    Got myself a new case to replace ye olde Fortress FT02. Corsair 540 white and 3 new fans to load up the front panel. I moved the 2 factory 140mm to the roof (http://www.cougar-world.com/au/products/fans/cfd_white_led_fan.html) :) I have to admit, possibly the best 120mm fans I have ever had. Better than Noctua imo.

    Case with new fans

    One of my 280x cards is in for repair for a craptacular fan. Moved the 780 back into the main rig.

    SO damn easy to make a clean looking build when I can just vomit the cables here;

    Also the Galaxy Note 3 I used for taking the pics has pretty hopeless camera. My old Xperia S was much better in the camera department, even the X10 was probably on par if not better.

    I can tell you have no small children in the house. That TV wouldn't last a day balanced on that tiny stand if you did.

    Nice, very clean. Where did you get those SATA cables? I'd like to get some myself :)

    Nope its 1/4" wood dowel with 1/4" rubber screw caps on it. I guess if I wanted to get the proleet case mod setup I'd paint the dowel black or use some heatshrink sleeve lol

    its not pretty but I like the functional look. Atleast the cable management is pretty well done lol.

    All in all, an astonishing case, never had a full black and a spacious one before, I still might add some lights to it, that's what the window is for :D
    Still need to do some work on the cable management at the back as it looks like a mess tbh...

    I'll have to give it a try. Even with a fairly light card in the second PCIEx16 slot it always tend to droop unless I add tension to the power cabling - something I'm pretty reluctant to do for obvious reasons.

    First try making a zip tie loop with small zip ties through any available holes on the circuit board near the power connectors. Then run a big zip tie through it and up into any thing you can hook it to.

    Unfortunately both are in short supply. I used to use an old exhaust valve from my Chrysler small block - similar to this
    [​IMG]
    Depending on the spring length/tension you use and which groove the lock sits in (or machine in another to suit) they are remarkably stable. I just used a large diameter washer on top of the spring retainer - the edge of which then sat under the bottom edge of a set of waterblocked GTX 280's to support them. Basically a sturdier, better looking version of this
