    I don't think this is optimal, with two front intake fans, you should probably turn that rear fan to exhaust.

    Depends, if the rear fan is providing the static for rad, intake is correct. If it's simply a fan doing nothing other than blowing air, you're correct.

    Well yeah, I guess I shouldn't have assumed it was just a regular fan, but that's the way I read it (since he didn't mention anything about WC).

    This was from night 1 of the build. I hadn't done any cable running yet, only got the heatsink installed (which was a bit of a pain), and the motherboard mounted.




    And here's night 2, with everything connected. I went back and revised some of the cable management, mostly just ziptying all the little front panel connects and such, but was too lazy to take another picture.

    That looks really slick, Mawaru, however I suggest you cut those down in size or just post the thumbnails before a mod sees. ;p

    That looks sweet! But you're going to have to get some sleeved cables or else you're not doing the build a justice Some red bitfenix extension cables would definitely add the final touch.

    PS. Why don't we just flag the thread as "image heavy" and let it be. I'd much rather look at bigger pics than have smaller thumbnails that I have to click But that's just me..

    Ew, I'm the exact opposite... I'm kind of anal about large images, I like everything to be nice and uniform. >.<

    OT: Nice setup Mawaru, will you actually be using that 2700k?

    I like that idea, actually. I'll have to take a look at Bitfinex's store when it isn't in maintenance, to compare prices of their store with all the other stores they have listed on their site. The main cable I want to extend is that 8 pin motherboard connector I currently have wrapped around the motherboard due to it not being quite long enough to feed behind the motherboard plate. I probably won't buy extensions for any of the others, since aside from the PCI-e power connectors, they only run a couple inches out of the rubber grommets.

    Would surprise me, since he got an i7 2700k.
    And yea, rules are rules. I'd prefer being able to mod through my phones at times, else large threads seem to run away from me.

    Now I suggest we dropping any sidetracks, and for once, stick to posting builds and appreciations thereof.

    That's pretty. Really pretty. Move your damn EPS power cable though. D:

    I most likely will. Maybe not so much right now, since I'm still attending a university pursuing a double major in software engineering and network engineering. While I do quite a bit of programming (+testing / debugging) and a lot of work in CAD, those don't seem to touch the power it's capable of. Granted I haven't been a part of a HUGE project yet either, so who knows.

    I mainly bought the 2700k for the future, because I really have no idea what I'll be doing when I graduate. I know what I WANT to do (3d Game Design / Programming), which will need the power, it's just a matter of getting there. I don't intend to upgrade anything in this machine for a very long time either (5+ years unless there's something revolutionizing), so I figured dropping the extra $140 was better than buying the 2500k and later realizing I needed more CPU power.

    Already planned on it, since Ghâzh mentioned sleeved extensions. :P

    The issue right now is that the EPS power cable just isn't long enough to be fed behind the motherboard plate; it's a couple inches short of the connector. So I have to make do with the way it is until I get the extension.

    If I can do it, you can do it. ;P It's tight, but if you totally undo all of Cooler Master's cable routing and properly route/zip-tie them, they will make it.
