hey Ira any way you can post some more pics of the meanwell hooked up? I've read up a little bit and will probably get the crydom relay but I just want to get a good look at the back of the psu and wiring.

thanks

edit: ok I just ordered the relay from ebay D2425 right? thanks again ira
Yup, D2425 is the one. I use 12 guage multi-strand copper, I have used 10 but its a little bit heavier and harder to work with.

I'll try to get you some pic's here in a day or two. I have my MeanWell mounted to my bottom shelf of my bench and I'll have to move a bunch of stuff off it to get it out. I may not be able to get it out with my TEC loop set up. But if nothing else I'll get some of the front and I'll be glad to get some of the back if I can get to it....I'm a slob Man, you wouldn't believe all the crap I have stacked in that bottom shelf the past month or so since I've just been dice'ing and WC'ing....I have a kitchen table as my desk with a really big 3 shelf tech station, a big wall shelf above that with my 480 and some other stuff on it and I barely have room for my key board and mouse....I get cramps in my mouse hand because I only have about a 4" circle of clutter free area to move it around on. The bad part is I'm not exaggerating by much. One reason is because i have a sealed actively cooled 5 gallon bucket res, that thing takes up a lot of room just for it and its cooling loop.

I should be ashamed...

well for wiring the 600W PSU's relay this is what I used and also used Relay Wiring by ira-k and this is the pic that helped me the most

Pic of Crydom relay wiring (too big to just post sorry ira )

other than that check this out for a full overview of how a relay should be wired (this is for the swiftech one) here it is (check on the second page for the relay wiring) but if you use the two guides you will understand I should have a guide up on this soon enough

My idea of wire management is if I don't trip over it when I walk by its very well managed...
