I am getting the WC parts from a few, NCIX.com, Dazmode and FrozenCpu.
As for Sleeving...I am not sure what I am going to do. I am going to build as is and make it as clean as possible. Once the power supply is wire up and everything is working, I am going to decide on what route to take.
I like the Dazmode extensions he has, but they are "extensions". I would have been perfect if both ends where "male" and they could pug right into the enermax PSU.
I have never sleeved before, but I am sure I could do it...just more about time.
That would be much appreciated, thanks!
I got all my WC stuff from Daz at Dazmode. The customer service and speed of delivery was outstanding. The only down side is that he only carries XSPC Rad's. There's nothing wrong with them but I want to try a different brand this time. I'll give FrozenCPU a shot.
The pin-outs on the PSU side of the modular cables are usually a proprietary layout and don't have to necessarily conform to the standard ATX configuration - this is only required at the other end that plugs into the device. So plugging in a male end of another cable might result in a lot of smoke and fried parts. I dont' know however if Enermax uses a proprietary pin-out configuration though.
Any cables that you find 'pre-sleeved' will be of the extension type. I'm using Bitfenix Alchemy extensions and I love the sleeving on them. The sleeving is actually 'Paracord' and not your everyday High Density Sleeving. I was actually initially thinking of cutting the modular cables on my AX1200 and individually splicing the Bitfenix cables in the their place. The remaining portion of the Original PSU cable that plugs in the PSU would be covered with one large sleeve to cover the splice points. That would be a somewhat easier way of doing it. The rest of the CCFL, Pump etc cables I sleeved using Darkside Sleeving from Dazmode. I find it pretty stiff when pulled tight and frays fairly quickly after it's been cut unless you burn or tape the end while running the wires through.
I'm pretty anal about wiring and hate looping and 'stuffing' excess wire to make everything fit. I think this time I'm going to cut everything to the exact length I will need - PSU warranty be damned.Edited by Homewrecker - 1/20/12 at 12:44am
