[Build Log] Mercury S8 Gaming Rig - Page 5

post #41 of 83
Yeah I am currently in the process of sorting out all my cables and fans as well.
I was going to buy 1 of those exact phoyba splitters as well. but mine would be the "3Pin Molex to 4x 3Pin" version.

I am going to get this which has 3x 3pin connections: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-011-AQ
Use 2 connections for my 2 radiators and then the last connection for my exhaust fans (2 of them)

Getting white cables then to match my white NoiseBlocker E-loops smile.gif
Just waiting for overclockers to get the white cables back in stock.

I agree nametwin.
I just wish they weren't RH branded.

Even preferably custom design ones. People would pay premium for that.

What do you folks use to consolidate your fans into an Aquaero or other fan controller?
Looking great!

Since the Aquaero 6 has extremely powerful PWM ports you can hook up a lot of fans to each port. It has 2.5A per channel and 3A if you watercool it. I can almost guarantee that you can run 10 fans with that, easily. Just make a cable, or use a splitter if you want that instead, and hook 'em up!

Thread Starter 
I've made some decisions and moved forward with a couple things. I've started laying out some of the cables - these shots are without any ties etc. For the moment I think I like the layout in the top.

Very early cable layout in the top for the 2 360s.

I've attached the mount for the pumps and res to the bottom plate in the case. There really wasn't much doubt that I'd settle on this location but I like it and I think it will show well through the side window.

Final mounting position for the pumps and res.another pump/res shot

The side mount radiator has taken a lot of experimenting. In the end I've decided on the thin 360 with the fittings in the back of the case. There's room to run the tubes and still keep the fans in push/pull. I haven't run the tubes yet, but I have the fans and cables in place.

Cables on the side mount 360.The side mount 360 in place.

The Aquaero now lives at the bottom of the case. I like this better than where I had it before even though the cabling might get a little tight with the pumps in place.

Another random shot of the pumps/res.

And finally, I sleeved the pump cables. I've had worse first attempts at things like this. I'm reasonably pleased with the results. It's really starting to feel like it's all coming together.

Can 4 2.5inch drives fit on that drive mount?

If you are referring to the hidden tray under the motherboard, yes, it takes either 2x3.5", 1x3.5" and 2x 2.5" or 4x 2.5".

Another quick question about the hidden drive bays (I hadn't even known about them till this thread), but do you know could I fit 9.5mm, or even 15mm thick, 2.5" drives in there? I have a thing for 2.5" drives...

Thanks in advance,
K


Drives in question, for the curious:

(yes i know the 2TB version is ridiculously expensive)

Yes they will fit - the drive holder has enough depth for standard 3.5" drives and enough space for four 2.5" laid out next to each other. Akira749 explained it with pictures here... http://www.overclock.net/t/1458099/caselabs-announces-the-mercury-s8/1590_30#post_22031025
