    Am I the only one that hates how power cables make small loops from device to device...

    There perfect fit for my SSD and 2 HDD's

    :D

    P.S.
    Apologize for the Danish mumble jumble... its an inside joke so not important

    If you are wanting to do this for 5'25 drive the distance between the sata connectors should be 1.7inches or slightly more

    I often braid loose cabling inside new cases. The Power/Reset/HDDLed/PWRLed cabling is MUCH easier to handle when you take the two minutes to braid them. If a case also has multiple USB/Audio headers, they get braided as well.

    Nice work. Looks clean.

    Only thing i dont like is its not ALL braided......Honestly i hate flat power cable as well. I wish i had all round possibly even shielded cables. (Which be hard to do it yourself) Is that round tube thing some kind of clip on ferrite?

    I actually did this many, many years ago for GPU cables. They look great when displayed:

    I've never thought of this. My cables are sleaved, but this would be a great idea when I need a more simple solution for building PCs for friends or on the side.

    All I can see when I think about that many Fermi GPUs in that small of a space is just how hot did they get!?

    I believe it is--at least, it looks like one of those things that you sometimes see on TV power cables or VGA cables.
