^^^ thanks! yea i get a bit pissy when i see these sponsored monster rigs with gold linings and advertisement everywhere.... to me a computer/rig is simple, something that meets a purpose and looks like a pc. some mods look like theyre made to put in a glass case and stay there, not to get used or touched. not to mention most people cant afford! and a mod should be like making something, like back when you was a kid and put time/effort in to something you done in I.T at school. @nleksan im based in the UK and its difficult to source modding stuff you mention, especially when on a tight budget. i spent about £50 on everything, and like you said about tools. i broke 3 pin removal tools. (pulse modding and phobya) ive seen the sleeving you mentioned, paracord. if i can find some here, i will use it for my next mod. this stuff tended to melt easy, bunch up (hence the heatshrink on the sata power). next i will make my own cables, ive learnt that pulling these apart they break often. and i was going to do make the cables all a single colour, with taping them but wanted something with different shades. hence the black. temps are great @stock prime for an hour 39*c max. for my first mod, im pretty proud tbh. and TPU and the people here inspired me to do it! thanks!
