Looks great! Fairly similar to my Caselabs build that I'll be doing a build log on soon (even thought it's already almost done, I've been documenting it). I have a white S5 (no pedestal) with Maximus VI Gene, 4770k (also can only get about 4.4 and remain stable), GTX 780, white BP fittings and acrylic tubing, Samsung 840 Pro and 2TB Seagate HDD, etc. Lots of differences as well, but lots of similarities.

I'm using a 240 thin ST30 in front (push pull with Noiseblocker eLoops) and a 280 ST30 in the roof (also push pull with Phanteks PH-F140SP'S) and I'm getting about the same exact temps I got when I was running this setup in a full tower with thick 420 and 280 rads. My temps are pretty close to yours. I can only get my 4770k to around 4.4 and have it remain stable. Never gone above 69 C even under full stress but it's somehow limited by stability, not temps. I love this case and the temps I get in it even with smaller thin rads. Can't wait to see more of yours!

Thanks ADragg!

Awesome you have a similar config! Someone I can swap notes with thumb.gif

Looking forward to your build log. Link it in here when you put it up!

Just wanted to put up a small update and let you all know I'm still working on the build. Right now I'm just doing some sleeving in my spare time. I'm almost done with most of the PSU wires, that 24 pin is a b****!

I also wanted to add this photo.



I've decided to go SLI since I plan on buying the ROG Switft monitor when it comes out. I'm hoping 2 780's will be able to handle it! The only problem I had was finding the same water block that I have on my current 780. It looks like EK stopped production an that particular water block and it was sold out everywhere in the US. I ended up finding one at Specialtech in UK. I'm glad I found it because my OCD would not let me get 2 different water blocks.

I also decided to scrap the mechanical hard drive and add 2 more 512GB SSD's. This should be more than enough storage for me. Everything else can be put on my NAS.
I know what you mean about the 24 pin being a pain. On my Corsair ax 860, when I did the 24 pin at the end of it I started to second guess my self. I even made a chart mapping out the pin locations. I guess trying to finish late at night didn't help any neither. I ended up jumping off the psu and testing each pin, making sure I had the right volts.

I did that with my 6 and 8 pins for my video card. I think I must have tested it at least 4 times before I powered on the system. I wonder how many times I'm going to check the 24 pin. As much of a pain it is, I actually enjoy it as well since you can see the results of your work. wink.gif

The only thing that I wish I would have done while testing the wire was make a chart so I could post it in OCN. There are a few charts that I found that were helpful, but all of them said they were not right for Corsair. Would have been nice to have found that when I was doing mine. My 24 pin was modular, so there were no colors to go off of.

Hmm... I was going off of a chart that I found here too. What model do you have? I was using the chart found here http://www.overclock.net/t/1354660/ax1200i-24-pin-question

Update.

So I most of my stuff came in yesterday in order to SLI my system except the water block sadsmiley.gif



So I decided to finish my 24 pin sleeving. Not too bad for my first time doing any kind of custom sleeve work.



Hopefully I will get the rest of my stuff this before the weekend thumb.gif
