Asus m5a99fx pro 2.0. I might give him a shout then so I don't fill up your build thread.

Yea I don't think he would mind if you asked him that. Also, I don't mind people asking questions on my build log. If someone is getting helped that is perfectly fine. Feel free to post anything. I have all the important stuff on the first post of the thread. Just no fighting!! Peace, love, and tie dye!!

Also, start with the largest and thickest cable like the MOBO + CPU Cable. Feel free to zip tie every cable down where you want it, but be prepared to have to cutoff some zip ties as you go along since it will be your first real attempt at cable management. Soon you will be like me and just know where everything should go at the start so I don't have to waste any zip ties. Good luck!!

Thanks for the reply actually I was being a little sarcastic biggrin.gif so I will give you a REP for a sincere answer.
I have to admit I got a spaghetti junction but I can still get the back panel on so out of sight out of mind.

I just have to say one thing about this PSU it is awesome BUT the rails could be a lot better thought out.
6x 30A rails I would have liked to see 40A rails for the PCI power cables
this is my dilemma my GPUS require a minimum 42A rail per GPU so that means I am running 2 rails per GPU
I am good for 3way but never got around to it. long story but my 580s blew up so a RTM after inspection appears that they are going to replace them with 680s biggrin.gif

Have you read any 4way CF/SLI reviews they do have a common problem the minimum frame rate can actually be worse than a 2 or 3 way CF/SLI in games But in bench marks will mop the floor with any 2 way CF/SLI combo.
Just a thought as I was considering a 660ti 4way SLI but after a few reviews I decided I am better off with 2 good cards even though I might not hit the same maximum frame rate as a 4 way it will be a much better gaming experience, no stutter caused by the drivers/scaling.

Yea the only reason I would go 4-way is for "folding" and benching, but when I game I would just turn off the fourth card. I really don't see a reason to get a 4th unless I come across a good amount of money, but besides that I find it pretty useless. I'm definetly going three-way though. I believe MyBadOmen has the same PSU as us and uses it for quadfire, but really, who knows what AMD is going to do with the drivers I know we all seen a ton of improvement in smoothness with the recent 13.5 betas I noticed a world of difference in crossfire and I am intensely happy that they did it. I got really sick of hearing people complain about it. Things don't happen over night and I knew AMD would take care of us and they are going to continue making it better.

I would agree with not going 4 way gpu. Unless you are doing something “extra” with them, there is no game or benchmark out there that has reasonable scaling for 4 way. Just look at some of the benchmark threads, two way works very well, three way works ok sometimes, four way is just not good at all.

So I gave my Enermax cables to Chino today so he can start sleeving them and buy my Seasonic once he is finished. Sadly that money has to go to a speeding ticket that I got for going through a yellow light.... The cables are going to be black, white, and red. All of the wonderful colors of this build. Now if I can only trade someone all of this crap for a damn radiator!!!

I noticed you have that dual LED listed in the trade page. How was it? Did you get a chance to try it out?

Yea they are extremely bright, but I just really have no use for them. I bought 3mm LED's by accident so I'm just using the Alphacool stop plug.

So I'm going to have an Alphacool UT60 next week!! I set up a trade with an amazingly nice person on this forum for my Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600. Thank god. Now I have one less thing to worry about buying.
