You could always use the M.2 slot on the back with an EXP GDC(or other) dock if you do have the need for a more powerful GPU down the line.

They're not hotpluggable like the TB3 ones, but there should also be less overhead.

Got sick for nearly a month. Am almost better now, but finances have taken a deep hit.

This project is not dead, but it is on the back burner until somehow I get finances back to the point where I can finish it.

Thank you for your interest in this project, and I hope to be back at it before long.

So I finally got moved into my new place, and dug the project back out.

The frame received some damage, so I'll be repairing that shortly, but here it is on my new table top.



Got the fan grills painted.



Ordered the new waterblock:

Decided to install windows and get it to where I can just boot and go.



Got the fan grills in place.



Another CPU block to try came in.











Sorry that the updates are slow, trying to budget myself so I don't overspend all at once.

I subbed this thread from the beginning and i love this project! Take all the time you need, good works needs time and patience.

I love these "craftworks" and i'm a little "envious" because i don't have the necessary abilities to build anything more complex than a standard pc... :-)

I stay tuned for updates!

Sorry for the long delay all! I'm back for another few updates.

I was struggling with what to do when it came to how to integrate a pump. Found the Alphacool Eisbaer LT Solo, which is a block with an integrated pump like an AIO - problem is, it's SUPER ugly.

Decided to give that a try.





It fits, JUST BARELY within spec.



Is definitely not the ideal look for having a window. Will need to look for another possible solution.



That other solution came within a couple of months! The ASRock A300 Series PC!

Ordered one the second I could, to scavenge the STX motherboard from the case.





The cats loved me ordering from Newegg.



The new system is so small, it makes me almost want to scrap the xbox idea, and try to watercool it instead.



Got the full mobo/psu out of the build.



New setup ready for transplant, after testing of course!







With a successful test boot, it was time to see how it fit into the chassis. It's far smaller than the ITX counterpart, and will need to either drill new holes in this tray, use the tray it came with, or a third alternative. I'm still debating on what to do here.





With the decreased size, that then gives me some options for the rest of the real estate within the chassis. Can I fit a pump, and thus a better aesthetically pleasing block?
