Hey, thanks Ash! Glad you like it
More 'almost-updates' to keep the worklog going.
Did some more sleeving yesterday because I found some heatshrink in a box (I thought I'd run out and placed an order at MDPC-X to replenish supplies )
4-pin molex cable. It had 3 molex 4-pin connectors and one floppy power connector:
It got the chop because all I needed were two connectors:
Removing the pins:
Ended up with this:
And a bunch of other sleeved cables (4-pin molex, 6-pin PCIe and 8-pin EPS):
More updates soon (promise - I'm near the end now, and I'm not faffing about )
Very nice sleeving job there man!! And nice photography too!!!
Thanks man. I just wrapped up the 24-pin cable, but too tired to post pics (it's 2am).
Will update tomorrow!
Right, so I promised another update and here it is.
I got more heatshrink, a crimping tool and a bunch of male/female and fan pins from MDPC-X. Muchos gracias to Nils for throwing in some extras
Cartoon, as usual
ATX/EPS male pins
ATX/EPS female pins
Crimping tool (it really gives a perfect crimp!)
Same tool with jaws open
Heat gun. I left my other one in LA and doing big heatshrink with a lighter is a colossal pain in the rear.
And the sleeved 24-pin cable (finally!)
I'll probably be done by the weekend (with a temporary side panel, while I keep badgering CM to get replacement side panels to India).
Stonesurd, i live in Holland so i can probably get you a new sidepanel and get it to ya. you may suggest that to them?
Nice! Just wondering how do you update on the 4th, when its only the 3rd? OMG TIMEWARP.
Have you checked the timezones?
Beautiful work, though. That front panel looks ominous!
I got word that the AMD-edition side panels for the HAF 932 will be hitting the CM store in a week or two. Those are pretty much what the doctor ordered for this build, so I might actually take you up on your offer once those become available and if CM India still haven't got their act together.

EDIT: Looking at the 24-pin cable is pissing me off. I think I'm going to redo it and sleeve each wire all the way.
Hehe, I was about to ask you if you'd run out of sleeve.
Looking very nice so far, by the way.
The build is looking very nice, keep it up.
Actually I did run out!
Just used 38feet of black sleeving on the wires and there are 10 left to do. Should have measured before starting. Now I have to order AGAIN from MDPC. I really need to plan this stuff out better.
Thanks b4Oz Good to see you posting again!
That stuff is for your cpu, NO
Epic thread revival with a quote from the first page.
Good timing on the revival though.
I'll get working on it tomorrow as I'm home sick with some sort of evil mutant flu.
Plans have changed drastically, however, as I cannot justify sinking tons of cash into this given that I spend no more than 2 months of the year in India and am unlikely to return to this home once I'm done studying. I will just complete the loop with a 240mm radiator and leave it at that.
Too bad This was going great. Oh well.
