    Took some new shots of the desk (just cleaned it up again) and the inside and outside of the rig, inside is getting sloppy in my laziness.

    Edit: Created a push-pull on the HSF and spruced up the cables a bit.

    Nope. No particular reason that I can think of other than my floor being dirty(sweep under the computer everyday). Other than that, no reason. Doesn't affect my temps whatsoever, and it looks nice with the blue LED inside.

    fare enough although sucking the hot air from inside the case will make temps in the PSU higher decreasing efficiency and life span

    Very valid point. I was actually looking that up after you said something about it. I tried flipping it and it just doesn't line up correctly with the back of the case for some reason and the 24 pin becomes too short, so I'll just leave it like it is. Thanks very much for the advice though. Other than that, what do you think of the whole setup? =D

    Alright thanks, I'll look into one and try it again.

    Edit: Not sure what I was doing wrong before, But I got it to finally sit right and the 24 pin isn't too stretched like it was when I tried it before. I'm guessing some cables just got stuck somewhere and it wouldn't sit right.

    specs:

    Asus Maximus III Formula
    Intel i5 655K cpu
    HyperX 2133 ddr3

    ^Hopefully that MIIIF has atleast the 1607 bios already on it or else be prepared for a no post ''gotta find an I5 750 or I7 860 to update the bios first'' saga.

    I know quite a bit about computers but something perplexes my mind. I re-installed Windows, as it was getting pretty buggy. I deleted the old Windows with Disk Cleanup and reinstalled only the programs I need, naturally I have more HDD space. Now on to my question. Since I have reinstalled Windows, I ran FurMark, Prime95 played some games at the highest settings. And my temperatures are considerably lower, should probably mention that my graphics card is almost OCd to the max(it wasn't before) and my processor is also OCd. Can someone tell me what's going on?

    Well yeah, I know stuff just happens. I'm talking about a literal 10 degree C difference in temps both idle and load for the CPU and GPU ( no exaggeration).

    Looks pretty awesome there. I've been thinking about building an HTPC, I may just go your route, and put it right under the living room TV.:p

    it's a sweet case the only downside is that it sprays glitter out of the case fans so if you're not cool with glitter you will prob wanna replace those
