Thanks for testing this. Will paint tomorrow. Let me know if it becomes sticky after few days.

Its in post #361 and #391....it needs both. Confirmed by Shoggy.

The AQ5 unit itself needs the 5v also...so use all 4 wires. But the PowerAdjust2's only need the 12v and ground. Just two wires.

Just got this crimper from Pololu (left one with blue handle) for USB 0.1" pins (smallest one); and as compared to MDPC one. Not as heavy and sturdy as the MDPC one but it serves the purpose..see below:


Also got this multi plier set in Sears for $15..was a steal:


Used the plier to move bottom crimp:


The green one i just did went into usb without using pliers or a pin to push it in:


This should make my life easier doing remaining 10 USB wires - 20 connections - 80 crimps.

little less than 10":


partially complete to test if length is correct. Looks very nice:


from top view...only 1 -2 inches will be seen:


will do rest tomorrow .. remainder of this cable to VGA0 on PSU and new cable to VGA1 on PSU . Two separate cables.

All I've noticed is that although I used a gloss white, the end result is less than glossy. which is OK for me, since my case is matte white. With the Krylon I was able to put several coats on in a short amount of time as it seemed to dry really quick, even though the humidity has been very high lately. However I brought them inside to dry between coats where the humidity tends to stay below 60%.
A few people have suggested that it might be worthwhile to dye them, as cpachris did with his sleeve and connectors. That is just more than I wanted to put into it, unless absolutely necessary.

So those new crimpers work well with the small pins? I've noticed the MDPC crimpers don't really do a stellar job on very small pins such as the Harwin 855-M20-1180046 (for 2.54 pitch connectors).
I'm hoping it will handle the mini tamiya connector pins OK although it might take some precrimping with pliers.

I dont mind if the color changes a bit or the finish. The main thing is if it becomes sticky or starts peeling off when totally cured. 24-48 hrs. Keep it under a spotlight.
At this time, I too am not interested in investing time to dye.

Crimper is good for small pins.

Those wire lengths look spot on. They curve nicely, too. I'll have to get me a crimper soon!

It is really painful at start....Takes a while to get used to it...and first month for me was a disaster.
Plus you will develop calluses . In some cases it is just not worth doing it in my opinion.

Yeah but I still wanna do it, Just the fun of customizing it myself, and making it my own instead of the same as every other PC. Plus, depending on how much time you put into it (Youve put a lot into it, and it shows) It really adds to the quality of the build. Everything looks clean and tidy. And well put together! :3
So I would still like to do it. For mine, Im thinking Green and black.. Ill have probably just as much wiring as you. So Im wondering how much (or a ballpark estimate) You think Ill need to spend to sleeve all my cables..?

Keep up the good work!
