Ahhh! I just watched a video on sleeving and I already want to tear my hair out. I just earned more respect for you Lowfat.

I wish my Revolution looked like that one...good job!

I just hope my Revolution is compatible with my SR2, and that it is not the source of my W7 install issues...

There is a compatibility issue with the Revolution series and some Classified boards, btw:
REVOLUTION85+ EVGA X58 Classified compatibility - ENERMAX Support Forum

I think it has something to do with a 'zero state' or something (I remember reading about it when I bought mine last year).

Not sure about the SR-2 though.

I do enjoy it, but it a very expensive hobby. I have 4 extra power supplies not in use ranging from 750w to 1050w all completely sleeved.

Running out of things to sleeve.

Question about the SR-2 if I could, cause I'm still mulling over a build myself. If the primary goal of the build is a folding rig, why not go for a cheaper server board? If you're trying to maximize ppd you're probably not going to run a boat load of cpu cycle stealing gpus.... so for example wouldn't a supermicro dual socket board work just as well at ~$200 less?

Edit: Awesome job with the PSU sleeving btw
