Yup.

You're better off shortening the fan cable(s) and creating your own fan splitter and sleeving that.

Check the sleeving forum. A much better forum for sleevings and such.

Let me try this again:
How far are the connectors from eachother on the HDD Cage Assy?

Most cloth sleeving should be very flexible, while most plastic sleevings are more stiff (at least by my experience).

Sometimes plastic is more flexible than cloth. Take this example, old HX750 cables are uber flexible when compared to default EVGA cables I have on 1200 P2. It's no contest in this case. I have both and moment I started connecting EVGA cables I said WTH is this?! EVGA default sleeving is so rigid it's pain to get cable(s) into some tight places. I think that they think you'll buy their sleeved cables anyway for extra 80E/90$. Considering CableMod products, more expensive that EVGA cable set, but they offer more logical cable segmentation: SATA power comes in batches of 2&4 not 3. WTH you need 3 cables for if any (usable) RAID array need 2 or 4 or 8,12&16 (before anyone jumps that RAID 5 need only 3 drives blah, blah, I know that; today it's madness to run R5 in any capacity and anyway you need at least 6 HDDs to fully utilize R5 array advantages). Mention RAID... and I digress wildly.biggrin.gif

...

As for you question with regard to length. As TH10A owner. 60cm you should be just fine. I've tested that shortest signaling cable for HDDs running directly from motherboard (or from RAID AIC 55+) is 50+cm to the top or bottom of PSU segment of the case. 40-45 cm is too short to reach top/bottom cage for 16 or 32 drives (assuming 4 cages). With power 60 should be just fine and 70 for added margin of error or if you will route it in shall we say eccentric way. wink.gif

About dead on at 3cm apart

Most commonly done would be each fan individually sleeved and shortened to length which go to a fan splitter (hub) mounted close by......
then taking just a single cable back to the fan controller / power source

Daisy chaining can look good too, if done correctly wink.gif
Just make sure to check the total power draw of the daisy chained fans, and don't exceed your controller output, or the size of the wire that you use to make the harness.

Sleeving the whole thing isn't so bad. Paracord is harder for this than Telios since it's 3 little wires put side by side though. But I did both. Just depends on if you have an area to hide the excess cable or if you don't care.

While we're talking about sleeving, how long should most of my cables be for my S5? I want to custom sleeve a few, but I don't know the lengths..

Costs me $30 per cable.

Or yeah, I can do my own cables, but then I need to track down the right parts.
The connector is easy: http://www.moddiy.com/products/TKG-Premium-SATA-Power-Easy-Crimp-Connector-%28Black%29.html
The cable, not so much: http://www.moddiy.com/categories/Electrical-Wire/
Never seen crimp connectors quite like those. Interesting.
For the SATA power, I use 18 AWG. If you like a little thinner insulation use the UL 1007 .0403 like this:

From when I did my S5, I ordered everything about 30cm except GPU cables, which were 40cm, from Joey @ Ensourced. He did a nice job! thumb.gif

Get the CPU and 24 pin cables a little longer than I did. Hell get everyone longer than I did so you have some room to play. I just wanted tight cables for mine.
