    little change and also modification in the cables

    doubled the AP121 on the Seidon 120V side 120mm on the PWM chassi fan plug on the board (and as you can see the Gigabyte is at ease in that SG09B)

    a bit weird cable routing for the fan but pretty quiet (thi i use a Coolermaster Blademaster 120mm 600-2400RPM as side fan ...) the little adapter is a SATA to Molex 4p that i use to get rid of the 4x4p molex cable on the back.

    Only thing in Greiver's set disturbs me is the Thermaltake PSU (they aren't not so well quality) but very cool otherwise :toast:

    edit: Maybe my next pic will be with HD5870 CF since I'm getting those little bastards in a trade to few NES games :toast:

    and that Smart SE 530W hold pretty well no matter what i throw at it :D (well the heaviest card i had on it was the GTX580 and the X4 760K OC to 4.6 with a multi heaven 4.0 pass ultimate settings)
    that Smart SE is a DSAII OEM ... Corsair CX and CM use it ... so you can remove the "not so well quality" :D yet much better than corsair: cheaper (oh the non 80+ certification might be for something... ahah) and all flat cables :p ofc the DSAII is a cheap budget oriented PSU yet quite reliable. (i had a Chieftech Nitro+ 650w also and never had a problem with it)

    I buy only 100% Japanese caps PSU's... different thing is what I get free :D I don't trust that Chinese caps filled Delta 350W on my #2 PC so maybe I'll buy a 450W 100%japcap PSU before I put GTX470 to it ;)

    BTW there are my temps on BF4 64player MP

    a totally awesome cooler... if it fits... i replaced a Macho by a H70 (old H80 equivalent) then Macho again, silent and cool no other beats it on the price/perf ratio (nope not even Noctua or the copycat Raijintek and the Ereboss)
    PHOTO_20131111_153458.jpg PHOTO_20131111_153513.jpg PHOTO_20131113_155203.jpg PHOTO_20131113_155238.jpg PHOTO_20131113_155330.jpg

    well they rate it 87% efficiency and also 3yrs warranty ... so i am quite confident and... i might change it later if my financial status goes better :D

    seems they use Teapo cap and Aishi for the main cap, and the soldering quality is not bad at all (expected for a CWT DSAII)

    For some reason when I see the word "ECO" written inside a gaming PC, I feel like everything I was ever taught in physics was just plain wrong.
    I want to see an oil transport liner capsized in the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by 100 million Gallons of polluted water with great white letters "ECO" slapped across the side of the ship in Comic Sans MS.

    Clean build though :D

    Thanks! I did have sleeved extensions for all my cables, but the 24pin broke and I really didn't trust my attempted repair of it. It looked really stupid with just the 24pin not black and blue so I took them all off, and said fuck it.

    Did you put a little fan on top of the graphics cards GPU, or is that just the angle? If so, how much has that helped the temps on the reference card?

    I like the ghettoness of the fan just plonked on the 290x hehe :)

    Also I think you may have missed your optical drive tray when you tried putting in that disc???

    What a mess, oh well, that messy PSU has served me since 2011 and still working very well, no issues at all, the missing part is the H80i Corsair cooling solution I'm putting this month when it's available.

    Bought a new PSU (Cougar GX-1050) to replace my legendary Zalman ZM-1000HP in my main rig. That thing has been powering my main rig since the middle of 2008 or 2009 I think it was. It's been so long I've forgotten haha. I still prefer the look of my old Zalman - dat paint job - even if it is really, REALLY long.

    I was researching the Macho, came across an article that suggested that Thermalright and a number of other manufacturers such as Prolimatech, Phanteks, Scythe, Noctua use a convex base that actually deforms the lid. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1366-page2.html
    Did you install the 120mm AIO after the Macho first? If the Macho performs better this might be why. I wonder if my Phanteks is the same way. Their I7 test cpu looks really warped though. The corners are all rounded off!
