(Build Log) Caselabs SMA8 Watercooled (Magnum opus)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
This is my 3rd PC build and first water cooled build, i will be doing cusotom sleeving,duel loops, and custom lighting.
This will be a two to three month project (i hope) also depending on what tech will be released in the next couple of months, mainly waiting on what Intel will put out for a CPU and hoping that a 3400*1440 144HZ monitor will be coming out this year:).
I have been doing quite a bit of research the past month and finally feeling comfortable with the knowledge that I've picked up to start the build. I've got a good understanding on all the parts that i will be using and pretty handy as far as any customization that will be needing to be done but I'm always looking for more input/ different ways of thinking/ or just different preferences so I'm open ears for any suggestions.
But enough of that here's what you came here for

This is what I've bought so far, i will be ordering the Case(Caselabs Magnum SMA8) in a week,(hoping there will be a memorial day discount:D). As of now i will be also getting two 1080 Founders edition *Cough reference model* and PCI SSD so I will most likely be going with an X99 Mobo and seeing what Intel will have after Computex.
Also planing on doing some fun stuff with Plexiglas and those LED's but once i get the case i will know more as far as getting the right measurements.
Still on the fence on water cooling the RAM I know it really does next to nothing but it just be for cosmetics, as for now i will be water cooling the CPU/ Mobo and both GPUs.

Nice.
How does the 4pin pwm distribution unit allow you to control the pumps?

From what i understand and been researching the Aqua Computer D5 pumps and flow meters will have to be connected individually through PWM and the USB to the aquaero 6, Once both are connected i use the aquaero 6 to assign what i connected then unplug the USB so i can connect and assign the next Aqua Computer device. From my understanding i can only do this with four Aqua Computer devices so it works out perfect for me:).

IT DIVA helped me out

To put your 4 devices on the Aquabus header, you'll need a 4-way 4-pin (PWM fan type) splitter with all 4 lines connected to all the headers so you can plug up each device to one of the splitter headers, with a 4 pin female to female cable from the splitter to the A6.

Just ordered the Case Friday pumped for it to come so i can actually start to work on things, but i was able to start on prepping the fans for the new sleeving and length, gonna have to say its a weird feeling to void the warranty on 25 not so cheap fans, lol, but it will be worth it.





Also i went ahead and ordered the white rubber pads for the fans, the factory brown wasn't a bad color but for this build it look a little off.

Hey, excited to watch this progress, mind telling me where you can order the white pads? i am also considering a black and white build with these fans!
