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!!!<br><br>
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.<br><br>
So here is the end result:<br><a href="http://picturepush.com/public/2903870" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www2.picturepush.com/photo/a/2903870/1024/Black-Pearl-%28Lian-Li-V2000%29/caths-007.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><a href="http://picturepush.com/public/2903865" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www2.picturepush.com/photo/a/2903865/1024/Black-Pearl-%28Lian-Li-V2000%29/caths-003.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><a href="http://picturepush.com/public/2903866" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www3.picturepush.com/photo/a/2903866/1024/Black-Pearl-%28Lian-Li-V2000%29/caths-004.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><a href="http://picturepush.com/public/2903867" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www4.picturepush.com/photo/a/2903867/1024/Black-Pearl-%28Lian-Li-V2000%29/caths-005.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br>

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...<br><br>
Put the sleeving up on a coat hanger hanging off a push-pin holding a ski resort map. Ghetto. Lol.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2563/3988011037_2502ee2b82_b.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3510/3988012827_ae95fd8bed_b.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>

It's not ghetto unless it's done with duct tape.

I disagree I like to see random stuff from the yard. Example rocks, sticks, mail boxes, old tires.

Blower held in with duct tape, and a piece of copper wire tied to the back of the case. $1 mod that took 7C off my GPU load temp. Win.

All of my fans are held on with zip ties. That's about the extent of my ghetto at the moment.<br><br>
I do have a ghetto-as-hell DVD drive around here. I took the drive out of a DVD player, popped a housing and bezel on it and stuck it in my machine.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

That's before I rewired everything. My case isn't ghetto anymore, but that's how it used to look <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">
