Gracias a todos los sponsors por colaborar en el proyecto.
Many thanks to all the sponsors for the support given to this project
Thank you guys!
Update for you!
First test with radiators in the bottom section of the Little Devil
There is a lot of space down there... Enough for paralel 19/13 tubing
Taking measurements and starting the work
Just want to keep about 8cm of fan cable!
White tape to get a much pleasent sleeving result
Sleeved and with half heatshrink!
Because of the sleeving we need to cut plastic so the cable will sit on its place
Just need to cover the fan PCB... soon!
Stage 1 complete!
Stage 2 begins!.
The reason to do the sleeving this way is to keep the fans easy to remove and change in the future. If I just solder all the fans together in series it would be a pain where_you_know to remove or change fans or any other stuff fan related, that's why I created that custom splitter!
Couple of hours after, sleeved splitter!
Finally a connector detail, might remove the extra heathrink with a sharp blade so you will not see that extra shrink
Very handy and tidy!
I like it alot!
great work mate keep it up
Thank you both
Working on the 2nd radiator right now, will post pictures when finished and then will start to sleeve the last radiator
I would like to introduce you IZAR MICRO , they are my new sponsor!
They helped me a lot since day 1, many thanks to Jon.
Will upload some updates later!
Another small update, just finished sleeving the 2nd radiator, just one more to go
I began this one in the morning...
Finished at night
(I spent 8 hours at work aswell so was quite good )
Woah, great job! That looks very neat and tidy!
keep up the good work mate
Tonight I will finish the last radiator (hopefully!) and will post pictures
After that will plan the front fan sleeving and other stuff that needs to be sleeved
Nice work, Could you post some closeups of the ends of the wires? Wondering what you are doing with those. Fairly new to that stuff, hence the question.
Mod overall looking really good!
Sure have a look:
As you can see I've soldered the positive and negative of each fan in series, that is why I had to make my own splitter of desired length, everything looks much better now
Nice, looks good indeed. Cant wait to see what you turn out with!
Thank you Martininho
Today I recieved something that I did not expect to get so fast...
And finally a making-off shot from the "sleeving nights"
Will have to wait before I can show some progress, need to wait for some stuff but before that I will keep planing and routing things
Have a nice weekend..
Long time since my last update... I was waiting for some tools and still waiting for my Aquaero 5 so I can finish all the connections (need to measure all the wire lengths depending on the AQ5 final placement)
While waiting I decided to do some wiring of the Power Adjust 2, still need to connect the Aquabus in series, I'm waiting for some black pins
Black screws and black PA2 faceplate...
Black MOLEX connector and pins!
Will get rid of the ULTRA stickers soon, don't worry.
Custom length cables are great but a pain to measure and make them look good hehe. 12V power in series for all PA2
Detail of the final molex connector that will "feed" them
Not going to sleeve any of the PA2 connections since I think they look great with white cable.
Soon more to come!
This is really fantastic xSoMBrAx I totally agree that the white cables look great just the way they are
Much appreciated Editor22... I've seen your work and it's amazing, the renders and the custom acrylic work... I'm sending you a PM right now!
I thought that I had no 3 pin connectors but I managed to find some so I could link the Aquabus lines from the PA2
Pins and connectors
My tools for my custom length wires... really need to get some good wire stripper to have all with exactly the same length, that could improve the results even more. Knipex maybe?
Aquaero 5 XT is on it's way as I said yesterday, still need to make 1 more custom connector that will link all the PA2 with AQ5 and make them work as one pice of hardware
