Patrick Fan-SFF Water cooled Scratch Build

Recommended Posts


3D models finished some time ago, sent to laser cutter and going to work on getting the distro plate cut out. At first glance seems like wiring and tubing are going to be a  real challenge. Hopefully everything works out but these things never go as planned.

Photo of me tapping the holes. I think some of these holes definitely should have been made deeper so I could have longer threads. Also My taps weren’t bottoming taps so the holes that weren’t through holes were only partially threaded. Definitely learned some stuff for next time.

Pretty productive day today. I was super excited because this was the first time I had all my parts so I got set to installing. I think tomorrow I’m going to try and get the gpu block on and install the gpu and after that I just need to start doing wiring and tubing.

My fingers are rubbed raw, burnt, and crushed. Honestly this is the worst way to make custom cables but the most economical for me at least not counting the wasted time. I’m debating whether to do the pump and fan cables or the egg cables but I’m definitely going to do the gpu ones. I’m going to sleeve these up but looks like my paracord is on a container ship in the middle of the pacific so there’s still a long time for me to rest.
