ARRRRGH

So I received an email about the case. 1 week delay, which sucks but compared to the 7 weeks estimated, its nothing. I placed the order on June 30th, putting us 6 weeks into the maximum 8 weeks that it could get here.

Tomorrow is my 7 weeks for my SMA8. This wait is killing me.

I've spent the past few days sleeving my stuff. I ordered a few things, including 75ft of teleios sleeving from mainframe and an atx pin remover. It took forever and I made alot of mistakes, built it was totally worth it and it looks pretty cool, IMO.

The tools



The sleeving (teleios grey)




The completed 8 pin eps cable in my air 540. Pretty cool, but I had to snip off the capacitors. The capacitors reduced voltage ripple a bit, but electricity in Washington is so clean and so cheap that its negligible.


The pin remover. I originally ordered one on eBay, but it hasn't even shipped yet so I ordered one a few days ago and got this in the mail. Pretty handy and nifty tool.



In the middle of taking off the pins/removing the cables. This took forever and I actually cut myself a few times when the cables shot out of the connector.



More updates coming, I still need to figure out how to manage the cables without cable combs, but at the same time make it have an organized messy look.

here's a couple tutorials on cable stitching/sewing. I've never tried it but doesn't look too difficult. I have done a ton of sleeving though and it does get easier with practice.

The motherboard arrived!




Beautiful 3.1 USB and PS/2



I only have 2 sticks of ram in the system, other 2 are in my other rig. When I was testing my 24 pin, I didn't want everything to get fried, so I took out some components.



The Swiftech apogee doesn't fit into the motherboards screw holes, so I godda do some more research.

I love the way these heat sinks look, but I really don't like the stickers on the Ethernet ports, so I'll probably peel those off or something.









I still want to wait until I have the case labs case to put this motherboard in. More updates coming soon, I'm sleeving some more stuff soon.

Worked a ton on the fans. I'm REALLY not happy with the way a few of them turned out, but I learned from my mistakes and will redo them.
For instance, I accidentally cut one of the sleeves too short, and had to get an extra big piece of heat shrink to attempt to cover it up, but the damage was already done.
Look at the left one for an example of how not to sleeve.
