Clearance between one of the fans & the metal bar behind the front I/O panel.








Definitely need two 45 degrees rotary fittings down there.

Love it thumb.gif really well made transition from blue to red.

two questions:
1) since you are using the GTS 360 rad i was wondering which SP fans are you using (i.e. the HP 2350 rpm or the QE 1450 rpm and if you use the reducers or not) and how loud are they on the rad?
2) which color of coolant (or dye) are you planning to use?

I love the Red LED aroung the sound card.

Yup, ASUS knows their game with MoBos and the aesthetics. (and you too know quite a bit too thumb.gif )
i love my LED lighting on the board and it actually creates a neat effect of motherboard underglow on the left side of the board. (now only needs an additional short LED strip to put under the board on the right side to make it complete)

you make Corsair's PSU cabling scheme look much better. (very nice and stealthy and most users don't utilize it properly IMO)

i also plan to get the Corsair Platinum RAM someday but only if they would come down in price a bit (which isn't their specific fault but more the RAM industry and the market state) and when they finally release the Red lighting expansion module for it. (and make it proper looking and not as leaky as the current white and blue)

Alright, everyone...it's not near as fancy as many of your rigs, but I'm pretty happy with it. Bonus points if you can figure out where I hid the hard drive biggrin.gif





Thanks to Sebar for the custom window:





System specs:
  • GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with Dual Thunderbolt
  • Intel I7-3770K
  • 16 GB of Olive Green Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 biggrin.gif
  • Corsair H100i CPU Cooler (stock fans moved to the front of the case and replaced with Cougar 120 PWM's
  • Corsair AX850 PSU
  • HDD -- Mushkin mSATA 480 GB (Drag to highlight if you're curious and don't see it in the pic)

Per my earlier posts, I was kinda frustrated that doing a push-pull with the H100i wasn't as straight-forward as I'd hoped, but truth be told I probably won't be taxing the system to a point where it will matter. It's primary function will be as a home recording studio setup using a Presonus Firetube and running Studio One. Tertiary duty will also be as an HTPC for the house so I can dump FIOS' set-top boxes.

Thanks for the inspiration and the assistance! I think this is a great community and I look forward to enjoying it more.

Looks good. I'm considering getting a Gigabyte Z77 series board. Don't think I'll be using an mSATA that large though. I'm curious about the performance though, you're obviously using it as a boot drive. Is it intended for that, or more as extra cache? They don't seem to say much on the website or in the manuals.

Anyone else experiencing this at all?

Power light stays on blinking when i put the pc to sleep, (normal sleep not hybrid sleep or hibernate).

Kinda annoying as i usually just put it sleep when i got to sleep most of the time rather than a full shutdown. frown.gif
post #3137 of 8442
Shouldn't it blink? Most computers i've owned have the power button beep when its sleeping so you know its sleeping...

Looking good Pulse! That's one more for the military green side biggrin.gif

Thanks, guys. biggrin.gif.

The mSATA is the biggest currently made and specs-wise is quicker than the conventional SSD's I checked out. As for intended use, everything I've seen suggests that it will operate equally as a boot drive or a cache. I'll know when I try installing the OS tomorrow or later this week.

For now, a pregnant wife wants her on-demand-movie-and-cake-date night. Gotta go!
post #3139 of 8442
Good question slaughterhouse, old case didn't do it. haha

Not much of a prob to drape my steelseries headphones bag over the power light when im asleep i guess.
post #3140 of 8442
I'll put it on sleep now just to make sure. I usually don't so im assuming that it did because I believe it did. lol awkward sentence

Edit: Yea. It does beep. I kinda like it, too bad I never put it to sleep. If it bothers you, I guess you could unplug the LED or just cover it up at night
