    Personally i would not sleeve the sli bridge as i think it look best naked. The flexible bridges looks awesome.
    Also, first time posting on mmo-champion with a smartphone. Not as hard as i thought it would be.

    The ones I have are a bright orange. This is wildly incompatible with the theme I'm planning lol. That said, I spent some more time on it to try and clean some things, so I snapped another picture.

    I have done absolutely nothing about it's settings after installing it 3 months ago, what the actual fuck?
    Thats normal, the boostclock is the minimum boost. After that, the cards just goes on untill it hits it max temp i think. Prob stops somewhere around 70-80 degrees i think.

    So basicly, when dust settles in, the max boostclock will be lower. Or thats what i think it was.

    PC que acabei de montar, tá faltando o SSD que ainda não chegou pelos correios, mas já deu pra ligar tudo e testar pelo menos:
    Rig I just finished building for my brother. It's missing the Crucial M4 which hasn't arrived yet, but I decided to just get everything set up, and test the pieces. Everything is fine, so I just gotta wait for the SSD to arrive and install Windows =].
    Not a gaming build, so no GPU, sadly =[
    i5 3450
    ASRock H77M
    4Gb GSkill 1333 DDR3

    64GB Crucial M4
    Asus Xonar DG
    Antec HCG 520 (totally overkill, I know, but the price difference from other good brand, but lower wattage ones, was minimal, so I decided to stick with it anyway, just in case he decides to start gaming or w/e =p)
    Corsair 300R

    Thanks! I spent freaking hours trying to make it as clean as I could, but in the end I think I'll need some sharpie and stuff to color a few spots black lol. Trying to melt two endpieces of sleeve together so they look good and stay on the bridge was a long road, and not without imperfections. :E

    There are two layers of sleeve, since one layer showed the orange color of the bridge really badly through the gaps.

    It's with PSU companies not goddamn realizing that tons of cases today have a nice dedicated bottom intake for the PSU, of course people will face their PSU "upside down" to make use of that nice dust-filtered intake :S

    I mean look at this, what the hell do you call this:



    Who in their right mind would have their PSU intake facing the inside of the case, especially a 1200i? ARGH

    I personally do it because I prefer seeing the fan-side rather than a side with a big ugly sticker.



    And yes, a certain someone here, has already hounded me about it saying "IT'S UPSIDE DOWN NO YOU'RE WRONG IT IS UPSIDE DOWN!!!"

    Even though the screw holes are there to allow you to choose either. -.-

    While to some extent true, most brands have the branding flipped upside down on the side you don't see. This specifically because regardless of the orientation, the powersupply will then have the branding the correct way when you look into the computer from the left side.

    But the Antec PSU earlier clearly doesn't.

    Hah, you so silly, Xuvial.

    All Corsair PSUs have labels on both sides, except the one not visible in that picture will be up the other way. So, when you flip it over, the now-visible label is oriented correctly.

    Really makes no difference which way it's facing, face it whichever way you think looks the best.

    Corsair is really getting worse with their PSUs. Okay, they're not bad, but they're continuously moving further from perfect.

    And even if the sticker is upside-down, it's still better than mounting the PSU upside-down. The funny thing is, though, that even cases with a top-mounted PSU would likely have the sticker upside-down since most of those are fan-down as well.

    I don't see why you're throwing this out there, especially with literally no reasoning to it whatsoever. If it's that the sticker is wrong side up on one side... well, that's not what happens. I'm pretty sure all of Corsair powersupplies have this.

    A weakness that does exist for the Corsair powersupplies is the sleeving side. Not the stock job, I mean if you want to sleeve the powersupply yourself. The wires often go from one pin to two pins, or two pins or even three pins to one pin. The pins themselves are quite rubbish too and are really uncooperative.
