This weekend was not productive...since i found out AQ D5 Pump Adaptor delayed again..since August 14th...this is third time shipping date has changed.
But some minor progress...
- Found out 16 AWG will not go through SATA power connectors. Would have to push hard and didn't want to do that. Ordered 18 AWG.
Waste of all that 16 AWG:
- Ordered another 3TB to fill that slot...no point cabling and sleeving only to redo it later on. The SSD's are 2x ; planning to be mirrored.
- The Sata power connectors will go 6x daisy chain as pass throughs. to ONE 6 pin peripheral power connector on EVGA PSU
Think this is the layout for SATA power...had to get orange as well.
Not easy sleeving SATA data cable first time. Need practice. This was second try.
The SSD will the Color-X (maroon) ...Rest White
Was at home depot, looking for scroll saw...and then found this attachment to Dremmel..
Redid the White Acrylic smoothing of edges. Had to do it...son was making fun of it..
This paint on AQ5 takes a lot of beating on SHTH10 case. I am getting so tired of it...Thinking of just getting it powder coated. AQ5 installing in 5.25 bays is a pain, especially if you don't have one side not accessible as in STH10. Was thinkng of going to uppper compartment for few hours but decided that it would not be a good idea. As the Hard Disk Cage and Blu Ray Drive in middle compartment would look excessive.
This will take a few days to figure out how to splice all the 120 mm case fans. Cut this one so far for the Hard Disk cage:
Next thing is I have to get the front Case layout of 5.25 devices/fans laid out to do further sleeving/cablingEdited by Seanimus - 12/2/12 at 6:38pm
