First of all, love your build biggrin.gif
Second, i am also pretty sure that the punchdowns will work fine, the reason that the ones for cars etc. arent that great, is because they will most likely become a bit damp sometimes. And the bumping around as The_chemist21 said.wink.gif

Happiness is - sitting out back on the deck in the beautiful 80 degree weather here in the Pacific Northwest with a ice tub full of extremely cold Heinekens and reading this incredible log. cheers.gif

I just got got an idea for making you SSD build as clean as possible. I depends on wether the component actually exists but hear this out: instead of split wiring the SSD from the power supply and Areca, you could have a PCB that has a single power and SAS input splitting to four SATA power and data connections.


The orange SSD connections would have to be specifically spaced to match your setup and the red and yellow ports (SAS and Sata power respectively in no particular order) could be oriented sideways to clean up cables.

Does Areca support the multi-lane cables like LSI?

So kinda of like what is on the back of multi-lane enclouse Raid boxes? Neat idea....but I would have no idea where to inquire about having one made. You?

PSU Update. I teased an unfinished picture of my powder coated PSU a couple of days ago, but now I'm done with them. And I'm going to do it. That's right. I'm going to do it. I'm going to lay claim to the title of "World's Most Beautiful PSU". I'll relinquish the title only upon picture proof. tongue.gif

You remember what I started with, right? This:





Customizations include:

1) Powder coat the sides and bottom crimson to match the outside of the case.
2) Powder coat the top matte white to match the inside of the case.
3) Replace SanAce fan with a Noiseblocker M12-S2 with painted frame/blades and MDPC-X sleeve
4) Custom vinyl stickers to replace stock stickers
5) Copper plating of screws and fan grill. It's a real copper finish...not paint. Sealed...so it won't start tarnishing immediately.

After all of that...here is the PSU that allows me to claim the title "Worlds Most Beautiful PSU"








The only thing better looking than one....is two:





Some more shots at different angle These are big pictures so click one for more detail:














Closeup to see the copper plated screws. I think they look phenomenal.





And as good as the PSU's look outside the case....the look even better inside:










And they show-off just perfect through the window of the case.





I'll have another update tonight. Now that I have the PSU's done...I think I should be able to try and get a POST tomorrow. Still air cooled stuff right now...but I need to see if anything arrived DOA before my RMA periods run out.

Rutger's colors would be better!

EDIT: I just noticed your pump location, I assume those pumps will be feeding the Rads above it?
