Plus you will develop calluses . In some cases it is just not worth doing it in my opinion.

If all modular cables had the same pinouts, I would do it. But I don't really want to have to do it just to have to redo it in a few years, especially with everything changing over to digital at some point. I should have done it years back when I originally got my AX. Oh well.

I returned my 2xpsu twice since purchase in September and finally settled with EVGA Supernova with the USB thing to get on screen. I think Corsair now has usb out too. EVGA is all 1:1 no overlapping pin outs and fancy stuff...can't get more modular than that.
but before I forget I had this question in my mind for weeks and I keep forgetting to ask.
Can one get a triple bay LCD screen for front bays...which will get attached to rear of GPU card, and you can use that as second monitor? But I want only certain software to show there (right now EVGA PSU Control Screen). That would be cool.

That's certainly very nice that it has the one to one pinout, I wish all of them would just do that. Ugh.

As for the bay screen. I'd honestly suggest just buying a phone or tablet or something off of craigslist and make a bay mount for it. You can then just get an app to turn it into a secondary display. You could do either USB or wireless (depending on the app), it's certainly not as smooth as your primary monitors but for your needs it works very well. Co-worker used his phone and tablet to put his chat windows on.

The downside with dedicated bay monitors is often the displays are absolutely terrible, over priced like no other, and hard to find in color. Alphacool used to have one, but I don't even think it was full color. lol.

It was as complicated as what i thought originally...each pair had to shorter by 0.25"...found that out shortly after cabling few more and testing it:
So ruler where i was at last night...and each pair down by 0.25":


Keep checking after every pair

Final testing:

Changed it come down left fan inlet:

Checking again general layout:

ZipTied it for training..16AWG should hold when i remove the zip ties...(at least thats the idea)


Took so long to do one cable 4 hrs....I built a whole workbench in 10 hrs with lighting and power...absolutely no comparison. and I ripped by left thumb open with crimp pin while straightening the sleeve..
Now have bandaid on left thumb. Great !

Also received the band saw blade... another place to nick your fingers frown.gif:

Yep it sucks...forget that idea.

Keep up the good work!
Thanks...Generally you get the family pack from MDPC. 200feet ? for big case. It all depends on case. You can make rough estimate using excel or something...like mobo is 24 wires * 2feet + cpu power 1 8 wires * 3 feet and so on.
And mine was overestimated as I didn't think of the short route for GPU when I ordered.

Mandrix still looking good ...not sticky?

Those Aqualis is oh my god, SEXY !!! thumb.gif

Are you using the AC D5's also, or those are just standard D5? I looked at your order page and didn't see it.

Yes. Its in the order log. first post, part #49120. under Aquacomputer section, you may have to scroll down in the table.
There are also multiple close up shots of it in previous posts.

Acrylic arrived. Black, Brown, Maroom and Mirror. The mirror is much thicker than the rest even though when you order you say 1/8".


Long day at work and just started on the build. Going back to GPU second power cable at around 8"

Also on your Aquaero 5 ive been looking into buying one and haven't seen may reviews or unboxings on it? I dont know if you have used it yet but does have a flow sensor and tempurate sensor for water, stock? Or do I need to buy more things on top of it to use those features.

Missed that question on EDIT.
Joint 1: Between 2 AQ5's and branching the 12V and ground (-v) to the Vandal Bay and power source for LightBox
Joint 2: Behind mobo, straight from PSU going to AQ5 Pumps and then branching to USB hub and secondary PWM fans
