there is so much hardware for this build, at times I wonder, where does this go?

if you want I can get all the hardware gathered, kind of pile it on the table top, and snap a pic of it for ya tongue.gif

Haha, that would be a nice visual, but not necessary! Concentrate on getting this beast together so we can see it in it's completed glory! tongue.gif

I was thinking about getting the frame done for the fan controllers next, instead of the TEC power supplies, that way I can clean up some of the fan wires I have hanging about right now.

it will be 4 X fan controllers stacked on top of each other, I have 2 X 6 channel fan controllers, one 5 channel, and one 3 channel fan controller.
one of the 6 channel fan controllers, and the 3 channel fan controller are 30+ watt fan controllers.

out side the ice chest I have 21 fans in total that will be plugged into these controllers.
inside the ice chest I have 4 fans that will plug into the motherboard.
other things that will be plugged into the other 6 channel fan controller will be one flow meter one for the hot side water loop, and one water temp sensor for the hot side water loop.
I have a water temp sensor with display, and a flow meter with display, for the cold side water loop.

I got the last two Radiators for the build they are the same as the others.
I will install them as soon as they get here, for right now, I have started on the frames for the fan controllers.
I might have that done in 3 to 4 days.

this build is a wiring nightmare, as a result, I will be doing my best, but there will still be a wire here, and a wire there, going in every direction possible.
I will try to clean this up in later remodels of the build.
the fan wiring came out looking really good for the most part you can't see any of it. unless you are looking directly behind the fan controllers, otherwise the radiator shrouds hide most of it.
but the flow sensor and temp sensor wires are just kind of laying out there in the middle, not much I can do about it.(to be fixed later)
because I cant hide the power wires for all of the fan controllers, I decided to use the LED molex extensions cables, now the bottoms around the outside of all the radiators are lit up.
I may put some lighting on the bottom of the radiators on the inside as well to light up the area where the pumps and reservoir are.

.

Could you hide some wiring inside the frames? Like drill a hole, install a rubber grommet in the hole and feed the wires through? Just another bajer-idea tongue.gif

well you see where my foot is, that is about where the fan controllers are being installed.
I am building a frame for them, but it is made of aluminum angle. not really any way to hide anything there, but I will be looking for better options later as upgrades to the system.

The problem isn't the the space between the cable and the box. It's between the strands of the wires themselves. Ideally you would want each wire to be a single (thicker) strand wire where it enters the box. Depending on how many wires you have running into the box this could be a PITA. It might even be overkill but my wife says that's my middle name.

I might have to look into more wireless components. Heck, if a person had the funds the only thing needing to go though the wall of the box would be the evaprator hoses and the power cord.

Haven't read the entire thread (yet, it's really interesting) but can you not create plugs on the box itself?



I've never heard about these vacuum / chill boxes for pc's before, so I might be thinking way too simple and not taking whatever it is into account.
But the picture shows what I mean, and then you seal up the plugs (some how rolleyes.gif, I have no idea)

sure, that would work.
this is what I did.
ok I have really thought about what I think you are asking here.
how do I seal up the trouble spots in the wire to get the chamber to hold a vacuum?
as I stated I only had two spots in my test build that gave me any trouble but this is exactly what I did to fix the leak.
to find the leak for me was easy, I smoke so all I did was blow smoke in the area I thought might be leaking and watch to see where the smoke was being sucked into.
there where two bad wires crimps where the wire attached to the pin inside the connector so I removed the pin from the connector soldered the end of the wire to the pin, by doing this I basically made the end of that wire a solid core wire at the end of it. I put the pin back into the connector and resealed the end of the connector with flex seal.

to seal most of the wire in the connectors was also easy for me, I will try to explain this process the best I can.
ok I have two 1/4 turn valves on my vacuum pump so that I can adjust the amount of suction I put onto any chamber.
when I first went to seal the connectors I had adjusted the valves so that there was a constant vacuum on the chamber but not much, as it was sucking air in from all over the place.
understand the holes that we are talking about here are like .001 in size I could literality seal a hole that size with a drop of oil, true the constant vacuum would eventually pull the oil all the way through the wire and I would be left with the same issue of it leaking, but it would seal it for a short time.
so as I sprayed the flex seal onto the connectors the amount of vacuum on the chamber would rise, and I would adjust my valves to lower the amount of suction as I finished the last connector, the vacuum on the chamber shot way up, so I turned the vacuum pump off and released all the vacuum that was on the chamber, then I let it set for 3 days to make sure the flex seal was dry.
so to summarize I used the vacuum to suck some liquid rubber up in between all the little strands of wire.
it did not work perfectly, but it did seal up most of them right off.



the trunk line that goes through the chest, so far this is what it looks like, I might still need a couple of wires.

there are some braided wire in there and I will have to strip the braiding off of them.

the section in between the Velcro straps is where the chest wall will be.

I wanted to see some water temp meters showing low Temps or subzero, also some condesiation going on ouside of the box rolleyes.gif
