OK, folks I am back from the little 3 day vacation I took with my wife. And when I returned a Package from ModDIY.com had arrived. Now i can't stand the 20+4 pin main connecter plug. I always wished it had a solid 24 pin plug. So I had ordered one from ModDIY. Now let me say this... Best idea ever, for one reason Rosewill has VERY hard to depin 6/8/20+4 pin plugs. I mean blistered thumbs hard. So after I gave up on depining with the Sunbeamtech tool I just cut out the pins 1 at a time and sleeved them and stuffed them into there new home. Worked like a charm.

Ok so here we go.

Look folks its 4mm heat shrink. Works way better then 6.5 (1/4 inch) mm stuff.

And at 30 cents or so a foot its crazy cheap.

And now time to get this baby open!!!
7264777784_7d2ccea2ef.jpg

You can't make a omelet without breaking a few Eggs.. (And pro tip here, Remove the shells before mixing, The market for crunchy omelets is very small)

Warranty we hardly knew you..

This Is MADNESS!!! oh ,wait its just crappy see thro sleeving.
7264793830_55ba7f490e.jpg

The Anti-tangle tool from http://www.pccablesleeving.com/ saved me tons of time. It only took 6 hours to do the whole 24 pin plug.

7264807652_967598fec6.jpg

And finished. I know some of the pros on here might do this a little better but I'm pretty happy with the results, My shrink is even and it looks like all the pins are set well. My first 24 pin sleeving try. (I did have to redo the shrink on a couple of them to get them straight.

7264761926_75a94f9c7e.jpg
and
7264771824_c29155e423.jpg
finally
7264833844_bc3e7eddae.jpg

So, now I just need to fit the 8 wires of the EPS12 plug in somehow. And get this all fitted back together.

I am going to try to get the case blasted tomorrow night so i can start in earnest on the build.

I also picked a Motherboard for the build.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128551 GIGABYTE G1.Sniper M3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 $179.99 (Yikes)

Should match up with my build colors and its Future Resistant (nothings future proof)

Thanks, Alder

Just a question are ya gonna get the case bead blasted or sand blasted because only in my opinion won,t sandblasting attack the surface quite dramaticaly because of the age of the metal ?., and possibly ruin the finish. Oh subbed as well.

Thanks for the Sub.

I am going to use 80 grit sand, however its a small sandblaster like you would use for a Car part or something. Its about a 5 gallon sand hopper and I'm running it at low pressure. Also the case is built like a safe. Its 15+ pounds empty so it should take the blasting just fine.

I am planning on doing that tonight. Update later
Thanks, Alder

Well, got the Sandblasting done. It didn't get 100% of the rust. But its enough that I can use Por15 on the little bits that are left and go ahead with the build. I had thought that the shop had leather gloves and everything I would need. Well its not a full time shop and I couldn't find any gloves. Did you know that sandblasting can remove cuticles? Ah, I learned that tonight..The outside was not bad, I was able to let the sand reflect away from me. BUT!!! the inside is a different beast... Every time I stick my hand in the inside I was blasting my hand as well. I grit my teeth and bare the pain for the Mod.. Until my thumb started to bleed. And then it started to get dark outside. So a couple hours with the 80 grit on a DA sander and I'm down to a fairly clean case. I will grab a wire wheel and a high powered drill from work tomorrow and finish the inside. I am also coating the whole inside with a spray able rust proofing primer POR15. Thanks to Oreillys Car Parts being open on Sunday. Yay!!

My thumb XD

Sandblasting is FILTHY work.

Oh, and before anyone asks the truck in the background is a 1947?or 1945? White Superpower semi cab with a one-off 6 foot sleeper with suicide doors that has been molded
unto a 2007 Cummins diesel powered dodge Ram pickup frame. (father-in-law builds Street Rods in his spare time)


And there we have it guys.. The case will be in primer and getting its cuts made tomorrow.

The motherboard tray and PSU holes will be getting mocked up and cut out.

Stay tuned..

Cheers, Alder
