Watercooled MM Extended Ascension Cable management project + QDC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Since I'm changing my parts so often, I wanted to go with Koolance Quick disconnects all over, so I decided to also do a little ''MM cable management project'' at the same time.

MM cases are notoriously difficult to work with for proper cable management. Really a pain to do. So I decided to make my own ''DIY alu panel''.

Here's the mess at first in the gigantic Mountain Mods Extended Ascension.



A friend gave me some raw aluminium to work with:



Planning for some E-ATX motherboard down the road.

Raw alu with holes and 1/4 black molding.



After painting. Still not dry. The picture is not very good. The finish is pretty good and uniform. But my camera decided to add some random noise in there.



Went overboard with Koolance QDC. A mixture of VL4N and VL3N. Just look how big those VL4N are compared to a GT 120mm!!!



DIY alu panel now in place, QDC, first pump and res also in there. Sleeving done. Pic before tubing.





Tubing done.



The new front. Replaced my 4X 4 fans controllers with 2X Scythe 12 fans conmtroller, and put a MNPCtech Nautilus and 3X120 alu grill there... but those are back-ordered everywhere, so I only have one for now... 2 will come later down the road...

I know it look strange with the 6 Biohazard fan grills... but I couldn't find 2 other MNPCtech 3X120 anywhere.



Behind the mobo and the new DIY alu panel. 2 other pumps and res. So 3 loops 3 pumps and 3 res total.

There is 3 Triple 120 rads on the front panel and we can see a Quad 120 rad on the top panel.



Everytnig now working, with the red Nautilus on the front panel.
