I'm about to start a STH10 build with 2x SR-1 560's and would appreciate any input on how those 140mm Yates sound throughout there rpm range, thanks. I've heard some people complain about these fans after a years time, is there any truth to this?

I think both the 120mm and 140mm medium speed Yates sound just fine. I have stopped looking for the AP15's in stock. I will complete this build with the Yates and see how the temps are. I think the noise is acceptable and is lower than the noise from my current rig.

 

Cheers,

No doubt, GT's are almost nonexistent, once there in stock they go quickly!

shipping will be expensive, but if you're buying enough it won't matter so much.

They still have 500+ in stock, but I'm going to finish this build with the Yate Loon medium speed fans. They seem fine to me and they get good reviews. This case is meant to evolve and be re-built. I may re-visit the idea of the AP15's in the future.  Thanks...
 

Well, I've been busy designing the plumbing system and drawing stuff.  This first screen shot is of the whole system. I wanted to have quick dis-connects from the MB tray and the case. So, you see one QDC going into the bottom chamber and one going into the top. I also found Sketchup models on the net for the PSU, MB, GPU, Rads, Fans, CPU Waterblock, and some fittings. I did "leverage" the MB tray and back I/O plate from the TH10 Sketchup model from Kinz0. I drew the rest.

The next screenshot shows the inside of the bottom chamber. There are two GTX 560 (140.4) rads in there, plus 16 140mm Yate Loon medium speed fans working in push/pull. The bottmon rad ports are connected with a T-block so I could connect a drain port at the lowest part of the waterloop. I will have to remove the bottom cover plate to get to this drain port once this rig is in service. I will probably use the Danger Den SLI connectors instead of the standard fittings and tubes I drew. Oh, and I'm going for the Black and Red color scheme in case you couldn't guess..  I intend the sleeve most, if  not all, the wires in red with a few black.

 

 

STH10 Basic frame Mockup WaterLoop 002.jpg

 

The next screenshot is just a closeup of the MB chamber. I intend to use the XSPC Raystorm CPU waterblock, but I found a similar EK waterblock on the net. So, I didn't have to draw one. And, I will close the loops between the GPUs in real life. I was getting tired of drawing.

STH10 Basic frame Mockup WaterLoop 003.jpg

 

This next screenshot shows how much room there is between the rads. With shallow rad  mounts, you have about 220mm between the mounts. If you then add GTX (56mm thick) rads, and 25mm thick fans, you have about 58mm between the inner fans in the middle. Remember that the outter fans go on the outside of the rad  mounts. This uses some of the space between the rad mount and the outter grill. This was a great idea by CaseLabs. With this configuration, you have about 111mm between the opposing G 1/4 ports. My calculations indicate that I need to use 20mm extenders between the rad and the 90 deg fittings in order to clear the fans. I think I will order some 25mm extenders just in case. But, then I think the two opposing 90 deg fittings might touch in the middle if I did that. We'll see.

 

These dimensions are the same in the top chamber when using shallow rad  mounts, GTX series rads, and 25mm thick fans.

Now that the plumbing system is designed, I can order the parts. While I wait for those to arrive I will actually build something!

 

I will build the custom wiring for the fan circuits. Each set of fans will be sleeved as a single bundle (in red) to a single channel on one of fan controllers. I hope to have all 32 fans wired before the plumbing stuff arrives. We'll see how that goes.

 

Cheers,

Here is a small update with photos.

 

While waiting on the water cooling fittings, I started on the wiring for the fans. I completed the four sets of 3 fans each for the two radiators in the top chamber.

 

This is my first sleeving. Since the case is all black, I want to use red accents by making most of the cabling red. So, the fan seleving is red with black accents (via the heatsrink at the junctions and end-points).

These fans are connected to the fan controller mounted  just under the top chamber.

Here is how it looks from the front:

I hope to complete the fan sleeving for the two 560 rads in the bottom chamber tomorrow.

 

Cheers,

Pongo things are looking good, I like the red accents as having everything black kind of hides the PC components against the already black case. I just finished assembling my STH10 and I must say it went very well, I enjoy assembling things as they start to take shape, there's a certain level of joy that comes from assembling things that are of high quality! I have confirmed that the lower chamber on both sides will fit the SR-1 560 radiators either with 35mm thick fans each and/or my GT15's mounted to my 140mm adapters with 96mm to spare for the 90* elbows, man this is truly amazing!

Thanks. This is my first attempt at sleeving.

Thanks. Looking forward to your build log.

 

 

 

Well, I finished the custom wiring and sleeving for the fans on the rads in the top and bottom chambers. 28 fans in total!

 

Here's a photo of the STH10 looking very empty!

20120311_0001.jpg

 

All the plumbing parts are due in by Wednesday. Once I get it plumbed, I will order the Rampage IV Extreme, 3930k, Dominator GT 2133 (16GB), and the Intel 520 series 120GB SSD. I intend to try Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

 

Thats all for now. Thanks for following my build.

 

Cheers,
