Do it, no reason to bottlneck an i7 with one 275 lolz.

Beautiful looking, can't wait to see some build pics.

Looks brilliant. Subbed to the thread so I can see the assembly on Friday. Get some pics!

Again, it's for futureproofing. Who knows, I may even get three 275s down the road and that's when I'll really need the PSU.
Nice PSU btw.

You know what, you're probably right. I looked up some benchmarks and they easily beat a 295 in just about everything, so it'll be a considerable boost from a single 275. Thanks for the heads up.

Will definitely post pics once I have everything up. Guess I might as well try and boot it up without using the case. And to think I was trying to get all of my studying done by Friday so that I can just game on my new rig for the whole weekend.

Small update: Screwed in the Blu-ray drive and hard drives into their respective bays.




Sorry for the blurriness. I tend to shake the camera a little right as I take the picture for some reason...

Plan for tomorrow: Get all of my work done so that I can enjoy my new rig for the whole three day weekend.

If you want some good advice on cable management with the 1200. Watch some of TJHarlows vids on youtube. Just in case you didn't know already. Keep it up.

Yeah, I watched it. Unfortunately, the zip tie mounts I ordered don't fit the zip ties I have. However, there are the hooks on the back where you can tie up all the cables with zip ties. Would that be enough?

Unfortunately, I'm not much of a handyman so I'll do without any modding.

Seems like there's enough holes to have a clean look without any extra drilling.
