A4000: Deneb's custom cable

Ah Saturday :)

Since I woke up pretty early today I thought of doing some boring but essential stuff like making the custom USB cable that would go from Deneb to the USB header of my 5.25 bracket.

Since I don't like flat ribbon cables and I wanted 8 wire cable I salvaged one of my many UTP cables for the job. I measured the cable putting it in the path that I wanted and I was ready for some soldering. Connector's haven't been put straight to the cable but instead on a tiny veroboard to hold it steady on both ends. Ofc thermal tubing was attached for better stability.





I think it will be just fine for the job... Time to install to the 5.25 bracket's USB header.



...then putting the cable above the DVD-RW and follow Daughterboard's holder



...and finaly mounted on Deneb :)



Pretty neat don't you think? Finally I had to make some testing to check if both headers worked as they should!




Yep! It worked just fine in both USB positions! One more boring stuff done :)

Soon more to come.
