I had ordered the sleeving about a week ago and kudos to Nils at MDPC, the sleeving is already here in India.
So, presenting the color scheme for this build, like you guys didnt already know, but here it is:
Unluckily due to too many issues, I am unable to sleeve the PCIE cables. The Antec 850W comes with a splitter on the 8 Pin, which goes into another 8 pin and all my sleeving knowledge and practice till now has not helped me to clear this issue. Secondly, it just looks disastrous when connected to the GPU, so I decided that this is the only part where I will have to use extensions to overcome this problem.
Adding a bit of grey also added a bit highlight to the black and made the transition a bit easier:
Next I need to work on the 24 Pin and 8 Pin. I have already sleeved the black cables, only the highlights are left now.
@DiGiCiDAL, I also put in some work on the mid plate and I am proud to say that it is now ready. I cut off about an inch from the new piece to make sure it fits into the case. The mistake I made in my first try with the new piece is to measure from end to end, not taking into consideration the lip at both ends of the case. This lip made it impossible for me to install the mid plate, without putting it in diagonally. And with the motherboard installed, thats more or less impossible.
Cutting an inch of the whole pice makes it easier to install straight up and also easier to remove. I guess we live and learn.
I am still at sea with the GPU as I returned the previous one and got a refund, but now I dont have anything..
I would like to give a shout out to # Lutro0 @ Lutro0
Without his video sleeving guide it just would not have been possible for me to finish off these many cables this quickly.Edited by mav2000 - 6/26/13 at 11:08pm
