Got bored with my old setup. New Motherboard/RAM/Video Cards
Link to previous build.
Those cables don't do such a machine justice. Fully modular AX-series would look amazing on that beast. :P
Watercooling CPU only with that amount of radiator-space, bent tubing, non-effort in cable management, PSU upside down, HDD loose in a HDD slot, a random fan in the middle of it all.
You've got some work to do, but it can turn out really nicely!
just looking at this thread I realize how poor I am, also I cant post my setup because it wont let me for some reason >_<
Tubing is partially the result of bay res (which I won't do next time). You need extra tubing to take it in and out for refills. I could probably cut it down an inch or so but not a big deal to me.
Cables are fine. Only ones really sticking out are the GPU ones and I don't have much more room in the back panel for 4 8pin cables.
PSU... well that's all preference. Not like the PSU is going to over heat from the air coming off the GPU >.<
Why do I need a full 3 slot HDD bay for one hard drive. Looked worse that way imo.
Random fan was because I was stress testing the CPU. The MOFSETs on X79 boards run notoriously hot and mine sits in an awkward place behind the radiator, so the fan was to keep it cool. I could take it out just haven't gotten around to it. Not entirely sure I'm happy with 4.8GHz.
Although I do appreciate feedback. There is a method behind the madness for everything you mentioned. If I was to do anything it would be custom sleeve the cables but I feel like sleeved cables are a waste of time/money for anything but a show rig.
