Positive pressure ? Just test negative pressure and you'll see how cold is your case. (i know the dusty problem, but for temperature, it's so great)

GPU with blower can also help with heat issue

I'm using the NZXT G10 with a Corsair H90 on my GPU so heat is never an issue there. I think the hottest temperature I've recorded was 43 degrees. Still need to draw air in for the VRM and VRAM cooling though so a window still isn't an option. Not that it's the prettiest cooler in the world to be showing off.

Awesome build there. I really need to get some braided cables for my RM650. The stock cables really suck, too long and hard to work with especially in this case.

Thanks!

The braided cables make for a MUCH better cabling experience with the RM750. I still need to get the 24pin. The ones I'm using currently are what I had left over from the AX1200i in my 900D build. What better way to use the extra cables smile.gif

Definitely an awesome build. And much cleaner than mine. I may have to invest in some shorter PSU cables or the tools to make my own.

Your welcome! thumb.gif I wish I could make my own, probably would be much cheaper. I was looking on Corsairs site and they want $80 for the braided kit and then add another $25 for the 24 pin, kind of expensive considering you can get a Silverstone PSU and then get their short cable kit (granted not braided) for way less.

I'd probably go all black on mine since I'd want it to go with the Batman theme. Or can go old school, yellow/black.

I wonder how many hours it takes and what is involved doing them yourself. I bet since these cables on the RM are flatter that it would probably be easier, but I could be very wrong. LOL!

I am new to this Small form factor case build, but was looking for a new PC to replace my 7 years old Intel Core2Duo build. This time I thought I'd go for Small but powerful and based my build on:

- Corsair Obsidian 250D case
- Corsair AX760i PSU
- Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133Mhz 16GB
- Core i7 4770K CPU
- ASUS Maximus Impact VI mobo
- Corsair H100i AIO liquid cooler
- MSI 760 GTX OC 2Gb ITX graphics card
- existing Crucial M4 256Gb SSD
- WD NAS 1Gb HDD

I was glad to find this forum thread, not only giving ideas but also advice so had a read through it all before starting to build.
I am still building, just need to do some cable management now, but must say the build was uneventful until I started to fit in the radiator, it took me several times putting it in and getting it out to make sure I had it the way I wanted. I took notice of the recommendations in this thread (Page 6 for those new to building with this case) so I made sure all cables were in before putting the radiator in, but still, struggling a bit, but could also be because I was being very very careful smile.gif For those wondering about the red washers on the radiator : I used the black ones on the other side because for some weird reason the screws supplied with the H100i are several mm too long, so wanted to make sure I didn't tear into it when applying them on the radiator!

Anyway, here are some images of my build - once finished I will post here again.

Awesome build! Almost identical to the one I have ordered.. Thanks for pointing out that the H100i screws are too long. I will get some nice red washers also to make up the 5-10mm difference!
