Absolutely amazing! 10/10 ! Because I don't feel like bogging the TPU server with more then one copy of pictures of my computer, just go to www.techpowerup.com/gallery/239 .
Very nice 9/10
d00d, hella cool! Great job! 10/10
one of the cleanest ive seen.10/10
Did you cut holes for your wires in your mobo tray? This makes me want to rewire mine again... I think I might do that when I get my new cooling parts tomorrow. Damn DFI for needing so many power connections.
*Waits for marklebb to reply and own all.*
Tonite, once I finalize (max-out) my memory timing chain tightenings here?
This is going to be a project for myself as well!
I am going to "bite off your style" there sladesurfer, & reverse my disks so the SATA cables are less obtrusive, and run my power cables around the BACK of the drive cages... and, if possible, hide my DvD EIDE & Floppy disk cable as well (round types on both) as you have.
(Got the ideas from your photos, & imo, as well done as it gets)
I think I can do this...
* As is, my system is FAR neater than others I had done in the past (I have posted comparison photos, almost night & day) because of what I have gained here the past 3 months now (almost that long).
It may seem like common-sense on how to make a case interior neater, but you do hit walls in cable lengths, places to run them thru or hide them in, etc.!
(Plus, imo & experience @ least? Today's case designs are FAR more "intelligent" too as well, & lend themselves to neater interiors, better cooling, & materials used etc.)
BUT, I was never much good @ it... learning as I go though, via examples provided to me here!
P.S.=> I'll post photos in here once I am done!
(I got a new LED light rear exhaust topmost case fan too)
So I am NEAR to the point where I would put a photo into the case galleries as an entry there from myself!
However, the standards here are high, so this needs doing on the lit up fan, some fan grills on my CPU & that rear LED fan, & 2 cathode lights (@ top & bottom of case) PLUS, hiding cables to-the-max as well...
Good inspiration this one! apk
Looking forward of your Rig
wow these look really nice. where do you learn how to clean up your computer and hide stuff? lol cause i dont want mine to look like a mess when i make it so i want to learn how to hide stuff and make it look nicer.
Cable ties, If you can hide them behind your mobo tray hide them..... Tape stuff with elctrical tape in hidden areas.... modetly hiding them behind alot of objects... Ive found to hide them behind my mobo tray, and cd bays..
It's always about planning when putting all the parts together. Just look at your case and see if you can wire all the cables in your head. Visualize
Slade surfer, I give you a 9 simply because theres a lot of slack on those water tubes
Otherwise, ya cant do much more
heres a pic of my main system.
wires are fairly neat inside, but I have so many pipes it looks like a mess from this angle. specs are in sig
heres my newly build secondary system, with my old 2500 unlocked barton (remember those days?) NF7-S, gig of corsiar, and a new x850 pro, unsuccesfull at unlocking the last 4 pipes, but it does run 24/7 stable at 575/575.
agggg i know its a stock heatsink, but hey, it runs at 12x200mhz completely prime stable for days, though you really dont wnat to know how hot it is
complete specs on 2nd system
XP 2500 @ 12x200 = 2.2ghz 1.85vcore
Abit NF7-S V2.0
Corsair 1024 MB PC 3200 (2x 256 + 1x 512 in dual channel) 2-3-3-5
BBA X850 Pro flashed to XT, though still 12 pipes, @ 575/575
Antec Neo HE 430 PSU
Zalamn heatsink thingy I originally bought for my 6800, but then went WC'ing so now its on my x850. I cant rember the model # though
Plextor DVD RAM drive
Hitachi 120 gig SATA HDD
Both pics taken with Nikon D70S in manual mode, f/18, 1/20th second shutter, pop up flash (hence the crappyness of the lighting)
My current "In Progress" although, now without the sli-dr, but still same psu.
My project MaelSTROM from http://www.xtremepc.org/forum/showthread.php?p=22378#post22378 .
Not done yet, but will be, come midseptember - october.
some cable management
custom case for my G/F
awesome cabling everyone, your an inspiration to many
I wish i had the luxury of time to pull everything out and start again
thanks for sharing your photos
slade...show us the dirty side
AHAHAH... you see one 3.3 volt cpu fan cable slightly less than taut and he hangs his head in shame
Sladesurfer!: You just started this thread becasue you knew you were gonna win! Didnt you?!
Lot of other tidy cases here aswell. Im impressed!
nice job sladesurfer. i would post some pics of mine but my case is small and there are not too many places to hide stuff. but i did both of my roomies computers and i will post pics of themn tomorrow. and i guess some of mine too!
Not sure HOW tidy those pics in my sig are(later pics should be with Seasonic PSU which has thinner cabling then the Tagan I started with) but I try my best in the tight space I have.
@sladesurfer: How do YOU like your Asetek Xternal unit?(your the only other user I have seen with one)
Im "okay" with it. I have replaced all the Addas with SilenX fans but it still annoys me the way they resonate against the Rad no matter what I try. Temp wise I have no complaints.
This is cool. Good job!
