Preparing system for 16-HDD storage capacity, for now with a rebuilt Lian-li cage, but when I get one more SFF8087 angled cable I'll adapt the bottom cage to fit 4 drives maintaining a slim-line fan biggrin.gif
While I work, idle temps last night with fan control disabled

Recabling goes on. Now the two front doors can be used for storage... wink.gif Note: the bottom cage has been modified to reduce its depth about 1" maintaining a fan (Scythe 1/2" thick) and the ability to connect angled SATA cables biggrin.gif


Cleaner and better cables placement inside, and that PCBs up there?


To free up SATA ports on the ICH10 chipset (I want to connect Esata and dock to it, to enable drive test progs that work only on native controllers), I decided to connect the two slim-line Blu-ray recorders and the DVD-RAM recorder via internal USB2.0. Why such big cards? Because I had a couple of SATA-to-Esata/FW800/USB bridge boards and one USB-to-ATA133 laying around from old external drive builds, I figured I could recycle them, FW800 doesn't work on ODDs and I have a free USB header on the mobo...


New USB3.0 and aux power placement, no more modular cables hanging up front thumb.gif now I have to make the aux power bus I designed: four T-crimp molex connectors near the PCI openings to which little "modular cables" can be connected to feed cards, no more spider-like cabling to hide tongue.gif


News behind the scenes, thinner and better organized top port cables, SATA cabling routed all behind, USB headers for bridge boards.


Now I have to place remaining SATA/USB and check fit, then air clean a little the inside, then rebuild it all biggrin.gif since now the Marvell 6145 controller isn't needed anymore, I was thinking about getting a Sonnet TempoSSD card to turn the VM SSD in a X2 card. That would free up another ICH port for the DVD-RAM drive via a simple SATA-ATA bridge, problem is I don't know how big the TempoSSD BIOS is, it might fill up option ROM space. rolleyes.gif

Some little updates.
Dual channel USB2.0 bridge board for the two slim-line ODDs, since they ain't that fast I figured I could spare one port connecting them together on a single OXUF936DSB controller.


Power cabling routed and ready for 2 EX-H34B HDD cages.


Modular power distribution panel for expansion cards. Just attach the breakout cable your card requires (molex to SATA/FDD/molex/etc). New dual eSATApd/12V external bracket, to use the internal USB header of the F5U602 card but with unlimited 5/12V supply current and ready for eSATA connectivity.


New USB rear ports, made with a spare USB3.0 bracket cable. Tidier, better, ready for USB3.0 wink.gif


Bonus: modified Lian-li EX-H34B cage, depth reduced 1", 1/2" fan, designed to be placed on the bottom 3 bays. Now Requires slim angled SATA connectors: a couple of special SFF8087 breakout cables should arrive on Monday. Will be challenging to route and tie the SATA cables to ensure they don't collide on the fan... rolleyes.gif

Just finishing minor cabling, made a little support bracket for the shortened 3.5" cage, tidying up everything. Seems finally my brother decided to install the Promise EX8650 on our home server, so for now I'm running on temporary RAID controller crossfire (EX8650+EX16650) supporting 24 HDDs max, 20x3.5" available, once the EX8650 gets out will revert to 16x3.5" but with a free X16 slot I'm already planning on a new 4 or 8 port companion controller card... biggrin.gif
Have some pics too, post later.

PS: had to take out the S7025 manual, since I don't remember pin-out of a SSI front panel connector. tongue.gif

Bottom 4x3.5" compartment completed.


Small connecting cable between the Esata12V bracket and the internal USB2 card header


Couple of SAS controllers... biggrin.gif


USB connection for bridge boards, angled B connectors


DVD-RAM drive connection, using a short sleeved ribbon cable taken from a IBM ThinkCentre deskop. tongue.gif


Unfortunately 5x SAS multilane cables cannot be sleeved or easily guided, but they don't make the inside appear messy biggrin.gif

Just finished reattaching the D14 heatsinks on my Xeons. Now to finish up cable management gotta find two 200mm (7 3/4") SATA cables, to connect the two slim ODDs to the bridge board, now I used two used 300mm cables but they're too long.

Just ready to be powered up biggrin.gif the new revamped, recabled, expanded Elysium Beast thumb.gif for anyone wondering if they'll ever be able to fill up an HPTX Elysium... biggrin.gif

Noctuas back in place


Fancy some storage? biggrin.gif


One thing I forgot to detail: the difference in depth between a standard EX-H34 (top) and my shortened up version (bottom), essential to fit it there.


Becomes a little scary with that Quadro in place over some hefty storage department... biggrin.gif


Panel closed, ready to rock (hopefully) band.gif


System weight: approx. 45kgs

EDIT: first power-up: success thumb.gif this Tyan motherboard really is a tank, I've had it for 3 years and done everything on it, modding, breaking and repairing Sata connectors, testing many heatsinks... and it still works. Hefty price tag ($500) but well worth it.

EDIT 2: I had to take out the EX8650 controller card, since it seems to heat up quite more than the EX16650 and my friend's EX4650, and not having a fan nearby, heat from the Intel processor causes the alarm to sound for high battery temperature rolleyes.gif will seek another card for 20 HDD biggrin.gif

For now I plan to stick to 16x3.5" capacity, don't wanna mess up with another controller card and its BIOS, maybe later (I have the cage ready to use you never know biggrin.gif), have to get some USB3.0 card, IOI/Delock 89325 is some serious card (X4 connection and PLX bridge with 4x Renesas single-port controllers), but I can't find it anywhere like its X1 sibling (89317). rolleyes.gif can only find a Highpoint 1144A (same X4 PLX bridge but 4x Asmedia chips)

Until I find a 20x solution, standard fan intake up front. biggrin.gif


Thought I couldn't but I was finally able to route the SS cables inside and to the internal ports.


Everything tailored to fit. redface.gif


The free molex connector reminds that this thing's crafted and ready to support more. biggrin.gif


That's it for now. See ya on RAM upgrade (49152 MB) biggrin.gif
