Try UV LED Strips? You might be able to get longer ones that are easier for placement for more coverage to get the look you originally wanted.

That's a good idea. I'm thinking a few of those in conjunction with the UV bars I bought.

Also, post #2 has been updated with a new unboxing video if the PSU. biggrin.gif

Do not get LED uv lights. They do not work. They do not put out enough of a wave to react with the tubing. I had a giant LED stick, 12in I think, and it did not light up my tubing unless it was touching it. I got a couple of dual 12inch ccrt kits by logysis and they were awesome.

I have two 6" Logisys CCFL ones now, so maybe I just need to get another kit? Or do I drop UV alltogether and just get some white lights in some form.

That is what I did. The white LED kit I got makes everything look a lot cleaner. See my build log if you haven't already. I have done both.

This kit is awesome and cheep.

Make sure you get the 6 foot kit. You will need it. This is the 6 foot kit btw.

I love white LEDs, they look very clean.

So I posted this in Lutro0's thread too, but figured it wouldn't hurt here as well.

So does this seem correct? Roughly measuring the cables I believe I need, I get this:

14.5 inches for 4-pin molex to 2x FDD X 4 = 58 Inches
40.0 inches for 3x MOLEX X 4 =160
36.0 inches for 3x SATA X 4 = 144
26.0 Inches for 2x PCIe X 32 = 832
28.0 inches for 8-pin CPU X 8 = 224
26.0 inches for 20+4-pin Motherboard X 28 = 728

for a total of 2146 Inches which converts to 54.5 meters of sleeving.

Is my math correct, or have I been awake for too long? Just want to make sure, since I want to be ready for the next time MDPC-X opens.

I missed this opening, but I'd like to be ready by tomorrow. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Updated post #2 with cable management layout pics.

First, sorry about the less than 24 hour bump. I just wanted to post while it was all fresh in my mind. smile.gif

Minor Update 4-18-12 - Removal of front panel, and sleeving measurements and order organization. smile.gif

I removed the front panel today, and decided to sleeve most of those cables as well, since it seemed a bit too easy to get it out, and it should come apart easy enough.

450

Looks like I should be able to gently pull on the wires while adding pressure somewhere in the connectors. I couldn't see a simple tab or anything. Gonna be pulling all of those little boards out to get at the connections properly. smile.gif
450
Not sleeving the USB 3.0, but will be sleeving the 2.0s, the SD card reader (which is just another USB 2.0), the LED switch, and the reset switch.
450

Power switch and power and HDD LEDs are going to be a bit easier. Maybe. I don't want to pull the switch apart, so I thought I'd be able to slide a piece of heatshrink all the way down as close as I can. This won't be seen, but it's there to hold the sleeve. smile.gif
450

Radiator is going to be a little tight, but I think it will work. Once some of the cables are sleeved, I'll get a better idea of how pliable and manageable they will be. Might wind up looking like a rat's nest. tongue.gif
450
450

So the revised list for measurements for sleeving, and all required heatshrink (both for practice and final product) is as follows:

14.5 inches for 4-pin molex to 2x FDD X 4 = 58"
40.0 inches for 3x MOLEX X 4 =160"
36.0 inches for 3x SATA X 4 = 144"
26.0 Inches for 2x PCIe X 32 = 832"
28.0 inches for 8-pin CPU X 8 = 224"
26.0 inches for 20+4-pin Motherboard X 28 = 728"

40.0 Inches for frnt panel connections X 4 = 160"
35.0 Inches for USB 2.0 headers X 3 = 105"

70 Meters of sleeve. (It actually adds up to 61 meters or so, but I want extra, but not too much extra. biggrin.gif)

At least 192 pieces of heatshrink for regular wires. I think that covers all of the front panel connectors, sans the ones I need the SATA shrink for. So I'm thinking 400 to be safe. smile.gif

plus one pack of SATA shrink

200 pieces of black Heatshrink for practice

I'm still thinking of just doing solid blue for all the sleeving, with matching blue heatshrink, but others have suggested black & blue sleeving with white heatshrink. I'm not really keen on that particular color scheme, though I would maybe do black and blue with respective matched heatshrink.

Still tossing ideas around, but want to make an order today. biggrin.gif

I have to also add that this case is a BREEZE to work with. Solid construction, easy disassembly of most areas, and strong quality connections and wires. smile.gif I'm having a blast!
