Okay. I'm gonna go for it! Just ordered 6 ft of cold rolled 0.5 x 1 plus 2 ft of 0.25 x 4 copper 110 for water blocks. This is gonna be fun!

We'll have to check how much space we have for the video cards. In order to go that high-end they would need to be sponsored. We will see

I have not removed the mobo from this computer I'm using yet. So I'm working the layout with the other parts. You can see in the pics below that it will be a very tight fit, even with the board behind the radiator. You can also see that we loose the use of the last 2 PCI slots.

Another place where we have a tight squeeze is the optical drive. Not sure if we will have enough depth for cables. Once I pull the mobo of this computer I'll pull an optical drive as well.

You can see the position of the PSU. It will be standing up like that, flushed against one side. The pump(s) would be between the PSU and the divider. The wires will need to make a tight turn. Not sure if it will be modular because of that.



As mentioned earlier there is no HDD on this build, only a single SSD (or perhaps 2 at most). Since it is so slim there are a few possibilities of where to put it and it depends on where the rest will be.



The divider in these pictures is at its standard height. Once I place the mobo on the tray I think we will confirm that we need to move it 1/4 to 1/2" down. We can not really move the lower rad lower because of the location of the ventilation windows in the side panels. So the only thing we can do is leave less space between it and the divider -- less acoustical insulation.



That is it for now. OT: Otherwise I power washed my garage in preparation for giving it an epoxy coat. All the oil that impregnated the floor for years is giving me a hard time. I did two applications of degreaser already. This somewhat related to the build because I want to get the epoxy done before installing the new compressor. Compressed air is a very nice cooler when milling steel (new bars/supports for the back) with carbide tools... though not really needed. The material for the bars has been ordered and should arrive sometime next week.

It will fit... Almost!

The mobo will fit well behind the rad with some cable management. We get enough space for two dual slot GPUs, though there may be some hose management creativity involved. And... we can still gain another 1/4" to 1/2" by lowering the divider a bit.



What may not fit is the optical drive. We are missing 1/4", that is, between the drive and the radiator we overshot the length of the case by 1/4".





The options I can think of are (1) lower the drive (and the space available for the PSU and pumps) by 1/2", (2) get the actual drive we are going to use, open it and see if we can remove that overlapping section, (3) try to mod the radiator in a similar way, (4) extend the case in the back by 1/4", giving it a bit of a bump in that section, (5) ???.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. *sigh*

I was planning to have shrouds on both sides of the rad. Since it is a push/pull there is really no space left. I'm also planning to put the pumps inside a lead box to contain noise/vibration... but that last piece could be a waste if we do not find a PSU that is silent enough.

Right now there are too many moving parts still

I think the next step might be to get the pump(s), some insulation (either AcoustiPack or McMaster), and the anti-vibration gel (either Petra or McMaster). With that in hands we can ensure that the pumps will fit in the space we have for them and we can build a prototype of the pump coffin.

With the location of the pumps settled we firm the design of the shroud (for which I need that same foam to see how it compresses). Including how it will interface with the side panels, how things will get supported inside, how much insulation we will have, etc, etc. We then execute it in a way that we can add the holes for the hoses later.

Then comes the light box divider.

Once those are done we will have fixed enough variables that we will know exactly how much space we have for the new mobo tray, which means we can do the new backplate and the new struts.

The challenge is that everything is a very tight fit, so I do not want to say leave an extra 1/4" for the shroud or leave 3/4" for the divider instead of 1/2", cuz if I'm long on both estimations we lost 1/2". That 1/2" at the top of the mobo could be the difference between being able to have the 2nd GPU discharging upwards or downwards, etc, etc.

I'm pretty sure I have made this project 2-3 times more complex than it needed to be by choosing that fat 360 rad which is generating so many constraints
