[Build Log] STH10 - Project Fill it UP - Page 24

I promise ill post Photos Today. After i come from MMA Training. THe pro duos are two expensive. at 1500 a pop, im looking at 3000 EUR for GPUs alone. And with 4gb per gpu its totalz not worth it.
If they were 1000 euro i would probabablz consider it, but with 4gb per gpu thez should sel them for 800 euros.

So for 800 euros im getting gtx 1080 two pieces, even if i own a free sync monitor.

1)Here is where the pumps are going to stay, i have thought a lot about, and i find this the best spot. THe yellow/red part of the pump needs to be towards me, because it will have a LCD (In the new AquaComp Pump), this will place the rezervoir filling ports in the back. Filling them will have to be done through some sort of tubing that will go up top the case. I am pondering of linking the fill ports together, separate them through an Y connections, and with valve on each side, and one filling port that comes all the way up. Im still thinking how i will do this.
Im not sure yet if ill make 2 separate loop, ore one loop with 2 inside circuits in parallel. Will probably stick to two separate loops.


2)Here is an additional support for the plate where the pumps sit made of coins sticked together. Even though its a double plate on a heavy duty bar, the plate bends back because of the weight. Theres going to be additional weight from water, so made this support. Thats why the height i choose for the horizontal bar. Bad part is i cant have any vertical bars.


3)Here is the 140.1 double circuit radiator. After i have taken it out, i allmost thought i wasnt or couldnt use it any more. THen i realized i could install it in the upper compartment. The problem is, there the mountings are 120mm, and on the side there sits a 80mm fan.
Luckily i had a coolance aluminum adapter (140 to 120 mm) and i use it to attack the radiator to the 120mm fan. I knew i had lying somewehre a plastic adaptor from 140 to 120mm , and then the allready present 120 to 80 mm adapter. So this would be the solution, and it worked, a bit complicated, but it work. The cool thing is the plastic adapters that allow the 80 mm fan to be mounted to the 140mm radiators now act as a shroud, which help improve airflow. Also the radiator thickness was enough not to cause any problems. Now this upper compartment seems also full. Its going to be so more, since theres the water filter here, and the logistic of the tubes its going to be a pain in the ass. Im thinking of using some straight tubing, with some passthrough bits power fitting, but im still researching this.


4)Here is the back of the case. As you can see ive had to do some modifications to allow the motherboard to fit. Is looks really bad, but its working. Thats why i started designing my very own back part that would fit.

Here is a short video with what i have done so far !

I still have a lot of work to do

It's always important to create a pre-build concept and hold to that theme. biggrin.gif

I like that Sanyo Denki fan, ah makes my heart swell up and burst. tongue.gif

@Bytales is this the pump upgrade you are considering?

Yup, the red upgrade front only. Seems pretty expensive if you ask me

Everything in your rig is expensive man. tongue.gif

So the LCD display pump control panel upgrade will fit right in.


What's money, when you're having this much fun, right? biggrin.gif

Ist not my fault the good stuff is so expensive. Im now in the thought process of how is the watercooling Loop going to fit all together. And i Need a drill with 20 mm Diameter to drill the case for passthrough Fittings.

Here are the latests Updates


1)I have finally managed to find a good spot for the Pumps. While the Pumps are here, i can install extra wide Graphic Cards, and i dont need to worry about the fact that waterblocks of these extrawide graphic cards make the card extra wider because of the In and Out Inlets


2)I have also connected the Aquacomputer Peripherals, the Orange and Blue Cables go to the Red Pumps, and their Reservoir Fill Sensors. The Blue and Black Cabels connect the D5 Pumps mounted on the Radiators. This way i can have them connected all the time, and i wont probably need to setup Aquabus connection since the USB is on all the Time. And here is a top View of the Stuff. The 2 extra Free slots are for the Flow Meters.


3)A closeup of the Pumps. As you can see the left Pump is tied together, because i broke a teeth that holds together the Pump and Reservoir pieces. This way i wont have to buy another reservoir which is 70 euros.


4)Since i relocated the 140.1 double circuit radiator, i had to bring its 30% piece back in the CPU Loop. Here is how it gets connected back in the loop.


5)A wider view of how the water loop connection looks like. I managed to make it out of the tube pieces ihad by, i didnt need to cut extra tubing that much.


6)A view of how the back looks like now. I have used these adapters to connect the 4 front usb 3.0 ports, and another 2 usb 3.0 front ports one of which is the bitfenix card reader which also connects through usb 3.0
This way i could scrap the Silverstone ECU01 PCI Express adapters that offered 19 PIN internal USB 3.0 connectors. Since these were powered through SATA, i had to scrap those connections as well, since they werent needed any more. In the mean time Silverstone launched the ECU05 PCI Express adapter that has USB 3.1 Connector wich can utilize the whole PCI-E 2.0 x2 10Gbps throughput through which its connected to the motherboard. A nice way to add high speed USB 3.1 to the PC


7)Here are the Delock Adapters (Item No. 65398) which made the whole thing possible. Since the whole contraption is pretty big, i had to find a place where thery wouldnt come in way, I had to use some 19PIN USB 3.0 extenders, to bring these adapters where you see them, and from here another cable that comes in the USB 3.0 HUB. I glued them in place with the glue band, now they wont be in the way. There are enough cables as they are.


8)You can see here the 3rd USB 3.0 Delock adapter that connects with the bitfenix card reader and adds it in the USB 3.0 HUB


9)Here is how the back looks now. The red cable that you can barely see that goes in the USB 3.0 Hub connects to the Aquaero 6 XT, and the 6 black and blue cables connect to the Aquacomputer Poweradjusts.


10)Here you can see how the back evolved through the multiple modifications the PC suffered. I have finally find a way to connect the 5 pin USB Aquacomputer peripherals to the USB HUBs through a standard USB connector. THat proved difficult to achieve since i had a viariable length to deal with, and i had to have a cable that has a standard USB connector on one side, and a 4 or 5 pin USB adapter on the other side. Such cables dont exist, so at first i used standard USB cable that i have cut to length (the blue ones). These resultated in long cables, i wasnt that statisfied of the result. THen i tried with coiled cables. The result was a mess as you can see.
Then it hit me this time. I could take USB cables and position them on the HUBs, and from here extend the connections to the Poweradjusts since i had USB 2.0 bulck cable lying around (thats the blue and black cable you see coming from on top of the Hubs.
And here is how it looked until now. This time i am satisfied. I will only have a single USB 3.0 Slot on the lower USB hub free.


Heheheh, is the PC working now, you might ask yourself. I am rocking a 750titanium Card, waiting for the Radeon 480x to show up, and hopefully Powercolor will build a Dual 480x2 Devil. Since i need a dual card to install 4 GPUs. And as tenting as the performance of the Geforce 1080 might be, i own a freesync monitor, and AMD cards are better for mining.

The PC no, it still doesnt work, since the pump leaks, because i forgot to install a gasket, once i replaced a broken pump part (which had said gasket attached). The gasket should arrive this week sometime, and the PC will be working again. THis month im going on holiday, and the video cards i will get me after i come from Vacation.
That will be second week of August. Untill then ill know whats the deal with custom 480x models, and i powercolor launched a Devil Dual Card. THey had better.

The Plan is to get two of them and cool them with a Custom Made Alphacool Waterblock. Instead of 1000 Watts what two 390x2 would have drawed, these cards would draw only half of that, maybe 600 Watts (4 GPUs)

We shall see.

I picked up some WAGO connectors for my build ... using them to control the power / info flow to and from my pedestal (fans) and pumps.

Question for you ... how did you stick them down? I am using 2-sided scotch tape at the moment and performance is spotty (2 out of 7 are lifting).
