Hello All,

so far all i have done is put the cpu into the board


Couldn't deal with the custom PSU 24 pin layout coming out of Corsair AX850. Purchased Silverstone.

Hey, I have a TH10 and am planning on using much of the same aquacomputer gear. I will be interested in seeing what you do with it.

You should send your A-5 faceplate to Jim and have him powdercoat it for you, that's what I did.



The Aqua rads are very restrictive, so you will have crank the D-5's. Good luck and nice gear, especially the case.thumb.gif

Spent this afternoon painting the faceplate of the Bluray, A5 and a 3.5 bay Akasa multi card carder/usb 3.0.
The A5 is being stubborn, had to resand and doing 2nd try now.

May have to send to Jim at CaseLabs.

Just got my Canon t4i back yesterday; will post pictures once the paint has dried.

Aquaero 5 ; can't get it to fit in 5.25 bay of STH10. I am obviously doing something wrong since so many have installed this on STH10; so if you have STH10 with Aquaero 5, let me know what I am doing wrong.

theseekeroffun is going to help me tomorrow...In the mean time here's the issue.

It looks like Aquaero 5 (LT and XT) are approx. 148MM wide:

And on STH10 case..can't get it to fit ...note left side in photograph - it's off by 1-2 mm...sigh

Posting pictures of new parts that arrived..
monsoon fittings:

Aquacomputer Flowmeter USB:

the top part of Blu Ray painted white:
IMG_0037

IMG_0038

turned out well...especially with Matte coating on that..it feels nice.

Updated first post with new dates for Aquacomputer D5 (9/6) and its adaptor (9/14) for Aqualis. This delay from Aquacomputer would put me out of reach for any RMA's with the entire NewEgg order.

Also getting new Powersupply from EVGA the Supernova....Lost like $100 in just restocking fees with 2 returns on PSU's ..sigh....But hey I am down to one PSU and it definitely seems better.
