Great man, good luck on more..

Thanks fellas!

however...

DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!

Does anyone have a trick for crimping molex pins for an idiot who forgot to order a crimping tool?

(I've just now ordered a crimper from PPCs, but that'll take a week+)

I believe a "duh" is in order. haha

@BrainEater - That's exactly what I was thinking, but needle nose pliers can't bend the ends around and back to pierce the wire. I intended to solder them all along, but I wanted to see if anyone had a quick DiY crimping method. Thanks mate.


I started wiring my GTX280's tonight.
First I soldered the pins into place, because I didn't want to wait for the crimper to arrive.
I also sleeved the ribbon cable style wires with my Nylon Multifilament sleeving.


Believe it or not but these power lines will pretty much be the ONLY VISIBLE POWER LINES when the build is done.


The tubing is not complete , and all the heatshrinking is temporary, also the hose clamps will be swapped out.

Here is step 1 in the wiring puzzle:
I crossed the wires like this so make bending them around the GFX card easier.






I've also installed the clear tubes that will act as windows:

Someone pinch me, this isn't real. It's all a dream, right?

Also, awesome work. I wish (hell, we all do) I had enough money to do something like this. However, I'd probably lack the patience that you must have to do all these extras.
