    I'd say it's the same cable too, was just saying I think it would be better going in the bottom but also coming back out the bottom the GPU.

    Complete mix up here I agree :laugh: An honestly my eye's are horrid, I shouldn't try point out anything to anyone :slap::roll:

    Look up. Look way up.
    :laugh: Hahaha yes you are both right.

    @Pantherx12: The red cables you highlightes are the PCIe power cables, the pink ones are the SATA power connectors.

    @Techtu: I route all cables back out through a routing hole as close to the level to where they will be plugged into on the board.

    It only makes the most logical sense. It also helps prevent wires getting mixed up and tangled with other wires while doing maintenece/cleaning/upgrading. Your way would have those GPU cables passing through the 2 front USB3 port wires, 3 SATA cables and the PWR/RST/LED/HDD wire. I also have it set up to acommodate the 2nd HD 7970 I will be installing next month. :)

    Nice fans! And yeah, you can see the 5850's in the background on the left, in the FX-8150 rig.


    :laugh: That it does. That's the card I use for reviews, so it really doesn't belong, and is trying to hide! :roll:

    It did help me get over 50k in Vantage though!

    Ohh my. take that XFX one out. doesnt match I like what it looks like with just the 3 reference!

    You still need to ditch all 3 and get a GTX690 though.

    I had to take a third look just to notice the fourth card in that pic, and I doubt that's its permanent home.

    @Kevin - Nice Nerf headset:toast::laugh:

    Moved the rad to the front of the case so I could run push/pull...it's actually held in place with cable ties for now, but seems to work fine

    A Palit? It's done well for games for me thus far...I actually have a 92mm on the side panel right above it as exhaust...I'm trying to deal with the probably ~150w that's getting thrown off by the radiator.

    never underestimate the power of cable ties

    to help with the excess heat in the case you could still do push/pull from that 120mm fan on the back it just takes putting the second fan (pull) on the outside of the case (you may need to cut out the fan grill though)

    I tried that, but then the rad would have to go directly against the back of the case...and I'm not sure how to squish it there. Maybe if I de-rivet the tiny piece right above the back fan, then it could be made to work

    Does it not just fit anyways?

    The only trouble I've had with AIO water coolers is cases with horizontal support bars. ( Old TT cases need the bar cut away in order to fit these)

    Nah, there's a small steel piece riveted on that is for the tool-less side panel attachment (which I don't like). Even if I remove that, I don't think that there is enough space under the PSU & above the indentation for the expansion slots :ohwell:

    The only problem I see is too many SSD's. Let me help you with that by taking a few off your hands...

    That's a cute picture of you in the corner...

    The only thing I would have done different would have been to turn the top rad around so the tubes were at the front. Then the CPU out tube could go straight into the top GPU. Would have given you a slightly cleaner look. It's pretty clean though as it is.
