Ok guys..this is a quick guide on how to sleeve the USB 3.0 wires in the Prodigy...I put this together in about 30 minutes, so it is definitely not my best sleeving work. it is a little short (used an odd piece.)

This was done using MDPC-X Shade 19 SATA sleeve and heatshrink

Here is the USB panel:


Unscrew the panel from the case side panel (three screws centered on the panel from top to bottom)



Next up is to unscrew the USB connector from the PCB. Each USB connector has 2 small screws:



The little metal bracket that holds the USB connector in place slides right off (It may have some adhesive on it.)



Bracket removed



Because of the size of the sleeve and the USB header, I used a carpenter's pencil to slide in first to give me something to hold onto as I expanded the sleeving.



It will be slow going, but the sleeve will expand over the USB connector



Sleeving on the cable! Success! thumb.gif



Next up is the heatshrink...grabbed my handy dandy heatshrink expander tongue.gif



Cable done...biggrin.gif



Anyways..I hope this helps a few people and as always, comments are welcome. thumb.gif
