Alright guys the pictures are being uploaded as we speak. Check the original post for an updated post with some of the pictures included. There are 56 in total (a bit excessive, I know) so if you want to see them all head on over to the album I'll link both here and in the original post. Keep in mind I'm new to this so the cable management is pretty bad, haha. I'll put a couple pictures in this thread, but like I said all of them are going to be in the album so just go check that out. Some are good quality, and some are a bit worse in quality. This is because I had to resort to my phone camera when my actual camera died.

I hope you all enjoy! And don't critique my cable management too bad... thumb.gif

Its looking good :3
I'm quite jealous cause I'll have to wait till next year to actually build mine haha.

Hope it's amazing! cause its definitely a decent setup. BUT if your planning on overclocking and going dual GPUs 650W might be stretching it haha.

Nonetheless thanks for sharing. IF YOUR OVERCLOCKING post results please biggrin.gif:D

Sure will! For some reason I planned on overclocking but my stock temps, even with a Hyper212 EVO, seem a bit high... I'm concerned.

This build is pretty mint, not going to lie, the more and more I see this case, the closer I come to just buying it ahahaha

Hey, hope you fixed up your cable managment (esp your 24 pin connector), a lot of people overlook how important it really is, esp in a air cooled system.

The 4+4(8 pin) and the 24pin connectors are still where they were in those pictures. I honestly have no idea where else to put them. There's nowhere to route the 24-pin out, and come back in closer. Also, the 4+4(8) pin, is super short. That's the only way it can go without laying directly on the video card, I had to lay it over the RAM... it's just simply the only place it fits and reaches.

Been a few days, so bump! smile.gif

Anybody else know what I could do about the 8 and 24-pinners?
