Good to see you workin. =)
I remember speaking about this a few months ago.
Initially "we" were told by the guys at Corsair that these would be the same cables as the AX1200...So, I of course, future prepped and bought 2 sets of cables.
Well, somewhere down the line they decided that going the route of the AX1200 was a bad idea because then you'd have another unique set of cables only available for the AX1200i...So, what they did was swap the layout to the HX line rather than keeping with the AX line.
I understand why they did it...It's a money saver and just smart business but, unfortunately, I can name 5/6 other builds off the top of my head that went out and bought the AX1200 sleeved cables because, this is what we were told.
When I received my AX1200i last week, the only thing I actually tested was the PSU cable so, I posted that all cables were go, in the thinking that, we were told they were the same cables, the PSU cable fits, we're good to go. ~ Well, we're not good to go.
As the Corsair rep confirmed, they actually combined the AX 24 pin with the HX cable base...Essentially making it a pure HX.
This is a bad picture I know but, I haven't been home since I took these...*sigh* ~ The layout's the same in terms of generally where everything is but the headers (or whatever you want to call them) are from the HX.
So essentially if you purchased an AX1200 sleeved kit from Corsair with the intent to use it on the AX1200i, you're boned.
I discussed some things with my client last night and...Ultimately, I think I'll be buying it back...They need some server work that their current network team can't address so, it's a good trade-off.
I'm going to update the OP a bit.
Some things to expect:
I will be finishing this build the way the client asked because, I, in the least owe them that much.
I will not be painting the case...Jim found this deep crimson-red and quite frankly, it's far too awesome to paint over...I will be adding some intense vinyl that won't even look like vinyl so, that's coming down the pipeline.
I will be doing a custom lightsaber stasis chamber. ~ I called my FX guy and he's very excited to help me on this but, it's going to be a complicated project.
I will be doing this on the X79 platform but, with an EVGA Classified X79.
It will have a very industrial theme...Much like Vader's mask...I won't go into too much detail right now but, it's going to be hot.
Stay tuned for more...
