Hehe, thanks for the very kind words.

As long as you don't need any expansion cards, this rad placement is really quite practical,
especially if you still need a lot of HDD's.

And if you put the radiator more towards the side panel and the case was just a tad wider,
you could even get a full fledged GPU in there (double height card) if you used a flexible riser
connection and angled the cards towards the bottom at 90 degrees. As things are now, I
could most likely fit a single slot card in there with that idea (so, a sound card, for example).

The PSU Mount

The PSU Mount

Ok, time for a small update, namely the PSU mount.

External Shot - No Front Panel

As you can see, there's still some refinement required, but this gives you a pretty good idea
about how everything fits together. Since the front panel will hide this anyway, it does not
need to be absolutely perfect.




External Shot - Front Panel Mounted

The 90 degree plug fits just behind the front door, so it does close.




Internal Shot

Do not worry about the cables at this point. I started to sleeve them to get some practice,
and I was not yet aware at that point that I would be completely changing the PSU location.
Naturally, all the cables are way too long now, so I will have to shorten them to get
everything to look neat and tidy. They will still be sleeved with blue paracord though. As
soon as I get my sleeving supplies from Lutro0 I will start with that (same goes for
HELIOS).



That's it for now, thanks for stopping by.

Crimping Equipment Is Here

UPDATE

My silicone wires arrived yesterday and today I got my crimper from Lutro0. So I will be starting to adjust the PSU cables over the weekend.

Until then,

Very creative thinking on the psu mount! Never would have expected that, only weird part is that it will naturally intake air from it's exhaust

Thanks!

But why would it intake air from its exhaust? The fan inside the PSU is still turning in the
same direction, I haven't changed anything about that. Or are you talking about the case as
a whole?

Well where it exhausts heat from the back of the psu is where the front of the case is, henceforth the intake from the front will go into the exhaust

Not a big deal but it will collect dust if it is unfiltered.

Ah, now I think I understand what you mean. Actually, the airflow will go from back to
front (intake through radiator at the back) through the case. The air going into the case will
be filtered before it goes into the sideboard. The case will be placed inside that, and I will probably
mount a filtered large fan in the sideboard's back which will supply air to the compartment in
which the PC is. That will allow me to close the sideboard while still allowing the PC to draw
fresh air from the outside.

If that sounds a bit convoluted, it will become clearer once I show the final setup.
