Too Hot? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ya, I'm looking into doing some cable management. I'm very new to the building a pc world so I'm just learnin day by day have been watching a lot of youtube vids on cable management and going to give it a go. I plan on getting a new case that's a full tower. The only problem I see is that the one plug (sorry idk which) that runs from my psu to the top of my mobo might be too short if I get a full tower. So I have some kinks i need to work out before I do all that. I'm also going to look into getting that fan! Thanks again for all your help I love this website! haha

EDIT: I want those LED fans you have on your cooler could you provide a link? Or is that in your rig link lol

That is the 8 pin CPU plug that powers the CPU itself. They sell extensions for those plugs that are not too expensive. Amazon or Newegg has them. I have a HAF 912 case and it is a mid tower, but with the room of a full tower. It is pretty big for a mid tower, but still not nearly as big as a full tower. You probably will not have to get an extension for that cable with the HAF 912 case. It is great for air cooling because of all the fan set up options and the cable management is phenomenal for a case in its price range (see my rig). Also, it is not that expensive and you can usually find it on sale for $50 somewhere. I love this site as well. I have learned so much from these guys and there are always people willing to help. Cheers.

Haha, funny you say that I actually have a haf 912 case I was just told that full towers are obviously going to be nice because of the more open space and air flow, but if I dont practice my cable management it probably won't matter much. tongue.gif

Haha, then you're set. For the full tower to be worth it you would want to run CrossFire or SLi at least or you will just have a lot of unused expensive space. Since you already have a great air cooling case check out my profile pictures if you want to see how I managed cables in the 912 with a non-modular PSU. I left the SSD cage on the bottom and stashed extra wires in there to keep them out of the way and there is at least one picture of how I ran them on the back side of the MoBo, zip ties are your best friend when managing the cables. I really do love my 912 and over summer I am hoping to do some mods to it. I say stick with that case and invest in some new fans, maybe a fan controller, (this is the one I'm using http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992007) and you will be set to air cool perfectly.
