    New gaming case ! lovely presents. Corsair vengeance C70 Arctic White

    This case isn't broken like my last one, so i can actually get the backplate off, so now i can do some proper cable management.

    I got an album with some pictures of it, and some holiday candy at the end
    http://imgur.com/a/b7k4w

    Too bad my camera cant catch the awesome lighting in the dark. It doesn't look as pink, or as sharp as in the picture. It looks REALLY badass.

    Also i neated up the cables a little bit after the pictures were taken, so now it looks even better.

    I would hazard a guess that it's the Gigabyte Windforce.

    I'm pretty certain that is the Gigabyte Windforce card too.

    I really need to stop lurking in this thread. Seeing all the cases with the 'almost no cables' showing managment makes me cry little bit on the inside. My case is a jungle of cables..

    You can only do what your case allows you to do, unless you go crazy with a hacksaw/dremel and additional sheets of steel. For cases which offer zero cable management, e.g. no space behind mobo tray, no gromets/holes, etc the most you can do is nicely bunch all the cables together with ties and place them (or try to place them) out of the way of airflow. Do you have such a case?

    I have Bitfenix Shinobi(windowed) right now. It has some space behind the mobo tray, i have all my fan cables/etc in there.

    The problem really is my PSU(Corsair GS600 Gamer edition). All the wires in it has their own braided cord cover thingy, so it's like fighting with wild vines..

    *edit*

    Even tho my PC might get laughed at, i'll try to get some pics later. xD

    Awesome screen, that picture looks really freaking sharp even as an image. Reminded me to setup my screens properly, which on IPS LED screens really improves the picture quality, videos look amazing when calibrated and configured properly

    Your order for they day: Cleaning time!
    But seriously, all that dust in/on the radiator isn't good, it blocks cooling. And i don't want to know how the graphics cards look.

    Pressurized Air works best. Vacuum is not good.

    If you are not going to do it often, then canned air is probably the cheapest solution: http://www.amazon.com/Innovera-51505...dp/B000U08SYK/
    But if you plan on doing such things regularly, then you might consider this little toy: http://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-E...dp/B001J4ZOAW/

    My brother's Cosmos II as it looks right now. We don't have compressed air or anything on hand, so it's dusty as hell, lol.



    Cosmos II
    AX 850
    Asus P9X79 Deluxe
    Corsair Dominator 4x8GB, 1600MHz @ 1.5v
    Intel i7 3930k
    GTX 680
    Corsair Force 3 240GB... x2

    Thinking of doing some changes to the watercooling, heh. Think a freestanding res and pump (it's currently an Alphacool 5.25" mounted solution) would look good in here?

    A vertical standing tube res with a white led strip behind it (maybe cover the LED strip in thin black cloth (muslin, tights that kind of thing) to make it merely lit up and not have the LEDs reflecting all over the place) next to the HDD cage could look quite good.
