Day 2-Slow goings.
Hello again my package from xoxide came so i have another little update to take up our time while we wait on the main course ^_^
Package from xoxide
alright ill get back to the sleeving, time to do a quick bit of checking on my psu before i order a fan for it
Hmm weird connection ill deffinitly have to be doing some soldering
alrighty so the fans off im going to order a yate loon to replace it
Dang looking at these wires against the side it appears its too tight to fit a side window im going to have to scrap that plan
Hmmm i have no idea how these two come out of the back
check out the way its in if u have any ideas on how it comes off let me know i havnt really done much psu altering before, at worst ill just stick my hands in their and pull until it comes off
alrighty so back to the sleeving
So it appears that the things i was going to sleeve are all unsleevable for the time being.
CCFL's:need to assemble case again before i can gauge whether or not these need to be lengthened first.
Case Power:IS going to need to be extended.
Single unsleeved cable from psu:cant remove molex's.
CCFL's toggle switch:going to need to resolder this first to the new toggle switches once they come.
Case Fans:need molex remover
So im going to buy a molex remover with my order of parts thats coming and get back to this task when everything gets here. although its disheartening to see myself failing at tasks i know it will make it all the sweeter when this is all done.
So heres my revised grocery list
vandal switch $15
Double sided mounting tape $5
Yate Loon $10
Molex Remover $10
rivet gun+rivets $20
Wire stripper $10
Sand paper $20
Paint stuff $40
Tack cloth $5
Grand Total $385
So thats all for now im waiting on some money in the mail and then i will be ordering everything i need for the mods ive mentioned so far with the exception of the mobo, ram, proc, and card. Also im now considering puttin on some aluminum feet and adding a fan between the psu and the hard drive cage on the bottom, ill get back to u guys on that later on.
One question for all you expert modders, i am thinking that i will have to do wire management later on in the build after the paint job and reriveting. Do you guys think that cutting it after its back together could damage the paint job? Thanks in advance for the help whoever can answer this.
Thanks for watching! ^_^Edited by wildfire99 - 8/8/08 at 5:59pm
