That's what keeps the high frequency switching noise out of your AC supply mains, and if it's not right at the PSU, the line in between can radiate a lot of noise.

I've seen guys just discard it, or try moving it to the rear panel.

Update
biggrin.gif
!

Created an "intake" so i had no airflow isseus with the psu




Then i sawed of the mounting side of the psu INCLUDING the inline filter, so its all 1 part and not 1 thing here and 1 thing there (oh wait, xD! )




Today also came 2 packages in the mail, 15meter of red paracord sleeving and 50x152cm matte black vinyl (still wanted to try that and i kinda like it)

Cleaned the front, no more fans there, because the hole innerside will be random build
tongue.gif


* matte black blends in perfectly with brushed alu!

My psu was already sleeved with MDPC sleeving, but i wanted to go heathshrink less, so i took paracord
smile.gif
.






when sleeving all wires 1 at a time i created this wire pass thru.

*also ripped a piece of metal away so i can let the wires guide at the back of the motherboard panel:)

also my top a step further, more about that tomorrow.


see u with the next update
