Mechanical Engineering, I was all giddy when I saw you guys 3D modelling and making your own heat sinks. Once I have the money I will be doing something very similar

I'm planning on doing some videos of block installation.

That is a vid I'm looking forward to, I have a Mips cpu block and I'm having a bit of a trouble sorting out its assembly tongue.gif

That'd have to be one of the first sexy AMD blocks I've ever seen. I should've known it would be based on the sexiness of the Intel block but damn.

P.S. Intel block still moar sexy. wink.gif

Starting work on remaining cabling. Here is a picture of the PSU side. You can see the new 24pin extension plugging into the original cable. This is the one I've been dreading doing. But it must be done. Also...have one more power harness that will power the cold cathode inverter and the Blu-Ray in the pedestal. Also...one power harness for the Lamptron FC8.



Not much cabling left!

Cool. Looking good back there. Did you already wire it for shutdown from the Aquaero?
Of course it may be simpler to just use the rpm signal from the Aquaero to shut the board down, if your motherboard will work that way.

I'm going to try one of the mini tamiya connectors for my FC8. I am going to just totally remove the factory wiring and run the connector behind the side of the case, maybe split off with more minis for the pumps and some other things.

I'm putting it together first without the shutdown wiring. I want to make sure what I'm doing will work...before I add too much to it. Should be done with it tonight. I've got all wires cut. All wires that need it have been joined and soldered. All wires have insulation stripped. I'm working on crimping pins right now...and then I'll sleeve.

I've been wondering and you might have answered this previously shown or answered this but I couldn't find it. Are you making your own psu wires for your 850 or are you using the wires that it came with and separating them to sleeve?

Definitely making my own. The wires that come with the AX850 are all black. Since some of my sleeving is white...I would have to tape each one of them. That would be a giant PITA. Much easier to snip my own white wire to the size I want and go from there. Also...there are four 2 to 1 wires, where Corsair just sticks two wires in one pin. You can't do the shrinkless method if you're going to stick two wires in one pin....so for these I'm splicing and soldering a join in the middle of the wire, ...so that I only have one piece of sleeve going to the connector...and can do the shrinkless method. Corsair also has two wires that are twisted around each other. Short story...it would be gigantic pain to just sleeve their own wires.

As I'm working on this piece of the 24pin...I'm thinking how much easier PSU manufacturers could make it for enthusiasts...by just making a straight run of 24 pins to 24 pins. No criss-crossing. No twisting. No double wire pins. All these things are design issues being made by people who CLEARLY have never sleeved their PSU.

The extension piece of the 24pin that I've done already looks so nice and neat. It holds its pattern for the entire length. This little short piece I'm working on right now that will plug into the PSU and the extensoin.....is a mess. Wires crossing over each other. Splices. Yuck. But...at least I've kept the messy part of the cable only on the PSU side and its relatively short.
