Done and done. Probably took about 20 hours overall, Definitely much more efficient at it towards the end. I did all the case cables in a couple hours. I'd say, with some practice you could do a 24 pin in about 2 hours if you have the right tools. I think the first 6 pin took me 3 hours, then the rest were much shorter :)

I just did all the non modular cables on a HX1000 for someone, took me about 5 hours. 1x24 pin, 2x 6+2 pin, 1x8 pin. 48 wires total. And yeah, the 24 pin was about 2.5 hours. You get in the groove.

Exactly, back tightening up? Who cares, you're motoring. I found the sunbeam tool worked better on the Corsair stuff than the murdermod. I've also got 2 modular 6+2 pins sleeved and a molex. That's as far as I went for now as I won't need more than that in the near future.

Did you finish your whole PSU yet Sugar?

I've done everything on mine except the 24 pin. I'm waiting to mount the Classified board, to see how long the individually sleeved portion of the cable will be. I plan on sleeving groups of 4 or 6 from the psu to behind the mobo tray, then fanning out to the mobo connector. But I've got issues with the board I picked up on the weekend, it won't post. Going back to NCIX today.

Ah I went all the way, but yeah I plan on doing groups of 4 ties together so they flow out perfectly in a pattern, should look very nice. Sorry to hear about the board.
