Get a build log going too!

Jeffinslaw

I would but it's a little late, haha I'm already half way through the build, but I am considering it tongue.gif

Also,

I emailed Jeff the owner of the acrylics store because I'm going to conduct my own experiments and he wanted to know the size of the squares to be etched, did you mention that in the build log? If not, that information would be greatly appreciated. I will post some pics once I get the supplies. smile.gif

Once again great build!

Or even server PSU's like:

(admittably I am struggling to find a server psu with 2 PCIE 6 6 (6+2) Pins.

Woah! That second one looks almost identical to the original Apple PowerMac G5 PSU! Too bad it is only 300 watts.

Got any in progress pictures of the power supply? I'm interested in seeing your work since I've since given up on my G5 case tongue.gif

Honestly, that is the only way to put it lol. I do have some pictures, I'll upload them tonight when I get home! How come you abandoned your G5 mod????

Hmm... I don't know the spacing, I just said I wanted the etched piece like in the sLight and he knew what I was talking about, I'll get that figured out for you this evening after school.

It was going to involve a lot of modding and planning that I just didn't really want to get into. It was a cool idea, but not necessarily my scene.

It also won't fit my new SSI-MEB form factor motherboard very well tongue.gif

What motherboard? I still think you should do it!!

Anyways, here is just a preview! I will throw it into a full update when it is finished smile.gif

Tools of the trade!

First ever crimp!

DSC06879_zps60bff5e9.jpg

Not bad!

And that is how the CPU power and the 24 pin look at the moment. I need to get some more parts before I can finish the SATA power, molex and GPU power cables!

Hope you guys like it!

Wow. That is so clean, I'm very impressed. Which kind of sleeving did you say you were using again?

And I bought a 4P Opteron board. Kinda sorta by accident, but its on its way here regardless. I'll see if I can fit it in there for you before I completely give up on the project Jeff wink.gif

Well... it will be MDPC when I get some more money lol, but thanks! And I don't have the pictures on my laptop but there was a build a guy did where he fit an SR X in a G5 so I think you can fit your board in there. tongue.gif

Okay, well I have decided after a pretty lengthy debate with myself, I am going to desolder the wires from the PSU and resolder wires in black and grey color, much like Alain-s did with his case mod here. He used black and red wire (didn't desolder wires from PSU, just re-did existing wires).

So, my original color plan was white and grey MDPC, now it will be black and grey wire with no sleeving. I think it will still look good! Now to just find some grey 18 gauge wire and a solder sucker locally. I will work on soldering this weekend. It should work because I bought a new soldering iron that is supposed to get VERY hot.

Make sure to get either .022" solder or the next size up MAX. Any bigger and it starts to get messy.

Thanks for the info! I'll make sure to get the correct size solder.

Ordered wire tonight from Amazon, couldn't find anything local so I bought NTE Stranded Black 18 gauge and NTE Stranded Grey 18 gauge wire for the power cables and I got some NTE Stranded Black 24 gauge wire for fans!

So it looks like I won't be working on the PSU this weekend, oh well. I should finish the FASFA and the few college applications I have left tongue.gif
