[Build Log] ASUS7 in S8 - Page 3

And the beat goes on.

The Reservoir Hole had to be moved further to the rear to accommodate the Switch cables below the Midplate.



With the hole that far back, it overlapped the rear of the SSI-EEB Motherboard Tray. So I reverted to the standard Motherboard Tray.



I did not like using the standard Motherboard Tray, as the SSI-EEB Tray helps conceal the cables on the FB side of the case. So I modified the rear of the SSI-EEB Tray to accommodate the Reservoir Hole.



Mounted the Pumps in the basement, with a swing out drain valve. There will be a short length of 1/2"X3/4" soft tubing from the Reservoir output to the Pump input.





As you can see from the barb fitting on the Pump Output and the Reservoir Return lines, I had planned on using soft tubing for the run up to the Radiators, and back down from the CPU Block. I am having second thoughts on the soft tubing, and I'm going to work on some PETG for those sections. That will also give me a place (below the Midplate) to mount the Hi Flow Sensor.

In my spare time today (LOL) I began labeling the cables. A quick cable count of Power, USB, Aquabus, SATA, and other various cables CPU Fan RPM, etc., there will be 71+ cables in the System.

Nice work on the drilling / cutting. It is starting to take shape.

Well, did the stuff and pray thing over the weekend. Decided to go with the PETG on all but the Reservoir output to Pump section, which is below the Midplate.



To monitor the case temperature I installed a Temp Probe at the input and rear output of the case. The top Radiators are exhausting, which will help reduce dust accumulation. I may have to rethink this as with only the two 120mm fans for input there might be significant negative case pressure.





As you can see, cable management is not my thing, hence the stuff and pray comes into play. But as I mentioned at the beginning, this is a WORK computer, and definitely not a SHOW computer.

Right side view. Koolance Flow Sensor is predominant, however there is no window on this side of the case




Left side views. The PCI > USB-3 card is for the second pair of USB-3 jacks on the front. The PCI > Serial Port card is for the COM Ports I require for Hearing Aid Programming.





Mounted to the bottom on the right side are the NZXT IU01 USB Hub and the Aquacomputer Farbwerk LED Controller. There will be RGB LEDs at the top of the case on both sides. I use the LED color as an indication of the CPU Temperature. With 6 USB connected components, the IU01 is a lifesaver.



I had an unused DEMCIflex 360 Radiator Filter that I cut down for the 240 intake in the front of the case. Saved an amazing $10 doing that. smile.gif



Now to get the LEDs installed, and then muscle this thing up into it's final resting place.

I do have a programming issue with the Farbwerk that I'll discuss in the OCN Aquaero thread.
