Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you can safely put the CPU power cable between the motherboard and the tray, thus saving you a few inches (you don't have to go over to the hole and back this way). You'd probably have to pull the MB out to do it though.

What PJSand said? It will surely reach if you trail it under the motherboard.

quick question, do you guys think upgrading from 4gb ram to 8gb will improve my laptop's performance in bf3? Or is it just being limited by the graphics card? I've got an HP Envy with an i5, 5650m graphics card in it and getting a lot of lag in 64 player conquest on low settings ) :
Maybe I will just lower my resolution....
Just ordered this friday, what do you think?
CASE: Raidmax Helios Gaming Mid-Tower

FAN: Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan
HDD: 120 GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD

I got all of this plus a $99 corsair h1 headset, a tt esports challenger pro keyboard, and a corsair vengeance mouse for about $1150. I had planned on buying components and building it myself but cyberpower just seemed to have such sweet deals and I didn't think I could build it for cheaper by very much. The liquid cooling was free, and i got double memory upgrade for no additional cost.
I'm a bit worried about the Agility 3 SSD as i've read some bad reviews on them, although some good reviews too though. Also i've had bad luck with Gigabyte mobos in the past and this isn't the nicest you can buy so i'm a little worried on that too.
I am planning on overclocking the 2600k , haven't decided on whether or not to OC the gpu with just the stock fans on it. I do plan on adding a second 6950 as soon as I can afford to.
That Gigabyte mishap should be a one-off, them and Asus make fairly reliable boards.
But the Agility 3 is a point of concern. I hate making people more worried and I really hope it doesn't die/bug on you - if it does, replace it with a Crucial, Corsair or Kingston SSD as soon as you can :S

Not the most impressive system I know but a good mid range option at the time of buying and it cant be to bad as I can play wow with no issues with everything on ultra.
I am thinking of upgrading in the future though, looking at my spec above which pieces would you upgrade first?
