post #31 of 44
Damn, that is tight! Is there anyway for the Predator to fit on the front?

Doubt it - maybe with a half length card, but a full-length? No way. You have about 30mm to 40mm between the front mount and the back of a reference GPU.

I'm going to also purchase myself the same motherboard and a Caselabs Bullet BH2, so this thread has definitely come in handy. I guess I'm not going to have much luck finding the narrow ILM bracket for my Kraken X31 though, so I'm not sure what I will do for cooling. The cooler that comes with the motherboard certainly won't suffice for an overclocked i7-6800K.
I also won't have any luck installing my two 3.5" HDDs either, with a CoolerMaster V650 PSU in the way. New hard drives it is.

Should be able to fit the HDD's in there no problem since they are offset from the PSU - save for the fact that your PSU will not fit in the case in the first place. You have to use an SFX PSU.

Speaking of, don't use Silverstone. The one I am using is garbage. Utter garbage. Fan is making more racket than a train, and Silverstone isn't exactly trying very hard to do the warranty thing as they don't see a need for cross shipping - after all, who needs a PSU to run a computer during the weeks it will take to get a new one?

So probably going to chalk that up as a case of learning not to trust a brand, and go back to Corsair. So, going to rip it apart here shortly to redo all the wiring. Good news is: this time I have an idea of what will work or not, and make the wiring as neat as can be.

I soon realised that I needed an SFX PSU. That also means I'm after one, just can't decide over an SF600 or something from Silverstone.

Are you talking about seasonic or silverstone?

Either way, indeed, never trust a brand as far as PSU's go, Corsair has sold its fair share of garbage PSU's too.

The SF600 is just about as good as it gets as far as SFX PSU's go. Silverstone's current units aren't really as good, especially in terms of noise, although there should be quieter revised units coming soon.

Yeah, derp on a late night for me.

Decided to buy a BH7 instead, saves me having to spend more replacing my X99A Gaming Pro Carbon for the ASRock ITX board, and having to replace my CM V650 PSU for an SFX PSU. Much cheaper in other words.

Well, got a new PSU in - a Corsair SF600. Nice little thing: should be plenty of power, and so far quiet as a mouse.

The original PSU on the hand I found what the problem was once I tore it out of my system: the fan droops pretty baddly, and hits the grill (Which was what I was expecting to be fair) making that godaweful racket. It is still a good PSU I think: as soon as the fan points out, which really isn't an option in the BH2.
