The PSU has been going strong now for 2+ years. I would like to get a new one, but i'm saving for an i5. The added voltage for the overclock isn't that high, my calcs were a fair bit lower than 537 W.:shadedshu
I think the first thing you need to worry about is the major dust build up in your system in that second pic it looks like it's about to become a sentient dust bunny think about fan filters they save a shitload of cleaning
also you do realize your killing you PSU quicker by running all that on it
an OC'd CPU and GPU + all those HDD's = Minimum PSU Wattage: 537 W
As for the dust... tell me about it, i hat just wiped the whole case clean 2 weeks prior to that pic, it builds up so damn fast. I can;t get hold of any filters without getting them imported from the US which is just too expensive. I tried using a pair of the wife's tights, but the dust built up so quickly on them that the fans had blown them off after a week.
Thanks. I'm not sure where i can get a piece of thin aluminium to do that, but i'll keep my eye out. I'm not sure i could do it tho, as i have a fan down there that takes up a lot of the floor of the case. I think it'd look much better if i sprayed the inside black, but i don;t have any real space to spray paint as i live in an apartment and it'd be a full day project. Maybe when i upgrade i will wash the whole thing out and take it outside somewhere to spray.If you can find a way to get a piece of aluminum, then you can bend it into shape and cover the PSU area. Like it can go in front of the PSU then along the mobo tray towards the HDD cage. Then you can route the wires behind it neatly zip tied together or something and they won't be seeing. If you can do it nicely, it'll look good.
As far as your sleeving, it didn't come out bad bro, sleeving takes a lot of practice dude.
