Well, my skills aren't that great, but I do have an idea for that ... and another part of the case, the dual LCD holder for Air and H2O temperature readout ... but luckily, I know someone who is very skilled.

Looks like it's time for another custom order from Dwood. biggrin.gif








Now the only question is, do I leave the plates orange and put a black plate behind them so to have black lettering, or paint the plates black and have an orange plate behind them to have orange lettering (ie "Muzzle Flash", "Air", and "H2O")?

I just wonder if I'm getting too much orange in there.

Alternatively, I might try to rig up some LED's behind a clear piece of plexi on the LCD holder and have the words "Air" and "H2O" light up.

Thoughts?

Manfrotto MKC3-H01 tripod

I got the same one for my dslr and is is really good and small doesn't feel cheap like others

Well, I think the bridge has to be orange ... We see the orange in the ped, but we don't see your non-orange pumps, or the res, so I think you're still on the safe side of amount of orange wink.gif

I like the led idea, tho - maybe an orange plexi ? enough to let the led shine thru. Maybe the symbols for Air and H20 instead of text. Now those could be a Dwood lasercut !

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


After stripping off all the old sleeving from the SATA power connector, remeasuring new sleeving, and shrinking it down and melting it to the terminal, the first wire is done.




Here is a shot of the competed SATA power connector.




Here is another angle of the SATA power connector. I dare say it looks nearly flawless.




Not that the other end, where it meets the PSU, looks shabby.




The only problem with such a short cable, when it is at rest, some of the wires look out of place.




Here is the SATA power cable installed and working in its new home.

Great job at sleeving, I surelly prefer the heat-shrinkless edition, What connector did you use at the seasonic's end? It is the original that came with the PSU or just a simple 6pin VGA connector? It is a great idea and I am thinking of doing the same with an AX850, one connector from psu directly to the Bitspower X-Station.

Thank you.

The connector isn't from the original Seasonic kit. They have lettering stenciled on the connectors and I didn't want that, so I ordered just raw connectors.

Sadly, I forget where I bought it from. I'm 90% sure it was from an order that I placed from Performance PCs some time back. The pins are from MDPC (although you can get pins from Performance PCs with the connectors, and I got some, but the quality of them weren't up to what I wanted, so I just didn't bother using them) that I got from an order I placed for other things after I got the connectors.

I ordered a *PANT LOAD* of connectors from Lutro0 a couple days ago and they haven't gotten here yet. When that gets here, my sleeving supply box will be running over with goodies. All this obviously isn't just for this build, but rather for several more builds to come:

Qty Item Options Price
5 3 Pin Fan Male Connector $3.75 USD
10 3 Pin Fan Female Connector $7.50 USD
30 Molex Female ATX Terminal (5 count) $9.00 USD
30 Molex Male ATX Terminal (5 count) $9.00 USD
15 10 Pin Female Connector $11.25 USD
5 1/4th Inch 3:1 Ratio Heatshrink 4ft (For Heatshrinkless) $10.00 USD
1 LC Flush Cutter $8.75 USD
15 8 Pin Female PCI-E Connector $11.25 USD
5 8 Pin Male PCI-E Connector $3.75 USD
5 8 Pin EPS Male Connector $3.75 USD
15 8 Pin EPS Female Connector $11.25 USD
5 6 Pin Male PCI-E Connector $3.75 USD
15 6 Pin AUX Female Connector $11.25 USD

Thank you.




And on another note, I just ordered the case for my next build, which will actually be a slight, for now, rework for my "White Ranger" build. Sadly, because the case maker is really busy right now, it won't be ready for 3-4 weeks. That should give me enough time to finish up "Muzzle Flash" though.

Tonight I whipped up an 8-pin cable (extra long) to power the CPU. Enjoy!




After cutting all 8 wires to length, it's time to strip the ends with the new Snipex tool from Lutro0 Customs, then put on the terminals with my handy-dandy MDPC crimper.




Between the two tools, all the cuts and crimps are virtually identical ... and perfect.




A little closer up shot of one of the perfect "M" crimps that the MDPC crimper is known for.




All the wires are now sleeved and stuffed in one end of the 8-pin connector.




Here is a close up of one of the ends of the 8-pin connectors with the heatshrinkless sleeve just "appearing" out of it. So clean a look.




And here is the completed cable.
