i am just going to run my own circuits so much cheaper, think at the same time i will run wired network as well through out my house, my biggest prob is i need to find out what my house wiring is rated for ( the supply wiring ) i am hoping i can upgrade to a 200 or 250w meter ( currently 125 ) not that i need it, but that would mean i can get a ciruit breaker panel with more spots in it i dont need to i can just run a slave but i think it is cleaner with only one, besides that i want to move it from its current location tbh
haha i was just going to bring this up, i work with 460/480v, you have not been hit till you touch that ( it is 3 phase ) the single phase of that ( to ground ) is 277 which is the worst, because 460 will throw you ( literally ) off 277 bites and does not let go ( you will hold on to it )

at my old work we had a chiller that used line voltage from the street ( iirc it is somewhere ~ 7800v ) but dont quote me directly on that, as that was the only peice of equip that we had with that voltage, you did read that right, thousand volts ~~
you can use 110/115/120v plugs on 220 NP but you just wont be to code, however 99% of all modern electronics are fine with 220/110
i have so many plugs plugged in, but truth is simple, assuming your electrician did everything to code, and people are not idiots, it is impossible to start a fire with electricity, usually the problem is the latter, and people dont change out sockets when they get loose,

long before you start a fire your CB will pop,

also with the low amp pull of newer electronics it really is not a problem in most modern homes, i mean for example in my bedroom i have liek 10 usb chargers they dont even pull .1 a tvs, sterios all pull so little amps anymore, as long as it does not have a large fan it is come a long way, the exceptions are vacuums, microwaves, dryers, stoves

Agreed, I got bit and held by a 277 circuit because the breaker wasn't locked out when the property owner came back and flipped it on. If it weren't for my ladder coming out from beneath me, I'd be toast!

The trade is likely to happen on Saturday, he is going to send me tonight a list of parts for sale including a 140.9 Mo.Ra Pro and a Black Ice SR1 560 for real cheap. So far so good!

Now if only Haswell-E released soon I could finish up both builds. Till then it looks like it will be massive overkill case + massive overkill cooling for my 4770k + dual KPEs.

So now I've entered the waiting game

1 x MAGNUM T10 Case
(Case Color: Black 5-7 business days for processing, ATX Layout: Standard, Motherboard side door: XL Window Clear ($20.00), PSU side door: Ventilated, Top Cover: Standard Ventilated, Power and Reset Switch: Standard Power/Reset Switches with Sleeved Cables , I/O Panel: None, PCI Backplate: Hex Mesh, HDD Cage Type: Flex-Bay 120 x 25mm fan (MAC-102), Flex-Bay Covers: Ventilated ($10.00))
1 x PSU Support Mount - Magnum
(Color: Black (1-3 business days for processing), Orientation: Standard)
1 x 120.3 Flex-Bay Radiator Mount
(Color: Black (1-3 business days for processing))
1 x Flex-bay 5.25 Device Mount - Short Nonconforming
(Color: Black (1-3 business days for processing))

Moving from the XSPC RX360 v2 and XSPC RX240 v1 to

Alphacool UT60 120.3 x 3

Slowly my original XSPC ax240 kit (which started my addiction) is slowly disappearing, sold the ax240 long time ago for the RX rad's, now I've got someone at work already picking up my Switch 810 and the two RX rad's. Sold the original XSPC bay a while back, replaced with XSPC dual bay which one of my mcp35x pump's burned up and while removing, the XSPC was such a pain, I broke it to remove the pump, moving to Koolance 5 1/4 reservoir to mount my two mcp35x pumps.

Last thing to replaced the XSPC Raystorm cpu water block (or might stick with it, not too bad looking and easy to use). Thinking about EK cpu block since I have EK water block for 780 TI classy, Alphacool's don't look bad, thought about those as my rad's are now Alpha's, Koolance cpu water block is a little out there for me but I really like the quality of there reservoirs, not too much on that Aquacomputer's block aesthetics.

Oh, I have a mound of XSPC low profile compression fittings which to this date have been my favorite. Won't get rid of those until I go acrylic.

Congrats on your new case, i just noticed that you bought the hdd flex bay mount + the 120.3 rad monnt + a 5.25 short mount, are you going to mount all of that on the mobo side?
post #5355 of 22176
thinking I'm going to mount both 360's on the top and then a 360 in the flex bay, so, one 360 on the psu side and two on the motherboard side, routing cooling lines back and forth between the two.

Short flex bay for the Aquaero 6 which I'm assuming will be on the motherboard side along with the Koolance RP-401X2. Don''t think I'll mount the cd-rom, so, 360 has 9 bay's, two bays fro the Aqua and Kool, then two spare bays.

Only one hard drive, WD Raptor 1tb, 480 msata on the motherboard for boot drive. MSI mpower board. So the hard drive cage will have one of four slots used.

Corsair AX850 psu.

Think that sums it up.

I finally ordered my Caselabs Mercury S3! In it I will be doing my first ever water cooled build, my first ever rigid acrylic bending, my first ever custom length single-sleeved PSU cables, and my first case mod (Going to put a slim 240 radiator in the HDD bay, as seen before by Shadow_Foxx). I can't wait to get back to the US and start!

"Order Date: 8th Mar 2014
This order is marked as Awaiting Fulfillment
The outstanding balance of your order is
Here's how to pay for your order:

Your Order Contains:
◦1 x Mercury S3 Case
(Case Color: Black 5-7 business days for processing, Top Chassis Mount: Drop-in Style with 120.2 mount ($15.95), Rear Fan Mount: 120mm/140mm Hex-Mesh, Top Cover Options: 36mm Ext Ventilated ($20.00), Left Door Options: Standard Window with Ventilation $15.00, Right Door Options: Std Window (Clear) $10.00, Power and Reset Switch: Standard Power/Reset Switches with Sleeved Cables , I/O Options: None, Flex-Bay Options: 120.2 Fan/Radiator Mount ($20.00) )
◦1 x S3 Stealth SSD Mount
(Color: Black (1-3 business days for processing))"


I'll probably do a build log (also my first). I know there are already plenty of S3 build logs, but I just love reading them and i'm sure there are other people like me who enjoy reading tons of build logs for the case they're going to build in.

i'm just asking becasuse the rad mount uses 9 bays + the hdd cage uses 3 = 12 bays, so you will have one spare bay.

Correct me if I'm wrong as I've only seen pictures. Isn't the flex bays on the motherboard side and doesn't the flex bay radiator mount go on the motherboard side? From the description, it says 13 flex bays, so my guess was that leaves 4 bays, two for mount reservoir and Aqua. On the power supply side, it has the had drive case for my lonely one HD, one radiator and power supply. Am I missing the big picture?

you can mount the hdd on the psu side but you selected the hdd for the flex-bay, the difference between the standard hdd and the flex-bay hdd is the fan mount, or maybe I read wrong
