THMaximus is coming along!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well, this won't be a full build log but I will do one once the build is complete, which unfortunately might be a month or so. Have to have back surgery next week so I am attempting to get as much done as I can but I think I am going to spend a while sleeving this weekend. That should get my mind off other things lol!

Here are some pics:


My Cpu is ready!


Here are most of my parts, get some more in this week.



Can't wait to get everything running! I want to get my sleeving drilling, and loop ran this weekend. All the back bending stuff I can get done lol.

Love the case! The casters have been a lifesaver!

What's everyone's opinion on fan cabling? The case is big, I am wondering how much cabling I am going to need. I bought several fan Y cables and hoping that will add some "length" to the cables. Just seems like everything will need longer cables but maybe I am wrong.

I'd custom my own splitter to reduce the amount of cabling. Are you planning to run em all off a fanbus or something like that? Custom sleeving and cable ties will be a great friend. Just watch the load you put on the fanbus if you run a few of em in parallel over one channel.

Looking good.

Do you think you could put up a parts list? I like what I see, just want a little bit more info.

Oh, and I hope the surgery goes well. My dad had neck surgery last year so I saw how stuff like that can take you out for a while. Good luck.

While I only have an M8, I can say that in my case, the only fan that I've had cable issues with is the rear exhaust on the MB tray. One 12" extension wasn't enough to make it to my FC5 in the drive bays. So for that one, look into a longer than 12" extension unless you're gonna plug it into one of your Y's.

It actually did make it to the FC5, but there was no room for routing or hiding the cable. I would check the dimensions of the M8 vs. the TH10 and adjust your extensions accordingly by those differences if you don't get a more solid answer.

-edit-

Just looked up my fan's cable length and it's 29cm. So 29cm + 12 inches didn't quite cut it in an M8. Off the top of my head I think 1 foot is 30.something cm so ~2ft was too short for the M8.

I have a parts list that I am keeping and when I post my full build log I will put it up. It has changed quite a bit since I first started.

In short, Koolance 452X2, Bitspower Fittings, Primochill tubing, koolance quick disconnects, XSPC 480, and Gentle Typhoon 1850's. The fittings are changing here and there since this is my first build and not sure what all I will need / want. I have ordered several throw away fittings just to try things. Reading only gets you so far.

Right now I am going to run them through the Sunbeam multi fan port. I don't really "need" a fan controller for the gentle typhoons. I am hoping to get all 11 fans on the sunbeam. Just hopeing it can handle it. If not I will either order another one or just get a Lamptron fan controler.

0.083 Amps, technically just short of 1 watt.

Think the sunbeam will handle em all no-problemo

10 of em draw less current than one of my Delta screamers.

Yeah, fans are a real problem inside CaseLabs cases. Not that it's CL's fault, all these MFG's just make their fans with 7 inch cables. Like THAT is enough for most modern cases? LIVE IN THE NOW, Fan companies.
post #10 of 12
Heh fans are even more of a problem in MM chassis where there are no beams to tie em down along. Not a difficult problem to solve tho. Extension wire and electrician's tape is cheap. While you're at it hide the joins using cable sleeving and heatshrink.
