That is no small compliment either, there are already so many incredible Caselabs builds on this website.

Indeed it's not & Yes there are grouphug.gif

Quick update for the morning....
Made the pass through hole for the SATA Power cables.
Made the hole 25mm (using tools pictured) and used a 1" grommet.
Plan to run the HDD cage fan & the 2 x pump power cables through this also wink.gif

Another day and another cable completed thumbsupsmiley.png
Finished off the HDD cage SATA power cable.
Routed this one directly to the PSU wink.gif

Yeah, I agree. That HDD shot is a thing of beauty. This build is one of the best combinations of sleeving and cable management I've ever seen. Inspiring stuff. Keep it going fast_fate!

Well surprise surprise, another few cables done today.
And few cut outs rolleyes.gif

Wiring up the pumps was the mission for today.
Should have been easy right - YES....
BUT I like a challenge and and a switch and volt/amp meter for each pump was what I chose to make this wiring harder.
So much harder wackosmiley.gif

Couldn't find a suitable spot in the main chamber.
and to be honest it's more for commissioning and testing than anything else.
So down in the ped it went.
I noticed some space being wasted between the front and the rad biggrin.gif
My ped's front cover is solid so this is hidden away which suits just perfect for these thumb.gif
Wanted the top bay but couldn't fit (just). actually did fit but not with the stop plug screwed in tongue.gif
As it is in the middle bay the cables go between the port chambers.

Sorry about the pics - seems like I missed the mark with the lighting sozo.gif
The 4th pic is a good indicator of the red LED display.

1st with switch off, and then switch on and no load, all as expected (or at least hoped) wink.gif



Then I plugged a fan in and the amps indicator comes to life biggrin.gif



Used the last PCI-e socket on the PSU to draw a 12v and common for each pump.
Here you can see a red and a white sleeve running from the PSU for the completed set.
The single red drooping down is the 12v for the next one.
On top of the PSU you can see a white plug (an 8 pin PCI-e female) which I'll plug the pumps into after sleeving and shortening.
I chose the 8 pin as I can plug a couple more 12v lines into it if need be, and the 8 pin male plug fits through the rubber grommet pass through with the SATA power wires.



Here's a few closer up pics behind the switch and gauge.
Couple of 2 into ones, triple out of the switch, and a couple of solder splices shrink wrapped under the sleeving - challenge accepted biggrin.gif
Round 1 goes to me, tomorrow round 2 and we do it all again.

Your build is freaking awesome!

Can't wait to see more of it drool.gif

Loving the volt / amp monitor idea, but at the same time I hate you because I'm jealous that I don't have the skills to do stuff like that. tongue.gif Great job sir!
