Cable sleeving pics:

Here's where I started.


Here's what I ended up with:


I still need to do the PCIE cables. I have to order more sleeving!!!


Not perfect, but not bad for the first time ever.


I also sleeved the power switch cable.

Here's some more sleeving. SATA cables done!!

Here they are (along with a little Sunday thirst-quencher!!)



Alright, next up, I need some input.

I was planning on going with a fan filter up front with a chrome grill on top for my front panel like this:




I saw these:


The benefit being, I can remove the filter without removing the screws for the rad mounting and everything. I already get a ton of dust (just in the several weeks I was running with those filters and the chrome grills I had huge dust buildup). Having the ability to clean the filters without dismounting the front rads and the hardrives in the lower part of the case is a huge, massive bonus.

Hmmm I think I've almost talked myself into it.

Looking good my man!

I love how the EK tops mounting hole's don't line up with s**t, I reversed a UN 3G mount and it fits fine, might be something to consider if those BP fittings are too stressed.

Your going to sleeve the pumps too right? I would be dissapointed if you didn't. ;)

Oh yeah..I'm going to sleeve the pumps (even though they won't ever be visible )

I need to buy a soldering iron as I'm going to trim down those super-long cables and resolder the molex pins.

Any suggestions on a good, not-too-expensive soldering iron would be most welcome.

That will also be used when I splice the fan cables.

My fan controller should be able to handle 3 fans off of one header, right?

The sleeving came from Performance PCs

Carlsberg is much better now that they stopped brewing it here.
