Reason I ask is I watched a video on the Gigabyte Windforce cooler and it blows the hot air out the side of the card which got me thinking that I should have my side fans blowing that air out of the case. Opinions?

I used the side fans as exhaust for a bit but I never saw any temp differences with my 680 Lightning.

So, I'm in the market for a portable storage drive of at least 500gb preferably 1tb and I figured I should get something that would allow me to utilize the X dock. What drives are you guys using?

I have a question.....

Does anyone know if the cables from a SeaSonic M12II 750W PSU are long enough to take advantage of the Strykers built in cable management behind the motherboard?

If not... I'm looking for some cable extensions....
I found the NZXT cable starter kit from Amazon for $20 (Newegg surprisingly did not carry this) but it is black... and since I will be getting the Stryker and not the Trooper, I would prefer the cable extenders to be white.... which NZXT does NOT have a starter kit for... and sold individually they cost around $45!! O_o

Any advise on this matter is greatly appreciated.

I have a seasonic 860w platinum PSU(fully modular) and the cables do reach to the CPU power and motherboard connectors, but only barely(I can't really speak for the M12II). But the cables look terrible. I would paracord sleeve them but all I have is coyote brown. If you do need cable extensions, the best looking ones(IMO) are the bitfenix alchemy Cables. And those come in white. And some other colors. I'm not sure if there is a pack of them, I'm pretty sure you would have to buy them individually.

What is a good place to order said cable extenders....? Newegg and Amazon are failing me... which doesn't happen too often... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

As you can see above... the two PSU covers fit rather nicely. This completely eliminates the need for a modular PSU. Not too bad for $16 shipped from the CMStore! thumb.gif
I realise that this was posted a while ago - But does anyone know where I can get hold of these in the UK (or an alternative)?

It looks like the PSU cover for the Cooler Master HAF -X:

http://www.cmstore-usa.com/haf-x-psu-cover/

And the modder put 2 of them in there, then custom labeled it "TUF Inside" probably with vinyl stickers or something. And if he is indeed using a Trooper case, I'm so getting a pair of them for myself and painting them white for the Stryker!

Reading this forum has made a very impatient monster out of a other wise patient and level headed man. My parts needs to get shipped to my front door NAO!!!! gunner.gif

Oh, and btw, they are only $2.99 a piece....

and they are woefully out of stock.... doh.gif
