I have owned Seasonic in the past and really like the Quality.. I have been eyeing the 850w X series.. I gave up last night. Wanted to hear back from you guys first. Since I have not sleeved before.
I forgot I got the crimper from Nils coming. So. Seasonic then.. thumb.gif

Hey you might want to look at protz build or talk to him before you go ahead with that. He has a seasonic and he is having the hardest trouble de pinning it even with the MDPC tool. I'm tellin you, take the advice from the master himself. Post number 10.

Silverstone strider is the best for first timers and has the 1 to 1 pinout.

I may or may not make the trip cross town to memory express to buy one today. We got a good snowfall and the roads are bad and I only have all season rubbers on right now. I haven't put my winter tires on. Either way I will let you know how it goes for me.

I have the Corsair AX850, which is fully modular, and did all the sleeving myself. I really didn't have too much trouble depinning everything, but there were a few pins that had two wires on them that were a little more difficult to handle than the single wire pins. I was still very happy with how easy it was otherwise. I used a depinning tool from PPCs that is almost identical to the one from MDPC. I've only ever read good things about Seasonic PSUs too though
EDIT: This is the depinning tool I used. That little black holder it come in is really nice. I tried doing a couple without it and it made it a lot more difficult. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=60_143_272&products_id=2964

The AX850 is a solid PSU for sure.. I have the TX750w in the Elysium right now.. Peeking at the Silverstone Strider smile.gif

Brainstorming the Flush Vandel Switch Face problem.. 2 side covers and Drill holes in the Roof for Clearence for the Back of the Switches... What do you think?








post #578 of 2252
I had a Strider ST1000. Impressive and very powerful.

Be warned: I spent a few hours trying to remove the pins. Never had I come across a psu that had uber hard pins fitted. I thought the TT toughpower 1.2kw was bad and after spending several days and in pain of my poor aching fingers, I was able to finish that. That TT psu made me think twice about sleeving a psu. The Silverstone sealed the deal since I couldn't pull the first four pins from the cpu cable and I'm weary now. If I can't pull the first few pins without much difficulty, then I just use extensions (tongue.gif).

I think it would be your best bet, at least the bet with the least amount of work, haha! Really I think it would look great. Maybe you could put a piece of {Insert Material of Choice Here} between the two side covers as a top of sorts, maybe mesh or smoked acrlic.thumbsupsmiley.png
