yes that is what I am going to do. If you look at the list you should see 4 LSI raid cards. Here is how I plan on using them.

Gaming / Video Encoding Machine

1. Hooked to the motherboard in the SATA 6GB spots will be 2 SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB in a raid 0 for drive C and O/S

2. In one of the PCIE slots I will have a LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 9271-8iCC this has 1GB of Ram and the software to optimize it with SSD's
And Hooked to it will be 5 Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB and 3 SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB in Raid 0
I know it is different hard drives but told this did not matter as long as they were the same size. this should give me a 800 GB drive to use with my encoding and ripping of video and also working with pictures.

File/Media Server

1. 2 SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB in raid 0 hooked to the motherboard for the operating system

2. A LSI MegaRAID Internal SAS 9265-8i 6Gb/s w/ 1GB cache with 8 Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD6000HLHX 600GB 10000RPM SATA 6.0Gb in Raid 0 for one of the server drives

3. A LSI MegaRaid SAS 9260-8i SATA+SAS Controller Card with 4ea WD 2.5" 750GB WD7500BPKT SATA 7200RPM 16MB Cache3Gb in raid 5 and 4ea HP 300GB 15K SAS Model HUS156030VLS600 Internal Hard Drive 0B24512 Hitachi 3.5" also in Raid 5

Back-up Server

1. 2ea Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s in Raid 1 for the OS and either I will use m-atx board and the LSI LSI00244 (9201-16i) PCI-Express 2.0 x8 SATA / SAS to have 6 3TB hard drives I already have and 4 2TB drives I already have. Going to create a storage space that puts all the files on 2 drives sort of like raid 1 but O/S dose this. I am either going to use Server Essentials 2012 for O/S or Win 8. I am not worried about Win 8 as this will just be like a nas or back-up server to keep a back up of all my PC's.

But I am still considering selling the motherboard I have and the LSI card and getting the AsRock Z77 Extreme since EK made blocks for this. I think it would be cool to have 2 motherboards under water!!!! biggrin.gif

TVPC

1. This will just have a SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III since all it will do is boot-up and run internet explorer so my wife can watch her TV from Ukraine.

I hope I was clear and you can understand what I am trying to say.

My List of Power supplies..... I Might have went a Little over board on these? Who thinks I did?? biggrin.gif




I dont know is this is really Excessive Insanity

Now I need to figure out what I am going to use for each system..

  • I am thinking EVGA 1500 for the Gaming/Video Encoding computer
  • Cosair AX 1200 for the File/Media Server
  • OCZ 1250 For the storage server
  • OCZ 550 for the TVPC. but I might have to use the Seasonic 850 if I use the 7770 GHz Video card I already have...


What do you think I should Use????

Not really sure why you would need a massive psu for the TVPC part, unless you are going to be adding in a bunch of cards. I have a HTPC and it runs a mini Z68 Asrock (because Asrock boards have a CIR header for my remote), and only a HD6450 vid card for bitstreaming to my AVR. I use a separate Hauppauge PVR for recording TV. Even the little low profile HD6450 is more than sufficient for bitstreaming Hi res surround and video to the AVR-->TV, and the psu is I think a 350W, been so long since I looked at it I can't really remember.
But if you want to keep with the overkill theme then by all means throw in a larger psu/vid card.

Anyway, I was thinking about a post you made in the sleeving section about crimping 12 gauge wire. I'm not sure what it is you are going to do? I would think 12 gauge would be a royal pain, and I'm not sure you could crimp any of the normal pc type pins (minifit jr, etc) to it and if a crimper exists that will work. I don't remember offhand how many strands in typical 12 gauge but maybe you could crimp just the strands to some pins, surely not to anything as small as the SPOX fan pins though, as even 18 gauge is somewhat of a challenge with those although I have done it. Some like using 16 gauge for the psu wiring but smaller is better for me personally and I even use the .0403" OD 18 gauge for some things.

But, not being critical, just wondering how you plan to go about using the 12 gauge wire. I definitely want to see the crimps if you use it.

Yes That is why I am thinking I use the 550 watt PSU for the TVPC because that will be overkill even with the 7770 Mhz GPU...

I want to use the 12 Ga Wire so that I can get the wires to do exactly what I want them to do. If I can not crimp this into the pins then I will use the 16 ga wire I got from Lutho0's shop and crimp this into the pins and then solder the 12 ga onto the 16 1/4" or so away from the pin. I have one crimper that is suppose to be able to crimp 12 Ga wire to the molex pins. Also I have 18 GA wire and 22 ga wire for the fan connections, USB, Aquaro Bus, Things like this.

Don't worry I will take pictures of everything including my screw-ups!!

10-4. I'll be interested to see how it goes with the 12 gauge wire. I haven't used 16 gauge but it's supposed to be easier to train than 18 gauge. You could even do an extension to make it easier.

22 gauge works excellent for fan harness wiring, although I've used 26 gauge for the rpm sense wire pretty often since it doesn't carry any appreciable current and makes it a little easier to sleeve, especially if you have to tape wrap the wires.

OK Some Pictures of the Aquaero 5 that I have Purchased.. 2 LT's, 2 Power Adjust 2's and 2 Flow sensors. Was wanting them to be put in Master Slave so I could have 12 Temp headers and 8 fan controllers. I also got the Multi-Switch USB that i was going to use to Control my TEC water Chiller!!!!!!




A Picture of all my AQ5 Items.. All Alone with no one to play with them... confused.gif



My Multi-Switch USB. I was going to use this to turn the Stages of MY TEC Chiller on and off, depending on the temp of the chilled water.



One of my AQ5 Lt's



My other AQ5 Lt's



Above and below is the Pictures of My AQ5 Power-Adjust USB's and Flow Sensors...







I do not know if I want to keep this System after all the bad things I have been reading lately. I was going to Use this to control my TEC water Chiller so it is Mission Critical. I also have the Koolance System I am thinking more and more about trying this one first and if I like it better first and see if it is more reliable than the AQ5... Decisions decisions!!!! I guess i need to do a bunch of reading now..

Has anyone used the TMS-205 Software Thermal Interface Controller to control fans and pumps in their system?? If so could tell me your experiences with it??

Intel X540-T2 10 Gigabit Network cards!!!!! 3 of them!!!!

i guess the question is... are you going to watercool those gigabit cards...?
