So I recently discovered there is a place behind the motherboard for wires.... (yes I know I'm a nub) :D

So I decided that some cable management was in order....



I wrote about the steps I took on my webpage, also since then I have ordered a rounded IDE cable, and SATA power splitter so I can move the SATA power completely behind mobo:

Let me know what you think, and any tips you have to improve it even more.

I'm also thinking of maybe cutting out the side of the case and putting plexiglass if I can do it cheaply... We'll see... ;)

Good work. This is only the beginning though, soon you'll get all MacGuyver style when you're doing your wires and you won't be able to see them at all.

Agreed with the above, nice job, but the rosewill is just... bleh...

Also, out of curiosity, any particular reason for not having a SATA DVD drive?

Well looks better than before , and it does not bother me the PSU , if it does the job its good .

Ok the eye candy look , will cost extra on PSUs , sleeved cables etc etc .

But who cares ... :)


This tower look similar to my HEC tower ...

Not true, the PSU is the most important part of the system. POS is warning of the PSU because he had his Rosewill kill out and take the rest of his system with it.

I had a Hiper take out my main rig once and i had a Rosewill take out my home server/2nd rig before. Then i had a Xclio take out my main rig after getting it fixed. so as you can tell i have used cheap PSUs and have paid more for it in the long run :banghead: now i am with a good brand(Silverstone) may have paid more for it then the other PSUs but its been great.

Yeah, I know, people always tell me the PSU is crap. :laugh:

Well, it has been going strong for over a year, with a 3850/8800gt and now the 4870, so I don't know. :)

I mean, I'd love a modular power supply, but I think the only reason I'd upgrade is if I ever went crossfire, since 550w is not going to cut it.

Although, right now another 4870 would run into my HD's, so meh.

Also, out of curiosity, any particular reason for not having a SATA DVD drive?
I didn't know they existed when I built the rig. :D

I can give you some advice on those SATA cables. Take a nice long screw driver, phillips or standard..doesn't matter, and basically coil the sata cable around it. It's a simple mod to shorten them up and when you tuck them away you'll hardly notice them. Overall though your wire cleanup looks good :toast:

I watched fireworks on a 420watt PSU and a x1800xtx ...litterally sparks flying snaps and crackles ..a very traumatic experiance...I was running for the power cord like a friggin mad scientist running for the spilling beaker.:roll:

I was testing if the PSU would handle the GPU for a member of TPU a while back ..like when the X1800XTX first came out...lol

Nice idea, I'll have to try that when my new ide cable/power splitter comes tomorrow.

just because it has been working for you so far doesn't mean that it won't go and take your rig with it.

Those Ros-not-well PSU's are junk. Have a looksy at some Coolermaster, Enermax, Antec, Corsair, or even FPS PSU's. Those would be a million times more reliable than that Roswell and I'm sure you can find one that's not going to break the bank.

Yeah, there is a point there. But then again, I have heard of high-end PSU's crapping out as well.

After all, most brands are probably made in the same factory over in China anyhow. :laugh:

Well , i never had a damage caused by the PSU .

I love my ultra high quality HIPER ...
But i am not cheap dog ... I have 1000W APC SMART-XL UPS, as safety net , and yes cost to me 400 EUROS ..

PSUs are like humans , i they get a stroke , they all go to intensive care . :D

i have heard of high-end PSUs dieing too but it doesn't happen as much and alot of the time if it does it doesn't take out the rig with it. i don't know why it doesn't :confused:

My experience with high end PSU's crapping out is either it was damaged during shipping or user error. I had a Nspire 750W that I thought was the shit. After 3 months my system would just randomly reboot, could be 3hrs of gaming or 5min of watching a movie..didn't matter. I tested it and even threw it in another system which it didn't have problems with. Finally figured out the PSU couldn't handle the load my system was putting on it..I only had 2 3870's, not 2 3870X2's at the time. I bought the Corsair 750W and not once have I had an issue due to the PSU. I'm Corsair for life now(besides their memory).

I am not get married with brands .

I select the best device , no matter the brand.
And i always protect my self , from the ripoff brands.

Any brand has more than 30 models.

They do not cost the same , their not the same .

What people usually do , when they build a complete system,
are to cut corners , so to round up the price.

Usually , they care less about the PSU .
They remember their mistake , after the damage .

Still though, I have had this PSU for about 15 months, leaving my computer on 24/7, and I have had 0 issues. I think that at least proves that it is an 'o.k.' PSU. At least that is my opinion.

For my next build, I will probably get a high end psu, since hopefully I will have the spare money for it. But right now, swapping out the PSU is not high on my list. If it ain't broke don't fix it, right?

Well thats true ...

Does it gets hot after an hour of gaming .. Hot = 45 C hot air coming out.

If that's the the 750w version I have been running on it for about 8 months now with no issues except the cable sleeves are a bit of a pain. Powers my my Athlon x2 6400+ and dual 9600 gt's without a hitch. If you look at the reviews on newegg.com there is a good bit of bad reviews on it, mostly DOA's though. Im thinking about cutting the sleeves off and just wrapping it every few inches with electrical tape lol. My first post at TechPowerUp but looks to be a great spot to bang my head against the wall with others

Great job at managing those cables! It looks like your case restricts much air flow anyways, so it's a good idea to allow for the most optimal air flow for your setup. Once suggestion would be to finish up those sata cables, maybe tuck them above the drives or below. That helps the added fan to push more air to the gpu.

Off topic: Your PSU could stand to be upgraded, but are you overclocking? If your at stock then your fine as long as you havn't had any issues prior.
