    It's much better then the alternative and if the op doesn't have time, tools, materials to sleeve his psu or money to buy one already done its a pretty good alternative

    Updated pics... Will try to take better soon, not that it really matters :) Went for the clean look. Wish the black cabled x750 supplies were out when I built this but all good. Will get time one day to sleeve them.

    I love the plastic car wire wraps, I just bought 20 feet to redo wiring in my Ford.

    Waiting on the adapter so I can use my front panel USB 3.0 which my motherboard doesn't have, but here is mine.
    And no I don't care about cable management since I can't see it when I put the side on...

    About the same way as having "unwrapped" wires in your case. Nothing detrimental in any way.

    New build from my previous i7 940 setup finally an upgrade!


    Just switched out the Corsair fans with my Scythe Gentle Typhoons and wow there is a huge difference in sound.

    One of the standoff screws broke on me while screwing it in sadly.

    Here is a few more pics with everything up and running normal even with 3 screws.

    Sucks that one of the standoffs broke:(

    I just installed a H100i on my secind rig in specs and love it. It is the first AIO water cooler I have used and am impressed with the temps.

    ^ While not a 100i, I LOVE my 80i. Temps have been outstanding and via the reviews, overclocked the 80i performs within 1c of a 100i. The windows interface has been really cool! Just cannot quite fit the 100i. And geeky to most, but I dig that you can set it to change colors with temp. For example at idle, the corsair logo is white. If under any load, she turns red.

    Curious why some changed out the fans on the 100i? The stock 80/100i fans are much more powerful than even the SP series and rated outstanding (same blade design - much higher RPM than SP series). While not as cool looking as the SP series and overall not awesome looking, why change to anything else when they perform outstanding?

    Joining in the H100i club :laugh:. It will be a while til I can save up for a good mobo and a custom water loop so bought something that is inexpensive compared to those two for now.

    ensabrenoir, VERY nice :) I dig it! Burning cash on the quad raid 0 though.. I know I went dual raid 0 ssd's previously.. Actually response time increased a bit which made it feel a micro tad less responsive in regular use - surfing.

    Random, VERY clean desktop!

    +1 internets to you sir for having a steins gate wallpaper ;)

    Finally got around to taking some snapshots of my new case from what i can gather from google its a very uncommon lian li witch makes it just all more special to me, has the classic internal layout and a sleek front bezel. its going to look much better when i get the hole cut out for the front power switch - im using a 22mm white ring vandal proof switch also modified the stock power and hdd led up top to white leds for just the HDD activity still a list of things that need to be chopped but need some $$$ first :eek:

    did some testing on the loudness of the pump after a few mods and i cant even hear it any more when the doors on the case are closed :D

    when i get my 570 sold gonna move to a passive 7750 and buy some parts to finish off the cpu loop for some passive goodness action.

    One word: Carpet

    You suck all the dust from the carpet right into your psu.
