how you guys make your build look so neat
i have so many usb 2.0 and one 3.0 usb and then i have my speakers and around 6-8 wires protruding from my psu
hmm

ill post a pic of my build soon, it looks a bit of a mess inside
i tried my best on the back though, spent like a hafe hour tidying up the wiring

being first build i didnt want to bend the wires so much so i took a easier route with the wiring on the inside
still so many wires, so much clutter rolleyes.gif

Use the zip tie anchors on the case, and use lots of zip ties to bundle wires together. You have to plan it all out in your head and see what goes where first so you can bundle like wires together. Also dont be afraid to bend the wires as long as you arent putting too much pressure on the mobo connectors.

Grrrrr I though I was going to finish my build today, until I found out I am short of 1 noctua 140mm NF-A14FLX. I thought I ordered 8 but I somehow have 7...
I love those noctua fans, you can run them at full speed and still be quiet. Looks like I wont be needing my Lamptron FC5V2 and FC6 at all..

Here is the progress pics:

that sucks, if its only 6 months old it should still be under warranty.

Not shure about the TX series, the AX series has 5 years warranty.


Edit:

Looks like the TX also have 5 years.

its still under warranty i put a ticket for rma.

no not really just a lot of smoke the cords were on fire more than the psu itself only for a second and i blew em out and my house was filled with smoke that smelled like burnt tires.

it was on i just turned it on and poof i think there was some kind of short and the other day my mobo shut off and said that it protected itself from a short i checked everything out all appeared fine so thought it was just a temp surge or something and all seemed fine little did i know.

Truthfully im just happy it didn't take my saber tooth or gtx670ftw with it or anything else for that matter lol that psu is probably the cheapest major component i have so glad it was only it that died. most the cords are a little discolored the one going to my leds on the bottom of the case is completely bare wire now little bits of melted rubber all around them.

TBH i was more worried about the smoke at that point then my pc i blew the flames and grabbed my 9 month old baby girl and ran out the room cant be good for her lungs

or
Dual Corsair 120mm sp120 - http://www.corsair.com/us/cpu-cooling-kits/air-series-fans/air-series-sp120-high-performance-edition-high-static-pressure-120mm-fan.html

The noctua only max out at about 1200rpm while the corsair max out above 2000rpm. I don't know whether fan size is relevant or not.
I will definitely use a fan controller to crank up the voltage while gaming.


Granzon-

I have been looking for a way to filter the air coming into my bottom front intake fan on my Switch 810 and noticed that the filter on your fan looks like the one from Silverstone. I ordered one and installed it yesterday, but the filter mesh is fairly loose and rubs on the fan hub. Is the filter mesh on your filter tight? Do you get any rubbing on the fan hub or blades?
