    Looks absolutely amazing. I'm sure all you hard work will pay off in the end.

    Quick question: How will you get the Aquaero 5 to handle 16 fans? I've done the math with mine and it simply doesn't add up. And I'm using the waterblock, which would allow for slightly bigger load than the aircooled heatsink. You're not even using a fan on the heatsink, so...how? :confused:

    Your absolutely right:) You cant win every time:D

    Thanks Nate!

    Haha not a chance with the mod you have going ;)

    Well. I am going to close my eyes and hope for the best :naughty:
    On a more serious note. From what i can gather, the Aquaero 5 can take 1.65 amps per channel, and 5 in total. Thats 20W per channel, or 60W in total. My fans is not going to swallow so much:)

    It will come in buckets!

    Yeah, dont really fancy them either:p

    Thanks man!

    All wires in their place, and ready to some soldering.

    [​IMG]

    After soldering, and all snugged into place. Mind you, this is a TIGHT fit!

    [​IMG]

    And put onto the PSU. Its a bit hard to push onthere, but it is doable.

    [​IMG]

    And put onto the motherboard tray. Also crimped the 8 pin PSU connector. A "hider" for this, like the 24 pin and 6 pins will be made after i get back from berlin. For now, this will have to do.

    [​IMG]

    and from the back.

    I should get a PSU tester tomorrow that coolerkit.dk have been so generous to send along with a few other things. If it dont yell at me, things can be put together!
