That sleeving must have taken a bit of time but matches the board very well...nice other cable management (i.e. Sata)...I like how the cooler and PSU draw the eye...PLUS lot's of real estate for future upgrades: extra points for planning... -take it from someone who did not plan that well and who is moving a Max V Ex (eATX) and 3 Asus Direc CUii cards and three hard drives and 2 SSDs plus watercooling which I all STUFFED into a nice but small Antec 302 towards a CoolerMaster Stryker case (that 360 / 60 rad just did not want to fit).

...quick mod tip: if your case does not have an air cooler opening at the back side (across the mobo CPU back cover and VRM), get a hole saw and cut a circle for a (narrow, ie Scythe) 120mm fan - especially when oc'ing and then playing games for a long time...it really does make a measurable difference thumb.gif

Is it or do I see space for a three Radiators... 360, 140 and another 240 at the bottom?

I'm starting work on my AX1200 in the new case - A LOT of power-cables to route to various components...black 'factory' sleeves are ok but I really like the red SWAG uses

I didn't mean to tongue.gif The pre-sleeved cables are very nice tho. Friend has em in a build and if you didn't know any better, you'd think he sleeved them himself. They also have multiple colors. I thought you would have already known about em tongue.gif

they do exist

God, I really want those. I mean, Imagine gaming on one of those, just beautiful. Although, it doesn't seem to practical to me when you want to just browse...

Think today I will be receving my 690 (two 680s incoming in as soon as Aramex gets their act togather and delivers them)

Faster Aramex Ship Faster... I NEED MY CARDS YESTERDAY ARRRRGH!

Two problems I am seeing... the 690 is 2gbX2 and each 680 is a 4GB version so I might try going for titan if the performance/price@7680x1440 is justified.

Nvidia pulling something like 3xTitan ($2700) is better then 2x690 ($2000) and not stating any numbers is just.... stupid.

If I see that the Titan is a flop I would sell the 690 and find a used 680 4GB from the influx of kepler owners who would jump ship and use the funds from the 690 to water block all 680s and just have fun with tri-sli until the new generation of cards come along.

./praying that twin forzr 680 4GB is a semireference card for waterblock integration.

YOU SPEND TOO MUCH ON THOSE GPUS! 690 + 2x 680? That's like $2000 on just GPUs!

Thanks! tongue.gif I didn't actually completely plan this thing out, I bought the parts I really wanted which were the CPU and motherboard. And then the case went on sale for $60 and the D14 was only $50 so I bought those. After that, I started bringing all the parts from my old PC like the PSU and put it in the new one. I just bought the 680 since the last time I got a new GPU was back in 2009. This will last me another good 4 years. tongue.gif

I will show you what I plan to buy in the Summer for my water cooling adventure. tongue.gif Give me a second to open up my wishlist. tongue.gif
