Cool I'm assuming you used something like autocad/solidworks to design them and just have a company laser cut them? i will be looking to do something similar on a building im doing with the same case.

Great job! Excellent guide for cable modding and management.

If it is possible, could you please provide a list of all the material, including tools, to start doing cable sleeving like you do by ourselves?

I can't wait to try by myself.

Many thanks in advance.

Beautiful cable management! Excited to see the midplate! thumb.gif

It's looking great so far. I'll be checking your cable guide too

Can you list the exact types of tools you are using in your cable video?

I am familiar with a couple of them and the lighter goes without explanation but the wire stripper you are using I have not seen before and it looks like the stripper and what you are using to widen the pin looks to be the same?

Just curious as I really want to start doing my own cable sleeving as I start trying to elevate my PC building skills.

the wire stripper is similar to this one

https://www.amazon.com/Knipex-1101160-End-Type-Wire-Strippers/dp/B003RWS8RU/ref=sr_1_80?s=power-hand-tools&ie=UTF8&qid=1503933440&sr=1-80&keywords=wire+stripper

which to be fair is more of a professional tool and not something most beginners would use since standard pre gauged strippers tend to have less danger of cutting conductors....

the crimp tool again looks like a fairly standard one similar to this https://www.amazon.com/Voilamart-Professional-Insulated-Terminals-Crimping/dp/B01N0Q9ZUM/ref=sr_1_29?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1503933537&sr=1-29-spons&keywords=crimping+tool+pc&psc=1

although the exact one will be determined by the gauge of the wires and the size of the contacts your crimping


also apologies for the amazon links there the simplest for me to grab for the USA since i'm in the UK, most tools are available elsewhere for cheaper prices /


@op

the mod looks good, i used ot hate having to custom make cable looms.... not that its difficult i'm just lazy XD

I use solidworks, and lasercut them yes. Then I just drilled and tapped the rear to support M4 threads.

Glad you like it!
All the tools, and stuff you need can be found on the links in the description of the video (e22.biz and pexon pcs). I think they are both out of crimpers, but those can be found on highflow.nl.

Then you "just" need wire, terminals for what you want to do (male/female). If you want to make extensions, then you need to sleeve one end with female, and the other with male terminals. If you want to make completely custom cables like I did here, you need female terminals in both ends (at least for Corsair PSU's. I also think all other modular PSU's uses male pins on the PSU end.) Depending on how much you want to sleeve, you will need around 40 meters of wires and 40 meters of sleeving. But measure up with some string before you order (measure each run, multiply by how many wires, add some for scrap and trial.)

Nanotm posted a good reply above. The only thing is that I would get a crimper from highflow.nl, e22.biz or pexon pcs. The crimper is the last thing you want to cheap out on.

stop posting on here and get on with it then biggrin.gif

(just kidding)

as to the crimper I didn't say I would buy one of those XD i'd rather use a pair of pliers than them but then I prefer solder connections than mechanical ones, which is probably why I hate doing wiring looms lol

Post more pics of the inside. I'd love to see more of that metal tubing and fittings!
