MEGATRON - DUAL XEON E5 2680 v3







OPTIMUS

Here's what I got done in the last few days:

Getting and idea of where the main components will go:






Drilling holes into the acrylic pieces to mount components:












Removing GTX 1080 stock cooler and replacing it with Phanteks Glacier G1080 Waterblock:












Plastidipping the MNPC Tech grill:










Installing wooden support frame. Going to put eight 1/4 inch bolts through the HDF and wood as well:









Will keep posting as I go along :-)

Dang, a water cooled computer almost looks more impressive when all the components are spread out next to each other!

Finalized the placement for the acrylic panels/components/cable holes etc. Next step is some Dremel work.

Hey guys, I'm a little stumped here and would greatly appreciate some help with this.

The reservoir is above the pump. The liquid will come from above and go to the right to the GPU. I'm looking to be able to drain to the left. Is there a problem with the placement of these two valves? For draining, I was thinking first opening the left, then closing the right. But then I was thinking about possible problems with the water cut off on the right not being able to flow to the exit. Any thoughts?

Thanks!
