Thought for those interested I'd show you my latest attempt at cleaning up the insides of my case:
Wow.... good job... I wish I could get mine that neat.
Thanks. Just took a little planning and some dremel work in key spots to route the cabling through. Also got a local store to make some custom flat cables for me.
No sound card?
Onboard sound or what?
I don't see RAM either.
There's RAM, it's in the outer two slots, but the picture is at such an angle that the PCB for the RAM blends into the PCB of the mobo.
Oh RW, I officially hate you for doing such a good job.
Oh, yep, the little RAM-gripper-pin thingies are up.
Correct, two sticks in the outer slots, and there is onboard sound. Motherboard is an Epox 8RDA+ NForce 2 board.
BTW whypick, so nice to have a fan...
another cable nazi glad to see i'm not the only one
wow I thought my case was clean but your case is spotless. Great Job
too clean for me needs some more expansion slots
nice one, and I totally agree with your sig.
Wow that turned out really nice man. From the looks of it the IDE cables coem behind the mobo. I really like that. Good stuff
I need to do a few bits to tidy up but this is nearly done, it has 3 hard drives a cd rom drive. But its hard to keep it tidy as the psu only has 4 molexes on it.
Thanks to everyone for the feedback, I appreciate it.
About the IDE cables, yep, all tucked in the back. I measured out the distance between my CDRW and DVD along with the needed extra length. Then I went to my local computer store and had a custom ribbon cable made to spec for minimizing the clutter. All I needed then was a slot dremeled at the right locations to make the cables as flat as possible.
The front panel connectors I ran behind the tray as well, then cut a hole behind the motherboard right at the connections on the Board. All you see as a result is a very minute piece of wire running immediately back under the motherboard.
Thanks Linear, I love your work on your machines as well. Matter of fact, that's where a lot of my inspiration came from; folks like you, Zap and all the others out here.
As for the sig, yeah, almost everything I use in my cases come from one of those sources, except the cold cathode I have in my case. Latest thing I am adding is using Duplicolor Metalcast paint to give an anodized look to my Fan grills and the shroud on my Volcano 9 HSF, and the wire fan grills in my case.
Starting work soon on stealthing my drives and possibly a stealth mounted blow hole...
WOW! I had to double-check to see if the wires were even there! That's cleaner than my case when I remove the hardware.
I think you would cry if you saw my case...
ok definately tidying up my cables tomorrow
This was my effort
Still needs a bit of work though
That seems also pretty solid with teh Mass amounts of HDDs there. How many GBs you got up in there?
