Fastenal was way too expensive for the qty i needed and the shipping. Thanks for the heads up though.

Where did you end up getting the 3" Screws from?

Although I just finished my 800D build that took over a month and a half, I'm not really all that happy with it (not enough room to run all the wiring ang hoses neatly). I think I might do something stupid and irrseponsible and order myself one of those Caselabs behemoths and be finally done with the hunt
for the perfect case. This is all your fault tongue.gif

Brafasco had them. If you do order something from caselabs, let me know...I may need a few small accessories and can chip in on some shipping.

More stuff today...

700
400400

Still up in the air on what to do with my Video Card scenario...

- pick up the 2nd 590 (new or used...seems to be some used on Kijiji / craigslist) and go 2 x 590

- Sell current 590 (at a loss), go with 2x7970

What size is that Reservoir Cylinder? That thing looks like it belongs on a Beer Bong Contraption.

Are you also planning on sleeving your PSU Cables?

As for your VC's, I would try and get another 590 - preferably used and stick with them unitl NVidia releases their new Kepler line in the coming months.

Btw, Case Labs quoted me $177 to ship via Fedex. That's alot of cash and a little confusing since you paid less and are literally five minutes up the road from me. Will probably be close to a grand when it finally gets here. ohno-smiley02.gif

Who are you getting your WC parts from?

Instead of using a dremel, if you have a pair of wire strippers, they typically have threaded holes near the hinge. These are size for 6-32, 8-32, and 10-32 screws which are all standard sizes for electrical work. Insert the screw from the threaded side to the length you want and squeeze the handles. Its that easy and you get a nice clean break instead of having to deburr the end afterwards.

Who are you getting your WC parts from?

I'll scan you and email you my invoice and the duty charges.

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.

I will take a look... my "good" set of wire strippers/cutters went missing awhile ago.

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.
