[Build Log] CaseLabs STH10 - Aquacomputer EVGA - "Seanimus448" - Page 17

post #161 of 1388
This build is epic, I read all 16 pages..
I love the aquaero stuff and planned on getting it for mine when I do it. But.. The more I look the more complicated it all seems to be :s
As for the rest, very nice (And expensive D:)
Like the sleeving, thought about doing it myself, But it seems like it takes a long time and you have to be real careful to not mess up what wires go where. rolleyes.gif
Im gonna keep my eye on this thread. I like where this is going.


Lastly, (Im jelly, of your BMW.. >.>)

Thanks for the guide.

sleeving two cables separately into one...thats the plan.

By the way, I now have to add 1 of the 3 USB hubs to the "pile" of parts bought - but not going to be used. Since we found out that we can use double the AQ components on each of those USB headers.
This "pile" is getting bigger now... lol. At the end of the build going to take a picture of that..

Ha! I'll do the same. I could almost do another mini-build with my leftovers and extras.

So Bad news is that the AQ D5 Pump Adaptor is delayed again...the good news is that it will be ready for shipping soon as the parts to assemble are done...

Meanwhile those wanting to reuse EVGA PCI Express power connectors...this is what it looks like...6pin+2 pin join together. Smart idea from EVGA of pairing them only one way.:


And a single 8 pin connection out of PSU goes to the 2 power connectors of your GPU Card (if thats the your configuration) with Y Connector:


From PSU side:


Posting connector layouts i have so far:


Since I am building my own cable..(one so far with power as gold plated connectors) i am assuming I can use VGA0 and VGA1 from PSU to go the power connectors of the 690 ..as two separate cables without Y connectors? or do the grounds need to Y'ed??

Oh yea. I read it at work, and then came home and forgot about PM.
This build will not finish in September. My Pump Adaptor is now shipping October 5th ..sigh.
Sending you PM now.

Done crimping/cutting all power cables to motherboard, CPU and GPU. Smallest length is like 38 inches lol.Longest is 44 inches, I think...Its a lot of cabling and crimps.
200 feet of cabling for just mobo/gpu/cpu and 110 crimps?

40 inch average, 8pinx4 and 24pinx1 ,
40*8*4=1280 inches=106 feet
40*24= 960 inches=80 feet.
Yep..and its only half done..

One of the GPU cables is longer than the other by like 2 inches to account for the wider bend going in top of card to second slot.
With the 24pin connector, also crimped the optional white wire...to have consistent sleeving .


Fingers are !@#$#$%%


Just did 2xCPU power cables, as opposed to leaving open an empty slot.


From PSU Side:

4 SATA Power Outs
2 CPU Power Outs
7 VGA Outs

EVGA 690:


SATA power cable from EVGA



1) Assuming for EVGA 690 with 2 GPU's I can use 2 separate Cables as VGA0 and VGA1 from PSU to 690?? or does it have to be 1 cable from PSU split into 2x 8 pin?
2) Default power connector from EVGA for SATA psu out has 3 SATA connectors...Can I put a load of 6 SATA Connectors on a single cable?

Have to do the SATA power cable next, thoughts on question above appreciated..

1) you'll need two separate cables from the PSU. you can't split one eight pin into two.
2) different drives have different power requirements...but you should be fine. I have 8 SSD's on one cable. use 18 awg...and there shouldn't be a problem.
