I may contact Seasonic about a new set of cables if I do decide to mod the set i got that way I have a spare set in case I bork up the current set. If I do redo the mobo cables I will cut them even shorter that why I can get rid of the loop that is in there and increase the air flow. I know that I will have to make a custom cable for the drive bays. I'm planning on paracord as my sleeve material because I hope it will be easy to work with on a ~4-5 inch whip for the mobo.

How are you temps with that nice NH-C14? Does it fit with the pipes looking at the bottom of the case? I would like to use it to ccol my passive 5770.

I stay in the mid 40C's idle and 60Cish on load with my Q9550. My real reason for buying it was because is north bridge and mosfets weren't getting enough air and they were hitting 75C+ but now my system has dropped 25-30C and never gets above 45C and that makes me happy enough.

I'm not sure if there is enough air flow to cool a gpu also. The air may disperse more if the bottom fan isn't installed but I wouldn't take my word on it. If you want to passively cool your gpu with your Cpu heat sink your best bet is to get a tower that you can point at the gpu. I assume you want something that wraps over the back of the card.

On my board I can't fit my any other way other then what it is now. If you have an inverted case like the A05 then I don't believe you can install the C14 with the ends of the heat pipes up without cover the PCI slot that is closest to the CPU socket, it may even cover the 2nd also. And Noctua recommends not to install the cooler with the ends of the heat pipe down. See image attached.

Now that I have lower profile ram I may end up flipping the cooler 180 degrees so I can use the rear fan more effectively.

Update time.

I was going to cut the templates for my top and bottom fans today but the water jet at work was full today after work. I will try again tomorrow.

Also my five Noctua NF-P14 FLX's were on back order from the place I ordered them. I had the option to wait 2 weeks or more or cancel the order, so I canceled it. Its a dam shame too because I was only paying $20 a pop instead of ~$27. Time to try somewhere else or maybe just order from the Egg. I really don't want to pay full price for five $25+ fans + shipping.

Edit: Well it look's like I'm buying from Amazon. They are $25 a piece and qualify for free shipping.thumbsupsmiley.png

Sleeving cables (for 100% modular psus) doesn't void your warranty right? Anyways, I can't wait to see this.

I'm not sure to be honest. I haven't really done much research on it.

no when you send it back they just want the psu

but if you kill the psu because you wired it back WRONG then its your fault

Squeezing 1 140mm fan in the top of and A05N is impressive. Get 2 and you get some great air flow. 3? Now that's just for bragging rights.

I love the water jet at work. This is just my template to make sure my measurements are correct. And wouldn't you know it, I got it right the first try. *knocks on desk*
0607011712.jpg

Looks like it was made for the NF-P14, Oh wait it was. Just shows you how close it actually is in there.

Ok enough of the top top panel. Lets go down below. I admit I did zero planning when it came to the placement of the bottom fans and ran into a few hiccups. doh.gif

Well for starters the template doesn't fit inside of the case frown.gif
0607011733.jpg

And that means the Psu hangs over the fan. But no big deal I have 3/8 in of room that the template took up.
0607011733a.jpg

And this one came out of the blue. Another one that we can give to my being lucky.
0607011737.jpg

0607011738.jpg

Don't worry though. There is plenty of room for 2 of them down there.
0607011739.jpg

0607011739a.jpg

But the most awesome hiccup of all!! Can anyone guess?

Let's take a break from the case and fans for now. On to my graphics cards.

My XFX 5770. Beast little card. Hits 1000/1375/1.2v but pushes 75C with the stock fan roaring. So I picked up a Setsugen 2. Eventually I will pick up a second for my other 5770.

0607011637.jpg

0607011636a.jpg

All sinked up. Don't worry I cleaned the gpu better.

0607011710.jpg

And mounted. Soo pretty... Some of you may notice my the issue. I have a plan for the remedy.
0607011756a.jpg

0607011757.jpg

Oh did I mention one of these will be in the top two slots. And it fits. thumb.gif Btw the cooler is bent/sagging not my card.

0607011802a.jpg

Well I guess that does it for this update. It was a pretty big one. Next I have to transfer the 3x140 to the top panel and they figure out how its gonna to mount in the jet bed and then be all square and perfectly lined up. Still not sure how though.

I love this little case. I don't risk a hernia lifting my computer anymore.
