This is my latest creation.
Nice clean setup , is that a Asus Rampage mobo by any chance?
Sweet rig!! Job well done on Project Crimson.
I love this build. The black and red is common but you did it well.
I'm loving the colour scheme. And the cable management is just godly.
look at the first pic
Amazing job on the sleeving and cable management. I bet that took lots of time and patience.
Yeah I keep thinking I'm going to sleeve my workstations and then I look at a perfect sleeving job like this and just shake my head and get reallllyy lazy.
It takes a bit of time to do correctly. If you have a nice PSU like a Silverstone
strider it helps make it easier. From what I understand the Corsair modulars
are hard to work with. If you want some pointers just let me know.
I would love to know what parts and tools you went with in particular. I'm willing to purchase a new PSU and replace my current XFX one to sleeve with. I'll just pop the XFX one in another computer.
I just want to go all black with my sleeving though. I have my eye on this PSU now: SILVERSTONE Strider Gold ST1200-G 1200W ATX 12V v2... . I've heard so many great things about silverstone psu's and never actually used one myself. I've always went with antec/corsair, and more recently XFX/seasonic. My XFX is not fully modular. I'm guessing fully modular would be easy with the right sleeving kit. I could even go the cheater way and buy sleeved extensions, but I'd like to do it for real just to learn the right way.
I would kind of like to do a 100% all black build in my Antec 1200 case. I've been wanting to mod it up for a while...
Get your sleeve and tools here.

This guys is in Germany but don't be deterred. He has the best sleeve. And it only takes
a week to 10 days to receive your goodies.
Oh I'm definitely going to buy a bunch of stuff here. I have my eyes all over the sleeving. It looks fantastic. I want to sleeve everything. I'll have to dedicate a weekend to modding my 1200 this summer. I haven't had time to sit down and really work on any of my machines in a long time due to my business.
I might be PM'ing you for help later on. Yours looks so amazing. Thanks for the tips man.
Nils over at MDPC-X is great. He will even give you directions on the ins and outs of
