Flashing random chinese doo-dads. You rock.
Not many modders are brave enuf to build a air cooled mod nowadays! but this is really cool (excuse the pun)with some really nice ideas mixed with clean pro looking mods
Working on 24-pin
Terminating the other end of the 24-pin. Hopefully I got all these the correct lengths.
Terminated them all upside down.
But after 4-6 hours I was able to fix them.
Going to need a couple of Y-cables since I am using an 8-pin PCIe on PSU end for the 8-pin EPS on the motherboard. Outcome is way cleaned cables @ PSU end. Melt them a bit to make sure all cables hold. Then I'll put heatshrink over top to make it look decent.
Finished off both 24-pin and EPS. 24-pin combs will be broken off in a few days after the cable 'trains'.
God damm. That is some sexy cabling. Think i need to go back and re-read the whole log.
That has to be the cleanest join of a Y-split ever. Beautiful.
Notice cables on right. Each column changes colours but the rows are the same.
But I messed up on the 8-pin EPS and I changed both column and row.
Because of it I would have had a duplicate colour visible on the front. I tried to fix it a few times but I ended up just making it worse. So I redid the 8-pin from scratch.
Gave it a bit more slack @ the mobo end, which I think looks better. You can also see the first UV LED stripe installed. Also seen I've installed the PCIe cables and have removed the combs.
And the backside. I decided to use a couple of connectors for VGA in case I use a different GPU and it has a different connector setup. But limited to 8+6. Guess I should have done dual 8, but hindsight is 2020.
really nice build
