ram isn't an issue unless the slots are close enough to touch the fins, the front fan can be raised
the only issue i see is that some cables are sitting on top of the edge of my PSU fan. will this impede air flow?
I might take a pic of my case some other day when I have a real camera.. iphone quality is terrible
Aren't porn avatars still bannable?
You people with all your pretty cable management.
Curse you all, now I feel heavily encouraged to actually go through and cable manage my case.
Not sure what case to get.. one that preferably keeps it cool and quiet. I was going to get the 650d because of the steel and the side window, it just looks nice.
Any other suggestions though to save some pounds?
Braided cables are bad cable "management"
No it's for people who never do anything inside their PC who buy wooden furnishing for the case.
In Tennant's case, braids would look awesome. In a case like THIS, they would look terrible. This is why I implemented three levels of classification into the competition.
Damn folks, why so serious about a competition that's giving away FREE stuff to those who try for it?
That looks pretty stylish
My HDD's are in removable bays anyways so you cant even see the wires, nevertheless nice job
SATA power cables are the bane of my existance, especially when the idiot that designed the cable layout for my PSU decided that it would be a great idea for the cables to be positioned awkwardly
I can't get a picture right now, I'll try and get one, but the plugs have to go in basically upside down so the wire toward the next plug is pointing downwards instead of upwards towards the next drive
During my build I found Cable Management the most painful of it all. I don't know if it's my case or my incompetence but I basically got a half assed job done.
Tower in question:
My "cable management" or lack thereof.
My tower has little to no room for cable management. The other side panel doesn't have any room for the power cords let alone all the other cables running through little jr here.
I have an mATX case and mine looks nicer than that...
It's not too difficult, I just picked up my computer and plopped it down on my desk at 4 in the morning, only took me 30 minutes. Just take every cable coming out of your power supply and hang it out of the side of your case. Then, start plugging in the main power cables, pci-e, mobo, cpu. Once you have all of those plugged in, bring the leftovers hanging over the motherboard to where the hard drive cages are and just stuff them in somewhere or zip tie it. Then plug in peripheral power, you should be able to take one whole cable, have the last plug go into your optical drive, then shove the rest of that cable in another 5.25" bay. Same with the hard drive power. Then shove any unused cables anywhere they'll fit that doesn't ruin the rest of the look.
Just gave it another go. This is the end result. I still can't get the big cables out of the drive bay but I just learned of module power supplies. Apparently in the future that would be the best thing for me to get. Till then, this will do.
I even managed the drop the temp on my GPU by 10 degrees (was 54)
thats a nice case, looks sweet
what case is that?
