want to use an old PC case for a water cooling set up but am stuck
I came up with this idea ( then later discovered that my idea wasn't as original as I thought it would be lol )with an old case but I couldn't figure out how you
P.S. It will avoid the waranty of your PSU
If I understand whell you want to use and old PC Case to host the WC and use the power supply of this old PC case to power the pump.
I have something like that I split the green wire from my main pc and plug a wire on it I do the same with the black at the side of the green ( the one betwen the green and the blue ) , I do the same with the power supply of the other case and plug the black with the black and the green with the green , so when I power the main PC I also power the old case
Thermaltake have a special connector for use with the extra power supply sold for the ITX , I'm not sure they will sold it separatly.
I can send you a pics if you want of my setup
If you're wondering how to setup an AC pump to turn on when the computer turns on, this thread might be worth looking at.
Basically, you're allowing the PSU turn on normally, but using a bit of the power it makes to switch a relay, which then turns the AC pump on.
here a link to the pic

actually I just install temporary the thermaltake adaptor to a scrap board. but my setup on my train layout server is the same, I just split the rire, the purple one is not use at all.
