sleeving you PSU will be the vast majority of work in you build, but is well worth it IMO since you can make it look absolutely beautiful (just look through the sponsored mods to see what it can look like)... as for the MOLEX to SATA, i would just use your PSUs SATA connectors... why are you not?

I'll watch the guides, thanks you very much.

The reason i wont be using, or at least try not tu use sata connector, and want to use the splitter, is becasue there aren't enough of them

Probably 4 Pump (one on radiator and one on reservour for each loop) = 4 molex
aquaaero XT and 3 power adjust 2 = 4 Molex
2x (3x5.25'' for 5x3,5'' hdd backplanes)= 4 molex
cd rom = 1 sata
2,5'' hdd = 1 sata
2x3,5'' hdd on the side of case = 2 sata
6x2,5''hdd backplane = 2 molex
2x2,5'' hdd+slim odd = 2 molex
1 rack for external coupling 2,5'' and 3,5'' hdd = 1 sata power

Total=
5 sata
20 Molex

THe evga supernova has 8 Molex and 12 sata

There arent enough connectors available.
I can use one connector or 2 or three things that i think and know that will use less current.
For instance 8 SSDs and one slim optical drive can be powered from one sata connector i think.

I read for instance the one samsung 840 pro ssd 512 gb uses at load 0.068 W.

Thats why i'm looking into splitting.

Oh, oh, the PSU is gonna sweat.
And by the way, the PSU cables of EVGA supernova 1500 are allready sleeved. At least i think.

Splitters suck. Make your own cord! Here's mine:

Are those coming from a pci express connector ?

That looks mighty nice, and i would do that, if i knew how.

Thats the reason im looking into prebuilt solution.
Look, order, recieve, connect, ready.
No head ache.

Normally a customa made cable with the exact cable size would be something that would be better.
But i have no idea in the slightest how to do that.

Perhaps one has to buy connectors, then cables, (cables are of different thicknes, aka AWG), then sleeving.
Probably it'll be worth it.
But since i never did it, just wanted to play safe.

Perhaps its not that hard as it seems.

Thats why i planned buying backplanes, since one can use for instance 5 x 3,5'' hdd with only 2 molex. In 3x5,25 inch drive bay.
Thats why i didnt ordered the case labs accesory that hold the hdds. That why o got me only support brackets.

That areca card from your build i also plan on getting.
Im gonna be creating 2 matrixes thought
1 featuring 8 SSD and one faeturing 8 x4 TB HDD.
I think thats possible, creating two separate matrixes, isn't it ?

some PSUs use a 6-pin adapter to connect the SATA power (that is not the same as PCI by any means)... and idk y 2 matrixes wouldn't be possible

Yes...SATA straight to a 6-pin PSU connector. You just need some 18 awg wire, SATA punch down connectors, and a 6 pin PSU connector. You would crimp ATX pins onto one end of the wire, and just push the SATA connections down onto the wire wherever you want to place them. You could even steal the 6pin connector from your existing PSU. You can sleeve it also...but even if you don't, it will be cleaner than buying some splitters. I would encourage you to try. You've got an army of experienced builders here on OCN to back you up if you have any questions.

If by matrix...you are referring to a second array...then yes. I could setup a Raid 5 array, and a Raid 10 array, and have the card power them all. Your only limit is # of drives and drive space.

Just browsed you build log from 150 to 210 page. Saw the custom PA2 cables you made (the red short ones) Those are actually usefull, since 3 power adjusts are suppose to sit next to each other and the aqua buss cable seems a bit to long.

What i#m trying here to do is obvioulsy built the system with bought non modified components. Because i allready know what to plug where to plug before i order the components.

When i'll be home i'll take a look at the sleeve cables guide.
Don't know what to say now. Having Custom length cable would sure be nice, but i don't know what it involves cost wise. Besides, i have no knowledge of wiring soldering, melting, or whatever, and i'm afraid i might end up burning up something in the end.

That's why i', looking into ''pre made' solutions, like those bit fenix cables, which by the way seem nice well done.

Also evga cables are allready sleeved.

Perhaps i might give it a try doint a custom 3 pin shot cable for the aqua bus.
That seems something easy enough.
