The Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Club - Page 159

post #1581 of 2347
Taking into account what all of you said about the electrical stuff with the LEDs, I'm contemplating using a NZXT sleeved LED kit for the lighting of the arc reactor....

http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/101-sleeved-led-kit-case-accessory

just a question for those of you who have used this product before,

because i will be using it at the front of my case, i was wondering if I could use a NZXT 4-pin cable extension to connect the led strip to the PCI controller.

I don't see any reason it wouldn't work. From the look of the picture the power is supplied via molex connection and transferred through a 4 pin connected wire. Looks like you have a plan. Now make that bad ass mod come to life! Take pictures of the process to share with everyone so others can see how you made it all come together.

One question that readily comes to mind is how you're going to do that paint job? Do you do airbrush work or know someone who does? You've got two really interesting ideas here and if they come together like they are in your mind I think you'll have something worthy of a nomination for Mod of the Month for sure.

Finally, The weekend that my AX860i is installed.

First of all, just a quick look at the before the upgrade to the 860












And now, the AX860i with Red Sleeved Cables







Now the After CM Storm Enforcer with AX860i






















The AX860i is just AWESOME!! Between 91 - 99% Efficiency!!

The Cables looks great and the quality is just awesome!

The Only complain I have is that the Cables are short, and so rigid you can barely move them. Not much turning/bending near the connectors which makes it a bit harder to manage. Probably on a case with a lot more space at the back it wont have any problem, but with the space at the back and the length of the cable they barely fit.

But that's it, overall, I just love it!

That's just a little teaser showing the badly done cable management.. I'll be fixing this after my exams and then I'll be removing the bottom hard drive so I might move the ssd over there. Also looking to replacing the CPu cooler with maybe a Hyper 212 and I might change the rear fan for a Corsair 120mm (would add one for the top but I don't think it would impact cooling much)

Specs:

i5 3570K @ stock speeds
EVGA 670 FTW Sig 2 with dual fan cooling
Asus P8Z77 VLX (didn't want to spend the extra £20 for the LK)
Corsair 8GB Vengeance Ram @ 1600Mhz (BIOS always tries to put it back at 11333 whenever it gets the chance tongue.gif)
Sasmung 840 250GB
WesternDigital 1TB Caviar Black
Seagate Barracuda 2TB (backup drive)
XFX Pro 750W XXX Semi Modular, silver efficiency
Sony ODD
Storm Enforcer case.

Very nice result GeneratorJ. Safe to say that was a great investment. Cleaned up very nicely and rockin a little eye candy thumb.gif

Good lookin rig you have there metah23! What GPU card is that? 670? All I can make out is GTX6 and the rest is hiding in behind the pci power cable. I'm doing my second build right now which is going with a tuxedo color scheme and that card would be the perfect white cooler with black pcb board. Respond a link or something you've peaked my curiosity.

Really like the red cable sleeving job, looks nice and clean. Not a bad job on the management either, I think I heard somewhere that if you warm the cables up a bit it can make them a little more easy to bend around, maybe some light hair dryer action? Looks good regardless though.

Its not much of a big deal so I might just leave it for now. Its manageable and I wont be opening the back side much now anyway, until I get my new Graphics Card.
