Beautiful build let down by the single glaring omission that I'm surprised no-one has mentioned yet:

PCI and 24-pin power cables of a variety of colours stick out like a sore-thumb.

If you'd just get some sleeved extensions or even go at them with that permanent marker, it would be close to perfect. As it stands now, those cables just JUMP out of the build and lower the effect considerably.

Otherwise, all is beautiful and well done.

I agree, as my post stated unequivocally.

I hold nothing against anything, but simply offer honest critique as to how one could perfect an already almost perfect looking build.

While deciding on wether to move onto a TJ08-E case, I decided to do a few minor adjustments to "Night Fire"  First of all was to finally remove the 200m big boy Antec fan on top. I was still suffering from negative case pressure no matter what I did, trying to volt mod the fan didn't work worth a damn earlier and only by adding even faster or more intake fans was the only way to bring back positive pressure in the case which I really didn't wanna do. After months of dealing with all the dust being sucked in from ever single crevice around the case, I finally had enough and took it out.

 

Considering the amount of hot air I felt behind the case, even near the 120mm fan mount, I decided it was time to help exhaust that air out with a new AP-13 Gentle Typhoon to help exhaust out that warm CPU air while keeping the noise level down and keeping positive pressure within the case which was now possible without the 200m being a huge vacuum. The twin AP-14's are now able to be filtered once again to keep the dust and cat hair out because I am no longer needed maximum airflow from the front intakes since the 200mm bad boy is gone.

 

 

Oh, and I picked up a CE of Skyrim on sale, so I decided to have some camera lighting fun also.

Well after a long, tiring and dissapointed first hand experience with my new Silverstone TJ08-E, im very happily back with my Antec mini P-180 rebuilt and a bit more refined since I had it all apart.  I won't bother reposting my thoughts on the TJ08-E but heres link on my personal findings.

That being said, I did a few touch ups to "Night Fire" while it was apart. Following an earlier suggestion from someone here, I decided to take a black marker to all the wiring that was "non black" and cover it up to help go with the Red/Black/silver color theme within the interior of the case. I also added more silicon grommets to the Cavier Black to further reduce HDD vibration into the case. I also decided to remove the Antec Big boy 200mm after getting sick of dealing with the dust mess as a result of the negative pressure it was causing. I replaced it with a new Gentle Typhoon AP-13 for the rear exhaust to help pull away warm air away from the Dark Knight HSF.

 

Future plans are to possibly add more sound insulation to the panels, upgrade to a Kepler and maybe even a SSD as there's a perfect spot for one between the vid card and the intake fans.
