Intel Core i5 3570k @ 3.8 GHz
XFX Radeon HD 6950
Corsair Dominator GT 8 GB
ASRock Z77 Professional Motherboard
Corsair HX 650 W PSU
Kingston Hyper X 3K 128GB SSD
Hitatchi 1TB HDD
LG Super Multi Blue BD-ROM / DVD Rewriter
TP-LINK TL-WN951N Wi-Fi Card
Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Nice build, but it would be optimal to turn your HD cages facing front for optimal airflow (the best airflow as stated by many: front and down fans sucking air and pushin out from back and up), just my 0,02$

If you are talking keyboards, the one in his video is a Logitech G710.

Those are Corsair SP120 Performance Edition fans.

They are EK-Coolant Blood Red, I'm changing to UV blue soon.

I'm using the XSPC fans that comes with the kit to pull air out of my radiator.

IMG_4172.JPG
Still hesitating to grab a used EVGA GTX680 that comes with its custom waterblock, so no waterblock for my 580. Using a 140mm placed on top of my PSU to cool my 580.

Intel burntest. 1.185 Vcore fixed voltage with level 2 LLC @ 4.4GHz.

Anyone have any idea where can I get those PSU covers to hide those ugly cable for this case?
This is the example, its from the CM HAF X

is that effective? I would think that the fan would just throw all the hot air from the PSU at your graph card, when it would normally be exhausted straight out the back, and starve your PSU for air.

I think the PSU cable cover on the HAF XM is a feature of that specific model and not an accessory you can buy for different cases. for that effect, you would probably need to mod your case.. something like this:

does anyone else here hate the hideous motherboard speaker? Why can't they have a different design for that darn thing, or build it into the motherboard or the case or something?

eh, it's a little ugly I guess. it only uses 2 leads so you could probably just clip the wires of an old case fan and run it behind the motherboard tray and splice it to the speaker leads.. I mean, really you don't "need" the speaker, right? it just tells you when it's POSTing, so if you have a board that gives POST codes, the speaker is ancillary.

You can actually order those HAF-X cable covers from Coolermaster, well at least this is what I did with Coolermaster europe, just contacted them via e-mail and ordered 2 of those for my Stormtrooper biggrin.gif
