Update time for the wiring, finally got the 24 pin finished and the shroud installed this week.Components have been installed for a test fit, I have all the wiring to tidy up once everything is in place. I didn’t even test fit the shroud before glueing it all up, confident that my measurements were right. To get the shroud into the case, with the 8 pin GPU wiring pre-installed meant removing the top panel and removable radiator tray then slotting it in from the top. I have removed one of the be quiet! basement covers to get the wiring through to get to the PSU. Next up was to tackle the 24 pin, I had a small issue with the install and BitFenix were good enough to send out a replacement cable, meaning that I installed this whilst in the case. To gain access I removed the front panel to feed the cables through, as you can see, space is a bit tight here. So now they are all in place they will need tidying up to make them perfectly straight with my custom combs. This is getting close to finishing now, just one more plate to make to cover the pre-existing cable holes then it’s on to vinyl.
