Now what's the plan for all this stuff?
I've already got my current sata data cables sleeved, but I'd like it a little cleaner by cutting the cables to length. I've already killed 2 cables doing this, so 7 new cables should give me some breathing room
I've also tried packing 2 cables in one sleeve, but I couldn't get this clean enough to my liking (yet). I may experiment a little more with this...
The 5-pin connectors will go on my custom sata power cables, so they'll plug directly into the PSU, eliminating the need for the standard sata cables completely.
I'll also do something
with the cables going up to the fans, though I'm not quite sure yet what exactly. I've got 3-way splitters from Bitfenix that look pretty clean (nice individual sleeving) and 6-way splitters from Phobya (not as clean looking as the Bitfenix cables). The Bitfenix cables have one line that branches out on 3 points along the way, the Phobya's are star-like and branch out from 1 central point. These last ones are the ones in the pics of the finished fans with stickers. Whichever cable I end up using, I'll probably cut them to the correct length.
I've now got 2 Noiseblocker intake fans in the front, one on each side's HDD cage and behind a filter. The 3 new fans will also be filtered intakes, probably 2 more in the front and 1 in the back (but I'll see how I like this and may end up with everything in front).
The pass-through molex connectors will be used to create a custom cable with only molex connectors and everything in exactly the right place. Maybe one cable per side to split the load over 2 PSU connections.
I've not looked any further into rotating the HDD cage on the PSU side. The cables look OK twisted 90° so there's really no reason anymore.
I have also played a little with the cables for the CCFLs, making them a whole lot shorter and sleeved. I'll probably post a picture later on today.
