Red Devil a budget mod for my budget game rig

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well my old asus mother board fried and im now waiting on a shiny new (well new to me) gigabyte from toMsons1987. in the mean time i figured it would be a good time to do some low budget mods to my computer while its torn apart already. i got a little gun hoe into it before i thought to take pictures and put it up here so you may have to bear with me a bit on some parts but whats done is done. i plan to do a few things to the case to make it a little more friendly to my constant picking probing and taking apart and a couple things for visual aesthetics.

i will:
make the motherboard tray removable
cut holes for cable management and for the cpu back plate
coat my cables and the like to my color preference

im going to start with the cables to my OCZ Fatal1ty 550 power supply. they allready come with a cheap black sleeving but i decided i wanted it red but well im a cheap person and sleaving isent cheap and takes alot f time to do right. However to my luck when at the local hardware store i thought to look for some red cable ties to use latter for cable management and found a "holiday" pack witch had red and green cable ties of multiple sizes and red electrical tape. i decided that along with the already present sleeving it would do quite well for getting my desired color

lets start
337

voiding the warranty.... eh who needs it
337

what it will look like before and after
337

almost there and tapes running thin. never thought just wrapping tape on cables could make my hand cramp up so bad, o well nothing a short smoke break wont fix.
337

and done with alittle tape to spare for latter

Really... Did you just tape your power cables with red electrical tape doh.gif

$9+ shipping would have been better.

And if you do you cable mangement correctly you will only see about 4 inches from the psu to the motherboard tray and maybe 4 inches from the connectors to behind the motherboard tray.

example:

the placement on my old mobo did not allow as such and im used to seeing the cables. and i never seen that kit that cheap before but its still more expesive the a 50 cent roll of tape as well as waiting for shipping. i am cheap and inpatient lol. this is the kit iv always used before
