    This looks really great. Great component selection! Is that a custom IO cover? it looks really nice. I can totally relate to the super long project period, it took me over two years to finish my scratch build! How are you planning to handle the radiator? I'm guessing a desk stand style situation?

    Just now noticing that absolutely GNARLY sag on the GPU

    Power Supply HDPLEX 250W GaN Passive AIO

    I haven't tested it, but maybe thin itx boards will take 12v as readily as the A/X300 boards do?

    What are those mod cubes you're using? Are they just 10mm ones sawed in half? This build is super siick, I love it. You've really got a talent for cramming hardware in small spaces.

    S4MAX: Brickless S4M w/ 3090 FE and R9 5950x - 800W, 5l, water cooled

    Looks sick, and I love those mods on the quadro. Also nice to see the quadro used, I've been eyeing one for my build as well. I also dog that it does RGB, since I personally have no way to control that at all right now

    Ah, yeah no issues with the barrel jack, I'm using a diy right angle style I found on ebay, plastic welded it together instead of using the o ring supplied. I just made sure to make heavy use of heatshrink to thouroghly insulate the wires/contacts from each other Honestly, luck. The heatshrink...

    Let me know if that doesn't help of if you need more info, I'll be happy to do my best to explain. again, I do believe the stock connector on the WLP350 is up to the task, I just built it poorly I think. probably the thick silicone jacket causing fitment issues resulting in hotspots on the...

    Ah! My bad, I thought I included a pic of the modified PSU in my album! I ended up removing the original header that mated with this connector (the one that melted a bit) and soldering in MR30 pigtails for ease of use on my end. I genuinely believe that if I used standard PVC jacked wire and...

    Interesting, I've just got mine running at full speed haha I haven't noticed any noise over the noise floor of my house so it's all been peachy for me. The fan is definitely over the noise floor but not in a way that matters like I said. :)

    for now since dreamhack/ my house is louder than I'd like I just run the p12 redux 1700pm at full speed, so it's a smooth whoosh at supposedly 25dba. whatever the actual noise level is it's a little higher than I'd like, but totally acceptable due to the tone. Don't notice any pump noise, though...

    Good to know for the future. I those these two panels were ~$15 shipped so it wasn't too bad, but I'll keep my eye on ponoko for the future. :)

    I'm calling it finished! Very exciting! Rebuilt the wiring on the psu, wiring in MR30 power connectors directly to the PCB, and soldered in some lights to light up the PSU, and soldered the barrel jack into the same spot as the lighting. The only tweaks left are non-critical- Adjust the...
