Wow, cutting off PSU wires, I have never heard of that. Did it accur to anyone that the lose of those wires could not only create a very real possibility of a short, but also can allow the metal of the wires and in turn the components inside the PSU to corrode quickly? Please, kids at home, do NOT cut PSU wires EVER, its a very dumb thing to do for many more reason than I or the guy in the video have listed, especially when the term "warranty" is in use.
Thanks MonsterMawd for the video, it will help many people out and it even gave me an idea with my PC P&C 750w (No, I'm not going to cut the wires).
^ I have cut of/extend them to correct size, but after the introduction of moduler PSUs I haven't done it for a while. What you need to realize is that doing so WILL void the warranty and you have to be very careful. You must solder all cut ends and cover them with a good layer of electrical tape. A more neater/professional way is to de- solder the wires from PCB, but it depends on the PSU.
A better idea would be to cut holes in the case and reroute wires/ hide wires.
Well, my desk has an octopus coming out of it. I found some great sources for manageing those pc cables around your desk too!, cable safe My friend Dave turned me onto hook & loop velcro cable ties for organizing larger cables, sold here Theres also cable conduit you can use.
Nice work with that!
Monster, I see your AMD special in the background, looks like a monster!
I have been meaning to sort out the cables and the PSU in my case so I'll do that today.
I'll post some pics to show the difference as well!
Nice jobs on the wiring guys.
To me a wiring job is only as neat if the case allows you to and the CoolerMaster Cosmos (got the RC-1000), is not one of them.
Even my old cheap $45 case has better cable routing paths.
The Antec P180 cable management is better than the Cosmos.
Ifor nice Xigmatek cooler. Looks pretty good lucuis, you just might want to rearrange how the 24 pin and other connectors around it come out, you should be able to make more organized and that is one of those areas where you need good cable management.
