post #7411 of 10493
You think you guys are having cable management issues. When i first got it, my cable management skills weren't that good. so everything just got stuffed under the tray. Since mine is going through a slight make over, to hide the cables. I'm going to need to route them all to where they need to go. Then fit a false floor in the case to hide them all. If I get time, I'm at least going to shorten the 24 pin.

My original plan was to install a faux PSU backplate/Power Hub somewhere near the mobo. The more i researched it, the less practical it seemed tho.

Is it yellow? or is the protective film still on there?
Nice job on the "carbon" stickers! it lines up perfectly top panel -> frame.. good job!

I was seriously considering leaving the PSU outside of the case to save on space and make hiding away all the cables that whole load easier. might still happen, cable routing is going to a complete female canine to hide away. 4 see through acrylic sides isn't going to make it any simpler either.

cheers, it's orange. the pic is from my phone so doesn't do it justice. there's a couple more in my build log. going to have to borrow a decent camera from someone to get some decent shots. you know how long it took me to line up the carbon, none lol. it was a complete fluke. i only noticed when i looked at he pic.biggrin.gif how's your delivery coming along, have you got your tubes yet.

Aah yes smile.gif I got the package a few hours ago tongue.gif
Here is my first test bend.

I will need to do something about my insert.. the wire / cord / cable didnt work so well tongue.gif
But the bend itself came out quite good! 3 min work there tongue.gif so feeling confident I can do this project once I get an insert fixed..
More pics in my log..

*Edit
I think I will tear down my entire loop now.. clean everything.. mount my new GPU cooler etc, and start bending acrylic in the morning smile.gif

i should have gone with the acrylic tubing, see how the normal stuff turns out first. I can see that cable becoming blackened pretty quick and marking the inside of your tubes.Most decent hardware stores should stock the silicone tube for bending. you could try packing the tubes with sand, that's how they used to do it with copper pipes. don't use sugar though, unless you want everything caramelising rolleyes.gif have fun with it.

I DO have a silicon insert, but is a tiny bit too big :S I will try to sand it down a bit..
The black stuff you can see in the tube, is the outer layer of the cable. If I pull it out the other end, the pipe will be clean.. It hasn't stained the inside in any way, just the material left in there that shows.
I just left it in there to show my current problem.

I was thinking of freezing the silicon insert to shrink it..
it is hard to push in, but my guess is it would be fairly easy to pull out again if I could just get it in there.

I find sticking a bit of lube on it helps it slide in easily wink.gif in the vid I posted here a few pages back. the guy says the tubes aren't all exactly the same internal diameter. he recommended either putting a bit of oil on it or rubbing the silicone with sandpaper to help it along. i was thinking more of the plastic sheath on the cable becoming blackened and hardened after repeated uses and scoring the inside of the tube when you withdrew it. if you've got plenty of it. i can't see a problem using the cable for some of the tighter sections of pipe. not sure on how well silicone freezes. i'd imagine it would become brittle. how about tying some fishing line to end,put that through the tube then stretching the hose to reduce it's diameter. Then pull it through the tube.

I tried with some silicon lube, not much changed.. plus I dont like oil and other materials inside the tube if it can be prevented in any way..
I also tried put a string in one end and tried to pull it through, I couldnt pull it pass the bend, but I wont need that anyways.. as long as I can pull it inside a straight tube, I can pull it out easily enough.. so yea, that might work vary well! thumb.gif

Im gonna look for new inserts tomorrow (fuel lines etc..) and try sanding my silicon cord a bit.. maybe use the string to pull the cord through.. so many possibilities! biggrin.gif
It is gonna end up good, Im sure.

Spent the last 5 hours prepping my machine... ZzZ tongue.gif
Cleaning of blocks/radiators/res etc, Putting in new acrylic fittings and stuff like that.


Im gonna upload many more pics to my build log in a few minutes if anyone wanna have a look see.
