Someone likes red...lol. Looks great so far.
since you have money and space, why not buy those extension cables?
how the hell do you cut your fingers???
the quickest way to sleeve is...
1. get a strong string (fishing line will work great)
2. tape the end of the wire (the jack) with masking tape to the string, try to make it a nice cone
3. hold the sleeving as straight as possible, vertically would be best.
4. pass fishing line through the sleeving (which is easy since its hard, and slippery)
5. pull the wire through while keeping the sleeving taught to prevent it from getting caught.
having a friend helps.
incase you use a thin nylon string weigh the other end of the string down with a long needle. then pass it through.
yea its soo passionate, I was just going to spray the outside and got carried away ha!
that's the easy bit, the hard part is getting the connectors apart.
nope. just watch the mnpctech videos. put the tool in, wriggle the pins out. simple.
sleeving almost complete
not sure why the first few aint vivid!
the last pic is what the colours look like.
Looking good so far.
Red racing stripes. Two like they are on race cars. You can then outline the red with a thin line of white to make it pop.
i should give some tips to make this informational.
1. if ya thinking of sleeving...... dont! its a friggin nightmare and takes days on a whole psu!
2. if you do end up sleeving, measure up how much you need (sleeving/heatshrink) and buy loads more on top, im about 40 metres for single cables, and thats not all the modular cables!
3. buy spare connectors and plenty of them, its easy to rip the cable straight out
4. too many hours of pulling on cables will cause damage to your, im a labourer and pick up blocks everyday and the cables ripped skin from my hands.
5. buy spare tools, some cables are tough and need force. my pin removal flew across the room and broke, another time i slipped and broke it.
6. watch the videos and read about it!! do it by the book for best results
7. dont rush!
how about a lucky number??
I did not. I paid good money to have mine done for me...got them off Amazon.com and BAM 5 min later it was done..
tbh i think it costs more sleeving it ya self. ive spent about £40+ so far. and thats including tools.
the only thing i dislike about attached sleeved cables, is that it nearly doubles cable length. and you still have the original cables from the psu. which for cable management is a nightmare.
vrm circuitry cooling!
does anyone know where to buy the rubber edging for the window?
obviously this isnt finished, needs tidying up etc
its called C-channel moulding.
im in the uk........
googles it and found no sites. may go to car places tommorow
I just got done using this stuff and It's the best I've used. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/3035/mol-01/C-Strip_Rubber_Fan_Window_Molding.html
yea i saw your window and thought i wanted it!
i got the perspex sourced just cant find that c strip anywhere in the uk. and car stuff is too big
I think frozen CPU ships to the UK.
even ive bought stuff from frozen CPU
shipping from .de might be cheaper
btw. if u cut/modify the case , painting might be done afterwards
well i wasnt going to touch the sides, but some feline tempted me to do it lol
and yea if i knew i was modding sides, painting would be last
edit: bought c-strip/c-channel/c-edge molding from a uk site, kustom pcs. 70p meter so i'll see what its like soon!
http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/ could be another solution for your needs
you cant see it but the glue stripped some of the paint near the cstrip molding. ive got to do a few touch ups. im still waiting on the perspex.
sleeving is done, time to drill holes for vrm circuitiry cooling mod. and then put it all together.
got to wait to buy a few more things. so its about three-quarters finished.
