Thanks for stopping in and the kind comments
I'll throw a little update in for ya's as well, but to be honest haven't had time to get much done recently.
Changed the pump mount to the Bitspower dual D5 and raised the stands up so better clearance for the cables on the Aquacompter D5.
I'll most likely paint the stands and the pump covers white.
No matter how hard I tried with pump location I couldn't get both the front bays removable and the rear HDD bay removable, so I spaced it to be able to take out the front ones.
At final assembly must remember to put the HDD cage in first
I've decided to run cables from the PSU in the pedestal to the mid chamber where extensions will take off from.
So I've got a heap of cables in training from the PSU.
Got my bracketing sorted for where the GPU cables run down between the fans.
and made another pass through bracket for the cables to pass through into the "cable chamber" and yes the push only rad still fits in there
I started to bulk sleeve the GPU cables coming down the center of the fans but space was too tight for that even, so now just the cross over section at the top will have the bulk sleeve.
Where the cables come out the bottom next the the fan pictured) the shelf sticks out about 7mm, just enough so the sleeved bundles don't fit out the gap that they need to.
However all the individual wires will fit un-sleeved - so I've started individual sleeving just before they come through the pass through holes.
The 24 pin will require more thought, as while they will fit in the top bracket, bringing them down will need another option.
At the moment the front flex-bays can still be put in & out without removing anything else and I'ld like to keep that as is.
I was thinking about trying to fit all the 24 pin wires down inside the flex-bay bracket but I don't think they'll fit anyway, but would loose in/out of the flex-bay.
and the extension take off point.
Once I get all these main cables done then I'll move onto accessory power and cabling - so much wire
