The Reactor Project.October(2010) MOTM winner!! - Page 130

I wouldn't get a 30GB SSD. The space restriction at that point is just too much, and you'll get all-around better performance from a larger Sandforce drive. At any rate, there are bound to be some good deals on better drives popping up sooner or later.

i decided to skip the SSD deal as it was just too small for the price point and i know that their will be a deal sooner rather than later for a larger drive (i hope). but i ALSO decided that when i get home im going to order new connectors and some more WC stuff (PT and kill coil stuff) and try and make a pin removal too (too cheap to buy one atm) so i should have another part of the project done soon

and because its such a nice day here i thought i would share a shot from out the back door of the shop

Lol thanks
I've done it on an hx620w and a fractal design psu, and it worked pretty good for both. Like you see in the video its sometimes a problem to get one nail in, though if you do it 10 times it'll go better. Needs some training

I cant wait for the pics

Staples and nails do work but tear up your fingers after a while. The Corsair's have super tight connectors too which makes it worse. I made my own ATX pin tools to do it and they work awesome; far better than the cheap ones that come in kits. I have used them on a few different PSUs including my Corsair without any issue. Since you're pretty handy, you could make some too. I used some old phillips head screwdrivers that I got with a couple of HDD enclosures and ground them down and cut them to size. I don't want to hijack your thread, but here is a pic:



If you want to know more about how I made them I'd be happy to give you the rundown in a PM.

You should post a how to on doing this so that everyone could benefit. You could put it in the Other Hardware Mods section. I'm sure that there would be quite a bit of interest in it.
