Thanks! smile.gif

It took me a while to figure out since cable lacing is not really as common as it used
to be (the curse of zip ties rolleyes.gif ), and information is therefore relatively scarce,
but with the help of a few videos and some reference manuals by NASA and a few other
sources I finally arrived at this version. I had also looked at Frank's version, which is
pretty damn awesome, but it just took me forever to do and since I have many cables
in my build which will be visible (and therefore need to be laced) I decided to try if I
could simplify things a bit and find a technique that was a tad faster while still providing
me with the desired look.

I've actually made a tutorial on this. The audio is a bit on the low side (I'll fix that
in future vids), but it should be easy enough to follow.

EDIT: Forgot: I just got the crimp terminals I've ordered form Lutro0, so I will
be doing most of the remaining cables this week and should have an update on the
major cabling by the end of the week.

Hehe, thanks man, I appreciate that. smile.gif I'm currently doing the last primary power cables,
so I should have an update on that by tomorrow or Sunday, depending on how much
real life interferes. biggrin.gif

Major Power Cables Finished


So, this is what about 40 hours of cabling have gotten me: One 24 pin, two EPS 8 pins,
one PCI-E 8 pin and four PCI-E 6 pins. I'm not completely done with them (I need to
reinforce the 24 pin's lacing a bit), but the main part is done when it comes to power
cables.

The GPU Cable

This is what the GPU cable looked like before lacing.

CPU1 + PCI-E Aux

These are the cables for the CPU1 power delivery (8 pin EPS + 6 pin PCI-E) and the SR-2's
PCI-E auxiliary 6 pin for the PCI-E slots themselves. Makes for 20 wires in total. First I crimped
their M/B terminals:

aw--helios--2013-07-06--02--CPU1-PCIE-aux-wires.jpeg


After that I colour-coded them to know which pair of wires needed to be sleeved with which
paracord colour. Doing that 20 wire cable is pretty much the only thing I did this week. All in
all it was about 15 hours of work (cutting, crimping, sleeving, lacing). The PSU side crimps
were only crimped onto the wires once the whole harness had been laced so that the
wires had the right length (obviously the outer wires in the bends will have to be longer).

Main Cables

And these are most of the major power cables. What's missing here is the GPU power delivery
because I'd already tied that to the case when I took this picture. As you can see the cables
are all stuck together because of the way I had to do the PSU side of things. How I organize
the PSU connectors is determined by the PSU's power rail design and connector layout.

The harness is surprisingly stiff (considering Silicone wire is very floppy) and holds its shape
pretty well with all the lacing.

Mounted


And this is how the whole harness looks when it's mounted into the case. The messy bit above
the PSU will still be cleaned up a bit, plus most of it will be hidden.

Hiding the Messy Bits

Besides the side door, the reservoir mounting plate will hide those bits of my cabling which I
haven't tidied up to insane levels.

20 Wire Run

And a glamour shot of that 20 wire cable. I know I could have routed this cable through a hole
which is situated pretty much perfectly, but since I spend this much time on my cables anyway
I thought I might as well make them a proper feature.

(click image for full res)
aw--helios--2013-07-06--07--CPU1-PCIE-aux-run.jpeg


That's it for today. I have to admit I look forward to doing something else besides cables
now. There's still some cable work to be done (the pumps, fans and some other small
parts), but the major work is done now. 40 hours of cable work is quite enough for now. biggrin.gif


Next Up

I'll be starting to experiment with the copper tubing next week.


Thanks for stopping by. smile.gif
