    Just a little update today. I had a package come through from Nils I ordered earlier in the week. As usual in good time and as always the little touches that make MDPC. Here goes.

    Some more black sleeving, just to finish off a few more cables and replace ones that weren't long enough. And as always, a little sample from Nils, some crazy neon looking orange and very nice pale blue colour. And as always, Nils epic package drawings... I love this dude! :D

    I also ordered a pair of pat 4-pin Molex. The plan is to use as little Molex as possible, they are big, bulky and ugly, but anyway, I only need a few, one for the pump and I can make them custom lengths from the PSU and replace the transparent red ones that came with the PSU.

    A few more female ATX pins

    I feel like a cheat! :blush: I'll be using Nils pre-cut 15mm lenghts of 4:1 shrink tubing. I had a go with 2:1 tubing and I just doesn't work (non MDPC stuff) and it just bunched up when pushed into the terminals. Anyway...

    [​IMG]

    And heres a shot of it all together... why not?! :S

    I also stripped down my 560ti and put some new thermal grease on the GPU, my idles temps are 2 degrees lower and load is 4 degrees lower.

    Thanks for looking as always! :)

    Sleeving/ shrink tubing update

    Sup yo, just a little update tonight, I've done some sleeving, with mediocre results. I am happy (ish) with it, not too bad for my first try I don't reckon, but deffo not the worst I've seen.... :O But first off, I managed to get some strategically placed holes for tightening down the rad on the floor....

    I said it before and I'll say it again, there is nothing wrong with the sleeving, it looks awesome.

    Its been too long since I've posted something here, I'm sorry! I've been starting the MAMMOTH and I mean it, task of getting the anodizing off...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I've spent about 7-8 hours to get the outside of the panels nearly done, I've not even started on the inside of them yet. The hard anodizing on them is very tough.

    I've thought up of a neat and uncluttered way of mounting the SSD (s) and HDD (which will be done soon).

    [​IMG]

    I will mount this bracket underneath the 5 1/4" drive bay.

    Just an FYI, I do a lot of anodizing and I have had to remove it sometimes. Lye will remove anodize. Be very careful with lye as it will easily leave a chemical burn if you get it on your skin, but it does remove the anodize quite easily. Leave it in the lye solution and check it every 5 minutes or so because it will begin to etch the aluminum if it is in their too long.

    It looks like you've already removed most of the anodize so I would advise against using lye for those bare aluminum pieces as it will eat the aluminum rather quickly. For other parts that you haven't sanded, it will work well.

    Sweet so far :)

    I like the look of those Enermax fans, but the CF on them just takes them to the next level :)

    Nothing much, just been thinking 'bout shrinkless sleeving and I love how much more sleeker and sexy it looks so I gave it a shot, I'm going to rip off all the shrink tube off the sleeving I've done so far an do it like this...

    I just prefer it without it, looks much smoother a tidier, only because I'm not up to par with it I suppose. When others do it when all the shrink tubing is done in the same length it looks epic, so much time and patience goes into it.
