Update 2.0

This is a low tech build.

The motherboard tray, floor and GPU shelf are all plywood.

Notice the pcie ribbon cable and CPU power cut outs.

These were sized up using some old hardware as templates.

The brackets were primed. Then the whole piece painted black.

Now I'm ready for the copper, this inner I frame will be the template for the copper cuts. I'm hoping it is going to be straight. (If it ends up wonky, I'll rename this thread to "Early Access Alpha Build Proper Copper PC")

One copper side started. These will need cleaning up and polishing before I'm ready for solder.

As am I. I'm hoping it comes out looking clean and, more importantly, not leaking!

Hoping to solder next weekend.

A quick explanation

Essenially I am using a short length of 15mm copper, as a barb for the soft tubing.

It's tighter on the soft tubing then most barbs. I could add a clamp but would prefer without.

This piece desperately needs cleaning. And my photography skills need some work.
