    Watching this case come together makes me want to buy a break (brake?) so I can fold stuff and make boxes.

    You seem to have lost the 24 pin socket.

    Gotta be more careful where you leave things.;)

    Now there's a thought.

    You mb would look so much cleaner if all the connectors were underneath.

    Then instead of having a solid mb tray, just have a frame for mounting the mb to, and the rest open to access connectors.

    LOL, you have to reverse the wires in the plug (basically just switch the 2 rows of 12), but since I hand wire all my stuff its no biggie..

    Could you imagine the smoke on a $250 mobo if I forget to reverse them:eek:

    Or the look on the face of the guy at Newegg if I tried to RMA it

    It looks like you would have to reverse all the cables on your powersupply.

    Edit, just saw your post. Oh yeah if an unknowing person just plugged it in they would be rather confused by the resulting fireworks.

    It would be worth the effort though. The essence of cable management.

    nice mark! do you know, Langer at XS is doing something even more extreme than that, he is gonna solder the wires directly behind the mobo. pretty sick!

    You might have to dig around a lil bit, but I'm pretty sure Mark has already pulled that one off. hehe

    Interesting MK. Just another idea:

    Removing the connector totally. Then using a 24pin extension soldering it to the backside so you wont have to mod your psu.

    wait why would you have to mod anything? i know its reversed on that back of the mobo but all youll need to do is rotate the conector and it will be fine...right?

    I was trying to help him and he kept insisting after spend $3K in tools it couldnt be done.

    the male end (from the PS) would be reversed when the female plug (mobo plug) is flipped.
    The only way to remove the asus one was to cut it in half (destroying it) The nice white 24 pin plug is one I removed from a dead mobo by using a heatgun (to keep it in 1 piece) The prob with a heatgun is all the other devices around the 24 pin plug also have a tendency to fall out.

    Interesting MK. Just another idea:
    Removing the connector totally. Then using a 24pin extension soldering it to the backside so you wont have to mod your psu.
    That is what I usually do (simpler = Better) but he kept insisting it couldnt be done

    LOL, If you knew all the probs I had with photobucket.. I have to re do my comp today (format) but after I will be transferring the picts to TPUs thing so they will be safe here
