Hi buddy.. you would need extensions from all cables from the front fans and all from the top fans in my opinion.. so 44 extensions? lol. Devbiker on here makes cables up and actually does a 1000d Starter pack but its not aimed at your level lol so doesnt contain enough for your build....

Glad this thread helps bud :).. did you see my FAQ thread?

Woah, well if that's what it takes, it must be done. Already spent £k's on this so a bit extra to make it work will be fine :D.
Do I just search for Devbiker or does he have a store?

That's gonna be a tonne of cables, pwm and rgb. My cable management will probably cause me to go insane :''D.
Thanks for the help

Hey Zotty,

sorry for hijacking your thread, but you've been a great help for me planning my new rig.

Got all the components here so far. But I have a question to the MB installation. I got a Zenith Extreme, but with the 1000d only come 5 MB standoffs. So now I am confused because I don't want to screw up my MB.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Kalorean

I am going to be doing a custom loop in my build with push pull configs on 3 rads... Overkill i know :D

I have hit a few snags though, the fan tray at the top I do need a 4x120mm if I wanna fit it all in and they are all out of stock of course. So I'm delayed again.

Since I'm delayed I came here to learn some more stuff and I'm glad i did. I will also need lots of fan cable extensions and probably another copro (i have 2 already).

I'm going to have 24 fans: 22 ll120s and 2 ll140s
How many fan extensions do you think I'll need :O.

I really hope I don't get bankrupted by this haha :')

Thanks
By your fan count. Push/pull config front and top. You're planning 2 x 140 exhaust in the rear. 2 x 140 will not fit without modification so you know . If you have not measured yet for the thickness of the radiators and fans, be aware I used 2 x 480 MM 45MM radiators on the front and 1 x 420MM radiator on the top and was not able to go push/pull on the front due to the top radiator obstruction. I could have left one fan off the top, but that messes with my OCD.

I use 8 fans per CoPro myself using 2 splitters per unit. I also only needed 2 PWM extensions and used 0 RGB extension cables when I finalized the wiring.

Thanks. Yes, it fits. Just haven't figured out what orientation I should put it. LEDs facing down, facing out, facing up. Going to try changing positions and see what I like best :)

I learned the hard way about the push/pull 420 on the top not fitting so this is why I need the 4x120mm fan tray that seems like it will never be back in stock.
I'm gonna use a 360mm rad on top instead.

Ohh, 2x140 fan don't fit the case? The spec sheet said it should too. Damn that's a freakin shame. Well time to purchase more 120's 😑
Thanks for the heads up 😁

Anytime. Yea, I ordered two extra 140s to put in. Now they sit in a drawer. Put back the 120s.

I'm building a similar one. Need to make some modifications to fit the 420 on top. Do you know how I can take off the top roof of the 1000D (the top glass strip)? I can't see any screws and it doesn't seem it pops off?
