Good stuff looking forward to firing them up. Much prefer the looks over the corsairs I had smile.gif just hope my wiring is good, 8 now have a 3pin plug with the tach removed and one has the normal 4pin to feed back to the board

Will be awesome to see how you do it! I am wanting to do the same thing for my radiator fans. make them all one wire so to speak, only thing is I don't know how so this will be a treat!

Great job so far man!

Ok so the fan harness wasn't exactly fun, to be honest I found it harder than the 24pin! Double pins and awkward sleeving. I already converted 8 of the fans to 3pin connectors with the tach wire removed and left one with the 4 pin, the idea being to simplify the wiring but to be honest in hindsight I probably should have just done them with the 4 pin plug and left the tach wire out on the harness but never mind its all functional and if a fan was to ever need replacing I would have to shorten and sleeve it anyway so it's no drama. I basically made an individual harness for each rad and then a connecting harness which splits to the m/b header and psu. Here's the pics....



All the wires were daisy chained with double pins



Mock up on the big rad to see how it was fitting



Couple of sneaky shots of the vardars, personally think they suit the build 10 fold over the corsairs smile.gif





Mock up on the little rad, all looking good!



One harness complete and heatshrunk



Other one finished



This is the mb/psu harness with a connector for each sub harness on the rads



Did another shrinless job straight to the psu connector



Test fit of the power harness in the case, should hide nicely in the top



10hrs in netted me this, yes i'm bloody slow biggrin.gif







Despite the long haul it was mission success having tested the cable on my other machine. Set the bios settings to the extremes to check the pwm range and saw 680ish through to 1430 while stressing with prime thumb.gif

Now my next and almost last headache is pump placement, now all the gpu wires are in my original plan to mount the pump on the case floor is scuppered as there is simply not enough room left. I could mount it to the front radiator but am trying to avoid it as I don't want to strain the mounts on an already heavy radiator. Got doodling and came up with an almost floating mount which should place it amidst the gpu wires or just above and allow everything to clear, my friend is taking a look at it for me and hopefully will get something knocked up in aluminium smile.gif







Also found a few minutes this afternoon to make the SSD psu cable which turned out perfect, had a jiggle of the cable routing around the back too.





My little monkey wanted a snap with the beast lol



You might of noticed my pic quality has slightly improved thanks to a new Sony Z5 so thought I would chuck in some more general pics before things start getting covered by final assembly thumb.gif Thanks for reading tongue.gif

Cheers buddy, here's the diagram I made for how i wired it, hope it helps you out smile.gif

Looking good, nice to see some progress on this!

Why did you wire the fans to the PSU directly instead of the motherboard? Is the load from the fans that high that the fan header on the board can't handle it or was it more of a general safety measure?

Not sure really suppose I'm just lazy and didn't look at the board output to work it out, as you say safe and reliable power this way ☺

Loving this build, it mite not be the latest and greatest hardware, but I just love how you took a dremel to dvi connectors and waterblocks so you could run 3-way sli on an m-atx board, and also cramming crazy rads into such a small space, amusing in the best kind of way! thumb.gif
