You mind drawing up a quick diagram to show what you mean? If it is indeed different, then it might give me another way to possibly do it. Cheers for the tip! thumb.gif I also don't know if I want to sew the sleeving. I like the way it looks without it if you do it right, but to each their own. tongue.gif

Have a look at this diag ... You need to short the RPM wire/solder (red "X") on the Fan Hub itself (green). Make sure the wiring or solder continues for both the power (yellow/red).



The beauty about the cable sewing is that it shows off your hard work and the color scheme and allows you to trace a wire from end to end. As you rightly point out its a personal thing.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Something I've been messing around with is tiny dabs of hot glue between the cables. I'll train the span of cable with velcro ties or whatnot for a day or so and then hit it up with hot glue to hold it all nice and tight.
Curious about how easy I could remove it if need by, and if any damage was caused to my precious mdpc-x, a little test was in order.
I used low heat, high heat, and industrial strength hot glue to test hold and ease of removing. As you can imagine, low heat came off pretty easy, high heat needed a little work, and industrial strength took a heat gun to re-liquify it for it to even budge. As was the obvious choice, I stuck with low heat. It holds good and well, can be removed if I ever need to reroute cables or switch them out, and conveniently, is the clearest glue, so it's near unnoticeable.

Excellent Khepira. You'll need to let us know how you go... The sleeving I have is all black so there's not much to show off. But the clean and professional look I'm considering.

Cheers.

Ahh, this explains why you are saying that. That diagram (I assume you got from my photo gallery) was one I uploaded, but never used. Look at the diagram on the very first post, and you will see I am doing a variation on what you are saying. That diagram you posted was my first go at trying to do it in MS Paint. I didn't even put the right connectors on the diagram haha. tongue.gif The power pin is supposed to be a 4 pin molex, but I decided to go with a different fan hub. The one I will be using is a 5 into 1, all 3 pins (3-Pin 5 Way Fan Hub). I am going to put 5 fans into the hub, and feed only the yellow and red wires to the channel. The 6th fan is going to go directly to the same channel (with all 3 wires) and I am going to make a y-splitter that will take the 3 wires from the "main" fan to read the RPM from that fan, and the rest only have the power wires running into the splitter. I went this route, because I can actually make a REALLY small Y-splitter, and actually hide it right up by the fan controller itself, so as to not have any exposed or noticeable splitters (which never really look good, even if sleeved). If the splitter I put in that diagram you linked was the right one, you are absolutely right and how you said it is how I would have done it. I do appreciate the time in explaining what you meant, and if I had known which diagram you were referring to, I would have know right away what you meant by short the other 5 fans RPM wires (I actually mentioned why I was only wanting to have 1 fan RPM wire attached in my first post with the correct diagram). Great minds think alike! thumb.gif


Regards,
Addiction


Edit: That was an excellent catch, and proves you were really digging deep and trying to help me out. If I had made those mistakes, it could have been a nightmare. +Rep worthy good sir! biggrin.gif

NP Addict you are most welcome....I did use your diag to retain the context.

I did not go into the cross-over part as I made that assumption from your diagram. Its easy enough to re-pin the cable between the controller (or Y cable) for cross over. I have the same fan hub and also some other types for six fans. The six fan hub type I had to solder under the RPM points as it did not have it. The Hub you have its easy enough to scratch away the solder.

What they should have done was manufacture with a FEMALE connector when it comes to connecting to a fan controller cable. Obviously they are designed for a power connection directly with no device in between - Fan controller in our case. Confusion can reign supreme with these things...thinking.gif

Here's a diag for the fan cable types I have. FrozenCPU can do these just ask Geoff or Mark:



Have fun!!

Nice diagrams, appreciate it. And I'm sure I will have fun, the case gets here tomorrow and I'm done finals the day after. I can't wait to get started on this build! thumb.gif

Perhaps a photolog of the different results on different colored sleeve could be in order thinking.gif

Photo's would be good. tongue.gif So, 1 final down (100%!), 1 more to go. Then build time! thumb.gif Case here tomorrow, can't wait.

Happy to have ya Mike! The more knowledgeable modders in here watching what I'm doing, the better. Can always use ideas and feedback along the way. thumb.gif

So, I just went and picked up my new 6' Executive desk for my new baby about to be built. I didn't trust that cruddy old desk I was using with my new pride and joy, so it had to be done! Pro tip: Don't EVER try and move a 300lb, 6' desk on your own, even if it is in the box. Good GOD that hurt...I'm not as young as I used to be, so that was extremely stupid, and I will be feeling that one tomorrow morning. Maybe next time I'll commission some help in advance. Now I have a long night of furniture building ahead of me, wish me luck! It should look nice when its done though. 6'x30"x30". Will fit my SM8 nicely. thumb.gif
