    Has anyone tried rewiring their power supply to shorten the extra feet of wire between power supply and drives and from drive to drive.

    I have my water cooling lines run as clean as possible and have now turned my attention on shortening the power supply wiring. As the less interferance in air movement, the cooler also the case.

    Does anyone know of the availbility of the tool to remove the wires out of the 12v drive plug/connections, and after shortening the wires the crimping tool to recrimp new connections back on....oh yeah and the availiblity of new connectors and the name of those connectors.

    Less interference in air movement equals cooler case, less cluter and visable wiring equal cleaner custom case.


    yeah.....maybe a little anal BUT:geek:

    Actually ya just need a very small jeweller's screwdriver to push the retaining clips down on the metal connectors and then pull them out of the plastic and a longnose pair of pliers are enough to crimp the new ones on after ya shorten the wires.

    or you can cut sections out then solder the ends back together

    and while were on the subject, is there any reason why I can't remove wires I don't need from the psu (such as the aux. pwr for p4 systems)? I can always solder them back on if i need them...but it wont hurt anything if I chop them off in the meantime?:devil:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    As long as the wires dont touch eachother or ground you should be OK.
