Post your "ghetto rigging" shenanigans

Well I could not find a thread dedicated to only posting what you have ghetto rigged, so I thought I would make my own. Post any ghetto cabling, ghetto fan mods, ghetto electrical tape jobs, ghetto holes and lights. ANYTHING GHETTO!!!

I will start this off. I wanted to really declutter my cathode wires so what I did was I just straight up cut off the male molex (since CCFL kits always have a male and female molex) and then i wrapped it all in electrical tape (I will sleeve it later, don't feel like it now.

So here is the end result:





Yup, now that is ghetto ^^^^^^^ Post em up!!

I can see it, a fire waiting to happen. I need to pull out the other 2 pins left in each molex connector from the wires I snipped, if not, I will probably get shocked next time I touch the molex. I can foresee it in my future...if I don't take the pins out.

Back when I was sleeving my PSU...

Put the sleeving up on a coat hanger hanging off a push-pin holding a ski resort map. Ghetto. Lol.






My room was very messy and ghetto looking at this time.

INFO UPDATE:

as to recent questions regarding the white cable terminals i used, they are called European Terminals, mostly because i grew up in germany is why i prefer to use those, i dont like the US style ones that are bare metal and not shielded... get googling on where to get em
