Lol, I actually did the same. Somehow though it just never fully clicked for me I guess.

Hi guys,

Some advice please, I have ordered some braided cables for my rig and only just realised that i have ordered an 8 pin eps cabke instead of the 8 pin pci-e doh.gif

I have been looking online if i can doctor the eps to fit the pci-e rather than re-order( i paid for £8 for next day delivery,lol) but all i can find is people asking if then can adapt the 8 pin eps that comes from the power supply which is obviously risky due to the ground and 12v being in a different place. Does anybody know how easy it would be to mod the eps extension cable to become a pci-e considering it is going to be connected to an 8 pin pci-e so no issue's with what pin is what.

Thanks guys smile.gif

The connectors are gonna be the issue but the male one can be modded (a blade works) for an 8 pin pcie line. As long as the extension goes to an 8-pin pcie cable from the psu it should work. The color dont matter tbh.

Ok: 8-pin pcie to modded eps 8pin extension to gpu

No: 8-pin eps to modded eps 8-pin to gpu

yeah that is kinda what i thought tbh, hopefully when it comes i can get a blade on it and make it work. we shall see though wink.gif

I don't think you're following what I'm wanting to do here. I'm saying I wish the top tray was as it is, but that the bottom layout was flipped left to right.

Cant wait to throw it all inside the XB!

I agree! That would reduce over all tube length by quite a lot thumb.gif

the rampage 4 should fit as I fitted a 3 in and they are almost the same dimensions , rampage 3 ATX Form Factor
12 inch x 10.6 inch ( 30.5 cm x 26.9 cm ) rampage 4 Extended ATX Form Factor
12 inch x 10.7 inch ( 30.5 cm x 27.2 cm ) The only problem would be the tray needing to be faced off closest to the front . However connection of the sata cables would have to be done prior to sliding in the
shelf of the main board tray as there is no room to clip in sata cables after it is in place .I must also point out that if you later wish to attach another drive to the sata board connections after assembly
you will have to disassemble the entire tray section to attach it so my advice for what it is worth leave a dormant sata cable connected to the board so as to help with future upgrades to save and limit down -time with your PC . http://lanoc.org/review/motherboards/5791-motherboard-sizing this may also help.

The nzxt closed loop cooler would I imagine be the same as the new intel cooler maybe some else can answer that for you I hope this helps.

Finally received my XB today smile.gif
Had two other computers that I needed to get done, so I haven't had time to do much more than throw some components in it. I'll swap out fans and tidy it up later tonight.

Here it is:

Are those white led fans? Looks nice if they are!













New gpu setup incoming soon. Might as well do a log this time around and show some more love to my HAF XB. I say, when testing components (before finalizing your build) the horizon layout is a blessing. I can see how this can easily be marketed as a test bench.
