Those 1.5mm black ones on the side?

Not so. Hex head goes in, a little torsion, and pow, instant stripped to hell head. On both, on both cards.

Well crap...

I am sorry to hear that mate! I have subbed as well as I am looking at the 350D for my next build/mod! I am impressed with the hardware so far, so make me proud!

A little more work was done today, though not on the Titans as I just got the tool I think I need to remove those screws.

Here we go:



I got in the fans I want to use, as well as some TIM, some TIM prep, some very lovely MDPC - its the best - sleeving and tools, and then the most important thing of all: Quality Beer.

Sad thing is, between the NewEgg order, the MDPC, that 12 pack of beer was the most expensive bit.

Anyways, on to the work!

First up, I had to do a little practice, get an idea of what it takes to do things right with the sleeve. But, I do want it to be useful, so lets do a lightning cable for my phone:



Not toooooo bad for a first timer..

So, fans are to be done up and installed:




Next item on the schedule, is to take care of those bloody screws!

Subbed.One question those fans came up painted already or did you painted them ?

Nope, they came that way - Corsair's line of fans come with three rings, one each in Red, White, and Blue. Now, I am probably going to paint them a slightly different shade of red - jury is still out on it - but but they do come pre-coloured.

oh Thanks by the way they look awesome
post #27 of 192
did you remove the screws?

i heared if you have stripped screws you can use an elastic between the driver and the screw to help get tension. smile.gif


also i dont think anyone has mentioned.. im confused..
your title says 20 years since you last build. but your original post says you havent built since the 98 era

thats only 15 years?

OK, some work was done on those screws that have been a right pain in my third point of contact.

When I tried to remove them, the amount of locktite that they used was excessive to say the least - and the screw material wasn't exactly the hardest either. So, it didn't take much to strip the allen head out.

Usually when that happens, you have a number of options. One, you can use a cutting wheel and cut a slot into it, and use a flat blade screwdriver to get more leverage. That was right out for two reasons, the biggest being the head of the screw is countersunk.

The second is you can use an easyout and drill a hole in the centre of the screw, and then slip in the easyout and crank it. Again, right out for two reasons: One, the screw was way to small to drill a hole in it, and the second, which the first option shared as a no-go, was drilling makes a lot of tiny shavings, and I don't know about you, but I don't want to risk a $1000 GPU on the hope that I cleaned up every last scrap. I'm crazy yes, but not that crazy!

So, into my bag of bottomless tools, because, lets face it. There is a tool for *everything*. And sure enough, I found one for this.



This is a two part bit. The backside has a drill head, and like an easy out, you drill a small hole in the top of the bolt, and then sink the front side into it - note the spiral pattern on it - and crank it, and it grooves will bite into the material and off you go. These are not your typical easyout however: This particular one is designed for 5mm bolts, and the one I used here:



Is sized at 3mm, and here, is placed in a tap handle. In this case I used *just* the spiral end, ignoring the drilling a hole bit, since, well, there already was one for the allen key.


Worked a treat, and now I am back on track. Updates later tonight or tomorrow, and we are finally hitting the meat of the true custom portion of my build!
