So here is a small update, these will become a lot more regular as I have far more free time than I have over the past months!
 
I forgot to put this picture in the last update, but here is what the board and I/O will look like smile.gif

 
 
The backboard is screwed on, with all of my fittings just waiting there to be used!

 
When I got my screws from town. I didn't get enough.. Now I have the right amount and the Rad is securely in place

 
 
Today I decided that it was time to start the dredding task of custom lengthing EVERY cable. These were my first crimps ever! didn't do too badly biggrin.gif

 

 
After thinking about where to start, I started with the Corsiar SP120 fans. Measured to length and initial cut!

 
Cannot really show a picture of in progress crimping, But here is the first. I did them one at a time, instead of taking all the old pins out. Just so I knew exactly where the new pins would go. Have put the wires back to front once... The fan spun in the opposite direction... hehe

 
 
Lovely! All fans followed this procedure. 

 
 
The pumps were the next thing on the checklist so did them next

 
I am actually modding the pumps so that they run off of the Fan Controller so I can undervolt them because at 12v these are actually quite loud. My old MCP655 / D5 was 10x better!
I had to do a test first to make sure that the fan controller would work with it, just to be safe. Though I was 99% certain it would.

 
 
Jotted down the wiring so that I knew were to put the pins

 
 
All soldered on!

 
 
Pump works well biggrin.gif

 
Interesting, this MCP 355 uses a different PCB. no worries, nothing will end up different

 
 
Again, jotted down where the wires went

 
 
Crimped my wires and now time to test them both in the Fan Controller

 
 

 
 
Great! Though something interesting is that when both at 12V they have a substantially different RPM

 
 
Of course the wires need to be sleeved. I taped the ends flat so that I knew which pin went where since as all 2 wires have no writing or colouring I don't want to get it wrong!

 
 
First one sleeved 

 
The wiring looks to be a perfect length too

 
Second pump done

 
 
Both plugged in

 
The wiring is lovely, lines up perfectly!

 
 
Tomorrow I will do more electrical stuff and will do another update. Would take too long writing out one super super super big update I think haha
 
Take care all;
Phil
