As long as you selected USPS, it's fine. Might take some time though with it being the Holiday season now.

Usually I get stuff within 2 weeks. Odd time it takes close to a month.

I would like to use this thread for help with a cable issue of my own, if that's cool.

I want to buy this to light up my FT02:

NZXT Sleeved LED Kit Review | Unbiased Computer Hardware Reviews - ThinkComputers.org

For a clean look I need an extension cable for the power, so that the molex connecter isn't dangling in the middle of my case. Can I use this:

NCIX.com - Buy NZXT Premium Sleeved Computer Cables Black 3PIN Fan Power Extension Cable - CB-3F In Canada.

Or is the connector proprietary?

That's definitely not a 3-pin fan connector on that cable.

What I'd suggest, cut off the sleeving, cut the wire and then bridge in some additional wire. Solder it up then heatshrink/sleeve over it all.

Otherwise, maybe contact NZXT and see if they can provide/direct you to a proper extension. I'm guessing that connector isn't totally proprietary, just probably uncommon.

Default The search goes on

I went to the NZXT forums and someone over there things it is something called a CCFL cable, shown here:

CCFL Extension Cable 12" Sleeved Products Model: CCFLEXT12 [CCFL-EXT-VAR] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Thoughts? Can this be purchased locally?

Those CCFL extensions are only 2-pin. It'll probably work for extending the cable for the LEDs, but not the molex-to-card connection.

Well I might as well post a link to the discussion I am having at NZXT:

Need to figure out what kind of connector this is

The person helping me says the cable is three pin but has two wires. Do I need three wires?

I don't know since I don't have one myself.

I'm thinking it's just easier to splice the wires and add what you need...

Yeah, I haven't seen my soldering iron in years. I might try to find it if this doesn't pan out. Thanks for your help.

I use the same LED rig in my case. You can run it behind your mobo to hide it (the power connector). If you don't have a cut out in your tray pickup a "step" bit and make your own. It's a small hole.
