Was busy the whole weekend, and looking forward for my Caselabs STH10 arrival.

It finally arrives yesterday evening.


Rushed home like a young boy to open his present. When got home, I saw the package lying at the doorstep. Freaking huge package.

Opened the package and found out something amiss....

Some of the parts that I had ordered separately are all in white instead of black.

I had custom the black and white colors, Exterior all white except for flexbays are all black.

Interior wise, all black.

The parts that I ordered all came in white,

- HDD Cage
- Short 5.25 Adjustable mounts X 3
- 480 Radiator Stand X 2


Even the 4 sets of 5.25 mounts are white too....

Worst case is, the HDD cage is bent!

I had yet to fix them up and yet so many issues. So discouraging.....

So I sent them email notifying them about this issue and hope they could give me a solution...

As I need to drill some holes for reservoir mounting, I cannot fix up the whole case yet.

So visually, I see no errors or faults on the casing so I am hoping nothing goes wrong with the panels.

In order to be able to fix up the case, I will need to get the Chassis Divider holes to be done. I had no confidence in getting it done without scratches onto the case so I had to send it down to MOPC today.

At MOPC, all thanks to Kenclass he had helped to give me more ideas in my built include the mounting of holes.

Instead of just drilling 2 X M3 Holes for the reservoir clips, Kenclass suggested me to drill G 1/4 holes instead.

In total 3 X G1/4 holes were drilled which I will further explain the use of them later.

As for now, I am waiting for the replies of Caselabs and hope they can help to resolve the issue by replacing the parts...

I am expecting a few shipments in the upcoming weeks when includes,

- 2 - 3 Koolance QDC,
- 40m of Red Sleeves
- 20m of Grey Sleeves
- 30m of White Sleeves
- 20m of Orange Sleeves
- PCI E Connectors (Red)
- Cable management clips
- PCI E Extension cables (80CM) X 4
- 1M LED Strips (White) X 2
- 3PIN Fan Cable (80CM) X 2
- Enermax Magmas X 4
- Heat Shrinks (Red/Black/White)
- ATX Modding Tools
- 3 Pin Male Connectors (Black)
- Bitspower Fittings (close to $800 of fittings combined with Hianyiaw)
- Demciflex Filters (For Caselabs STH10)

I had also bought additional fans recently.

5 X Enermax Magmas
1 X Corsair Airflow Ram Cooler

The ram cooler is to be used with my row of 3 Aquacomputer PowerAdjust 2 USBs. As there are no aircooling solution for the Poweradjusts so I intend to use the ram cooler to cool them.

In total now which includes my incoming orders of 4 X Enermax Magmas, I have the following number of fans.

- 12 X Enermax Magmas
- 11 X Gentle Typhoons.
- 01 X Corsair Airflow

I am intending to do Push and Pull for my 360 Front Flex Bay radiator, and Pull config for both rads at the bottom.

Fans Config
6 Magmas - 360 XTX Radiator (Flexbay - Push and Pull)
4 GTs - 480 Monsta (Btm Chamber - Pull)
3 GTs - 360 Monsta (Btm Chamber - Pull)
1 GT - Rear Exhaust
3 GTs/ Magmas Top Intake

I will have a total of 6 spare fans GTs/ Magmas which I will decide again when I gotten hold of the Monsta Rads. I am still hoping I could do a push and pull config for both the Monstas.

Spent a total on 3.5 hours just to fix up the STH10. Took my time as I dont wish the screw driver to go flying and scratch the case.

Fixed up the Main Frame of the STH10, Its MASSIVE



After fixing it up, I started to plan for the relocation and placement of the HDD cage and 5.25 inch bays.

Completed STH10

Been buying all the stuffs required by this Project Rampage II for the past 3 weeks.

My orders from Demciflex had finally arrive today, and expecting for my Bitspower fittings to arrive today as well.

Been lurking at Tao Bao and hooting lots of modding stuffs there. It is modder's heaven there as they have lots and lots of items over there for modders.

I am just hoping that the quality of the sleeves to be on par with MDPC.

I had decided to hoot another Aquaero 5. I bought this off from a bro in VR Forum which he said he had no use for his Aquaero 5 XT. So I gladly told him I could have made full use of it.


Collected from him and found out that it came with black faceplate and also waterblock which is very sweet deal for me.

I also bought 1 X Poweradjust 2 USB, 1 X Aquaero 5 Waterblock and also some additional cheap phobya stop fittings and dual G1/4 transfer adapters which collected from Bro Inoran.

Right now I have dual Aquaero 5 with 3 X Poweradjust (Might hoot two more Poweradjust)


Some might comment that AQ6 is coming soon in Oct. But since I had bought AQ5 Pro and 3 X Poweradjust and their accessories, I dont wish to waste my time and money to puchase the AQ6 which I think will easily hit $300 for the highest end model.

I might be running both if the AQ5 Pro and AQ5 XT independently since I wont be utilizing the USB 2 ports anyway. I am not sure if its possible but I will tryout soon to test the working condition of the newly bought AQ5 XT.

I might be customizing the Triple Bay flex bay panels in order to hold the 5 X Poweradjusts (if I were to buy over the 2 X Poweradjusts) as the color of the mounting bay for Poweradjusts seems to have a ligher shade of black comparing to the rest of the faceplate of my STH10 and the Aquaero 5.

Yes Bro, Top chamber is intended for PSU, HDD, SSD, 5.25 bay devices. and my Poweradjusts.

Today just gotten two more Poweradjusts 2 Ultra. Now in total I have 5 Poweradjusts 2, 3 X Poweradjusts 2 USB amd 2 X Poweradjusts 2 Ultra.

Aquacomputers Poweradjust 2 Ultra


As the top chamber 5.25 bay I can only utilize 3 slots, I am planning two bays to be use for my Aquaero 5 XT and Pro, one bay will be using it either for my Poweradjusts Mounting Bays or my DVD drive.

The Poweradjusts 2 Mounting Kit can only mount 3 X Poweradjusts, I will have to find ways to mount the other two Poweradjusts 2 Ultras.

My options are as followed

- Remove the PA Mounting Kit and drill 6 X 4 Holes onto the 2 Slot Flex Bay slots/ Fan hole plates to secure all of them onto the interior of the Top Chamber

- Create a mounting plate for 2 X Poweradjust 2 using acrylic (Easier to create and cut) and mount them at Top Chamber.

can use the long bay of caselab, the one for dvd rom usually to mount the 3x pa2 with bay then another 2x pa2 on the long bay's tail by drilling holes onto it since its gonna be in the top chamber away from sight.
