    If you can, try to run the 8-pin power cable behind the mobo. If not, you could get an extenasion, or you could just try running the cable below the GPU between the slot and backplate.

    Long time lurker, first time poster and here is my first build. I'm currently waiting on RMA for my Corsair K90 Keyboard so I'm using this ancient Saitek Eclipse one for now haha.

    First build and you went ahead with liquid cooling and a good cable management, i see a brilliant future, simply great :rockout:

    Just one advice, i'll put some protection on the rad to avoid touching the fins in case of internal manipulation, some magnetic 120mm filters or grills, i'd go with the filters so you cover your rad fins and also you'll reduce the dust and hence the temps.

    Keep it up and welcome to TPU! :toast:

    I agree haha. I picked it up at Frys black friday sale like 6 years ago and it has been great ever since. I just miss the mechanical feel of my K90.

    The speaker(s) are a different story. I was bored and I've had them almost as long as my keyboard so me, being bored one day, I tried painting one (the left) and the right I used this craft paint stuff, so they look terrible but they still work great so I'm not complaining :rockout:

    Done! And thanks!

    Thanks a lot. I'll definitely look into that, thanks for the great advice :D

    Hahaha someone should tell that to 16 year old past me. To answer your question, no they are Enermax Magma fans.

    It's an old Yamaha vintage kit uses mahogany wood for the shells.

    I get asked that MANY times. I actually got it from Wishing Well like 8 years ago haha.

    Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome as well. I know I'm going to enjoy myself here :toast:

    Seeing how clean that H100i makes your PC look, I'm going to need to redo some of my cable management and post some updated pics... last pic I post it was a mess, lol:banghead:

    I find it amusing that you have the CPU running on a stock heatsink and a custom WC setup on the GPU :D
