I'm about to do that same thing. Gotta get my shopping list together. Not looking forward to the double wires. eh-smiley.gif Are you creating new wires or sleeving your existing wires? Will you be using new terminals?

I'm doing the existing wires. If I mess up I can always make my own. I might end up doing that eventually anyway. But sleeving the existing I feel will be easier for my first time because not all the wires are one to one. So I just do one at a time so I don't mix them up!

High quality sleeved psu cables look 10x better than the oem ones available.

Been struggling with the problem that Scythe Glide Streams bring to the task of sleeving up to the hub instead of from the rim when it suddenly hit me that what I really need to be doing is seperating the fan from the sleeving by replacing the fan cable with a connector right there on the rim.

Here's a bodge-up of what I mean.



This would make the fan cable lengths and sleeving independent of the fan selection. It would also allow us to concentrate on the real problem of sleeving fans, which is the lack of a braid size to match 7/0.2mm fan wire.

With my custom wiring I actually have three options:

1. Re-sleeve existing cables on my AX760i (soon to be upgraded to an AX1500i).

2. Re-sleeve Corsair's single braided cable upgrade kit later (after I enjoyed them a bit, not jumping into custom until everything else is done like the watercooling, which may take some time).

3. Make my own wires.

Honestly I don't know the all the pros and cons to each option.

Noiseblocker fans have something like that.

My plan all along. As what happens when you move fan positions or change cases? You need to just fashion a different length connector cable that's all. Flexibility wise it makes no sense to make the fan and its cable all one piece.

It's interesting that they should put a female socket on there instead of a male plug when they can use the fan to obviate the need for a shielded connector (I only used a shielded connector in my example cos my soldering is way out of practise). It means all your fan wires will have to be extensions with bulky - and not so easy to find - shielded male connectors on them. I suppose they were just putting a foot in the water by modding their own standard fans. It really needs a fan designed for the purpose, because doing this yourself is not straight forward.

Noiseblocker supplies two extensions with each fan. One is 20cm and one is 30cm, and can be joined to make 50cm. They are both sleeved to a decent quality, with the male end being the unshielded type, so not bulky at all.
