Top it off for sure than get something to store the excess. It will look a lot better topped off. You made it this far don't half res it.

Lol. I know right. Took me only about 13 months to figure it out smile.gif I have the coolants on hand, but don't know if I should just go ahead and do it. I would probably only use like 1/3 of it.

@IT Diva The "package" looks awesome and the assignable LEDS are a winner in my book thumb.gif
I assume you're running WS2812B strips (or similar, 2813 is new revision)
and
a USB to DMX or some other DMX controller questionmark.gif.
EDIT: Forgot - Arduino for control maybe ??

I'm awaiting delivery of some strips and a few various DMX items to experiment with.
This one I think will be the best of what I have coming, fingers crossed.
Could could fun OR most likely huge headaches to learn the DMX software redface.gif

Can't be too many of these "fresh out of the box" left in the wild.

I used these LED strips for the midplates to keep them as thin as possible, while being solid enough to support pumps and res's, and for the S8S, the exchangers:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019H7L2C6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Rather than spend a crapton of time writing code for an Arduino or a PIC, I just cheaped out and went with these:

https://www.amazon.com/Mokungit-WS2811-DC7-12V-Controller-Effects/dp/B01H3CEZDU/ref=pd_sbs_267_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=N6PP88PV40N4A9T9TBMQ&th=1

They just don't work for squat out of the box though, takes a bit of modding to make them work right, and keep from burning up.

I used the same controllers for the midplate and top panel in one of my X9 builds:

With these LED strips:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019DYZNU0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


Keep us posted on how the DMX foray goes, I kinda took the easy way out on the controller part, until I see how it plays out a bit first.

Intending to install in my S8, so I'll keep the Salive8 log updated as I delve into it.
Along with the board I linked, I've got one of these on the way. Hopefully it will work with newer version of M$ Windows also.



USB, controller board and a splitter hub should be all the hardware required if I did my research right, plus the mixing/programming software.
I briefly tinkered with a free DMX controller software and made an S8 "stage out of rock show/gig light towers ect. Hit a stumbling block adding the LED strips to the chassis "stage" as all the "fixtures" I could find were stage lighting, smoke machines, gas flames ect tongue.gif
More research and tinkering on software needed.
The controller boards are daisy chain-able (like all DMX devices) allowing multiple "DMX universes" to be fired off independently and or simultaneously.
Overkill for PC lighting, but like you, I like the challenge of learning a new skill and that is half the point of giving DMX a go. wink.gif

EDIT: I chose 5050 60 pixels p/m (on sale) strips. Your 1 meter of 144 pixels strip must be pretty power hungry (about 1 amp ??) for that poor little controller tongue.gif

The 144LED/M strips are viciously power hungry, with 3 actual led junctions per "LED", so per pixel, R, B, & G at 20ma each for white, that's 60ma per IC, times 144, or almost 9A per strip from the power supply.

That's one of the controller mods, is to not have the power pass thru the controller PCB, it has to go directly to the strip, and then either back to the controller to power the controller, or power the controller separately from the main power input. The controller itself only needs a few ma.

I have one setup for a work in progress build with 4 of those strips as two parallel strips, each 2 meters long, and just one controller that runs off a dedicated 300W 5V Meanwell power supply, so the controller itself is pretty capable for being so cheap



If you can set it to white, where the power draw is at max, and not have it lock up from Vdrop, or make the wiring heat up, you're good to go.

Using the little controllers like they come out of the package, you're limited to about 30 LEDs, before it all starts going south.

Be aware that if you haven't started playing with them yet, you have to connect the controller to the right end of the strip, the strips should have arrows that point to the far end away from the controller input.

Back on page 1720 i posted a picture of particles that appeared in my front bay res. 2 weeks ago or so i finally got my EVGA 1080 FTW block in the mail and i had time to install it. When i drained the loop i found quite a bit of those fine particles through out my system and i dont really know what it is but my best guess is that its fine sand or something like that. I look like it has scratched all my acrylic parts and i had to change out all the tubing since it had a white tint after this. Funny thing is that i used EK Coolant and all EK parts except from 3 Aquacomputer sensors.

Pictures below

Btw that GPU block is awsome!

Only thing i could think of would be left over material in the rads or something. If you didn't clean em at all when installing that would be my guess. Otherwise ive never seen such a thing in a cooling system, its quite off.
