I had a bit of a PSU problem. HX650 has nice all black black cables + it isn't fully modular => sleeving it will break the amazing 7 year warranty.
My fully modular Silverstone Strider 850W Gold (happy to void its warranty) was designed by lazy basterds who decided it would be cool to put 2 very large capacitors wired onto each end of every 6pin/8pin power cable => sleeving nightmare.
So i decided to stay with the extensions and ordered only black and white MDPC-X sleeving for the rest of my wires. Then i realised... why dont i just re-sleeve the bitfenix extensions. another DUH moment. The sleeving they use sucks, so i have emailed Nils to see if its not too late to add some more things to my order.

Was getting near ambient idle temps with only two EX240s, and average 50 C load temps (45-50 C on 3 cores and ~55 C the other). After adding the RX240 i havent had any noticeable drop in load temps haha
Pretty sure this is just because of low airflow in the case and the fact im using bad corsair case fans on one EX, and the other is badly mounted with double sided tape against fans inside the case.
Haha I never convinced myself that any of this was necessary!
But seriously, with 3 rads i guess i might be able to get some more mhz out of my proc and GPU, might allow me to run my fans slower and quieter but in the end its a bit over overkill and i really just wanted a new project/challenge
Also im adequately prepped for crossfire, forbid i ever convince myself i need another graphics card....
