You basically have to if you want to use to it's full potential, and it looks cool.

Yeah....its easy to stay clean and simple with no wiring in the box yet. smile.gif But I do plan on making a major effort to make the wiring as clean as possible. With 50 fans this will be a challenge....but I've got it kind of mapped out in my head.

I'm actually more worried about the PowerAdjusts heating up too much. Have read in some threads about throttling of these when running several fans and undervolting them. Perhaps we could get Nate to make us a custom waterblock for the PowerAdjusts? tongue.gif

Here are a few more items from my CaseLabs box. I got the 85mm top and the 64mm top, in addition to the standard top. Since I plan on this case lasting me through 10+ years of parts upgrades...I wanted to keep it as flexible as possible.





Right now, I've got radiators and fans on the top of the case that need to fit under the top....so I need the 85mm top. When I was selecting radiators, one of the requirements was for it to be less than 60mm, so that I could set it up this way. I like the idea if keeping the radiators compartmentalized and have hopes that it contributes to better air temps inside the main compartment of the case.





I guess the 64mm top would be for people who want the radiators on top of the case but won't be using any fans in pull. The standard top isn't deep enough to have fans on the top of the case...so its only for use when everything is in the main compartment. It would be nice if there was a top option of about 30mm that allowed just fans to be on top of the case. Maybe soon Jim?

Hello B&W! tongue.gif

Nice tops! How is the paint job? Pretty much scratch resistant?

Get 50 custom sleeved PWM extensions and route them as one big bundle and then at each dispersion point have the ones that are needed branch off as another single cable. (use black zip ties to make them all look like one cable)

Let me know if I'm the only one that can understand this explanation. tongue.gif

I found you the most awesome CPU block BTW

.925 Silver block! Best temps plus no need for a silver coil! thumb.gif

Any thought on getting a silver CPU block? biggrin.giftongue.gif

Yes, its a nice thick coat of powder (actually a two coat process), and its very scratch resistant. I don't have a lot of experience with paint and powders, but my limited experience has been that powders are much more scratch resistant....and the finish is pretty flawless. No paint drips...etc.

I think we can do better than 50 wires zip tied together. Planning on single wire harnesses that have the male connections as off shoots.
