I had also connected another stock CPU power cable into an unused plug on the PSU and used it for reference.

 

Only after I was satisified that the new cables were wired correctly did I shut the system down and replace the stock cables with my new custom length CPU power cables. I took a deep breath and turned on the power. I could breathe again once I saw the BIOS screen come up and no smoke. There is a reason why they call it a "smoke test". I am glad I didn't see that this time..

Ah do these problems happen often? Thanks for the reply. thumb.gif

Smoke after making custom power cables does happen, but not too often. But, it will make for a bad day when it does happen..

 

I finished making the custom power cables for the MB PCIe and MB memory connections; No smoke smile.gif.

 

Now, on to the other power cables.

 

Cheers,

I did think of doing that, but in the end I want the new trim to match the rest of the trim in the STH10 case. I think I found it at McMaster.com as stock number 8507K12. I should have it in a few days. If that doesn't look right I will order some directly from CaseLabs.

Or you could remove the pins from the connectors and put the wires through, the put the pins back in the connectors.

I received the new rubber trim from McMaster.com and it matches the original CaseLabs trim for the STH10.  I also cleaned up the cutouts and widened them a bit. The power connectors fit through them now. I still need to sleeve all the cables. I am just fitting the custom lengths first. Then I intend to sleeve them.

Here is a closeup of the custom cutouts with the HDD cages installed. I haven't decided exactly how I want to configure the custom SATA power cables for the HDD cages. So, there is still some cable clutter there for the SATA power. (Just ignore that for now..)

Here is an overall view of the MB chamber. I am making progress, but it is slow.

20120715_0006.jpg

 

Here is a closeup of the custom MB power cables:

20120715_0007.jpg

 

So, I have completed the custom length cables for the following:

8-Pin CPU Power

4-Pin CPU Power

MB 6-Pin PCIe Power

MB 4-pin Memory Power

Power for both Fan Controllers

DVD SATA Power

SSD SATA Power

Both Pumps

 

This has reduced the cable clutter on the back side significantly.

 

The power cables that still need custom lenghts are:

HDD SATA power

GPU PCIe power

24-pin ATX for dual PSU's ( that's going to be a big job, but will make a big difference in reducing the cable clutter.)

 

 

Then I intend to that a step back and look at the overall cable routing and see if anything needs to be redone before sleeving all of them.

 

Cheers,

Looking great! I really like the new rubber trim. Sleeving is such a tiresome job, but it is so rewarding. Keep it up! thumb.gif

Loooking great! I love caselabs sliding on mb tray. 10000x better than mm design. I need to move onto a caselab soon. Its unfortunate that I have to pay 100$+ for tax, which is why I haven't bought a caselab product yet.

Update: I completed the custom length, sleeved, SATA power cable for the front HDD cage! Yah.

 

Here are a couple of pics:

700

 

Another view:

700

 

Since this cable has multiple SATA power connectors, I had to sleeve it as I built it. I also wanted the cable to be routed flat, so I "stiched" it. I just used a simple 4 pass "in-n-out" stich and then a simple square knot. I used waxed thread from the bead dept. of the hobby store. This cable goes directly to one of the connectors on one of the AX1200 PSU's.

 

 

Here is the current state of this build (MB side):

 

1000

 

 

Cabling side:

 

 

1000The 24-pin ATX cabels from the two PSU's really make a mess! Don't you like the one that comes over the top of the case?

 

My next task is to create the custom lenght PCIe cables for the two GPU's. Yes, I am saving those 24-pin cables for last!

 

As you can see, I intend to have an alternating black and red sleeving scheme. I also intend to route each power cable flat.

 

I was going to use black sleeving for the SATA data cables, but now I think I want more red trim. So, I intend to use red sleeving for the SATA data cables.

 

Cheers,
