    Here I am for a small update. I sleeved and created some cables that I am gonna use with my mod!

    Here I used some cables that comes with fans etc. to create some moles extensions.

    Removed the molex.

    And eventually I left the cables only for better sleeving. Even though that these cables wont be visible I wanted to do something nice.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here they are finished:

    I found some splitters and I decided to use them. So I had to sleeve them too.
    I also changed the molex with some easy grab ones and also different color not like they will be visible but they are easier to use.

    My order arrived from MDPC-X and Mr.Nils signature as always unique !!

    [​IMG]

    Some red sleeving, rivets and M3 screws....

    [​IMG]

    So here you are going to see me creating 4 PCI-E cables. I had to do this cause I couldnt find proper extensions. I used 20 meters wire, pins, a lot of sleeving and a looooooooooot of patience!!!

    Here are the original cables which I will disassemble so to see where the cables go from the one plug to the other and also cause I am going to use the PCI-E plugs.

    Passing the 8 wires through the sleeving.

    [​IMG]

    Striping the wires

    [​IMG]

    The cables ready for some sleeving

    [​IMG]

    Red and black sleeving and heatshrink ready

    [​IMG]

    So far so good!

    [​IMG]

    I added heatshrink to the inner part of the cable for extra durability

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pins arrived eventually from USA (it took almost a month!)

    [​IMG]

    The worst part it was the "pins" one!! Even though I had a crimping tool a lot of cables had
    to be double making that impossible to use the tool or push them into the PCI-E plugs. Eventually after 4 and a half hours I managed to finish the cables. I eve applied the uneven technique here by placing the red - black sleeving in different patterns and also the heatshrink so they are 2 - 2 cables the same.
