    I take it that no back-rad/fan is a choice of aesthetics? I really like bottom-mounted rads for some reason.
    Dislike sleeving the SLI/CF-bridge, wouldn't mind seeing reservoir.

    EDIT: oh, and for consistency. PSU is upside down.
    EDIT2: Is it for effect, or are there air bubbles not bled out?

    (heh, post #11111)

    2. The alternative to the sleeved SLI bridge would be a brown piece of turd, so eh. I tried to get pictures of the reservoir, but it's quite hard to get a good angle on it, and camera battery ran out before I really found a position to get a good shot.
    3. PSU isn't upside down. It's exactly the way I want it to be!~
    4. I'm not sure what's going on with those tubes, but the build is bled out. It appears the tubes need replacing, so I'm considering looking into the nickel-plated copper tubes again... Maybe paint 'em black and stuff.

    I agree, besides who'd want the text upside down unless of course it's interchangeable.

    Corsair were actually smart and put the same text on both sides.

    Seeing the flipside of the powersupply has an ugly label, I'd rather have the view of the fan tbf. It doesn't have any meaningful performance difference attached anyway. :U

    Whoo, QuickFire TK!
    As for your build, I think the power supply is a bit disproportionate, and that case is.. hm. Not to my taste.

    It's not my computer, it's google's. However, it's a sound-proofing kit from Be Quiet! apparently.

    To be quite honest it's a pretty darn good case though. The 3.5" hard drive mounting is fantastic. Although I do feel they could've done something better in the bottom compartment overall, and it'd be amazing if the motherboard tray included the PCI and rear IO slot...

    Overall, it's a fairly simple case with little bullshit attached imo...

    A friend of mine has the HAF XB, if it wasn't for the fact that my room is a problematic dust collector (I think our ducts need cleaning tbh), I'd probably get one since it's a nice case with a lot of open airflow. Unfortunately it lacks the dust filters I need so unless I change residence in the next while, I wouldn't get one. You can stuff a lot into that case though, two GTX 680's can fit with a 120x2 radiator CPU cooler with ease.

    I think you meant "case" there instead.

    I like it, something different and would probably fit on my desk a lot easier than full sized cases. Does look like a printer though hah.
