Thank you! glad you like it! I am quite a fan of the setup you are building as well, it looks really nice. I have thought about doing that myself several times, probably will when I am done with school.

This may sound a little silly

How are you sleeving the 6pin/8pin GPU power connectors when they have capacitors conveniently () placed 3cm from the connector?

I was planning on using extensions and just sleeving them...but it looks as though you have sleeved the stock cables.

Appologies if this has already been explained in the last 161 pages

They are not capacitors. They are ferrite rings that simply go around the cables. Supposedly they help with electrical interference, but they are really unneccessary. You can either just take the cables out of the connectors and pull them through the ring after removing the heat shrink from over it, or just crush the ring with a pair of pliers and cut the shrink off.

Or you can do like I did. It's a pain to get 6 sleeved cables through but entirely worth it.Have to trim some of the excess shrink from around it though.

Any new pics KBMX?

SLACKER!

I wired up LEDs'(gonna have to power them with dedicated 3.3v) wired up Leakdown test link, pulled the Roswill 500w PSU out of the front room(sitting on shelf collecting dust ) AND tidied up the living room, downloaded multiple files and have provided benificial assistance to other OCN members.

This just will not do.

How hard is it to wire up LEDs to a mains power source? I keep thinking that some white LEDs would look good on my desk, shining from the underside of a shelf, like a kind of strip of them.
