Nice colors on the MDPC!
Does that Seasonic have the 18/10 pin connectors for the ATX at the psu?

I'm afraid so. But that's ok, with Lutro's double-wire guide I will have a clean look at the motherboard end. smile.gif

Sure! I have one Seasonic I sleeved and another identical one on the way for my new build, so I'll be doing the same thing again.
Are you going 4 colors on the psu, or is one going to be just for fans etc.?
I have some titanium grey coming I thought about using for front panel stuff this time around. Last time I used paracord for the fans/front panel but didn't really like it all that much, except it's really flexible.

I'm thinking 4 colors but I have more ideas. When the sleeving gets here we'll see what's what. I really hope the b-magic blue is as good as it looks. smile.gif

I ordered some of the Aquamarine to have a good look at it, was thinking about using it to sleeve my Corsair 750 psu/HAF 922 build. Now that I've decided to gut the HAF I'm waiting to see if it might work out in my upcoming build. IDK, pics are good but it's hard for me to get a good feel for it without it being here to compare colors. I almost ordered the B Magic instead, it looks good in the pics I've seen. I wish now I had got that instead of the "uv blue" from modDIY when I sleeved the Seasonic as it looks like a brighter blue.
I have a good bit of black and white sleeving, since that is what I was going to resleeve my Switch build with, but I'm thinking seriously of adding one more color and keeping it for the new build.
Post some pics of the B Magic alongside some other colors when you get it, if you would. thumb.gif

Yesterday, Lutro0 had a live stream & some b-magic in-stock so I asked him to put it on camera, to really see what it's like and he did. It looks absolutely stunning!

Tomorrow I'll be picking up the MDPC crimp tool. Should arrive with some pins so I can finally initiate work on my cables.

I also forgot to update I received my mdpc-"compatible" wires:

Alphawire (that's the brand name) 18 AWG, UL10007, OD - 2.03mm (as per recommendation of using 1.9-2.2mm wire)

So did you get your USB 3.0 cable all sorted out?
post #19 of 347
Thread Starter 
Not yet, but I will. In my 2nd MDPC order I got the "big" heatshrink which should fit over the usb 3 connector to bundle all the wires together. I hope it'll work as I think. :-)

Lol, really? I never thought of trying something like that! thumb.gif
