I also have the HX850 and had a really tough time at the beginning. I tried several staple methods and even bought the $12 FrozenCPU tool. Nothing worked until I read about the 2-staple L-shape method.

Rip off 2 staples that are still glued together and bend one end to make an L-shape. All you need are two of these. Stick one of them on each side of the atx pin as such:

Press down on each of them to compress the little wings on the pin and give the cable a slight tug to pull it out.

After some practice you will get the hang of it.

I'm finally done with my mod and sleeving (until I get my SSD and new GPU that is smile.gif)

This is the last upgrade I'll be doing in the Cosmos. I love the case but the cable management is horrible. I think I did the best I could do. I'll be posting a build log soon. Enjoy!

P.S. I used MDPC B-Magic small and SATA type and FurryLetters Black clean cut for the rest.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! +rep This worked and it popped right out. I'm gonna have to buy some more staples biggrin.gif

But does anyone have a concrete answer of whether this will void the warranty? I googled it and found threads here, on xtremesystems, and on corsair's forums, all saying yes and no. There doesn't seem to be a consistent answer. Sent an email to corsair, but just wondering what you guys have been told. Don't wanna kill the 7 year warranty...

Wasn't doubting you Mate. Just relating my experience with stubborn Corsair connectors. cheers.gif

I might've worded it better though. redface.gif

Thanx...Glad you got it to work. Big relief, right? When I popped my 1st one out it felt like dropping a load after being constipated for weeks...HAHAHAH!

Regarding the PSU warranty, most people claim that as long as the unit itself is untouched (sticker is not removed), the warranty is still intact. This post here documents a reply back from a Corsair rep:

Absolutely gorgeous and a fantastic sleeve combo biggrin.gif
