    No, this is madness!

    THIS IS MADNESS!

    Wow, how about that for a spoiler :p

    Forced myself into toolpathing hell and went about getting the cuts for the PSU done. At this stage of the mod I had hid away the radiators and made the HDD bays presentable so why not give the PSU the same treatment?


    [​IMG]
    Since I had gone with MPDC-X, it wasn't good enough to have it just lying around sprawled all over the place. Sleeving your cables doesnt give you a licence to have bad cable management.


    [​IMG]
    I wasnt prepared to stop there though, every cable would be managed, every cable would have a route to follow and a purpose. I had to go cut a whole set!

    Slowly but surely becoming more efficient with the CNC, multiple cut win.

    The PSU cover was a lot of fun, I even used the side of the panel to etch in my website (very much still in construction).


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    I need to finalise the route the ATX cables will take and once I get the other cables sleeved, ill do some shots of the PSU in the case. The cover is bolted onto the PSU with all the 6 screw points covered with m3 cap screws. I bought a heap of the things for the waterblocks and now they are paying dividends here too. Cap screws are legendary.


    Until this thing is mounted, I will leave you with some compugraphical porn.

    Oh and a big thanks to my sponsors! Lamptron has sent out a very VERY big box of goodies! Did I mention it was big? More on that when it arrives!

    So its been raining and I had some time to sit down and let my fiancee finish all the sleeving :p Kidding, we both worked on getting the sleeving done, lets just say its been tedious, anyone that sits down and enjoys an afternoon of sleeving is not from this planet, we just cant be friends.

    The PSU shield has paid dividends in turning chaos into order :p

    the hell that sleeving is nice!, just one question, that system of connecting the disks to the same energy supply "like in paralell" does not cause anything on the discs?
