    Got annoyed with my cables and my wanting of my new case caused me to manage my cables as best I could. (Sorry the photos suck, I need to buy a new camera.)

    Thanks Brandon. I don't know why, but I'm always happy with my cable management until I see photos of such, and then I have to do it again. : /

    I'm excited to see your I7 when it's all together in the HAF case.

    Yeah, after many years of trial and error building boxes I think I'm finally getting the hang of this cable management thing. ;)

    Really wish Corsair made a smaller case so I could keep the theme going with the H50, XMS RAM, and PSU. I'm hoping to eventually send another 300 off to the same person who helped me with this one to cut some cable routing holes similar to how the Cooler Master Sniper has along with a hole in the tray for the CPU backplate. Then, as the finishing touch, chopping the top 2 3.5 inch bays to make clearance for a HD 5970 while still retaining 4 bays for my hard drives.

    Just wish that Antec would get up off their butts and make a 300 revision with at least the holes in the motherboard tray, maybe even a two-piece 3.5 drive bay so that you can take either part or both out for adding say a longer card or what have you, and then stretch it out say 3 inches to allow for enough clearance to use all of the drive bays while still fitting a 5870. *shakes fist at Antec*

    That's dude-ette actually. ^_^

    Yeah, I really am behind in my forum post reading and such but been really busy here of late so I'm hoping to catch up over there soon as well. Really liking how this H50 is working so far but the real acid test will be during the summer to see if it can keep up with the usual 3 week heat wave that happens here in Cali.

    horrible temps due to a ghetto modded cooler with a 120mm fan and 2 80mm fans.

    I just raised the voltage from 1.3-1.35 and got instant 4Ghz (didnt stress test yet)

    hmm how are those fans placed? you should only have push/pul as a maximum, anymore fans will make turbolens i think?

    That is pure beauty there 'tho I really wish they had used a deeper red than that for the front and filters would have been nice as well. Based upon some other full builds I've seen using HAF's I think you're going to have a lot of fun.

    Now, if only Cooler Master would make the Sniper Black - AMD Edition available here. *drool*

    Yeah man cable management can take a toll on you but it's definitely fun. I personally love it. I can spend hours doing cable management. Antec cases are badass but the 300 and the 900 could have used cable management holes. I know afterwards the 900 got some but I still didn't think they were too great. One case I loved to do cable management on is the TT Armour +, the one with the big side panel fan. Tons of them, you can pass cables through anywhere.
