Project Bright Panel: Corsair 800D, Liquid Cooled, Illuminated Mid Panel - Page 2

Thanks for all the words of encouragement and compliments everyone. The panel really did turn out well. Just need to start throwing in some components and tubing to see how it will make things look. I have high hopes wink.gif

All my sleeving materials finally arrived from Nils over at MDPC-X. It arrived in 3 different packages, and it looks like very good quality stuff!

I am going with primarily Black sleeve with a few Royal Blue highlights. Also making all custom power cables so the lengths with be perfect, and allow for better cable management. Sleeving is going to take a while, so I will post some other pics of components and such during the process.

Can I ask-
did you order enough sleeving for your whole pc?
How much did the sleeving/shrinkwrap/tool cost from mdpc inc shipping?

The reason I ask is that I am going to have to order some and am wondering what the damage will be-
Thanks!

I kind of went overboard with the MDPC shop. Keep in mind that I am not just re-sleeving, but making all my own cables for custom lengths, so a lot of what I purchased is based of of that need.

If you were to just get a single sleeving kit, some pre-cut heat shrink, and the crimping tool it would run you somewhere around $100, international shipping cost included. The Crimping tool is the largest part of that cost, but it is well worth it.

Nils is apparently pretty slammed right now, so the shop is only open for a short time each day (short as in less than 15min). I spent around $200, and got all of the following:

[*] MDPC Crimping-Tool
[*] MDPC Sleeve-Kit
[*] Pin-Remover 4-Pin - Save My Wallet
[*] Pin-Remover by MOLEX - The Original
[*] Sleeve SMALL - B-MAGIC
[*] Sleeve SATA - B-MAGIC
[*] Sleeve USB - BLACK
[*] Heatshrink SATA - BLACK
[*] Pre-Cut Heatshrink SMALL - BLACK
[*] 3-Pin Straight Fan-Connector
[*] Crimp contacts FEMALE for ATX, PCIE, EPS
[*] Crimp contacts MALE for ATX, PCIE, EPS
[*] Crimp contacts for fans
[*] 4-Pin MOLEX BLACK - Housing
[*] 3-Pin MOLEX BLACK - Housing
[*] SATA Crimp-Connector
[*] SATA Power-Connector THROUGH
[*] SATA Power-Connector END
[*] Fat-4-Pin Male
[*] Fat-4-Pin Female
[*] Cable-Management-Clip SMALL - BLACK
[*] Cable-Management-Clip MEDIUM - BLACK
[*] Cable-Management-Clip BIG - BLACK
[*] Cable-Management-Clip JUMBO - BLACK
[*] Sleeve SMALL - BLACK
[*] 24-Pin MOLEX BLACK - Housing

My "Helper"

I mentioned earlier that my 2yr old is a button freak. Well I caught him red handed turning my mid panel on and off over, and over again. Those illuminated vandal switches are just too much temptation for him. I'm glad his older sister doesn't share his love of button pressing.

Looks like I need to put the case up high until this build is done, at which time I can move it into the office (which has a locked door biggrin.gif).

Be aware that you can also buy them with the wiring already done if that interests you. Wasn't an option for me because I wanted a specific length, but it would make things easier.

Spent a bit of time last night getting my fittings and sleeving materials organized for easier access. I am waiting on one more component to arrive, then I will hammer down on sleeving some custom sized PSU cables.

7048179865_a2092a7d12_c.jpg

Also set up all the tools I will need to complete my cables. I was a bit hesitant on buying the crimping tool from MDPC since it was more expensive than what I can find locally. But after actually crimping a few terminals, it runs circles around my old crimping tool. Very glad I went with this one, as it will probably help the sleeving process go faster.

6902086602_54bb483123_c.jpg

I plan on mounting the Motherboad tonight so that I can get exact measurements on cable length, allowing me to finally start the sleeving process. I have never attempted to sleeve anything with the quality of materials provided from MDPC-X, so I'm pretty excited to see how it turns out.
