Overkill NAS and Gaming Rigs

My project to try to reduce the noise that my setup was generating along with the heat.

I went with the enthoo elite as I wanted a single loop with an external rad which covers both systems. I’m running unraid on the main board along with the Harddrives etc and then on the smaller DTX board I’m running a Win10 gaming rig.

I will freely admit to having not gone into detail on cable management nor hose management and the hose management is because I want to be able to disconnect one system from the loop whilst letting the other system run.

I have yet to figure out how to sort out the relays from the Aquaero so that both systems will shut down in case of an alarm. I tried wiring them up to the same relay but I couldn’t get it to work so if anyone has any thoughts I’d really appreciate it.

Equally I’d love to be able to power the loop on its own so if anyone have any ideas I’m all ears.

I wouldn’t say it is finished as I still want to add some more bits and pieces to it but at least it’s all up and running after taking me weeks to put together and buying more and more fittings etc.
