Well I need to hide a little bit of messiness right above the PSU, but even that
will be visible through the front grill, so there really isn't much room for not being
tidy.

But yes, I thought about hiding that long 20 wire cable on the bottom in the lower
compartment, but then I thought it would fit very nicely where it is now. Of course
I kinda forgot that I would be doing 7 hours of lacing on that cable alone, but hey,
it's not like I had anything better to do yesterday...

Sorry man, she's spoken for. If it's any consolation she has rather expensive tastes
and requires lots of work to get set up and running. So there's a lot of effort and
money going into this relationship.

I just hope it all pays off in the end and she doesn't just break up with me...

No worries, it happens. Luckily, there's no expiration date.

Have fun, and thanks for stopping by.

GREAT JOB on the cables alpenwasser ,
That looks so nice I think that could be classified as nerd porn.
All the hours you put in to those cables are well worth it.

Haha, thanks!
Yeah I'm pretty happy with the result. Relaced the 24 pin today to get a better bend and
strengthen the lacing.

Various Small Bits

Various Small Bits


I've been asked if I could provide some info on the Platimax for those who are
considering sleeving this PSU as well.


The GPU Cable


The GPU power cables on the Platimax consist of one 12 pin connector on the PSU side
(six 12 V pins and six ground pins) and two 6+2 pin connectors on the GPU side. Since
that's four more connectors on the GPU side than on the PSU side, the additional ground
wires are clamped together on their way back to the PSU.

(click image for full res)



GPU Cable - Ground Wire Clamp

There are two of these clamps per GPU cable, one for each 6+2 pin connector. I haven't
really found a nice way to get around these so what I did is simply remake the entire
cable, as you've seen in my previous post. Since my wires needed to be a lot longer
anyway this wasn't a big deal.

(click image for full res)



The 24 Pin + 8 Pin EPS


The 24 pin cable is bundled with one of the 8 pin EPS cables. There is another 8 pin
EPS which you can run separately, and which also has a 4 pin for the CPU on it, should
you need that instead.

(click image for full res)



And the other end of the above. There are a few double wires, the most annoying pair
being the ones stacked right on top of each other. Not very nice...

(click image for full res)



My Own GPU Cable - PSU Side

Since the Titan has a 6 pin and an 8 pin on its PCB you end up with 14 wires. I took the
additional two ground wires of the PCI-E 8 pin connector and ran them to a different
connector's ground pins on the PSU side.

The Raystorms


And now for the pr0n part of today's evening. I've polished the raystorms to a mirror shine.
It's not yet absolutely perfect, but it's not much further...

(click image for full res)



Other Stuff


I'm still experimenting with the copper tubing. I've needed to order some additional parts
for that, so it will take me a week or two until I can continue. Until then I'm a bit stalled.
Unless I think of something else to do, we'll see...


As always, thanks for stopping by.

Haha, to be honest there's lots of creative pauses, walking my dog etc.

But building this with a buddy would probably be pretty awesome, it's a bit of a shame
I don't know anyone personally to share this hobby with. Ah well, I have you guys...

May I ask how you're planning to run your pumps? I'm a big fan of the idea of dual pumps. I've been looking at the RP-452X2 bay res from Koolance but I can't find the PMP-450 anywhere and I fancy a tube res anyway.
