    I'm liking that custom shroud chamber for the CPU cooler, It will be interesting to see what temps it yields :thumb:

    WOW - this is really good work, best I've seen, it looks like a cofee machine!! But it really does look amazing, you should start selling custom cases with your skills!

    After a very unexpected delay, life over play-time, I am back to finish my build.

    So I need to make the 8 pin cable. Starting with new wires crimped then sleeve them into the connector and on goes the first epoxy layer.

    [​IMG]

    build it up to desired shape.

    [​IMG]

    stretch the sleeve and repeat on the other connector.

    [​IMG]

    then file to shape and add more epoxy where needed.

    [​IMG]

    then they get painted.

    [​IMG]

    Have a couple more to make, but I will be back. :)

    Yes checked twice with multi-meter before. :)

    Thanks, thought I would try it out, I am pleased with the results. A lot of time to make, but that is the only way sometimes to get what you want. :)

    I meant to pop over to your log as soon as you shown me the excellent looking spotlights picture a few months ago, then meant to again the other day when I noticed the link in your sig, but now finally got over here to comment & subscribe :D.

    Awesome looking project made with great skills, cool method for making angled power connectors too :).

    5 star +rep + looking forward to more :).

    Everything looks great so far...-'cept for the first pic in your last update. I could have lived without that one. It looks too much like you sneezed.

    Thank you Wayne. I am glad to have you here.
    Started on the 24 pin, which turned out well and has taken over the rest that needed a change in direction. :lol:

    Thanks for the star & rep, and more is now.

    Thanks bulldog. :D

    :) maybe where we start is not always pretty. Thanks cheaps. :)

    More is here now. :D Glad your are enjoying.

    Thank you my friend, glad to see you here. :clap:

    Thank you very much. :D


    Update :D

    Front I/O cables have a problem reaching motherboard, because of so little space between tray and PSU.

    [​IMG]

    So made a couple of holes so the cables will be above the PSU. Made 90˚ cable plugs, to give a neat and tidy look.

    [​IMG]

    Now need to finish the other side to connector.

    [​IMG]

    I will be back soon with them finished. :D

    Thanks bro finally have them done.:)

    Thank you happy to inspire. :) I should have made a mold it would have been quicker. :hehe:

    Thanks man, glad you like. Share the experience. :)


    Well have them done. After making a mistake in the hole placement. Was a bit to high, so filed downward then needed to file the USB elbow. The cables were stacked and I needed them side by side, then remade elbow.

    So here they are connected up. :)

    [​IMG]

    The 8 pin connected. :) Man the camera shows every little thing :wallbash: no it's not a real good mirror finish, just a shiny one. :hehe:

    [​IMG]

    Mounted up the SSD only using 1 right now so the other holes are plugged.

    [​IMG]

    Well I have a few things left to do, so back soon. :)
