    Its more heat efficient, since hot air rises you don't get the hot air from the graphics card to the cpu, it makes its own wind tunnel

    I admit sometimes cable management can be really hard, but most of the time It's not THAT hard. I don't know, I just can't imagine not spending time doing it. Especially if I've got a window.

    No, it's that he bought a card with an oversized cooler that really doesn't do much but bend the card.

    I just did the impossible; I was able to do nice looking cable management in my Raidmax Smilodon case. Mind you, there literally is no cable management space, so I did some fine tucking and cable routing tricks that make it look nice on the inside. I'll prolly take pictures in a bit to show you all.

    There's like barely any difference between the two besides how the motherboard is installed.

    The rest is pretty minor externally.

    But the RV-02 does look a bit cleaner.

    I don't get why people have cable management troubles, especially those with really good cases. My 690 is horrid for cable management, but I can make it work if I put like an hour of effort into it.



    I mean if I do it with fucking this



    Surely some of you can do better. Hell, I even pulled it off with a non modular PSU.

    I was really lazy with my cable management.

    I'm not going to put in much effort until the rest of my Bitfenix cables arrive. Plus I need to buy some more zip ties.

    It's actually not that bad for cable management. The orientation of your HDD bay means that the HDD data and power cables go straight to the back cavity. You don't have CM holes, but the shortened MB tray acts in basically the same manner. Your case is also generally pretty spacious and it doesn't look like you have many bays full. Still, this stuff doesn't detract from the fact that you actually spent time and effort and ended up with clean look and airflow.




    Don't remember if I have posted these yet.

    What is that card-supporting doohickey you have there? I noticed my card was bending the other day and I ordered a cardkeeper, but I like the look of yours better. My thing is plastic and it looks like it will get in the way if I add a second card with heatpipes that go over higher than the top of the PCB.

    If you moved cables a round and used zip ties it would most likely fit.

    After realising that was ridiculous i started from scratch and it came out like this:
