Thanks - T

yeah you could paint the Ram slots black. The SATA Ports could have black caps put over them and the ones you are using could be covered in black heat shrink! the PCIE slot will not be seen because it will be covered by a video card. So see I solved all your problems!!!! I bet your wallet will be proud of me???

SMALL UPDATE!!!



Looking at what I've done, it's way too tacky to stay, but I am pressed for time to get this going before I have to retire my laptop from it's current struggles, so I can go back and fix this stuff later.




First... those white sleeves are pissing me off. Gotta change that soon...

BUT I DIGRESS:
There's the overall routing for the PCIe and ATX 8-pin.

Yeah, I know the extensions have sleeving showing and the custom PSU cables are heatshrinkless; I'm trying to get something going here, and I can't abide many more stalls, so I need to run with it as is, and I will go back and fix up the extensions soon!





Here are the cable clamps, attached with screws to the case, holding the cable bundles!








I sleeved my Bitspower temp sensor in my funky green / black speckled paracord!
I'm going to leave it full length so I can snake it where I need it to go.





Just obliterated the end where it comes to the actual port / sensor with super glue. Seems to have worked!







Criticisms and suggestions are welcome!

Thanks - T

How hard is it to paint ram slots and pci ones?

From what I learned asking the same question:
You take an old RAM stick and something that can fill a PCIe slot, and stick them in their respective places. Then you tape around very carefully, with the easiest method being a patterned cutout and tape together.
Then you use something like Krylon Indoor / Outdoor spray paint to detail what you want!

I don't know that there's any more or less to it, but I guess we can look for some guides on here! I haven't made it that far yet... rolleyes.gif

It is looking good T... Don't worry about the cables like you said you can come back later and redo them one at a time.
post #416 of 572
case looks good dude, if anything you could sell me those sleeved cables and buy shorter ones thumb.gif

Coming together nicely T! thumb.gif

Just a suggestion, but it looks like you could raise your pump/top combo up another set of fan holes like I did. This would give you enough space to route your wires behind the pump and not have to run as many extension...just a suggestion though, it's looking great! thumb.gif

I know your pump is mounted via brackets to your radiator's empty fan holes, right?
mine's bolted through two holes I drilled in the case divider / support wall...
Is that what we're talking about? tongue.gif
