Took Measurements for USB hub ...i guess top right for usb 1 hub. the second hub will go the left. This is the original cable from NZXT just using to get lengths.

Have to do usb wiring and aquabus in pairs and do sleeving and turns together....otherwise its going to get messy with 2 sets of sleeved cables going in at different angles and turns to same spot.

In shot below the usb connection is to the right & behind of the aquabus of the pump and adaptor..

which also means the pump the way I had it on this turned, is the correct way.
and the Y will have to start behind the motherboard wall, branching into 3, and then pairing with the respective USB wire coming in.

These vandal switches from PPCS are nice. You can't read this normally, but under macro lens its clear
C= from device you want to control
NO= power the device when button is depressed
NC= power the device when button is out
- = black wire from psu for led
+ = Red wire from psu power for led 12V

Did a boo-boo, used paint stripper on plastic and messed up my blu-ray drive:
8159896660_cdf37dc9f3_z.jpg
Have to order new one, and kind of fix this plastic for use on another computer (for my son..haha)
Why are there so little choices of blu ray writers on newegg....seems LG is the only one that looks decent. Any recommendations other than that for 3D playback/writer?

Since the change of colors (above is not the only loss)...thought I would replace white sleeving (110meters of mdpc) with Dark Grey ...which I ordered!! And then I have 200 feet of white 18AWG wire which if I contnue down this track I have to replace with black 18AWG. Another hit.

Bah full of losses these 2 days and another storm headed to east coast....When will this stop!!

Anyways here is a shot of AQ5 power connector options. Space is limited. Can't go low profile as wires will hit heat sink/bracket. Middle one only choice. Left one (two sided) is out of the question also, as it will hit the bracket.
8159854177_f6465e748b_z.jpg

Just going naked wire without sleeving between AQ5's. Same shot on right have some other parts I received ..(normally don't post my mail...but it was on my table).
8159887162_d789964177_z.jpg

Also ordered Brown, Red and Black AWG wire just incase.
Need Brown for 12V , Red for 5V and just using white wire for now for ground between AQ5's . NOt sure if I will use the MNPCTech for Vandal Switches...Will see at end depending on how many light boxes i use.

Huh? How so? What has the number of light boxes got to do with which sleeving you're going to use?

Got this huge package and thought I misordered again ...
8162867407_2632a159be_z.jpg

Evonik (same acrylic as in muderbox specs) sells in the US and got in 2 days..With some awesome packaging:
8162866197_3d29d29194_z.jpg

I definitely did not need such large pieces but the price difference between 12x24 and 24x24 was like $8 per sheet and just ordered extra:
8162865045_c45bb0728e_z.jpg

Have to find a place to laser etch the 0.25" transparent acrylic. And another place to cut this smoothly with polish. Sick of cutting acrylic...smelt of burnt acrylic for a whole day at work.

Getting cold again...Have to clean the fireplace, and started a fire going.
Have to bring my computer from garage inside the house.....Can't work in garage anymore, unless I put a heater in there...
Storm supposed to hit tomorrow
8162863887_a35a3e9908_z.jpg

Have to fix the wires on this to make a nice curved bend...It was nice at start, but then realized the long power line has to be from top side, and had to flip everything around (and without desoldering/crimping).
8162893158_bfc664f40c_z.jpg

Center wires to Vandal switches.. I know i need the brown and its white wire for powering the lightbox.
The red wire and its white wire ...i just extended it here......Maybe for future use, or i may just nip it at the molex.

Yeah I got power on Wednesday. Probably going to go out tomorrow..depending on the wind speed when it hits my area....More trees start falling then more power lines go down.
