Finally got everything assembled last night:



Took longer than I expected, in part because of the unorthodox layout, but mostly because there's a lot of planning involved. That, and some of the terrific builds that have been posted in this thread really inspired me to try and make it as neat as possible. Pretty happy with the result, though I might still tweak some things. Advice and critique would be much appreciated.

Overall it was a pretty smooth build, with only a few niggles along the way. For instance, most of my SATA cables have right-angle connectors on one end, but it turns out those don't work with the X-Docks (which is where my hard drives are right now), so I had to rummage around a bit to find ones with straight connectors on both ends.



Cooling performance seems great so far. I bought the 200 mm Megaflow fan with the case, but right now have it disconnected because I ran out of controllable fan headers on my motherboard and it was a bit annoying at full speed (that's how quiet the rest of the case is). Will probably hook it up through a pot at some point to evaluate how much of a difference it makes at lower speeds, but right now I'm happy with the way it is.

Full setup:

An update on my XB build. Having issues with my two water coolers (H100i fan controller failed, then tried an H220 which was loud as hack and had air trapped inside) I have ended up with a new Noctua NH-C14 CPU cooler. Certainly makes the case look more filled, but it is certainly serving it's purpose.

Also cleaned up my cable management a bit, but I can only go so far.



Yes, i'm a Noctua fan. Sue me smile.gif

For that pun expect my lawyer to be contacting yours.

If I did this to my case it would be just for show not cooling, with the amount of rads and fans(3 pin) I have. I was looking at the Aquaero for cooling control, absolutely awesome piece of kit but settled on the sunbeamtech for it's looks to blend in with the build. Also it's 45w per channel capacity and 6 channels to cope with the amount of fans I have.

  Anyone who fancies a go is most welcome, I thought I'd put it out there for all and see who runs with it. It won't offer any real cooling benefit to most people, it's just a fun mod to make someone's case a bit       more individual. for the price of around $15 - $20 for the manual version it's worth a go even if it turns out badly.

 

That was my point. It's a great mod. Just makes no sense to have it temp controlled when you're watercooling. I think you'll come up with a more creative use for it. Even having it on a little car remote would make more sense IMO. That's how IT DIVA rigged hers up. Logisys has a Car Remote Molex Kit.

 

Pretty much everything i know about cooling and modding, i learned from OCN and the people/sites connected to the community. Also from saying the wrong answer and having people correct me :p

PWM has alot of advantages though. For instance, the Aquaero can handle 2.5A per channel, more with the passive heatsink, and even more with the waterblock. So 2.5A @ 12V = 30W as opposed to the Sunbeam's 45W. But if you're running PWM fans off the Aquaero, the fans are being powered straight from the PSU. So the 30W would be irrelevent. PWM doesn't need to use the resources of the unit that's controlling it. Only uses the RPM & PWM signals (well as long as you have a pwm splitter). So even though the Sunbeam can handle more Watts per channel, the PWM capability of the Aquaero 6 can handle 10 times more fans per channel

Let's hope it still looks that pretty when the stop plugs are replaced with fittings and tubing :o
