Black Label and power tools. Nice combo. thumb.gif

That 24pin in the Black Label should be your avatar.

Well the back label is after like 5 hours of work. Would not mix the black label and those power tools. Will probably lose some fingers.
Deleted the black label shot...don't want to spoil the minors.

This build is coming along very nice. I love the look of that motherboard and the GTX 690 coppers. Going to be one fast and sexy rig thumb.gif

Here's another shot with focus on White Acrylic/Wires/Light.
Note this is not the sleeving I am going to use..just default EVGA cables; for measurement. MDPC sleeving is all white with Maroon or maybe orange/grey accent; which is yet to be made:

Can't wait to see all the sleeving done with the cables!

Need some thoughts on this one..
so in terms of cabling;

PSU: realized that I need another 6 inches /15 cms for PSU cable...so its good I have 16AWG Wire.
Radiator Fans: For fan cabling was planning to use ModMyToys Distribution Block so replacement of fans is easier.


Question is should i solder new cabling from right most fan so that it would reach (short at the moment); OR use female fan connector pin to extend to distribution block OR just eliminate the distribution block all together and have all fans on a single radiator going to a single cable into the AQ5 LT.
Last option would leave me at a disadvantage of redoing sleeving when fan gets busted few years down the road

I used a similar version of that distribution strip to my 5 XT and it works great.

I am sure you thought of this but I would make sure you think about running more than 3 or 4 of those Cougars off a single header on the 5 XT. They pull 0.3 AMPS each and the 5XT has a max of 5 Amps across all four channels if you water cool the fan amps on the back of the board. If you go more than 3 to a single header you will limit the draw you can place on the others. If you want to run a bunch of fans off a single header you might look at the power adjust that can handle a little over 2 Amps on the one channel.

I don't follow Martins lead and smoke your XT like he did when he was reviewing it doh.gif

Thanks RatDog.
I linked wrong distribution picture. Should stop thinking too much...
The odd connector (picture below) is going to LT5 . Which would give me option of replacing one fan at a time, if it gets busted.

Could get 4x of these distribution going as 2x into LT, giving capacity of 6 fans per radiator to one LT header. Not that I am going 6 fans per radiator for sure..just a thought for expansion.

If this works , then still the question on extending wiring by soldering at fan (under sticker- would get messy) OR soldering wires (easier) OR female extension connector for right most fan.



Edit: Yes I forgot about the total draw of Amps. Hmm I have to rethink the wiring part again taking it account the draw. Had this all figured out few months back with PA2's, and then dropped PA2's when USB Pumps came out.

@RatDog
Thanks man. Wiring definitely needs to be longer after doing the layout and load is now split for fans (Have to use AQ XT as well.):

Anyone see any issues here in this layout (sorry couldn't make it simpler):





Questions probably for Shoggy...But if anyone knows please chime in:
1) I think I can skip the Aquabus connectors on D5, D5 Adaptor, & Flow Meter?
2) Any way to get all those Alarms into a nice 5.25 bay with speaker to see which unit failed via LED indicators? (heh)
3) D5 has temp connections and D5 Pump adaptor also has temp connections. Any of them worth connecting when D5 is going USB?
4) D5 Pump Adaptor --where is the Fill Sensor--is that via USB...or what I marked as Temperature is really Fill Level Sensor?
