time to get some work done.
After removing the engine, i had space to start working on the motherboard plate.


So i measured, cut to size, drilled little holes for the standoffs, and then drilled holes in the quad chassis, to secure the tray.

Got bored waiting for the paint to dry haha



Once the paint was dry, i screwed it all down, and it's not perfect, but not supposed to be, it's completely hidden


Now that it's fitted, i added the MB, and secured that down.
Perfect fit, Literally no spare space lol



Will update more as i go.
Thanks for looking

While waiting for the Thermaltake goodies, i got to work on some of the details.
Like this!

I used to have a motorbike, always kept my helmets, this was an old one, So.. I cleaned it down.



I then sprayed the whole helmet black, and temporarily fitted 2 6w speakers inside the helmet (Will later affix these properly)
Video here:


I personally think the helmet adds so much to the build, Just need to decided exactly where i want to put it, front of the seat or back.

Is the helmet bluetooth? I think it would work much better if it is. Surely you can buy a reasonably cheap bluetooth speaker and cannibalise it?

Haha, it's not.
I do have a couple of beat pills upstairs, but the problem would be connecting it every time the system starts up, and then you gotta power on the speakers every time.

At least with these, i can just wire them to the main power cable, and both pc and speakers power up at the same time

Back to work on the helmet/Sound
Sprayed the visor black
And started to cable manage the 3.5mm jack cable and power cable.



vinyl wrapped the side vents, and cut the project name and my name, stuck on the visor.


Overall, it adds some really nice aesthetics to the project.



What do you think ?

Watercooling is almost all here, just waiting for the CPU block now.

Here's some snaps!


Fittings









GPU blocks







Fans!





PSU








PUMP





Reservoirs







Bending kit (Please note, this ain't no cheap crap barrow kit, this is brushed aluminium with some serious weight)






So far i've only played around with some stuff and can say this... Holy ! lol
The pump looks like it was purposely designed for this quad.
It fits the build so well.

Then the twin reservoirs.... Damnn... this wasn't a planned build, meaning i didn't spenmd hours going over design ideas thinking carefully where to put stuff.. everything has gone on instinct and so far it's gone well.

Some closing images



thank you Thermaltake for this awesome gear, crazy nice too.

UPDATE!
CPU block has arrived!
The Thermaltake Pacific W4 PLUS

Mighty fine looking too!





Now we just wait for the radiator, and the quad project will be complete!
Sorry about the delay in updating, it's been a hellish few weeks, multiple projects in the works.

Thanks for looking
