I'm not the biggest fan of yellow, but I'm always impressed when someone can incorporate one of my least favorite colors into a build and make me go, "Now that looks pretty damn good!"

Should look fantastic once all the sleeving is done. Don't give up on removing the pins from your AX750, you'll get the hang of it. It's like second nature to me now!

Thanks MrJuggles. Yeah I'm not the biggest fan of yellow either I just thought it would be cool for a build because that is something that you rarely see.

Long story short my friend's PSU crapped out so he is going to buy my AX750 and I am going to buy a Silverstone Strider evo 750w. :P Prob going to do that today if I can sneak it past the wife somehow :P

Here's a crap update. :P

So I swapped out the PSU yesterday. Long story short....... I could not get any pins out of the AX750 for the life of me other then molex pins. I took lowfat and another fellow's advice and bought a Silverstone Strider. First pin I tried on the strider came out no problem easy peasy. Like butter. Also this PSU apparently has a straight 1 to 1 cable pinout so there will be no crossed over or double wires like the corsair AX750. My friend's PSU died so the AX750 went to him for 100 bucks. I had no time to take pictures because I wanted to have zero downtime for BOINC and get back to crunching immediately!



It's a shame to look at that :P I can't wait to have everything sleeved up.


So bored while boincing I took a test cut to see how long I will need the 8 pin power to be and cut 8 more cables to length with a few extra inches. That's apporximately how long it will be :D

DYING TO GAME

That should look good all sleeved up.

The next PSU I buy will definitely be a silverstone. I just finished sleeving most of the cables on my seasonic platinum, the double wires along with the non standard pin out of the 24 pin cable was slightly frustrating.

I can't wait to just get it sleeved already. It's killin me. This is PERFECT sleeving weather lol.

One of these on the way.


and this on the way. I didn't want to drive across the city on these crazy roads. So many bad drivers out there and people trying to drive on all seasons.


Oh ya I changed the name of the build log to something cool inspired by this! Switchup was just lame.

Well I always wanted to have an interesting name for the build like all the cool guys do! I hadn't thought of anything and I had a buddy help me come up with the name. Vespula vulgaris is latin name for the common wasp. I like the sound of it and it's suiting for the build :D

Nice name change.. can't wait to see some sleeve pics.. Btw I wish I knew you were ordering, would have requested you to get a Pin removal tool for me for the 24pin atx cable, I need hammer the crap down of my paper clip, not the most fun thing to do lol.. and I live like so close to you :p..

All the best for the rest!
