X-1050 24 PIN sleeved. (Double cables were a lil pain so used 20mm heatshrink to make sure that the sleeves are stay held in place)

I've got the SSD's in the back behind the motherboard. For my 1TB HDD though, that's kind of a tough one. I was playing around with it a little bit last night, while putting the system through a test run. You can kind of see it here in this pic, it's sitting on the floor in front of the PSU. Not sure if I want to leave it there though, sticks out. But I was also thinking of painting it white to match the bottom....just not sure yet. thinking.gif

That might work, just cut some white acrylic to fit over the HDD (hdd cover), and if possible make it go all the way to the front (kind of like a bottom cover). That way if you add another HDD, there is already concealed space underneath.

Looking great jassilamba! Double wires are a pain I agree! I couldn't even get heatrshink in the insert on mine. had to have some funky little bits. I am considering soldering it lutroO style. That was the best I could do with it. Luckily it was my one and only double wire for this whole PSU.

I had a a few cables like that, and the way I took care of them was by taking an exacto knife and removing some of the insulation on the wire (make it skinny), Once that was done they were honestly not that difficult to get in.

Also I used 1 piece of heat shrink on mine.

That might work, I already have a piece of acrylic on the bottom. I could rearrange it so it sits on top of the HDD possibly.

Mostly blue and white


EDIT: Anyone got any ideas for bending acrylic? Would a standard blow dryer produce enough heat to manipulate it?

Some nice looking rigs in here. smile.gif

I am going to tear down my loop here within the next couple of months and rebuild with some smaller diameter tubing for easier runs. Also looking forward to installing the Frozen Q res I've been sitting on since July. Should look pretty nice in the 810.

Not sure if a standard blow dryer would work but a heat gun will surely do the trick - LINK

Yea might as well just pick up a heat gun...I've been meaning to anyway. Thanks for the little vid.

If there is a harbor freight near by I would go there. I have had mine for almost 3 years (paid 10 bucks) and works perfectly fine.
