    For all the times I've had him complain either directly or indirectly to me about sleeving cables, I imagine it would be a pretty big sum of money. ;p That is IF...

    These are the worst sleeved cables in the system. Look at the poor heatshrink. Still, thanks for support.

    Couple of things happened today. For one, I fixed the radiator issue. The rad is now mounted on... on top of motherboard standoffs. Additionally, new fans are in place. I still don't have copper brown sleeve, but I thought I'd compare the Vanilla Strand or w/e-its-name-is sleeve to the fan.

    I realize the alphacool logo is upside down. However, the underside of the rad is ugly as sin, so I'd prefer to keep it oriented this way around.



    Somewhat unrelated, I whimsically decided to test the Noctua fans on my H100i in the HAF XB build. You can hear what the Noctua fans sounded like first by clicking here, and compare them to the stock fans.

    Also, pictures.

    I do love me some Noctua-fans. They look sweet and accentuates the contrast to the other parts really well.

    Update since my last post.

    I gave my brother my 7870 since I hated his 7770 he been using. Decided to give nvidia another chance. Been using AMD cards for years because of a bad nvidia experience. Got a GTX 680, kinda having regrets not getting a 7970 ghz lol. I was really impressed with the size of the card. My old 7870 was well into the hard drive bay. I don't like how my 2 SSDs are kinda just floating in the case, I dunno what to do about that.

    This is my best cable management ever, lol

    if images too big, i apologize.
    1) Props on reading 'The Last Command'.
    2) They make 'caddies' to hold SSDs in a regular sized bay.

    Yeah, Corsair is sending out new fans to replace these, after failing to fix the issue with a firmware update. Firmware update removed the fan noise, but introduced pump noise, lol. They're shipping out PWM fans this time around, which is interesting; Corsair doesn't have any other PWM fans that I'm aware.

    Only used Be Quiet! as case-fans tbqh and not in my own build, but the newer models are better for sure, at least in mounting. I'd recommend zip-ties for mounting them though on the NH-D14.
