    didn't go nzxt huh?

    nice fans !

    itx case right now, might not end up going wooden on this because the increased size with 3/4" wood and my lack of skill with joinery. Until my skill improves my itx will be this

    Heres the few case mods I have done:
    Drive cage removed, drive is inside a cage from a Dell PowerEdge from ebay ($7 shipped). The metal had to be bent in a small vice, I used a cheater bar on the vice handle and the metal cage actually resisted enough to bend the vice's handle,
    I removed the stock drive cage to put in a 120x38mm fan and a Asetek 120mm AIO. I hope it doesn't leak in this thing, its an old salvaged cooler from a friend's rebuild job.

    New rubber feet.

    @Vario decided on the 750D after seeing the inside of the H440. Its a great case but mid tower might be too small for what i want to end up doing. I also saw it in person (the 750D) when my friends build parts came and it is a really nice looking case

    I have 4 4500RPM 38mm Nidec Beta V fans, pulled and resoldered by me after salvaging them from some Dell servers. I hope you realise how loud 38mm SP fans are...

    I hope you realise ive been using high rpm 38mm fans since 2010....................and that i have amped sennheiser HD598 headphones, so no amount of noise is going to even begin to bother me or be a distraction.

    I find 4500RPM's to be far too noisy at 50% speed, even with my over ear noise cancelling headset. Each to their own I suppose.

    38mm fans are where its at. I like the cheap dual ball bearing Koolance 120x38 ($9/fan) and have a few San Ace Denki as well.

    I have them on a fan controller set really really low most of the time.

    I can't believe EVGA put some ultra bright white LEDs to the side of GTX 780 Ti Classified Kingpin graphics card.
    It is making me blind and I have bad headache... And wait for it... best part is you can NOT disable them. No sir, there is 25 different dip switches but you just can't disable these super bright blinders.

    As a temporary fix I slapped over it some electric tape but its not holding very long during gaming (gets hot, glue melts). Besides, 750 euro graphics card. Duct tape it?

    I thought I finally find something special. It would be damn ashame if I have to switch gfx card again because of 5 LEDs.

    all about that amped 598. amped high grade cans are very loud and therefore serve to be 100% noise cancelling ;)


    Sanyo Denki San Ace :p I have three of the rare San Ace 9G1212H1011. will never get rid of.



    @GC_PaNzerFIN I actually like the LEDs. they are present on the 780 Classified as well and they personally dont bother me at all even with a windowed case facing towards me.

    You really don't want any of those LEDs to turn off. It means there is a power delivery issue.

    I like the LEDs personally. Gives the card character. I can, however, see how some may not like them.

    I have never ever seen such bright LEDs used on any PC hardware for obvious reason. I do liek debug leds. But come on these are power LEDs designed for lamps and industrial lightning.

    I have LEDs like that on a sunbeam fan controller and its horrible. I put electrical tape over them but it falls off occasionally and ruins the look as well. Smashed the led out of my NZXT Sentry Mesh controller too. I hate LEDs.

    Damn man, the only way I could figure out which board you had was by the power button and VRM heatsink.
    That being said, I see an EVBot and DMM, so you must be benching. In the case of benching, wire management won't net you a higher score ;)

    True, no extra points for cable management in any 3DMark bench and if you look closely you'll see that I got two PSU's hooked up. The rig pulls 1800W from the wall i the first GPU-test in Firestrike. o_O

    I saw the dual-PSU jumper cable in the first pic. You have a serious benching rig set up there.

    Yes it's good but I need to get the second PSU installed on the other side of the case and do some cable management :p
