  1. Hahah fear not, I have a duplicate piece of aluminium and a new set of hole cutting drill bits- version 2 will be much more professional
  2. Hi everyone, small update! I've remade the PCB cables by cutting them off completely and soldering new lengths then sleeved the lot as one cable. Lots of extra length on the cables so I can cut them to the right length when I know the measurements. Next up, a quick recap- I'm building a mount for all this Aquacomputer stuff to stop the spaghetti mayhem. This was the design. I've bought a piece of 3mm aluminium cut to fit 5.25" bays, and some of this mounting hardware. Blu-tack'd the bits t
  3. Good luck. I can't imagine the stock will be too bad for much longer, by the end of the month things should be more stable!
  4. @Bastiaan_NL I found a million different JST plugs but I never saw the SJN variety- which is exactly what it is. I'm going to get you on a tech support retainer =D I've started to cut & solder the cables, so it will all be fine in the end, just a bit more faff. Cheers
  5. @Bastiaan_NL No luck with the PCB de-pinning. I can lift the white tab but it refuses to come out I'm not sure what's stopping it but I cant see how its connected to the PCB. Might be soldered onto the pin? Either way I think ill have to either de-solder the connector off the PCB or cut and solder the cables. Bugger! Any suggestions?
  6. I can't wait either- I still need to buy the hardware & the watercooling stuff. Trying to be sensible and wait until black friday, see if there's anything good on offer. Still waiting to see what the Heatkiller IV for the 3080 looks like. -And there's no chance of getting a 3080 anytime soon - and I'm waiting for the 6800 benchmarks! All this waiting is killing me hah I've built a couple of PCs in the Silverstone SG05 for people. Love that case. It looks hilariously small next to the TJ07! I had a photo of them somewhere but I can't find it.... Get that server bu
  7. A tiny bit of actual IRL modding today. =D Note: A friend mentioned the pics could be bigger, so I'm upping the resolution. Enjoy! The TJ07 has the power button and status LED's mounted on this little PCB on the front of the case. A popular mod is to encase this in a little box so it looks all neat & tidy, so that's what I'm doing today. Looks like I was lazy and only mounted it with 2 at some point in the past.... Standoffs/Power button hole. The PCB off the case. A lot of people replace
  8. She is a beauty. Thanks! It forced me to go back and look at old designs with fresh eyes which is always a good thing.
  9. Took the day off today as it was raining- So I've been playing with my layouts for the lower case section =D I didn't take into account all this Aquaero stuff in my original Sketchup file. I've also got a D5 instead of a DDC, so new pump placements required. The DDC is already really squished in there! I spent a while throwing about the Aquacomputer parts in this section but there's no chance they're going to fit. Design MKII- The D5 is too big to fit in-between the rads, and there needs to be space for the cables to run too. This
  10. If the review benchmarks are as good as these slides, then FINALLY we have solid competition in the market again, everybody's a winner here. 6900XT is looking like a bargain too (comparatively).
  11. It is going to be a lot of sleeving …. probably best I don't understand quite what I've gotten myself into yet! Looking forward to using it. And I haven't started sleeving yet... we shall see how far I get before I do what Bastiaan does and shove em under the radiators
  12. Sure I'll buy the headset, but where am I going to put the server farm to run it?
  13. Another package. These arrived much sooner than I expected! This afternoon I've had a play around with all the Aquacomputer stuff. Sweet holy jeebus. What a total cabling nightmare! One Aquero, one Farbwerk, 3 Splitty4's, 6 Corsair QL120's and a whole load of spaghetti. At least I don't have to cook tonight! Unfortunately, the Farbwerk can only support 90 LED's per channel. As the QL-Series fans have 34 LED's each, this means 2 fans max per channel. I'm having to use one Splitty4 per 2 fans, and I've used one Farbwerk channel for LED Str
  14. I like the fact Linus called them out on it. Its a good card for the price too. Can't wait to see the AMD competition now!
  15. This is a great idea, cheers! Make it so much simpler.
