Start pump with PSU inside case?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on getting a fully modular PSU, considering no cables is attached to PC components can I simply install the PSU inside the PC case with all the components/loop then connect one cable for the pump and do the Black/Green wire trick on 24pin connector to start the PSU?

I think this should be OK?

Or are there some ESD or other problems to worry about?
I'm aware that leaking on to PSU is a issue but I will use plenty of towel incase of leak.

That is fine. I did the same for my loop and nothing went wrong, just make sure to use plenty of towel as you said.

I find yanking / installing cables ...especially if you have rigid tubing can be problematic as rads and other things get in the way.

I chose to grab this little bugger for $20 and eliminate the hassle of disconnecting / reconnecting everything.

Just plug the pump in, no cable wrestling, no hassle .... main PSU stays off....I leave it under the HD cages next to the pump

I would rather have 0 cables/extra psus laying around when filling and bleeding air out of system, I really hate lifting and shaking the case when there are bunch of cables running around everywhere biggrin.gif

I am of the mind that everybody should do what works best for them. Looks like you have planned a method that will work well for you with for your rig .....with my case size, weight (40 pounds case alone) and internal arrangement, it's just so much easier and convenient this way. One unplug / replug instead of a dozen or more.

With this little gem, the mini-PSU gets lain on the desk when in use and so small it fits in my shirt pocket; the switch can be used on the desk or the floor (stole my wife's Xmas tree foot switch) leaving ya hands free for that case tiling you mentioned. Scares me to think I might delay shutting down the pump for 4-5 secs when a fitting pops a leak or I hear pump noise because my hands were busy with case in the air and I had to set this behemoth down first.

I don't have any anything flopping around anywhere, tubing is rigid and all cables are firmly tied down every few inches and some (ie EPS cable behind top rad, 24 pin behind rigid tubing and reservoir bracket) are inaccessible with WC components in place.

In short, I'm with the Singularity Computers guy for all the reasons of convenience and safety he stated in the video below....loop filling and PSU discussion starts about 1:45.... pump protection about 3:00 ....

But as it's advantages will be relative to the complexity of the rig, it certainly won't be be everyone's cup of tea.....just threw it out there in case it fit ya situation made it worthwhile, ... certainly was for me .... one of the best $20 I ever spent.....especially considering it's a single PSU that will get used on many, many builds.
