    My wonderful girlfriend bought me a new PSU as an early birthday present as my previous PSU made all kinds of loud fan noise.
    I am not positive about what model it was, but it was a Coolermaster PSU.

    I replaced it with a Corsair RM650, and it is incredibly silent thanks to the fan not even spinning until I start gaming, and even then it is inaudible.
    A problem arose though while I was putting it in, the computer would not turn on. For the life of me, I had no clue why. So I took it to a mate who owns a computer shop and he literally unplugged the cables from the PSU side, then plugged them back in and it worked. I have no idea why, maybe I didn't socket them properly.. Who knows. Just thankful I didn't blow up my motherboard somehow.

    Anyway, I really like the Corsair RM650, I made a video about the ordeal.

    I haven't seen many EVGA boards around been used. How do you like them so far?

    they aren't bad, EVGA used to have the two best motherboards on the market with the x58 classified 3 and the SR-2 classified, but then two things happened, they lost half their motherboard engineers to sapphire, and Asus seriously stepped up their RoG brand

    looking at it today, i went with the EVGA because it's limited on features, basically a high quality board with no extra fat attached, which is the direction i think RoG should be going, instead they are loading their boards out with more features than you will ever use, which just leads to driver overhead and a messy kernel

    Some potato quality photos coming up:

    New stuff!


    I knew stock coolers weren't amazing but this has to be a joke...


    Annoyingly the CPU 8pin is too short to be routed properly.


    Ugh...


    Problems!


    Problem solved!


    Still quite tight.


    Whole setup.

    I might order a second GTX 760, and at that point I'll use something better than my old phone. :P

    And now I get to move everything from my crappy case into this beauty. I just want to sit here and stare at it for bit, it's my first case that has the inside painted and it's sooooooo purdy.




    Best $10 i ever spent

    Can't you run that cpu power cable behind the motherboard tray and up through the gromits above?

    Break the image links before mods do it for you

    Looks like high profile would not fit in the first black slot but the 2 gray slots are fine. If you have 4 slots filled you could probably just remove the fins.
