    That CPU HSF looks like an Tuniq Tower 2 only problem with it is that it suffers the same problem as my tuniq tower 120 once installed you can't really see the blue glow of the fan unless you use a really ( scuse the profanity Phaewryn) fuck off bright LED Fan

    Right. And it gets good reviews for doing it's job. I'm going to have so much UV happening in that case, led is kinda pointless anyway. But still. I like that it HAS the blue leds. How easy is it to replace the fan that cooler comes with, with a different model/brand fan. I'd put a UV LED one in there, if it weren't a major pain in the ass. It all snaps off, right?

    4 little screws on top and slide the fan bracket out easy peasy then just unscrew the old fan screw on the new one replace in HS screw top on and plug it in and your done takes about ten mins tops

    This Is MY PC ATM Moment.... I used to not care how it looks. But lately I have had a really bad case of being OCD and almost every week I continue to make my Cable management look cleaner and cleaner. I am just the opposite from most of you guys :)

    I even just took and hid the bottom fan this weekend. Which I think cleans it up even more while still givning me great air flow. I even found away to keep a filter on it.

    Went a little crazy with the EVGA parts dont yah think? :)

    I have welder goggles if necessary! All my clothes are washed in UV filtering additive too. I really have to get a job though. Ugh. Daytime. People. Responsibility. *dislike*

    There's no room left behind the tray to hide those excess cables so i just tied them against the back panel =X

    I was about to ask if you were English for using fuck off in that context, then I saw were you're based, you guys and the Auzzies are as bad as us when it comes to inventive use of context! :laugh:

    Nice Build Bud.... Pull on those cables boss. It won't hurt them :) Just don't stress the connections.
    If it helps.... plan out your cabling. That is what I do.... I actually spend about 10 minutes looking at my options before doing it.
    Then I do one cable at a time.... while thinking about the cable I will be a tempting next.

    Thanks a million boss I appreciate it. I am considering getting some single sleeved NZXT cable extensions next to give it a little more cleanliness what do you think ???

    ive heard good things about the NZXT cables,

    and if youre on a budget then thats the ones you should get

    there is some guy at XS who does som insanely nice sleeved extensions, but the price is also a bit high, ask Sneekypeet where he got his

    could one of the americans do me a favor next month?

    i want a EVGA gtx-470 backplate, but evga doesnt ship to denmark, so id ask one of you to buy me one and ship it to me, ill pay through PP ofc
