I love the fan cable braiding. I had assumed they were separate wires inside, not that you connected them threw solder.

The fan cables have all the wires inside a single piece of sleeve. Since I connected 3-4 fans to one fan-header, I did have to solder the wires.

 

Update: I have completed sleeving a custom length 24-pin cable for dual PSU's. I hope to "ohm it out" tonight and install it. Stay tuned for photos..

 

Cheers,

I've been putting off installing the 24-pin cable I wired and sleeved becaused I was concerned I would fry the MB or CPU. But, I finally did it!

 

I think the sleeving came out okay considering this is the first build I did any sleeving.

The cable sewing still needs some work, but I needed to be sure I wired the cable correctly first. For me this is a major step forward! Both PSU's came on as they should and nothing smoked! I'm happy!

 

So, here is a shot of the full MB side:

I sleeved the cables for both GPU's. I still need to sleeve the CPU power cables.

 

Here is a shot of the back side:

It looks soo much better now that the 24-pin cable is cut to size and sleeved. I have 2 PSU's, so there used to be two 24-pin cables plus a special extender cable to connect the two PSU's.

 

That 24-pin cable was such a big psychological block for me. I feel like now I can continue on with the rest of the cable management tasks.

 

Cheers,

I'd be interested in some tips or guidance on the "sewing" of the sleeve. Considering doing that on mine.

Pongo....the sleeving looks sick dude. Sewing looks good as well. Did you follow the same technique as this guy?

See below. I've been following your build and it is over-the-top awesome. Great job!

Thanks. I did see his videos and his technique seemed like too much work for me.

 

 

First, let me say that I got my inspiration from the "CaseLabs TH10 Red and Black" build log from P3nnywise. (His cable sewing starts at post 15). 

 

So, here is what I did:

 

P3nnywise said he used waxed thread from the bead dept. at the local hobby store. So, this is what I got and my wife had a large needle with a blunt tip:

 

 

I did just a simple "over and under" stich that starts like this:

 

I briefly considered just using the masking tape, instead of the stiching,  to keep the wires in place, but that just wouldn't work here at OCN, LOL!

 

 

Then the second pass:

 

Then the third pass:

 

Fourth pass:

 

 

Then pull the thread tight and start a simple square knot:

 

Finish the square knot:

 

And then it looks like this:

 

This seems to work okay for a single row of wires. But, I'm not sure if I like how it works and looks when you have a double row of wires, like the GPU power cables or the 24-pin ATX cable.

 

So, it might be worth it to give Frank N. Stein's method a try.

 

Cheers,

So, here is what I did:

Quest....+rep on the video! I watched all four....but got a little lost. He's a little wordy, isn't he? I think if I watch them again...I may follow completely.

Pongo... appreciate the kind words...and the pictures of your method. +rep. Definitely easier to follow than the videos.

I'm armed with enough knowledge to be dangerous now. I'll give some version of this a shot soon. P3nny's build log was one of the ones that really got me wanting to do a new build.

Question....are you still using something to start the two PSU's....or did you wire it yourself. I've been planning on wiring one myself.....but haven't done it before. Right now...I'm just shorting the power and a ground together on the 2nd PSU so that it's on all the time. It seems logical that if...instead of wiring these two together...I wired them to the same pins on the 1st PSU...that it would come on only when the 1st PSU was turned on. But I haven't tried it yet. Can you share what you did?

I wired the PS_ON# pin from PSU1 to the same pin on PSU2 (and back to the MB connector)  and also connected a ground wire between the 2 PSU's. That way, both PSU's turn on or off together.

 

I did this on the PSU side of the 24-pin ATX cable. That way I have just a single set of 24 wires going from the MB to PSU1 and just 2 wires going from PSU1 to PSU2.

 

I bought two sets of blank PSU connectors for the AX1200 from ModDIY. That way I don't have to de-pin the original PSU cables in order to make my new custom length sleeved cables. Those connectors might work for your AX850's.

 

Cheers,

This is exactly what I want to do. I also plan on doing my own wire for the auto-shutdown feature of the AQ5...and will probably do it right in the same location. Because of the 2 PSU wiring, the AQ5 shutdown, and the instances of double pinned wires....I'm planning on doing all those connections into an initial 24 pin connector within the first 3 or 4 inches after the PSU. Then I'll have an extension that is a straight 24 pin to 24 pin that wraps around the MB tray. That way I can work at making sure these are all the exact same length and sewn together nicely.

I appreciate your tips. Keep up the good work! Your build is coming along nicely!
