    Hello everyone. Ok what I am trying to do is an interconnect on the back of my case for my Eheim 1048 pump. I am going to use the 110v pump and not the modded one so I can turn it off or just leave it running if I want. I just don't want the cord hanging out of the case if I need to move it. So I want to wire the pump to a connector from the inside and have it so I can plug in a power connector in the back. Same as the power cable on a power supply or along those lines. I found what I was looking for here www.designnotes.com , the problem is I would rather use something better look. I looked sereral places but I am not sure what to look for that in a connector. One place I found was herewww.lemousa.com but again I am not sure if they would work. Thanks for your time and any help that I can great.

    You know I forgot all about the connector, it's better that the power supply connector but still looking for something unique. Thanks for the help. You know the more i look at it the better it gets. I could get one for them for Monster Cable or the like. Thanks.

    You could just hack up the power supply to a mains connecter inside your pc?

    The reason I am doing this is to have the pump independent of the power supply all to gather. Kinda the same way Modsquad is doing in his project. I just want to be able to unplug the pump for the back without the cord hang for the case.

    That's exactly why I did it, glad to report it works perfectly. And with modern thermal protection you don't need to worry about it falling out and your CPU frying :)

    I really am looking for a screw down connector like the one's you see on the Hiper power supply here www.frozencpu.com.

    The connectors on the Hiper PSU are microphone connectors, such as for CB radios and similar, you should be able to search up the usual electronic suppliers in your part of the world for those.

    For your power loopback connector i would just stick with the standard panel mount earthed IEC connectors which should be easy enough to get too.
