As long as cable management is fine ill try, I get my AX750 today so ill see what i can do, Airflow from the front is still gonna be good right?

And here we go biggrin.gif

First thought:

The quality isn't as bad as I expected it to be, after reading a couple of reviews and comments.

Second thought:

It is a bit bigger, as I imagined it would be. But still a nice size.

Third thought:

I'm going to break my fingers trying to install the hardware and a water cooling in it.

But all in all ... 50

And a quick shot with my crappy cellphone-cam. Sorry about that. Better pictures will follow

1. hum... as far as i know, the reviews has always given it a good to excellent on quality. you may have gotten some reviews from lian li fanboies smile.gif

2. as far as size, it's "bigger" because it actually allows tower sized heatsinks to be installed in the box. try and squeeze a NH-D14 in anything smaller then this box biggrin.gif

3. well, that's the price you pay for working with small form factor cases biggrin.gif but once everything is done, it'll be worth it.

Yeah, I think they made it the perfect size. It's small in terms of height and depth, but wide enough to fit massive air coolers into.

I'm loving my new build now! Initially, I thought that the fans on my Noctua cooler were loud (they're PWM fans), but the automatic fan control was turned off in the BIOS so they were running at max speed all the time. I've turned that on and it's lovely and quiet. biggrin.gif

Just wanted to share my updated build.. Top left is the old look. I've now swapped to Sandy Bridge from my old X58 i7 930. Lovin it!

I can't remember who; but someone mentioned the Noctua U9B SE2 once. And then I looked it up; cos they said it handled their 2500K no sweat OC'd. And you were right! I love it! It's small; compact; and easy to mount. Isn't loud either. 4.5ghz 1.325v I don't pass 65 degrees on the hottest core even in Intel burn Test. XD

very clean build smile.gif only suggestion i have is maybe rotating the AP181 90 degrees counter-clockwise so the wires are closer to the back of the mobo tray. since you've already taken tons of time doing your cables, might as well go the extra step and stealth the fan cables smile.gif

Can anyone recomend a good soundcard that will fit with this case, the gene v motherboard, and a 3slot cooler on my gpu? I want something thats better than the asus xonard dx, which I had before, but at the same time not so big like the ASUS Xonar D2X, which surely wount fit? Everyone have their gpu on the slot closest to the cpu right? So how will a soundcard in the 1x slot at the top affect temps? Would be fun to try creative for once, anyone got some recomendations? Gonna be used for games/music/movies, with my beyerdyanmic dt770 pro and some proson speakers, so im not an audiophile but like good quality audio.

shouldn't affect the temps too much. unlike stacking 2 GPU's together, the D2X will simply be blocking airflow but not producing another 200w of heat to compound the problem smile.gif the triple slot cards do a great job in cooling to begin with,(that's why they are quiet compared to the 2 slot cards) I think your gpu may warn up by 1C higher then normal if you use the D2X. not really anything to sweat over. if the airflow really bothers you, use electrical tape and tape a little 2 to 3mm spacer on the triple slot card to ensure the sound card doesn't rest right on top of it. 2mm should be plenty of room for the fan to do its job considering how well the triple slot card cools to begin with.

Thanks, so I can fit even the biggest soundcards in here?biggrin.gif sounds nice. Do you know if anyone in this thread has posted pics with their soundcards? Dont know if ive seen any really
