Nothing really new to add. I just wanted to give a small update that this project is temporarily on hold.
I've ran out of disposable funds to be able to buy the Koolance RP-452X2 that I was hoping to purchase last week. Real life (aka. bills) finally worked their way in for the month, so it will be a couple of weeks before I can get my hands on this reservoir.
As for the sleeving, I had requested from Corsair about a month ago to send me a few extra cables so I can begin sleeving. Prior to this, I had made the same request about 3-4 months prior to that for the same cables, which ended up not going anywhere. I followed up recently, and the person I dealt with stated that my package had been shipped out a "while ago", but that he would follow up again on Monday with UPS tracking for a new set to be sent out.
So I will wait and see if in fact he does follow up as promised. I won't complain since these cables are offered free of charge and shipped at their expense. I just hope that this time I will actually receive something when it's all said and done.
The reason why I really want the extra cables so badly is mostly due to my experiences with my pumps. As detailed before, I sleeved those molex cables but reversed the order on the connector. In my haste of troubleshooting, I accidentally damaged one of the pins when trying to remove it and now it won't stay put inside the connector anymore.
So now, I have to find a cheap place that sells replacement pins and recrimp that cable, which is not a big deal, but I would hate for something like this to happen with my 24-pin ATX cable since I only have one of them.
I'd rather be safe then sorry.
