Awesome - Everything needed is now said.
Yeah that would be my guess too.
One of my favorite mod at this moment
Update #27 - 18/09/2010
Here is some nylon/polyester dye. I could not find replacement connectors for my Enermax Revo, so I used an idea from a friend called Kai on another forum and dyed them.
You simply put some dye and water in a small saucepan then simmer it for about 15-30 minutes.
Then rinse it under the tap
Here is a comparison - old on the left, dyed on the right. Even the cables go black!
All three together.
This needs some explaining! I could not get the red connectors off the PSU itself. I tried unsoldering, but i don't have a hot enough soldering iron. I tried heatshrinking the connectors to see if it would look good enough, but no matter what i did the red always showed through. Last resort? Dye the whole thing black then wash off the excess! I took the PSU apart then stuck the end of the modular board in the saucepan.
As you can see, it worked
Jump forwards now. No this is not a render, the case is actually powdercoated!
I also bought my 4x Samsung F3 Spinpoint 1TBs.
Redid the 24pin in all black.
Eventually the motherboard backplate will have snap caps on the screws, just like the PSU plate.
I've started doing a little cable management. Going well so far.
Here is the 24pin
The completed power supply. I am VERY happy with it!
I decided to dry fit all the components. Everything is fine, thrown up one problem - my crossfire bridge hits the backplates on the GPUs. Should be able to sand down the connectors on the bridge to fit though. Also the bridge looks really really dodgy. Need to try and remedy that!
I leave you with this
Verry nice, Very clean
Wow dyeing in a saucepan, can't say I've seen that done before, especially the shot with part of the psu in liquid, I trust you know what you're doing though mate , excellent results from it .
Looks brilliant powder coated, perfect looking braiding too , looks fantastic .
Really interesting dye job, it looks great though. The entire build is looking great. I can't wait to see it all together.
Wow nice dye job matey and really clean cable management! Mod on!
WTF is going on round here? a while back 1 bloke was roasting his GPU in the oven, now you go and boil your PSU. Is this a computer modding forum or a cookery club?..
Thats a wicked idea for dyeing the plastic, never seen it done before looks good.
Looks awesome Oli,can't wait to see it all tubed up
Excellent! Nice trick with the dye too
that unneeded RAM block kinda will ruin it i think..
other than that, looks very Cheesecake , loving the white n black
Some guy have the gut to do what their mod need. dying the PSU in the saucepan seems crazy (in a good way) to me.
What next dismounting the mobo to dye PCI-E connector in white and black?
I think i know what i'm doing. Sometimes people say i'm a little though
Mod on brother
Did you not see? This thread is now called 'Cooking with Oli'
Nah i think the ram block will look perfect. It bridges the gap between the CPU and the RAD and it also makes a change to the standard boring Corsair Dominator heatsinks.
Hahaha I wouldn't have the guts to do that to a £300 mobo!
But you did think about it didn't you?
Oh yes of course
