    Hi Everyone,

    First of all, this is in no way a Lian Li/Custom box, just making it as tidy as possible, and when I buy/start a case project, it will be all neat :)

    Well, to start off, I bought some neat little goodies from pccasegear.com, the list includes,
    1x Vantec Cable Sleeving Kit - Green
    1x 12" Cold Cathode Light - UV
    2x 80mm Blue ball bearing Fan
    1x 30cm floppy cable with 2 connectors
    2x Round IDE Cable, 48cm, UV Blue (3 connector)

    Well, a pic of the gear! Drool over the cheapness ahah

    The Case before some neatining :shock:

    more :shock:

    (nice generic case for the time being!)

    Will get a post up soon with some sleeving done after I have had some dinner :thumbup:

    Jason

    btw - Will be using the Green UV sleeving, the orange is for a friend :hehe:

    Oooh, lovely. Makes a hell of a difference, tidy cables. (In that you don't get driven insane by the nagging "You have untidy cables" thought :()

    yeh untidy cables suck ;p
    anyway, you might want to use the space you have between your motherboard-panel and the right-sidepanel. you can stick cables between there so they won't go all over the motherboard

    Update :hehe:

    Done all the power cables now with sleeving, though, I didn't have enough for one, so I just tucked it away in the left over 5.25" bay :worried: :hip:

    Also added a new fan :rock: But cables are still like spaghetti :(

    Thanks for the compliment :thumb:

    I Will get arround to heat shrinking all the cables, and trying to sleeve the left over Power cable (I think its a 2 head molex and one floppy power).


    I still need ideas on what to do to the case? I am thinking maybe a window to get the ball going :idea:

    While youre at it, get yourself a decent CPU cooler; that one is truly horrible from all the reviews out there. Zalman 7000s are awesome.

    i personally like sleeved cables to be alil all over the place and messy as you have them.

    But if you want it clearer, then run some cables behinde the motherboard tray and out again at the relivant drive.

    From this
    [​IMG]

    To This...
    [​IMG]

    At Night
    [​IMG]

    IMO It deffiently doesn't look as good as before, but it still looks nice, and the airflow is better then before (especially before I had sleeving!) I still have to finish heat shrinking, sleeve the left over power lead i haven't got enough sleeving for and get arround to putting in a window..for now :thumb:

    Wow I liked how that turned out, I was thinking of putting sleeves on all of my cables in both of my computers and that swayed me. It looks too cool not to not to mention improved airflow.

    hehe yeah, while improving air flow, it looks so sexxy imo :hehe:


    And its not to expensive too, I mean, about $9usd (I payed $15aud) for the Vantec kit and it did 90% of my cables (didn't have enough to do one more power cable :miffed: )

    Go on...you know you want to do it!
