Thanks u two.

Today, my supplier sent me pictures of steel pieces before bending.

Taurean

Taurean

Taurean

And recevied 40 meters of sleeving, colonial blue. Should go very well together with blue accents on the motherboard.

Taurean

Can you help me with choosing RAL color ? I decided for silver but there are so many RAL colors available; 9006, 7035, 7001, 7040 or 9018?

Thanks for stopping by thumb.gif

RAL colors,

7001 Silver-grey - darkest of them all
7035 Light-grey - lightest gray
7040 Window-gray - think this maybe has a very small tint of blue in it
9006 Blank aluminum color - second darkest
9018 Papyrus white - close to white

Is the paint for those steel pieces?

Then I myself would go with RAL-7001 but really it's personal preference.

Just try to match the color with the wood.

Hello, I was sleeving CX 430 all weekend, it was going slowly, but then my ATX pin extractor broke and found out, that pins can be removed with stamples and that accelerated my speed a lot! It's so easier with stamples. Don't buy tools beacuse they are useless!



Before:

Taurean

I used about 18 meters just for the ATX 24:

Taurean

This is when my extractor tool broke and tried stample method.

Taurean

ATX 24 done, I promise that it will look better when placed into case!

Taurean

High quality control. It worked like a charm in first time! I was so happy! I was like, wondering, will it even start?! And then it did!

Taurean

8 pin EPS for CPU power also done.

Taurean

This is a PCI-E 6 pin connector. Originally CX430 has 6+2 pin connector but I won't need it for my build, it will probably be a 7790.

Taurean

And done.

Taurean

Taurean

At the end, I wasn't sure if i would like more work or be happy that thi is behind me biggrin.gif

However, steel pieces will be mine tomorrow..(do you remember that song; tomorrov never comes? biggrin.gif) I am so excited.

Thanks for stopping by, let me know what do you think and be happy all day long.

Thanks mate. Yesterday I got idea, what if side panels would open with just a slight push, like those kitchen elements and cabinets. It would be so practically, no more bothering, ohh where will I put my side panel, I don't have enough space, I will scratch that beautiful paint job and so on biggrin.gif

They would slide up like a gullwing doors on a merc:

Yep, it matches the blue on the motherboard heatsinks 100%

It's a paracord 550, and I like it more than a PET sleeving that I did in my CranBerry, It's so softy biggrin.gif
