    Help Needed with APC UPS

    If you unplug from the wall under load and it just shuts down even with a light load like a 40W bulb then your first probable cause would be a bad battery. Use a simple resistive load like a light bulb or basic soldering iron.

    Oh that's not bad at all, the ION units are quite resonable for the size, pump is of unknown orgin as it's of their own creation but overall performance of it isn't horrible for being so small. http://thermalbench.com/2016/03/03/xspc-ion-pumpreservoir/3/ If you plan to do a blackout build if everything is done right they can look super nice.

    If you want a minature D5 pump combo unit XSPC makes a real sweet one. http://www.xs-pc.com/reservoirs/d5-tank-reservoir-v3

    You can put it into a power bar if you are worried and cut the power that way, either works perfectly fine but if you press the button it will cut out the whole unit inducing the battery.

    If you have the space a DDC would be a better selection in terms of performance, however it would be almost double to triple the size of this pump.

    You don't press the button that cuts power to everything, you pull the plug physically at the wall to test the unit or run the self test in the software. As for the battery if it's used for and unknown amount of time and will not sustain power I would replace it, even if the software says it's fine it's under load where it counts as it can show an adequate idle voltage but fail even under a small load.

    Did you have a power outage or brown out when this occurred? Usually the overcurrent protection will not kick in on regular use when plugged into the wall only when during battery backup. If so it sounds like your unit's battery has reached the end of it's lifespan as it was previously used for an unknown amount of time and will require a replacement

    Here is a review of it in german, from what I recall when looking into the pump when it first debuted it's nice and small but not overly powerful for what it is. https://www.review-center.de/wasserkuehlung/444-david-gegen-goliath-alphacool-dc-lt-vs-laing-d5.html

    Overall that shouldn't use too much power at all and that UPS should be able to power 360W. I assume you replaced the unit's battery with a new one as it didn't come with one originally.

    What are your system and NAS specs, also drop a link to the unit you have on hand as 600VA doesn't tell us much.
  11. Yes but check under the compatibility list for your specific model of the Focus Plus series. https://cablemod.com/compatibility/

    Angled SATA cables

    Your best bet are slim line sata cables like the ones from silverstone. https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=445&area=en

    Led light strip help

    What you require is the SMD5050 type LED's for RGB based control unless you want a constant rainbow effect of RGB lights. https://www.amazon.com/SUPERNIGHT-Waterproof-300LEDs-Changing-Flexible/dp/B00DTOAWZ2/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1542431617&sr=8-4 As for your board as long as it has the standard 4 pin analog RGB header it will work, just note the amperage it can supply as a full 5M roll will not work in a single header and overload it.
  14. The waterblocks, pumps and everything will all use the standard G1/4" thread as for the tube and fitting size as long as the OD of the tubing and ID of the hardline compression fitting match they will be compatible. For example this: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hdc-fitting-16mm-g1-4-black-6344 https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hd-petg-tube-12-16mm-500mm-2pcs
  15. That’s ones not a problem the parts that make contact with the fluid are all copper based.
