    I tried to do some cable management, but I got bored after about half an hour and decided I wanted to play some computer games instead of wrestle with cables.

    To do a perfect cable management sure. To avoid obstructing airflow about 20 minutes are enough.

    Updated build!

    Latest update to my build my next step it to get a new motherboard and go black and white theme! After that I'm going with a black and white custom loop them. Any thoughts on the mobo for that? I'm thinking a Z87 sabertooth with some special spray paint to the special dust covers and some white cable fittings as well as a different case!(phantom 530 black?)

    That 7970 is a powerhungry card though. The 3 slot cooler got a poor fan profile compared to their 2 slots and also a very thin heatsink for a 3 slot card. It was doing a fine job on a gtx 680 never seen the fan passing above 30% but that was just because the card was never exceeding 80% TDP. The 3 slots were just basically like this: 20% quiet 30% quiet 40% audible 50% way too loud. Their 670's aren't even audible at 50%.

    Upgrading? What do you need from the Gigabyte board that you're not getting from the Asrock?

    830 to 840, getting a bigger drive to replace or or just need more SSD capacity?

    Its not really an upgrade per say, I'm just redoing the way everything looks, and the ASROCK doesn't suit my needs, for it, I'm getting the Gigabyte from a friend for like 60 bucks, so I figured why not, and I'm upgrading the 830 to a 840 512Gig.

    I'll post pictures later this month once I get everything in it, with proper cable management.
