    hey guys, sorry for the break in updates. However my finger is pretty much healed up and over the last 2 days pretty much all of the parts for the wall build have showed up in the mail. I am only waiting on the screws to mount the radiator.



    I am having a hard time deciding which res to use for this build thoughts?

    Also over the new year I managed to score a 1080P Viewsonic Projector for really cheap and with 0% financing for 18 months



    I also upgraded to a Motorized 100 inch screen which means I can run everything from my desk, double

    As soon as the screws come in I will start fitting everything and moving forward however I am in need of some 45 and 90 degree adapters for my compression fittings and I am pretty much out of budget until next month so I will have to source some through trade or whatever. Anywho thanks for reading as always, my next update will be a video of me explaining the full wall PC setup.

    Ok guys, time for a fairly large update. I was going to make a video of me explaingin how the wall pc was going to work and the purpose of it but I came home from work today feeling angry for no good reason so I decided to take it out on some modding. So here are the fruits of my labor for the afternoon.

    First off I cut the Screws i had ordered from frozen CPU to leagnth so I could mount the rad.



    Next up I needed to remove a bit of pipe from the area I would be working in as it was no longer in use.





    Then vacuum and mount the rad



    Next up is the pump



    Then the Res.



    After that i needed to get the 2x6 I would be using to mount the hinges to level and secure.



    After that it was time to make the plank I would be using to mount all of my hardware. There are 4 holes in the lian li trade that make good mounting points.






    And just my luck the Seasonic PSU fits perfectly between the nuts







    next up was mounting the hinges and testing out the concept.



    Woo Hoo, all looks well. Time to start running some tubing. Unfortunately the danger den res. I am using will not allow me to us compression fittings, so I am going to have to use barbs on the res (eww )







    CPU heatsink installed



    and the video card next.



    And here is a mockup, the tubes are too long atm but I wanted them that way till I am finished so I have some play room. Now I just need to get a bracket for the PSU and a couple other things and this thing is ready to rock! As always thanks for reading.

    Nice...nice...
    That wall-mount PC concept is really innovative...
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    Ok a slightly smaller update today. I am still waiting on some parts to arrive (A huge thanks to deadlift1 you are truly [H]ard!) He offered me some free extensions so I can use compression fittings on my reservoir. However I did swing back by Bryans shop to have a PSU Bracket mad up yesterday and I got the rest of the mounting hardware for the tray installed.

    First off is the Latch to hold it in the upright position, nothing fancy but it works like a charm.



    Then we have a tensioning cable to reduce stress on the wood the hinges are mounted to and prevent sag. I mounted a adjustable hook on one end so I can adjust sould the cable stetch out or I need to alter the position.





    Then off to the plasma cutter again.



    And viola a PSU bracket.



    Mounted.



    And we now have a place to slap in the Seasonic 750w PSU





    You can see here the PSU has plenty of room to breathe and there is only a slight gap between the wood which I will address when I do cable management.



    Hopefully another update and maybe a video by the weekend. As always thanks for reading!

    Nice work you're doing there!

    I'm just wondering if that radiator setup can do it's job... it's too close to the wall and the fans doesn't seem to have to high static pressure...

    It has a couple of inches between the sheetrock and the rad, as for the fans I am pretty confident that they will get the job done, as with all of my scratch builds though, tis' and experiment

    Absolutely and I welcome any and all thoughts on my builds . This whole thing is a bit of a experiment since no one that I can find has ever mounted a watercooled CPU upside down before so its really best guess as to how well it will cool and function. However once I have figured out the effects I will be flipping the mounting tray around so it will be in a more typical configuration.
