    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Nah it isn't to close. The sub is a good foot away from the hdd's. Plus you have the case two or three layers of metal and wood between them.

    A steel case would be shielded on top of the shielding on the hdd itself. We're not talking about a CRT monitor, but to be on the safe side, I don't place my sub right next to my tower. My UPS and the leg of the table separates them in my case.

    this is my PC as of last week, re-did some cables

    to stop my 12 inch 7970 from dropping i used a bread tie to tie it to my 500r so it was even and no more drooping. ghetto fix for the win.

    he2 :D i just plan to get the same cooler
    you should rotare the fan so the cable on the bottom side near the board tray so the cable wont seen :toast:
    and to hold the cooler i guess try using black cable ties. its much better than you tie the fan cable

    I don't have any spare black ties currently, and I don't know where to buy them on the cheap. Also, the cable management is fine for me, I know it is not perfect but I am just an amateur and this is my first computer build ever, hoping it lasts me a 3-4 years without anything dying.

    You very well could screw up the space/time continuum by purchasing modern components and then traveling back in time. I bet you are owning everyone who are running Fx-55s and 6800 Ultras at the lan parties.

    My setup has changed once again with my new rig and all. :toast: For the record I despise this case, but I had no choice as the friend I bought it from didn't want to part it out lol.

    I actually like random's case. Also, it makes the rear exhaust GPU all that more useful, no need for a side fan in all honesty.

    also nice water cooling rig ^ impressive. I might make the the jump to a custom loop rig when Haswell comes out.

    @cold storm

    hows the EK brand for the waterblocks and stuff? so far a friend of mine used larkooler and it's bad, imo now I'm thinking into using water cooling and after swift tech but seems it's not easy finding a complete set for that on a reasonable price >.<
