Part 1 Ė The Package
Today we take a look at A.C.Ryanís Morf UV PSU Modding kit, this kit is made to transform your PSU looks as well as providing better Airflow in the system. Also what makes this different is it includes all you need for the job, letís take a look shall we.
From the packaging you can immediately see that everything is there and is well protected from damage in the packaging †I have chosen UV green for the PSU mod and a Vantec Stealth 520 as the PSU, this is going to bee slightly different as the stealth has a 24 pin connector. Anyway lets get the stuff out and take a closer look.
Included in the package is
- 4 types sleeving (2mm x 3.3, 6mm x 3.3m, 12mm x 1.6m, 13mm x 1.6m)
- 3 types heatshrink (10mm x 30cm, 20mm x 30cm, 25mm x 15cm)
- 10x Molex4pin Female Connectx
- 3x Floppy power Female Connectx
- 1x ATX20pin female Connectx
- 1xP4-12V 4pin Female Connectx
- 1x AUX6pin Female Connectx
- 10x Tie-wrap
- 1x Toolx Pin Remover Molex Universal
- 1x Toolx Pin Remover ATX / P4-12V Female
As you can See there is pretty much more than whatís needed for the job and the tools needed. At this stage I am wondering how 2 do the 24 pin into a 20 pin with no adapter so the first thing to do was the main connectors the 20 pin and 4 pin, Taking the 20pin and the 4 pin adapter off was easy with the tool provided (top one in photo) it took me 10 minutes to do the power leads. I had to shrink rap the 4 leads left over from the 24 pin and put them under the braiding. This took me a little while and was almost completely ruined by me after using the small Heatshrink. Doh (my own fault) so after redoing it I used 3 cable ties to make sure the Heatshrink didnít split again. I must point out this was no fault on the kits side as this was designed for a 20 Pin and I just stuffed the 4 leftover wires from my 24 pin under the shrink so extra cable ties were needed
You can see were I have had to do it on the picture in the right† I had to leave the cable ties on top for it because of it.
Moving onto the Molex connectors was a really easy task with the tool just slide it over the connecter and pull the wire from the rear of it, jugging on ease of the Molex job I would advise anyone doing this doing it one wire at a time† and when you have removed the pins from the Original Molex to tape the pins up in a smooth bundle pointing towards the PSU. This will enable you to Slide the Braiding over the top of the wire easy without it being a struggle.
Now I have done the last one what am I left with well let me show you. Before and after pics
