That makes me want to spend 10 hours getting extremely frustrated, pissed off but in the end having a beautiful cable setup.

Actually it isn't that bad if you have a good tool. I have the tool that MurderMod sells and after using it a few times it gets pretty simple. Hell I even enjoy it and I can't stand doing any other sort of modding anymore.

Good to know, although I'm not sure how I could sleep each cable on my HX 1000. All the modular ones are black and stuck together.

True. When you get the trick, with the right tool, it goes pretty quick.

These ones yeah. http://www.overclock.net/attachments...n-img_6320.jpg

What's the risk of doing this, if you missed one connector somewhere?

Or try cutting the wires from each other with a razor blade.
