Nope. Just use normal heatshrink for 1/8" sleeving?

None that I have aware of at the moment. Just cut all the fan wires than solder them to a single one.

Make a loop out of bare wire on each wire. Loop them together, press the loops tight. Add solder. Profit. It is just a fan wire, it doesn't need to be anything special.

Yes any solder would be fine.

How To Solder - Soldering Tutorial

Seems like a decent guide.

Well I have officially hit a snag. I received the motherboard tray today. And well, it won't fit.

At least not w/o some serious modifications to the case. When I did the measuring I was going by the motherboard dimensions on the EVGA website since I couldn't find any measurements for the tray. PSU is going to need to be relocated definitely. I guess time will tell what else will need to be done.

This is on hold for a bit though. Next time I order from Performance PC's I'll order the parts I think I'll need to complete this. Either way I won't have access to all of the PCIe slots more than likely.
