  1. Hi, Does anyone know where I can find an accurate or an up-to-date pin layout for the Corsair HX1000i or any HXi series? I'm doing custom sleeving for this unit and I know each brand and model varies. I know I can use a multimeter, but I feel like a pictorial guide would be a bit easier. If I can't find one online, I may just make one with a multimeter. This is one that I have found online but I think its somewhat outdated and not completely sure how accurate this is today.
  2. their customer service is very friendly.. im honestly amazed how quick and polite they are lol.
  3. did you let the system cool when you tried removing it? try let it get as hot as it can and then unplug everything and try remove it
  4. if i'm allowed to link to EK site you can use their configurator here https://www.ekwb.com/configurator/
  5. Project: Xyla is a personal custom project of mine that I have been designing for some time now. This was my first time using a 3D modeling software and as much as I enjoyed designing it, I am eager to actually start building now. It is a scratch DIY PC desk build so this will take some time as I want knockout any imperfections as I go. Overall it is my third computer build and my first custom water cooled system as well. I’ve done tons of research on the dos and don’ts of watercooling so in theory, I shouldn’t run into any problems (major ones at least). I’ve always had a big interest for DIY anything, but more so for computer technology and such. It’ll be a fun project, modding is always fun. It took me a few months+ to design this... Sad to say that long (first time using SketchUp ever) but I went in detail about literally everything in here (I will post more pictures down the road). I wanted to make a "manual" for myself when I start building this project. As for assembly for the desk, the main parts will be CNC milled and every other part will be done with power tools and a touch of pixie dust. I’m going to stain the legs dark, carbon fiber wrap the desk’s “guts and skin”, and paint everything else matte black. The glass will be custom cut and tempered for durability. I will be using MDPC-X for sleeving all PSU cables and other computer wires to make cable management as easy and as pretty as possible. All other visible wires (fans wires, LED wires, etc.) will be in accordance with this colorway as well. I have received my MDPC sample kit and these cable sleeves are stunning! I can't wait to start sleeving these. I am pretty patient when it comes to building anything but if there seems to be any flaws or something that seems like it wouldn’t work, please feel free to let me know. I am open to your beautiful minds.

  6. Whoa man thanks for the detailed post. That actually explains a lot! I am really leaning towards MDPC-X as well. You seem to be well versed in sleeving! I may end up bugging you for reference and such if ya don't mind :p. Edit: OK I just realized you were doing Project Frost. I can say I am truly amazed by your craftsmanship and patience with that project!
  7. My i3-3220 Ivy Bridge lasted a while before I upgraded but as Princess Cadence says: It's more up to you, also depends what programs or what you plan on doing with your system,
  8. Thanks guys! MDPC-X does seem to have high quality materials. I will check them out, this helped a lot :-)
  9. What brands do you guys recommend for custom cable sleeving? The only one I know of at the moment is para-cord but wanted to see if you guys have had better experience or any quality brands that you can recommend. Thanks in advance!
