    So I thought I would start off by showing you what I'm moving away from by this desk.



    As you can see its a mess, and its cramped.
    You can see my one PC in the background (White case)

    So now work is starting, getting all tools and bits ready



    Measuring for the cutouts for Middle Rad.



    All measured, now making first incision.





    Cutting out the hole.





    Test fitting of the rad, just pushed in. Its nice and snug.





    Underneath.



    Didn't come out too bad I think.





    Cutting away the back strip, to fit the other Rad.







    All gone.



    Making a slit in the back to slot the Rad support.



    Test fitting.





    Whats hidden under there?



    Yup my trusty switch.







    What are these supports being made for?





    UPS down the back.

    Back to the back Rad, test fitting.



    Slit is just right.



    Little feet.





    Testing.



    Counter sinking holes.







    Looks good.





    Testing with the full setup.









    Getting ready for the Front bay things.





    Holes all cut.





    Testing fittings... Really snug.





    With all 3.





    Temp layout of components.



    Does the PSU look ok at the back there?







    Thats all for now.
    Its coming along.

    Next I can start making the power cables, and getting fittings with the real components.

    So did a quick test cable.
    This is just so that I can see how long I need and a rough cable layout.

    Any other ideas?


    Also I will be cutting a hole down the bottom so that the cables come in from the bottom corner.
    I just ran it over as thats kinda how it will run.

    Also I will be using cable mounting, so they run nice and neat down the side, and under the mobo tray.





    So here you can see it will run around the back.

    Does that work? Any other ideas?

    The hole will be here:


    As then I can hide any extra in the cables around the back.

    Few new things turned up.

    This is because of changing my rack into the Lounge, I have to re-do all my networking.

    So something small and Cisco'y turned up:


    A little 8 port PoE switch, I got this one so it could power my Cisco AP in the spare room still, without needing an injector:


    But upon opening the box, I was greeted with a really bad rattle sound.
    Like something metal was loose inside the switch.

    Looking in, you could see the heatsink has become loose and is smashing around in there.
    So I have RMA'd the unit, and will hopefully get a new one early next week. Sigh.

    Also some more Watercooling parts turned up
    Hopefully tonight I can start working more on the power cables as that will get me going nicely.

    WC Parts:


    Will keep you posted with any more updates
    Hope you enjoy it.

    So today I started off by double checking the PSU before doing any work to it.



    Not too shabby.


    First cable done.


    Test fitting.


    Found it a bit tight.

    Lots of the Seasonic PSU cables require having 2 cables in 1 slot.
    Had to try figure this out.



    Think it came out ok.


    Looking good I think.






    So after playing a bit I found that the 2 cables in 1 would not be able to fit in.
    So re-did the cables using the heatshrinkless method.
    Looks really clean.



    Took some shots of it.












    Some more test fittings.



    You can see the middle white cable is so much thicker, this is the one with 2 cables in 1.






    Also thought I would take the time to show you where im coming from:






    I really need to get a macro lense.
    I will borrow my bro in-laws macro lense and then take some better pics.

    But think they are looking nice now.

    Small update.

    Some more fittings arrived.
    Its a mixture of Bitspower and Koolance (for the copper pipe).
    Still waiting on a few 60 degree Bitspower fittings.

    Getting incredibly difficult to source in the UK these days.

    So mixture of fittings:




    Playing around with fitting the 2x EK res.
    Its using Bitspower SLI fittings at the bottom, so you will see the liquid going between the Res


    I will do the same to the top:


    Thats all for now.
    Hopefully soon I will start doing some proper work on it again.
