This will be a rebuild of my current PC “The One”. The PC was initially housed in Corsair Graphite 760T before moving everything to the Caselabs Mercury S8. My hope is to finish this build as quick as possible as I need a PC to do my application development. My laptop feels very sluggish, thus working on it isn’t fun at all. Considering most of the stuff I do are data related, I need the PC up running asap.

So this is the state of the PC as of Friday.





Currently, this is the state. R5E is long gone. R5E10 taking over.

Thanks guys and welcome onboard.

I just shortened and sleeved the power cables for the two Aquacomputer D5 pump mechnics with USB. Also, I created two short USB cables for the pumps. I have installed them in the EK-D5 Dual TOP. All tested good.

I tested the pump individually connecting one at a time to the Bitspower X-Station Power-Extension I.

I hate molex crimps. Mine kept falling off. I hope yours turn out better than mine did.
