Couple of pix of my work in progress. PCI-E cables left to do.





On a side note, how do you de-pin USB headers? This cable needs sleeving!

'Lift' the plastic tabs with a small flathead screwdriver then pull the wire out. Careful to only 'lift' the tab enough to get the wire out, if you do it too much it's likely to break off.

P.S. Would love to see a close up of your SATA cables wink.gif

Guys - first time sleeving - what do you think of this?

Terrible picture due to flash but the only thing i am not sure about is maybe i should have done the whole of the left PCIE connectors grey?????

Having said that i did only want a flash of grey down one side and not too much...... Does anyone out there actually prefer the way i have done it here to match the 24 pin etc????

Tom

Looks good for a first time sleeve.thumb.gif The left top PCIe connector looks like the black got a little melted, but that might look that way in the pics. Not to be negative, but that one slash of color on one side is not something I would prefer(the sleeve job though still looks good having said that). Honestly though my opinion on style shouldn't matter, because if you like the look/color scheme then that is all that matters. Looking at other peoples work on this thread, I think, helps in getting creative input and gives you more concrete examples of what you like and dislike which in turns helps flush out more creative patterns, schemes, and colors you would like to see in your own work.

Thanks for the heads up - I was trying to press down. Tonight I'll see if I can pop them out by doing it correctly...

Here's a couple of quickly shot close ups of the SATA power cables (I presume those are the ones you meant...)





You can see a little 'oops' there in that last one - a tiny bit of heatshrink on the lower blue wire - those two SSD's are really close together in an Icy Dock SSD holder and I didn't get the spacing correct on my first go and had a tiny bit of bare wire, so a itty bitty bit of heatshrink to make sure it wasn't exposed.

On the heatshrink side - I was really lucky to pick this stuff up at my local Willy's Electronics Supply - it's 3-1 shrink with glue on the insides, so once you shrink it onto that wire, it's not going anywhere!
