1. Put staple in
2. Push the wire up (towards the staple) and hold it
3. Push the staple down against your mouse pad. Gives you grip so the staple doesn't slide and it gives a little so it doesn't bend.
4. Pull out the wire, but keep pushing the connector down against the desk/table.
I have tried, with success, the staple method and used sharpened paper clips as they lasted longer than staples, and I have also used the proper tool. IMHO a proper tool is worth every penny; requires less force, doesn't damage the pins at all, is MUCH faster. Yes you can use staples etc... just like you can use a bread knife to cut wood, however the proper tool is usually the best option.

Lol i posted some pics of my rig on another forum, and some guys like "Why did you put 3 fans on your heatsink? Thats useless" Haha i guess he's never heard of a shroud...

Do you fellow HAF owners have any suggestions on a hsf that will show significant temp drops from the Ven-X, I'm not liking how toasty my 930 is right now. I'm thinking water is probably gonna be the only way to go, but was also considering just modding an h50 to save some cash.. What do you guys think?

you can mod an H50 or take the next step up like i did yesterday, go buy a thermaltake bigwater 760is cooling system, only takes about an hour to install, works like a dream the silence is well... priceless

just a note though, the waterblock thats included only mounts to 775 , my mobo supports mount for 775/1156 coolers so i was good otherwise youll need a diff block...not like another 30 bucks cant hurt

EDIT: yes i know may people dont like thermaltake, i didnt either, but they've proven themselves this time

I'd get that kit and just change the water block with a Apogee XT here's a link to it:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108113

I know that its a bit pricey but its supposed to be one of the best if not the best LGA775, 1156, and 1366 water blocks that you can buy.

Lol, I'd have to say EK supreme is the only way to go for me. I'm going to piecemeal my setup though while I continue to run the H50 and save the GPU block for the last item. Just in case 6k series drops before I'm done putting my setup together.

@Yogi... I would continue to use staples but I'm afraid that I would do like I did before and yank the wire out of the pin like the last one. Half the staples were out side the pin and the other half ended up inside the pin. Only I couldn't see that. So when the staple was all the way into the connector it looked safe to pull.

It's okay I've found a reasonably priced tool for $10_+ $3.74 shipping. Will be here in a few days and I can keep on keepin on. the tool is better than those brittle ones that snap with the slightest angle change and has a single pin on the other end to assist 3 pin fan connector removal so the $10 is sort of worth it. I'm pretty much done with my fan sleeving. lol

Let me know when you get your loop completed so that you can sell me that H50 at discount

The HAF X is an amazing case that put the competition to shame. I couldn't have asked for a better enclosure for my rig. Plus from what I hear they are really easy to mod which is a plus in almost anyone's book. The only complaint that I have about it is the fact that they come with a front RED LED fan w/ an on/off switch but the rest of the fans are without led's and that they should also ship with both top fans in place too in stead of making you purchase a second fan for the top. I also have to say that I like the HAF 932's ability to put 4 120mm fans in the door (which you can't in the HAF X) and 3 up top instead of the 2 200mm (which you also cannot do with the HAF X)

Not going to get much better temps than a Ven-X with air. Only option is to go water. You can get a budget loop for about $150 and then sell the Ven-X for ~$50.

The problem with the Thermaltake kits is that the parts aren't the greatest and over time it will break. For the price of the H50 and 760i you could have gotten a way better loop.
