Ok...just a quick update...was a bit nervous as to if my wiring would do the job in its current configuration...so i jerry rigged my new PSU to give me some power and hooked the fan up to make sure...needless to say i am happy with the results



and with the lights off...



I also had my first go at cable sleeving so when the case is finally back together i can just connect it all. What a mission it is getting the pins out of the PCI-E plug...God it going to take me ages to do the main connector...

Was a bit of an effort to get the magnet off the cable as well...found it was easy if you cut the heat shrink up to the magnet then used a small flat head screw driver to work the wires free of the glue. Then it was a matter of just moving it back and forth until it could slide over the wires and off.





And then the completed cable...



I heat-shrinked each individual wire, but it looked a bit messy and since i had the large glue lined heat shrink there for later thought it would look tidy to use here as well.

Did you put the magnet back on?? When I was going to do mine, I was told that the magnets keep EMI down and removing them can void the warranty. The non-modular cables have them too but they are in the PSU.

Anyway, very nice work on the fan LED switchout.

Thanks. No i didn't put the magnet back on...there is no way i could fit the cables back into the magnet...unless i take one off another cable and feed 3 wires through each...do you think it will make that much of a difference??

Your heat shrink job was a very smart method. It is clean, so clean man. I will use that design for my future sleeving. Sub'd.

I don't know if it will make a difference, probably won't but you can always be the test dummy.

Thanks so much....very happy with the outcome, especially since it was a way to cover my inexperience in sleeving.

I have had a look at the Corsair site and it seems that if you so much as remove stickers from the PSU you void your warranty, let alone sleeve the cables. Was a bit worried after your comments so had a look at some reviews that analysed the internal components of the PSU and as far as i can see there are no magnets on the non-modular cables...

So fingers crossed it wont cause too much ripple/noise/EMI in the power supply to the graphics card.

Well my warrantys long gone. My PSU is the HX1000 so I'm just going to go ahead and guess that its made very different to yours... not counting the fact that mines esentually 2 500w PSUs stuck together. You would think them both being in the HX range would mean the magnets are the same though?

Anyway, those magnets always did seem useless to me so hopefully everything will be fine without them.

I posted this question on the corsair forums

Quote:
My question is what will be the consequence of me removing the magnets to facilitate a much neater sleeving job.
And this is their reply

Quote:
You may get some noise in the Video Cards IE static or unstable graphics.
So lets hope that it will be fine. Otherwise i will have to remove those bloody connectors again....and i reaaaaallllly don't want to have to do that again.

On a positive note there was no mention of voiding warranty.

It was this statement that had me worried:

Quote:
WHAT PARTS ARE NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY?
The following product(s) are not covered by this warranty:

Corsair product(s) that are missing any Corsair label
Corsair product(s) that were not purchased directly through Corsair or a Corsair-authorized reseller
Corsair product(s) that have been physically damaged/abused, i.e., removal or application of heat spreaders and labels
.
