"The psu cables aren't long enough to go around the back..."


Oh, trust me, they are. You just have to believe that they're long enough, and then make them want to stretch around the back.

hmm I like the huge rad but I like the fractal build better! amazing cable management however you can run the sleeved cables to look more erm controlled by having them come from above the GPU. Should also allow you to show off the GPU's EVGA GTX lip

Oh thx buddy, I have a lot more work to do with both systems. The Fractal design system will probably end up with better cable routing/ management, and maybe a watercooled treatment in a few days, the corsair system will be completely overhauled and will be all internaly contained. Just need some time now lol :)

hey yes thats a TFC Trib 123 fan, actually I heard a lot of horror stores about them but honestly (I got 10 of them, tested all) the ones I bought are very good....at about 7v they push a ton of air and are dead silent. I got them online for 3.99each, so i picked up as many as I could lol. I am actually planing on buying a alphacool monsta 240 (for my new build and slap those Tirb 123 fans on them). They could be better at 12v though, I believe they push around 150-170 cfm not 215 as stated (I have deltas that do 235 cfm so I can compare the two). The frame (if you hold it in hands) also flexes/ vibrates @ 12v, but at 7v you can beat them :)

Ah crap man 2 late for the 4 dollar deal. I got mine from heatsink factory (they were shipped from frozen cpu for some reason) but they are all sold out now...sry :(. I am checking your build right now :), it looks like a killer rad

*better keep this thread simple and clean, If you'd want to talk about the rads and other watercooling stuff, PM me. Mods might have to remove our comments :)

** have you checked out the members watercooling gallery? post your build there too.

Nice to see pushpull on a Corsair for once, not sure how thats going to affect Nb temps hidden under all that hehe, cables could be a fair bit better but not a bad build man,
Psu's not the best but time will tell if its up to the task :p
**Edit, @Freezed, I'd like to see a build log there man if you could? I'm initially intrigued but without more internal pics I can't slam your cable work Hehe

the H80 comes with two fans in the box, so push/pull is the way to go :) there is no NB, there's a msata port where the nb would've been on a vintage board.

@ syrupd - your cablemanging could do with some work! :p
1| move ODD to top most slot
2| route 12V EPS via behind mobo tray
3| the PCI-E power connectors seem to come from a good area of the case, another way is to have them come from above teh card near the area where you 24pin mobo connector has popped out.
4| cables from H80 and fan need some thought into routing them.

Hope this helps
