I would have gone with #1 since it matches all of your other cabling better, but it seems #3 had it in the cards.

I say it's about time for you to start blocking and drowning. I decided to block before most other things so that I can get precision measurements for what Bitspower pieces I need. I've also been tinkering with some lighting, but haven't come to any conclusions yet except that I'm very glad I chose to play with flicker LEDs.

Nice job. I didn't realize you were doing an extension.
The run is so short from my cpu to psu that making an extension was out, plus the 24 pin on the board is offset a few inches from the pass through on the case side. I just used the cable clips, don't think I'm going to be doing any sewing with my messed up hands.

Do you already have a connector for the relay output on the Aquaero to make the ATX break work? If not the only place in US I found them was Sidewinder but they seem to be sold out at the moment. I ended up ordering one and the power connectors for the Aquaero from Aquatuning. $17.47 for shipping + customs for $3.66 worth of parts. rolleyes.gif
Upside is I ordered Thursday, and by Saturday the stuff was already in the US.smile.gif

24 pin looks beautiful! I can't believe I hadn't thought of making the inner wires shorter. Many a days of velcroing/ twist-tying cables into place to train them for a few days before they would look semi-right.

Like the sound of the athletic director's board. smile.gif I have a video of me doing a half-time interview at a televised OU basketball game last year. I used the wrong form of the word alum in the interview. Embarrassing. I'll try and find it and post a link here.

#3 was definitely the OCN favorite. However, the beautiful thing about doing an extension....is if I change my mind, I can make changes to the pattern in about 5 minutes. As long as the new pattern requires the same # of white and crimson pieces. You'll need to post some video of those flickering LED's so we can see them in action.

When I first started planning...I kind of poo-poo'd the idea of an extension. I thought an extension was for those that didn't want to make custom length cables. I've changed my thinking. Because of double wired pins, twisted wires, and other PSU manufacturer imposed nightmares on the sleeving community.... tongue.gif ......a 24pin is THE cleanest way to have a straight run of cables that keeps the pattern. I'm still doing a custom back end to it also....but using an extension also provides a layer of abstraction with PSU changes. I can swap out a PSU for a different manufacturer's PSU... and still have my extensions work just fine and look the exact same. I'm actually thinking about making extensions for the 8pin connections also.

Yeah. He had a bigger, nicer one, but it was just a bit too oversized.
