Wonder if one of the cross flow AlphaCool rads might be better, can be like the fluid is just going in a circle, just a though. How much will the MB block airflow from the rad? Interesting none the less.

It won't be blocking much airflow, I will be testing it once done, but if it ends up too restrictive, I can always just extend the brackets by a bit and reprint :)

So I just got confirmation from AMD that I'll be getting an A10-7890K for the final piece of hardware :)

Couple things I cant figure out.

Wheres the power supply going? Where are you mounting the SSD?

Very ambitious project, cant wait to see how it goes :D

The power supply I will be using basically isn't out yet. It's basically like a PicoPSU, but made by HDPlex. It's a new revision of that one linked that isn't out yet.

The SSD will be mounted on the motherboard bracket, but on the opposite side between the radiator and bracket.

The power supply won't be mounted on the motherboard though. The motherboard will even be modded :p

Here are pictures of my custom case for the HDPlex 160W (new revision). Since it's a PicoPSU style power supply and I didn't want to mount it to the motherboard, this is my solution :)








I have completed the power supply case, the power supply bracket and the pump bracket. The main thing left to do is finalize the motherboard mount and make a few spacers for various locations to keep things even. Possibly 140mm fan grills too if I have long enough M3 screws.

So the build isn't dead and I appologize for the lack of updates, I was faced with a big problem, the motherboard I had modded to remove the 24-pin and 4-pin connectors didn't survive the surgery I put it through. I had to order a new motherboard and design a custom PCB to achieve the look I was after

Is all the tubing going to be hard tubing? This build is kind of made for it.


Very cool so far.

I can't stretch the budget that far! If you can convince modmymods to do so, maybe I will ;)

I'd just need the fittings and tubing.

So here are the final pictures :)

Not 100% happy with how things turned out to be honest, so there will definetly be a Verticality II eventually!
