Jackey guessed it. I get all my sleeve from MDPC-X. I tried some cheap sleeve once but wasn't a fan. The next sleeve I tried just happened to be from MDPC and I've used it ever since. I see no reason to get anything else!

Do you think the PP05 short cable length be long enough for front facing power connectors, like a GTX 570?

It should be. I just unplugged one of the cables and pulled it through to about where the power connectors would be and it reached ok. The only problem would be if you had a longer PSU than me. Mines 16cm long.

Lets start with what was going to be my LED fan.

P8300046.jpg

In the end, I couldn't be bothered to do that much wiring so I pulled the LEDs out and sleeved the fans normally.

P8300044.jpg

I installed this fan in such a way so that the cable would be significantly shorter on the rear of the case.

P8300052.jpg

P8300054.jpg

With the fans installed, I then sleeved the modular molex, slim DVD drive and fan power cables. I hid those pics so if you want to see them, you know what to do.

The rest of this update relates to the DVD drive. As you should know, this case needs a slot loading slim drive. They're kinda hard to find and they arn't cheap.

P8310019.jpg

I have a normal drive on hand from my old melanie build. I was just about to buy a slot loading drive last night when I had a thought. If I install my normal slim drive, all I'll need to do to use it is pull off the front bezel. Whats more perfect is that the front bezel easily pops off the case with every other panel still installed. It may be taking the long way around to use optical media but it sure beats buying something I don't really need!

Just a heads up. I'm not sure if I'm happy with the sleeved modular cable. I think if I tried, I could make it look neater.

P8310048.jpg

P8310053.jpg

After routing the length of the sata cable properly, I'm very happy with how the cable management turned out.

Next up, it was time to test the drive and to make sure all my power cables still work. It was then that I ran into a slight problem.

P8310023.jpg

Obviously my windows hard drive needs power which only leaves one molex for either the fans or DVD drive. However I did notice this...

P8310025.jpg

I moved the slim drive power wires into the left side of the fan molex. I've done this with prewired LEDs before so it should be ok.

P8310032.jpg

I turned on the PC and it works!

This makes me a very happy young lad! Theres more to come!
