    Skarsguard,

    When you're on imgur ready to copy a link for an image, choose the large or small thumbnail, then use "Linked BBCode."

    Hope that helps!

    Everything is off my SSD pretty much have windows,antivirus,cpuz,firefox,Wow,D3, and Ccleaner and that's it. Still have 60 gigs free so I'm for sure not doing bad at all btw If I could change anything on my build I would have went with the regular shinobi the XL is a beast 35 pounds by it self other then that I love the case and how "clean" it looks.

    Similar to the build I'm working on, looks good. In my opinion though turn the PSU so you're showing the golden X instead of the ugly specifications tag

    Depending on the length of the 8pin cable that might not be so easy, I had to turn my PSU that way around for it to reach without over-straining the cable to connector solder points, it really felt like if I were to pull any harder something might snap.

    Fair enough, I thought the cables that comes with Seasonic were pretty long. Either Way assuming they're long enough I think it would look better turned around.

    Mine came with a proper sticker on both sides, so I think it actually looks better that way around because you see less of the cables.

    Is this a computer you assembled yourself? There are... more than a few things I'd do different. Also, are you running 2x8GB modules and 2x4GB modules? I see no other way to achieve those 24GB of RAM (well, 3x8GB I guess).

    In either case, pictures?

    Fan down or gtfo! :P

    No, I agree that the gold X looks better, but I prefer to have the fan facing down. Functionality > aesthetics.

    Afaik know there is no "performance" difference between facing "up" or "down", unless like mentioned already the cables can't reach.

    And cables not reaching is a bit more of a performance drop than the degree or so temperature difference.

    Did you read this part? If the cables can't reach then obviously you're not going to turn it around, unless you have extension cables...

    Going off-topic now though, it was just meant as an observation/suggestion. The build looks great as is anyways!

    Well, I actually did have plenty of cable to work with but I still prefer the fan facing down for now. Perhaps I will explore that at a later date when I pick up my new case fans and have a need to pull off the back panel that is keeping my zip tie artwork hidden from the world.

    Still not sure how LED's(White or Blue) fans will look in my case. Might just buy some fans and try them out and return if not satisfied.

    As an Arc Midi owner myself (albeit a modded one - click the link in my sig to see pics), LEDs would ruin the simplicity of the case, in my opinion... But, I might be biased, I'm against LEDs in almost every circumstance, I've only seen a few people pull them off (Voorhees83 being one of them).

    Been a fan of your rig since you started that build log on it. I share the same feeling regarding LEDs. That's why I was hesitant to begin with. I am largely against LED's as they generally don't look good with the rest of the system. Of course there are a few exceptions, but those are generally some expensive builds/mods.

    More than likely I will just be purchasing some plain white, or white/black combo color fans that compliment the rest of the case. Have a few in mind, though they're not in stock anywhere atm it seems. When all is said and done, I think the only LED I wouldn't mind would be fan controller related.
