I guess some cable management is better than none. Case is a Cooler Master Elite 310. Open to comments and suggestions.

more cable ties. Everything is out of the way, but if you could bunch the multi-colored leads around the board it would appear much cleaner. Fold that extra 4-pin behind the wiring and tie it, clean up near the PSU and it would be top notch;)

a few pictures and an update - apparently i fried the board when i was bleeding the loop asus has already approved my RMA just need to get them to send me the number and tell me were to ship it. i did thankfully have a backup board ready for just such an occasion.

and to answer a few questions yes my loop is "backwards" i did it because of the limited space i have to work with and because i can get the silent box to push up the video card and prevent any sagging on the ass end of the card the stiff tubing going to the video card is also proping up the mid point of the card so in essence the video card is being held up by 4 points ; case, pcie socket, inlet tubing, and the dcc silent-box

another reason i decided to go that route with the loop design is because of the list of what i want out of my pc in this order

compact design
silence
performance (overclock)
temps

as far as im concerned as long as i can tote it around with me to lans with no issues about it being heavy as hell or too bulky to carry and it stays quiet in its corner so that i can leave it on 24/7 without the whoosh or buzz of high end components i could care less how warm it runs and as of right now its doing just that for me so its 100% what i want right now.

sorry for the rambling just wanted to get that out there :eek:

Just a question about it. Do you think this rig with a 2gigs 1M cache instead oc to 2.25 gigs paired with an HIS IceQ 4670 1gig DDR3 AGP 8X could play well with Battlefield 2 multiplayer? It's my backup so I would reinstall it with seven 64 bits and play online. Thx!

Moved into the Prodigy, pretty much same system specs minus the RAM (new 2x8gb kit is on the way from Amazon) and going push pull on the H100 (SP120 High Performance Push and Stock H100 on low for pull).

It was hectic trying to move cables out the way, especially with my essentially non-modular PSU, but overall I think its clean enough. Had the Lightning removed in the pic so the internals can be seen.



Took a pic to make sure the card would fit prior to the build:

I feel a little outdated as it appears most people are going for the smaller cases when in fact I just received a Corsair Obsidian 800d (holy shit this thing is huge:eek:) to place my rig in.

The Obsidian lineup is still outstanding. I would still be running the 650D, but I decided I needed the extra space on my desk for my new mATX SFF rig I built and for other random projects. Think I will be boxing up the 650D and storing it until I have the room to build it back out. Definitely post up pics of your 800D when it is setup :toast:

I have some water cooling parts (res, fittings, tubbing, etc..) coming from Performance-pcs.com. I have decided to stay with my current rig as it still performs at a high level. I will post some pics when time allows. Being recently married, working full-time and coaching high school volleyball has left me little time (and money) for the things I really enjoy:(

I also purchased two OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB SSD's to install...
Not sure whether to place them in a Raid 0, or just leave them independent. I have read/heard that with SSD's you do not see that much gain from a RAID array.
