Which is pretty understandable considering the fact that it would be an even greater feat of engineering getting enough hardware into a small case in order to come anywhere close to needing a 1.5kW PSU to power it! smile.gif

I'm actually surprised that someone hasn't gone ahead and made a 'specialty' PSU for some of the monster builds people are doing these days (like those crazy guys with TX10's biggrin.gif) that is 2-3kW output and requires a dedicated 20A circuit to feed it. lachen.gif Mark my words... it's coming.

My plan today was at the very least to get the 24pin ATX cable made and sleeved for my Video/Gaming computer but OMG. I struggled at first i could not get the pins crimped right after a couple of hours I finally figured this out. mad.gifHard to do this being old and of bad eye sight!!mad.gif

Then originally I was going to go shrinkless on sleeving but the plans changed on this because I was struggling with this so much. I got frustrated and wanted to make progress so I am going to use heat shrink this time and will take the time later to learn how to do it with out the shrink.

Well I go some goodies in the mail today from Hellfire PC biggrin.gif that I will be showing tomorrow and hopefully some sleeved cables.


Also got some more fan testing done for myself also. but that is about it for today. don't beat me please.
lol. You're a young'n. tongue.gif
Did you get the crimping figured out? It can be easier if you precrimp the minifit jr pins, like maybe 1 click on the crimper, then insert the wire and finish the crimp.
I sit down and precrimp a bunch of pins before I start.
I only do this with the ATX (minifit jr) pins, though. If you need any help let me know. Everyone has to find a work flow they are comfortable with, and I don't do it exactly like others do since I prefer to stick the wire inside the precrimped pin, then place it in the crimper and finish crimping.

For smaller pins I slip them over the wire and precrimp with needlenose pliers then insert in crimper. But like I say everyone needs to find a way that's comfortable for them. thumb.gif

Thanks for this Mandrix but I think I finally have it figured out so that I can get it do. Like you said I precrimp them with needlenose pliers and this seems to help a lot.

Don't give up on shrinkless! It looks so clean and is pretty easy to do. The secret is to have the lengths of cord right so that they go just a bit over the part that crimps into the plastic shield of the wire. Then when you melt it and roll the melted plastic between your fingers it catches on the metal and won't slip out. I stole and modified an image from Nils at MDPC-X to show you how its done.

Actually as you will see in my below post I am having problems all around and will temporarily go in another direction until i can learn to make my own cables.

OK update I promised. Are you ready and I hope you enjoy!!



Ok first of all can anyone tell me what the bottom pins are for??



Ok first of all can anyone tell me what the bottom pins are for??



I have spent a lot of time to crimp these wires and actually tested the four of them hooked up to the PSU but as soon as I tried to train the wires this is what I ended up with!!!! mad.gif So I have made the decision since I have nice sleeved wires that came with the PSU and I want to make progress on this build that I will use the wires that came with the PSU to start with and then make my own wires as I learn how and upgrade and improve these. This should not be a problem as I have plenty of room to hide them. and still make computer look nice to strafe with and this can be project for later..



OMG I can not remove the 3 Bay cover without taking apart the case!!!! mad.gif



Then I get to looking and all I need to do is remove the plates to put in what ever I want and then replace the plates!!! biggrin.gif



See what I came up with to install the 6 by 5 1/4 bay for my SSD's.



Pretty smart I think??? thumb.gif



What dose everyone think??



Do I need to take these drive holders apart and paint them all white?? or dose the black contrast nice?? or wait until I finish and then see??



Pictures of my nice and neat work area!!! Sleeveing and heat shrink Material l!!!




One test set up where I am using a 100watt heat load to test fans on a EK-CoolStream RAD XTC (140) and actuall I have this set up to use 100 watt or 250 watt!! biggrin.gif



My other test set up where now I am testing a EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360) with a 375 watt heat load to see best fans to use!!!



Another nice neat area where I am using my laptop to record the data I get from my 2 temp data loggers so i can have 2 test set ups at a time and can show actual temps and what happens.



A box from PPC full of fittings and fans.



I actually ordered 10 of every black bitspower fitting from PPC.



Plus 120 monsoon white with black rings compressor fittings and 10 ea of the rotary light fittings both 45 and 90 !!!! biggrin.gifExcessive Insanity Just need to unpack and put in boxes and draws all of these items..





Some more nice pictures of my work space



and how neat and organized this is!! biggrin.gif



It is causing my OCD to go into over drive!!!!buttkick.gif



Another Pile of parts!!! on shelves at least organized.



One of the high performance fans I ordered from PPC to test. so far noise level not so bad will have more information on these soon.

also sorry but tomorrow I will test the 140mm rad with the 20mm shrouds to see if it makes difference and let you guys know.

All I have to say is help and answer my questions please

and is this Excessive Insanity

Ok nice pump top that was provided to me by Hellfire Toyz






a Pump Top



a Swiftech Dual Small Form Factor Pump Housing - White (MCP35X2-WT)



A picture of what is in the box!!



sorry but I dont have pumps yet so this is just a picture of the parts!!! Mandrix has me interested in this pump!!!

But I have some good News for me anyway. I had some problem with leaking fittings on aplphacool female extenders with phobya barbs and Hank with PPC has contacted both companies and offered to replace if I sent them back to him.. But I found it was due to the treads on the Phobya fittings being too long for the extenders and I did not want to send back but yet Hank has offered 3 or 4 times to replace this if I send leaking ones to him. He also has found that this is a common problem with these items. again the best customer service you can get and he is actually going to send me 2 Swiftech MCP35X-BK™ 12 VDC Pump to go with the pump top that hellfire toyz is providing. I am not special I have done a lot of bisness with PPC and they have helped me with ordereds that Paypal cancelled so I could keep my discount and I have done a lot of business there because price good customer service better and everything I have bought has been ebay, PPC or Newegg. Except a few things I was impatient to get....

so a Big shout out and do your business with these to companies!!

Pfffffff Took me 30 minutes to find your build log.
You need a storage manager for sure. Often when i'm building i put my tools around me and because of my few parts it hapens that i cand find them.
I jumped from page 8 to 87 i will take a look at your buildlog thies eavening.

Keep up the good :thumb:work.

Very nice!

I'm sorta in the same boat with cabling. I had mine custom made not because I can't sleeve (I already learned that) but because I can't custom crimp very well, and I didn't want to waste material!

Keep it up, man....





Thanks - T
