# [Build Log] Liquorice Allsorts: CaseLabs S5 + Pedestal - Page 28

Maths

The ASUS X99-M motherboard has two auxiliary 8-pin power fittings. Each 'port' is 4.2mm from the next (center to center) except for ports #4 and #5 which are 6.4mm (center to center).

A wire from port #2 with a single 90° left turn needs to be 1/4 inch longer (with respect to the wire from port #1).

Or 1/4" per 90° turn.

Note: The extra due to the gap between #4 and #5.

Or 3/8" per 90° turn.

My extension needs two 90° turns so each wire needs to be 1/2" longer than the previous one (with a wrinkle for wire #5).

Wire from port #1 is length Y inches.
Wire from port #2 is length Y + 0.5
Wire from port #3 is length Y + 1
Wire from port #4 is length Y + 1.5
Wire from port #5 is length Y + 1.5 + 0.75 (or + 2.25)
Wire from port #6 is length Y + 2.75
Wire from port #7 is length Y + 3.25
Wire from port #8 is length Y + 3.75

The the 24-pin extension cable, I did the top row all at the same time (clip to length x 12, strip ends x24, attach pins x 24, sleeve x 12) and then repeated the process for the bottom row. I will have to work horizontally this time ... two (2) wires at a time.

Oh ... I expect the color pattern to be ... OOBYYBGG (but I might put green at the top) across the 2 x 8 pin extension. I have ordered some 16-pin combs from MainFrameCustom.
Ruffbro, mad respect for the precise calculations! My build is 100% eyeball engineering vs your paper math approach. I love it, totally awesome!

Its what I do ... actuary by profession.

If you look really closely at my 24-pin extention, you can see that some of the inner wires are on the long side. That said ... the whole thing is on the long side. I measured 11", rounded up to 12" (just to be safe) but probably could have got away with 8".
Short Update on Outstanding Items - update

1. 2 x 8-pin secondary motherboard power extensions
• Work out the maths for different cable lengths
• Options re color combinations
• cut wire to length, pin, sleeve, take pain killers for damage to fingers
• plug into fittings, add combs, attach extension to PSU [new]
2. Aquaero & Fan / Pump management
• Wire power supply to Aquaero
• Wire in case fans (intake / exhaust) in Aquaero - fan port #1
• Wire in temperature probes [new]
• Wire pedestal fans in Aquaero
• Wire pumps in Aquaero
• Wire RPM reporting cable to Motherboard
3. Tubing
• Hardline tubing to Flow Meter
• Soft tubing from flow meter to CPU block
• Soft tubing from CPU block to Reservior
4. ODD / HDD / SSD
• Install and connect power and data
5. Power / Reset Switch
• Install
• Create 'Case Mod' to cover power / reset switches
• Ensure Case Mod also provides cable conduit to items at top of flex-bay (ie Aquaero)

Why is it that every time I check the required length of some wires (ie Aquaero power cable), add a margin of error, strip, crimp and sleeve ... it always ends up too short? I think I need to add a good inch for my crimping and sleeving.

I need some help with this decision. My solid tubing will be green (see pics below). The run to the CPU will come up just near the 2 x 8-pin CPU power cables. The question is ... what should the color mix for the extension be? GBYBO or OBYBG?

I am not sure that the green of the sleeving and the green of the tubing is a close enough match to put them 'almost' touching each other? An alternative is that sub in the pink for the green ... then there is no change of a clash.

Feedback desperately required!

Note that the tubing color in the top picture is more accurate and the green sleeving color is not well represented at all .
Best picture I have of the green sleeving (Click to show)

OBYBG imo. too much green together will clash.

Ask Carlapoo, when she returns, women are amazing with color selections.

Thx all. I'll ask my good wife too. I've copy these votes over here from the Millennium thread.

Wife has voted OBYBG (orange on top) and as she gets 72 votes to everyone else's 1, GBYBO is looking very unlikely now.

No rush to complete the extension as the fittings and combs don't get here until Tuesday.
Sixteen (16) wires cut, stripped, crimped, sleeved and photographed. Just need the combs and fittings.

I've been discussing this with the Dr but it was un-nerving getting a call ('Want to talk to you about your procedure tomorrow') when I hadn't previously heard that I was having a procedure tomorrow.

At least I won't have too much time to get nervous and worry about it.

So ... I did have the back surgery yesterday. Radiated pain down the left leg is not gone, mild pins and needles in the left foot is gone. Localized sharp pain in the middle of the lower back (site of 1" incision) is painful. But I am back up and walking, standing, lying down ... not too much sitting yet.

I think it went pretty well.
