These may look familiar if you've seen my FTW Sleeving Review. I'm still working on my technique and recently bought a heat gun because the candle flame was just too unmanageable.

Work has been hectic to say the least, but more will come soon.

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.

Corsair customer service is great. If you have any issues just contact CorsairGeorge. They are sending me a brand new front panel fascia for my 800D for free! They have been so awesome that I'm seriously considering ponying up the cash of their ax1200 for my new setup.

Like you, bills and life are holding back my expensive habit which seems to have no end


btw, I'm really digging the FTW sleeve, but I have quite of bit of FurryLetter's left (TechFlex cleancut).

Yeah that is true. In the past, I've always ended up satisfied with the resolution Corsair provided. I guess it's moreso that I'm surprised that it has taken this long to reach some sort of an answer. However, I understand that they they are paying out of pocket to not only offer free cables, but free shipping as well so I'm being patient about the whole thing. Or at least trying...

I'm sure you will be happy with an AX1200 if you could actually fit it in your setup - especially with the Tri-SLI setup that you're going for!

When I have a little more time on my hands I'll work on getting a hold of some Furryletters for comparison. Lately it has been brutal at work, where by the time I come home I am so drained that I just plop on my chair and lounge around.

Anyway, I am finally getting to work on those pictures I have talked about. The next post should have some to get this worklog really going again.

Here, I have cut the thermal tape to their proper sizes, as per the instructions included with the Koolance blocks.




Now they are fitted and placed on both blocks






Here we can see both of my cards before I anything has been done. The backplates originally belonged to my old GTX 570, before I used the EVGA Step-Up program to upgrade to the 580's. As such, I used some strong nail polish remover to erase the "570" off of both cards.




A little more nail polish later, and tada...!!!




Now onto the arduous task of disassembling the stock coolers off both cards...








So many screws!!!




Finally completely removed with all screws reassembled for future purposes!




And all that is left is a lightweight card. Hard to believe this costs about $500!




NX-VID580. Meet GTX 580. Ooops... sorry, she's a little dirty right now...




Ah there we go! All clean! Wait, what's that? Is there a twin?




Why of course! You kids have fun on your double date.

Oh snap! You guys have exactly what I need! Incoming small order soon!

By the way, are you guys going to get black molex male/female connectors in the future as well?
