Thanks.

I sleeved them myself. But you can buy the sleeving just about anywhere on the internet.

So just clip the cable from the power supply and put the sleeves on then resolder the wires?

NO NO

They make a tool in order to remove the plug from the wires.

well... I have to.

Why did you take it apart?

It's not what you do, it's how well you do it.

I am just being a tease right now, a lot of people on the internet want to know what I am up too with this build.

Update:

Dropped of the case here today:

Thanks Rodney

I have been a long time fan of you and your site and the work you do. I own a PS3, for the Blu-ray player and Netflix :D

I game on my PC and enjoy it but I also really love building machines... this hobby isn't cheap but it is so much fun.

Damn rights! If consoles were not so cheap and easy for the masses... well I guess that's their only selling point. Whenever my friends talk up their games on consoles I love shooting them down.

Definitely not cheap thats for sure, but well worth it.
