I have the mATX Prodigy where the PSU mounts up front ... a complete nightmare. This ITX version is the better way to go. Though I have a mATX X79 board, I only have one thing plugged in ... a 780Ti. So in hindsight ... ITX for sure.
I think you did great with the external / internal PDU for normal vs. bleed with just cable splicing.
She must be a really good friend. Because I can tell you with certainty that if my HTPC left the house for more than 10 minutes for anything, I would be kicked out by my family in short order. All things movie, tv, and live tv flow through that thing and it serves up to all of the other tv's in the house. Just the thought of something going wrong has me shaking with fear.
I hope she has the windowed side panels for that Prodigy. That thing needs to be shown off.
The switch with external connection is something all water cooled cases should have installed.
preferably with an auto switching system so system can't be turned on without the pump running - like I did in Salive8 with the relay.
Had pretty good luck with the PrimoChill 1/2" acrylic.
Have to have a tight insert for bending, at least tha'ts my story and I'm sticking to it.
She lives alone and has up until now been OK without it in the living room.
Was hoping to have it back yesterday - but looks like tomorrow after I re-install windows and some basic software for her.
GPU side has the optional window panel.
other side panel is a job for today - cut-out panel and fit a new acrylic window panel.
