I haven't even done the cable management yet. smile.gif Having all these molex power connectors for LEDs is a pain in that department. So is the inverter for the UV light in the tube res. I really wish I had the skills to strip the molex connectors and turn those into 2-pin connectors. That would make life much easier.

I need to light a fire under my own ass and get this finished!



Bart it don't take a lot of skill. just need to be able to cut, strip and soldier wire and then use heat shrink on your splices. cover it all with sleeving and you ready to go... that way you don't have to worry about crimping pins or getting them out of connectors... easy way to do it. and can still look nice

That's always been my nemesis too. I end up with fairly neat wiring behind the case until I get to connecting 6 -10 molex cables. Are there any tutorials or instructions around about how to do it? I would certainly appreciate it, as I'm sure Bart would.

Gebus! The guy has sleeping problems and now you go and give him nightmares! LOL biggrin.gif

Also, for me, sleeving, crimping, and wire management is a long and tedious process. But for some weird reason, I like it.

First, the Professor disputes entirely the notion that any fellow in his 40s is "old", at least, for any reasonable value of "old."

Second, applause for your bravery in putting a build log online. It requires a certain degree of humility which I have yet to muster. Every "build" that I've done until now has been so much shoe-string, duct-tape, and paper-clips, that I would be embarrassed to show it in public. Bravo.

Third, and most importantly, if my misapplied jigsaw and disastrous dremeling has taught me anything (a debatable proposition, I should note) it is that a build is not a destination; it is a journey. Enjoy the trip, because one can never really go back.

Amen to that. Usually, as soon as I finish a build, I go and play a couple of games and then I'm bored and I wanna build an other one. I wish I could sell me builds for a decent price, and just move on to an other build.

I bought a PCB for the LEDs. If I could figure out how to properly replace those molex pigs with 2 pin connectors, it would make life a lot easier, since this PCB has 8 2-pin spots. I did hit up a local electronics place and got some connectors (forgot the wire stripper though, DOH!). But I have no idea how to crimp the wires / pins properly. Or beyond that, how they fit into the 2-pin connectors.

Well I feel old. smile.gif This was my first time putting up a build log. I did it because I was going underwater for the first time, and figured if I was about to do something disastrously stupid, someone here would point it out before I got burned, or wet. smile.gif Don't be afraid to post on OCN. They take it easy on you. As evidenced by how few people pointed out how awful my tube runs look. biggrin.gif

What I need is a backup gaming PC. When I get the gaming itch, I'm even less motivated to tear down / redo my system properly. And this pig needs a serious tear down, re-tube, etc. Heck, I still have a 50W / channel fan controller I haven't set up yet. Plus, I need to drill some holes in the 800D, or wait on the 900. I can't bring myself to part with my little 140 rad, and it doesn't fit properly in the rear exhaust area, so that needs fixing (hopefully just a few drilled holes).

So much to do:

1) drill holes / move 140 rad so that it actually fits in the 800D with the case window on.
2) make tubing neater, possibly by relocating the helix res to the bottom, beneath the video card.
3) set up loop drain (already have some QDCs, just need to figure out how to re-arrange everything).
4) Go push/pull on the 360? I have the fans for it, just not sure if I have room. That would be a tough fit.
5) Find out how to eliminate as many molex connectors as possible. Further to that, possibly replace UV light in tube res with LEDs instead of a cathode + inverter.

I need some more cables too. I have another PCB for the fans. It has 8 3-pin connections on it, but I want to run that off one channel on my new fan controller. Its a molex too (grrrrrrr). So I need a cable with a male molex on one end, and a 3-pin female fan connector on the other. Even if I go push / pull and use 6 fans, I should still be able to run those off one channel. I REALLY need to learn how to do electrical stuff!!

Bart

There are a lot of tutorials on OCN on wire management, sleeving, making custom connectors just search a little and you will find anything you need including videos on this. Look at the below pages to find one of the best at it. he has his own site with links to his tutorials and video's.

http://lutro0-customs.com/

or his page on OCN http://www.overclock.net/u/135653/lutro0

I can understand getting lazy and not wanting to do it also.

I wasn't this lazy prior to the insomnia. Now that I go without sleep for 3-4 days at a time, I've discovered a whole new level of lazy due to the lack of energy! I've looked up Lutros tutorials before, but to be honest, I find that they suck. They're not geared towards total noobs. That guy would make an awful teacher. He doesn't explain anything in detail. He just works while babblling incessantly. smile.gif Guy is annoying as hell to me.

Thanks for the suggestion though. smile.gif I need to Goggle up some good rookie tutorials on this stuff.

Well Bart I know what you mean about being lazy after 3 to 4 days with no sleep that happens to me at work sometimes it will be 3 or 4 days and most i can get 2 to 3 hours a night because of problems.. I also had this before i got my knee fixed it would throb not really hurt but keep me awake and doctor gave me something to help me sleep and i would take half of one and get good nights rest and wake up feeling good.

Also don't tell anyone but my favorite medicine for this is Bacardi Select and Coke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Honestly I have never look at his video's, I am a Electrician by trade (they call me a electrical project engineer now) so i can look at things and figure out how to do them... sometimes trial and error but i know I can do anything I want to do so i just do it!! lol

especially after 3 or 4 Rum and Cokes or 3 or 4 good single malt whiskeys!!!!! I usually stick with rum and coke because i hate cheap whiskey and I hate to drink good whiskey alone!!

well another all nighter at work in indonesia problems again they got me up so i am looking at this and writing a report!!
