Very good build for a first one! Clean and everything seems to be done right! The psu looks a bit big tho. What wattage is it?
post #3812 of 4610
It is an EVGA nex650g. I wanted a nice psu, because I'm planning on upgrading to xfire soon.

I also bought an NZXT sleeved blue led light kit. I think the blue black and red color scheme should look great.

I have almost the same setup as you, if you want to overclock it get a water cooler thumb.gif

Yea, I'm gonna look for either a H80 or a phanteks ph-tc14pe. Might wait til black friday for the upgrades. But for now the stock 4300 works fine.

does anyone want to TRY to help me figure out how to swing the motherboard tray 90* and put my 360 rad at the back? ive wanted to try it for quite some time now but, i get frustrated cause it isnt normal to have your cables come from the TOP of the case!

They make cases like that though. With the I/O panel at the top. I could only imagine that it would take a lot of modifying to accomplish this on any other case.

oof course they make 2(?) cases like that but it doesnt mean its normal. i know it will take a lot of modding but, its what i want to do. just a rough pain trying to figure out how to detach the motherboard tray and i/o shield and reattach to the top. after that, make a rear panel to hold the 360 and fans. and to finish it off, the top would need to be a cover of sorts to hide all the wiring and cabling coming from the i/o shield. a dvi cable connector is a long mofo. the case will instantly be a minimum 1 inch taller. on the plus side, true straight through air flow with a bonus of the 670s(or whatever i upgrade to) will be vertical with less pressure on the pci-e slots and less sagging...
no i dont want to buy a new case. there only a few cases that are 90* rotated. i dont like them and have put too much time into modding mine.
