I keep my rig on my desk too even though it's big. Less dust and easier access to ports and stuffz. tongue.gif

sorry for the cell phone pictures ... but I'm stuck on upgrades 'til I find a new job. Happy with my Arc Midi R2 though.





Need a GPU power extension, ATX extension, some better fans, ... and then I think I'll stop 'til she's antiquated whistle.gif

Hey fellow Fractal Design fans!

I've just completed a Node804 build that i really like. It serves as both a medium powered gaming PC, as well as a large scale home storage system (with 8 4TB drives attached in the other half of the box). One thing i'm not super happy about my build is the cable management. Providing data and power cables to those 8 drives was non trivial, and has led a lot of squished space with poor aesthetics (at least compared to what i'd like them to be).

I've currently ordered some custom PSU-to-SATA power cables for the drive enclosures. They'll be very short cables (since the drives are right above the PSU), with only 1.5 inches between the connectors. This should make powering the drives much cleaner. This is especially helped because i will be able to switch away from three, 3-head PSU cables (which is what comes with the Fractal PSU), to two 4-head cables.

However, there's still the problem of the data cabling to the drives. In my case, because i have a Raid card, i'm looking for a custom cable with the following characteristics:
  1. One is mini-sas 8087.
  2. It should fanout to 4 separate sata data connectors.
  3. Ideally the sata heads should be right-angle-down connectors.
  4. Each individual sata cable should be a different length. 20" for hte longest, then 18.5, then 17, then 15.5 This way the cables can reach just to what they need to, without excess.

Does anyone know of sites out there that make custom sata *data* cables? I've had little luck looking, and i'd love some advice if anyone knows a good company out there that can do this sort of work.

Alternatively, if anyone here has a Node804 that they've filled with HDs, and they think they have some good ideas how to best cable it for a mini-sas Raid card, i'm all ears! I'd love to get some good advice on how to improve things her.e

Thanks!

Here's what the drive section looks like right now:




As you can see, it's very cluttered in there because of the eight sata data cables and the three 3-head sata power cables. With those cleaned up, that area will be much cleaner (not to mention easier to work with, and probably better for airflow).

How are you finding the Aerocool fans? I'm still tossing up between those or Noctua redux
Leaning more towards the Aerocool because i love the look, and on paper they're not much worse then the Noctua and a few dB quieter

Just my daily gaming/folding/crunching rig.

The XFX card is no longer in use as the gpu silicon shattered from constant temp fluctuations (XFX cooler sucked).

This case is massive! 3 x 120mm fans (top), 2 x 140mm fans (front), 1 x 140mm fan (back), 1 x 120mm fan (not in picture(bottom)

Well Fractal proves their amazingness again!

My headphone jack stopped working and they sent me an entirely new front panel for a Define Mini thumb.gif
