[HTPC] [Build Log] PARAGON - A Prodigy Re-Vamp - Page 2

PSU bolted in after attaching the the SFX adapter plate.
The SilverStone SX600-G was chosen because it is just so damn short being just 100mm long.
Using the original 24 pin cable because I didn't want to have to deal with the crossing over of every wire from top to bottom, which is one downside to this PSU.



















Before the Motherboard tray goes in, the harness for top and back fans has to be fitted as the wires coming from the splitter travel under a cutout in the tray. once the tray is bolted in the cables don't really fit through.
So fan harness is next.
Cable ties can stay on right until the very end, just in case it has to come out again.

Front roof fan has the Tach signal wire, the yellow connector splits the single PWM wire into 3, 1 for each Vardar F3 fan.



To help keep the harness in place the front cover was put on as the 2 side clips sort of lock the harness in place on the way up.









The Prodigy top cover completely hides those Rainbow wires on the Vardars biggrin.gif

Motherboard Tray bolted in.
To avoid bending the 24 pin cable out of shape it was put through the new pas-through before putting the tray into the case.
The tray was pop-riveted to the frame as stock, BUT I tapped 5 of the holes for short M4 bolts to secure the tray in place, 2 at the rear and 3 underneath.

I love how OCD you are even on a 'casual' rebuild lol

Subbed x 1 billion. I am digging the cable management. So much to try and understand. So much to steal / borrow. thumb.gif

Let me see if I have this right ... re your fan harness ...
pic (Click to show)

... the yellow connector is up the top of the case (just seen in this pic)
pic (Click to show)
1000x2000px-LL-4de697a9_TopFanCableLoom-101.jpeg

... and so the three black connectors (anti-clockwise of the yellow connector) are to / for the fans. Am I right in saying that those connectors are 4-pin fan connectors?

The other end of the harness has 1 4-pin connector (center of pic) and three 3-pin connectors with only 2 wires each (power / neutral) ... and they turn up again in this pic
pic (Click to show)
1000x2000px-LL-9d7fbca8_PSUInstalledwith24pin-101.jpeg

... plugged into your power only fan hub.

Is the above correct? If so ... where does the 4-pin connector that is sticking up in the last pic go?

Yes - I think you followed everything correctly

The 4 pin in the middle goes to a Motherboard fan header for RPM reading and PWM control.

EDIT: the yellow connector up top has a single wire in (PWM) and 3 wires out, PWM splitter - 1 wire to each fan.

EDIT 2: each fans 12V and N wires are in the same sleeve.
PWM wires are sleeved separately, as is the single RPM wire from the front (roof) fan.

Mobo bolted down and 1st hard-line from Pump Out to Front Rad fitted.
Drain assembly is installed on the pump out line.

As mentioned in the OP, some 2nd hand, mis-matched and/or "bargain" parts are being utilized and this is pretty evident with the blocks being used.
Mis-matching to the extreme on the mobo tongue.gif
Lime Green Fittings and Pink tubing is not a color combo I re-call seeing before.
Wasn't 100% sure that it would work, BUT I think it does.

Thanks for the feedback. Time to go and look at my rats nest and see what I can do about that.

I sleeve all of my fan wires in one go ... fan wires can be stupidly thin and I don't really see the point in separate sleeving ... just ends up adding clutter. Unless those wires need to go separate places ... then I can understand separate sleeving.

Green and pink ... sounds shocking ... but looks ... ok. Reminds me of candy crush for some reason.

CPU 2 GPU line installed and res screwed in ready for return line from the GPU.

GPU is a little old 7770 with a Bykski Y-NAR-X multi-purpose half cover block.







Reservoir is a Barrow Acrylic 98mm x 65mm
