Thanks. I really like the deep blue color of this tubing. Originally I was playing with the idea of using clear Tygon and blue dyed liquid. But after cleaning the blue gunk out of the waterblocks from the fesser one blue liquid coolant that I was previously using, I decided to stick with colored tubing, and distilled water with PT Nuke and Silver Kill Coils instead.

Thank you.

Because others have been asking for measurements, in addition to the cut away view of the illuminated mid panel above, I have uploaded my SketchUp modle to the 3D Warehouse. It shows an assembled view, along with an exploded view of the panel. Dimensions are inches because that is what my local plastics shop required to make the cuts. It can be downloaded here.

I have also made available my 3D Modle for the Swiftech Apogee HD CPU block. Get it here. There are other waterblocks on the 3D Warehouse, but I couldn't find any for the newer Apogee HD, so I made it.

Sleeving

I knew it would take a while to make my own custom length cables (for better cable management), and then sleeve them... but I had no idea my fingers would get so abused in the process. Stretching out the sleeving material over and over again to get it nice and tight over the wires has taken its toll, especially on the ends of my thumbs. Too bad the large calluses on my hands from weight lifting don't extent to the tips of my fingers and thumb. Going to take a break for a day or two and finish my tubing runs.

But a little discomfort is well worth it to get good looking sleeved cables. Not too shabby for my first attempt using MDPC materials. I also want to say that the MDPC Crimping tool is worth its weight in gold! Such a great crimping tool compared to others I have used. Perfect crimps every time! biggrin.gif

SATA Cable Sleeving

I worked on sleeving my SATA Data cables tonight, but ran into a bit of a hiccup. Two of my 5 cables have both right angle ends. It is near impossible to get the shrink tube over those ends, so I was only able to sleeve the SATA cablest that had a least one straight connection.

7083066183_8fc9f6e7ae_c.jpg

I ordered some new cables from Newegg that can be sleeved property. Ended up getting some round SATA cables for easier cable management. Should have them in a few days. Some of my other components should also be arriving at that time allowing to to finish up the rest of the sleeving.

And just a word of advise to anyone that wanting to sleeve their SATA cables... I had to stretch out my shrink tubing (a lot) for it to go over the connection heads. Otherwise it is VERY difficult to get them over. Maybe it is just the brand of cables I am using, but it seemed much more difficult than it should have been.

Getting heatshrink onto right angled connectors on those sata cables are by far the most difficult. I have never managed to do it and I dont think it is possible.

Wait till you get to sata power cables, they are a real pain in the ass to get right.

It's possible, but tedious. I take a piece of shrink and put it over the ends of my needle nose pliers and stretch it out. You have to be quick, but I did 4 right angle SATA cables like that in my last build.

BTW the build looks awesome thumb.gif Love that blue tubing.

I will give that a shot, but I don't have much faith that I will be able to pull it off. I was using pliers to stretch the shrink tube over the other SATA connectors, but when I tried to go over the angled ones, I just ripped the tubing. If I can't do it, at least the new ones coming in will make things easier.

Definitely, and I've found recently that right angle SATA cables cause more problems than they fix.
