Black is Ground. Yellow is 12V. Red is 5V. Those I know off by heart, I have to look up the rest. I just find it easier to take a picture.

So I spent a couple more hours sleeving today. PCI-E x 2, and SATA power done.



Tomorrow a couple of SATA data cables, 1 Molex cable, and maybe a fan or 2. So far I've spent 5-6 hours on sleeving, with probably another 3-4 to go.

I'm hoping to see my case parts back from the powdercoater by next weekend. I'm starting to get anxious, hoping that my planned cable runs will all work out. Ordered a shorter res tube from Daz today for my EK. The 250 is just way too long. With a 150mm tube, I'll be able to tip the res outside the case to drain the loop, or so I hope.

Gord you actually Sleeved SATA.. Well man, I've not seen many people attempt that.. The individual cables on the PCI-E looks slick, but maybe you could zip tie the sata ones.. (just a thought, sorry for the comment.. )

Man o man.. Slick work though.. I'm sure this is a great thread for anybody new to sleeving..

Sorry guys, the picture was there 45 minutes ago. There's something wrong with the forum Image Host again. If it doesn't come back in the morning, I'll edit the whole thread with imageshack links. I lost my Cosmos worklog this way too.

And yes Moe, the cables will be zip tied once they're in the case to tidy up. The only SATA power connector you will see will be the last one into the optical drive. HDD will be reverse mounted to hide the cables. Patience my boy. :)


EDIT: Thread edited to use imageshack links for the photos the ghost ate. Sorry about your lag on the external links.

Holy smokes that an awesome sleeving job! Lol, when I sleeved my psu, I just forced the sleeving over the pins and instead of using heatshrink I used electrical tape, haha.

Update time.

Well, even though I pooched my mobo with a water leak, I'm continuing on assembling the case. Got my parts back from powdercoating, and got some murdermod parts as well.

I got me a serpentine top grill to replace the mesh. There's a black acrylic lip that screws on the underside, and the clear piece just sits there. Easy to remove for cleaning:



Mobo tray with powdercoated grills and PCI covers. The covers had to be drilled to hang for pc'ing, but the hole is at the bottom, you can't see it when they're installed:


Charles was kind enough to supply me with some Hammond boxes. I used one to cover the front panel PCB:


I got the "stealth" faceplate drilled and tapped yesterday, mounted it up tonight. Ignore the color difference, that's an effect of my camera flash. In real light it's the same color as the case:


The "clean" midplate is just sitting in there, it will come out to be drilled for my tubing holes once I decide where the tubing will run. I haven't attached the faceplate on the DVD, I want to test it to make sure it works before I do that.

Next task, finding the correct screws so I can fasten some hammond boxes to the bottom of the case for rad mounting. At least my loop is torn apart so I can test fit pieces easily.

I got my black anodized thumbscrews from Petra's today along with some grommets and MX-3, I've got to check that they fit.

Every time I sit down to figure out what I have left to do, the list gets longer and more expensive.

1. Replace fried X58 mobo.
2. Heatkiller blocks for CPU and GPU.
3. Compression fittings to replace barbs.
4. Pump change to MCP655. BP top. UN mounting bracket. This may happen before #2.
5. Scythe S-flex fans for rad?
6. Quad rad? It seems not right somehow to have a Swiftech triple in this build.

That's about another $700-800 right there. Looks like I'll be selling some spare parts off the bench. Oh well, I'm having fun. I think.
