These kind of services are really great! If possible I would need cable for Da-2 to Thunder3-barrel + Pcie 8-pin for my Radeon RX470 nitro+

Actually both of them looked so good that I couldn't decide but when I googled a bit I found soradore's 6+2 pcie cable from eBay and ordered it straight away.

Now I just have to wait till all the parts arrive 🙂

Hey @Dschijn,

I'm from germany and I just ordered an Akitio Thunder3 box. I'd need something like this:  http://kareonkables.com/products/dell-da-2-akitio-thunder2-box-62-pin-pci-e-with-25mm-adapter and since I'm really impatient to get my setup started I didn't want to order it from US. Are you still available? How long would it take you to build it and whats the cost?

I ordered the cable you linked and it took a week to receive it (I live in Sweden). Heads up though, you wont be able to close the chassi with it (without modification).

Yeah. My cable probably went through Germany as well. It usually does when I'm ordering from the US.

Better try and get the other cable since I am not faster nor cheaper.

Hi @Dschijn,

I've been using the standard AC adapter to power my Thunder3, which is probably not ideal. I'd like to find an adapter that will allow it to be powered from a fully modular ATX PSU like the Corsair RM series. Most adapters and converters I've seen have a female end, but I'd prefer a male end to be able to plug directly into the PSU. This is a screenshot of the back of the PSU for reference: 17-139-056-10.jpg. Is that something you would be able to make? I'm located in the US. Thanks!
