you along with some others here have inspired me to relocate my rig into a TH10... the madness ensues, i was wondering what bracket(s) you are using dual pump top.

also... some shameless self promotion... http://www.overclock.net/t/1329709/aquaero-help

It may or may not make much difference, but is worth a try in case you get an extra .2+ gpm from it.

I'll give that a shot next time up I'm setting it up. Had to put everything away for Thanksgiving company. JennG's family was today,...got all my family coming over tomorrow. Will be back at it on Saturday!

LOVE the work put on it and the perfectionism on every detail. I wish I had that kind of patience.
Subb'd and rep'd, cpachris, this is one of the builds that will certainly win the MOTM once done.
Keep up the amazing work and good luck.

Thanks for the kind words Willi! Takes awhile to get through it....that's for sure. Glad you made it.

Glad you've made the jump...you'll love the case. And shameless self promotions are welcome. Did a few myself when first starting my log. I haven't mounted the Bitspower dual pump top setup yet...but I have ordered some of the (UN)Design brackets, and will either use those, or mount it directly to a plate using the three screws that hold the little plexi piece on.

What gauge wire would you suggest for doing custom extensions for LED's?

Well, the right answer to any question regarding what size wire to use....would have to include the question, ...how many amps will the wire carry?

If you are powering up a few small LED's....you can get by with some pretty small gauge wire. But if you're powering up a string of 50+ hitlights....you'll need something thicker. In general terms...you should be safe for most lighting options with 18 awg wire.

Package from modDIY in Hong Kong arrived.







I got 8 different sizes of heatshrink (some very large...and some very small) for testing of which size fits best. Also...some more white 3-pin fan connectors. Had to order my first batch of these from Hong Kong also. I can't find them here in the states anywhere. Am I missing them at some location? Anybody know if they can be found stateside?





Are you kidding me?!! There is black printing stamped all over the heatshrink. All the way around...not just in certain locations. Really?







I really can't believe they would sell white heatshrink in a computer enthusiast shop....that has black printing stamped all over it. This is from modDIY. Hope my experience saves someone from ordering white shrink from there. Anybody know another options for some white shrink...that is larger than 3/4 inch, but smaller than 1 inch? One inch is too large.

Try paint thinner. .. should take it right off. just... be careful and clean it off afterwards or when you light that to shrink it you will have some fun:devil:

Soap and water might do it. grip the rough end of the sponge around it and have someone pull the roll through.

Yeah I would try some alcohol to clean the stamping off.

I got my 20 & 22mm shrink from modDIY the same way. I haven't tried to remove it yet, but I did go ahead and use the 20mm -and your "hot knife" method- to prep and resleeve my USB 3.0 cables.
Tomorrow I will experiment to see what removes the printing. I can't imagine there would be much to it, but you never know. I have acetone, paint thinner, "goo remover", alcohol and all kinds of stuff around here to try.
Maybe I'll at least get a buzz.

Of the white male fan connectors, they seem pretty scarce. Even the black ones aren't carried too many places I know of, and I don't think they are even stocked, or made by any of the US companies including Molex, Mouser & Newark.

Here's a place that advertises 7/8" shrink tubing:

EDIT: Alcohol seems to work ok on the heat shrink.
