Go for the $12 dollar dykes.. They will be around forever.

Enigma. as for the backplates for the EVGA 4xx cards. allot of people are actually reporting a pretty significant drop in V-Reg/ram (not sure wich one atm) temps. like on the order of 5 to 10*c. i cant confirm any of this but i remember seeing it some place on the EVGA boards a few days ago
That doesn't surprise me. I could see that the aluminum of the plate would pull out the heat from the bottom. Smart.

You need to run that 4/8 pin power cable under the board before your Video Card comes in..

Beautiful Build Baldo.. and your photography is brilliant as always. I have learned from your shots.. Thanks..

Hey fellow scouts. It's been a long time since I went MIA and I apologize for the hiatus, and I've miss this place and you guys so much. Life's got a way of taking over when you least expect it. Anyway, I have a really huge favor to ask of you. Due to a mistake on my part, I am left with a motherboard that cannot be returned per newegg's policy. The board is brand new, only taken out of the box. It has not been installed, no component/cable has been plugged into it. If I could sell this at atleast 90% value, I would really appreciate it. I will cover shipping too. I apologize for sounding forceful and/or rude, and thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

This is the motherboard:

P.S. I wish that says OCN Award and not OCC, but yeah

hyujmn, I'm using a scythe big shuriken HSF but i replaced the 120mm fan with a gelid12PL fan. Works good for my needs. Right now my my cpu is a xeon x3110 which is equivalent to intel e8400. It idles at 38c and load is at 52c.

I can't really recommend the HSF since its so freaking hard to install and you can't use RAMS with taller heatsinks. here's the link for the HSF anyway. hope this helps!

For optimal cooling you want cool air drawn in from the front and exhausted out the back and top. Heat rises you know. Plus you can then do a much better job cleaning up those psu wires. Also you can run the 4/8 pin cable behind the MOBO tray as well as the ATX 24 pin cable can be ran out the hole in the MOBO tray and back in at the side of the hard drive cage.
Thanks for the advice, Ill rearrange those wires and flip the PSU tonight.

Now you can get the kinks out of those coolant tubes and route the pump power wire along the coolant tubes for a much cleaner look. Run the fan wire along the top of the MOBO to the CPU fan header. After all it technically is the CPU cooler fan just removed to an other area. Right? Of course it's right.
Thanks for the help, Ill get on that tonight.

i got this



this was a hard fit through the upper gap, front panel cable is zip tied so removing them was not an option, not for now





now i cant close the side panel, i know the back of the case got more space due to the shape
but the front panel cables overlap with the 24 pin, this is where i cant shut the side
and i feel there so much space wasted next to the PSU!
what do u think? am thinking intake like cm690
but what kind of steel is there?

Hows this guys?

I routed the 8 pin PCI-E cables through the back and out the hdd hole, as well as the 24 pin mobo cable. I routed the PC power 8 pin up through the top, I had to loosen the top three mobo screws to get enough wiggle room. I also rerouted the two h50 cables as per you guyses reccomendations. She looks a lot cleaner now. I can wait to sleeve all the cables, and get a false floor+hdd cover in the future. xD

I just need to know where the one molex from the case that is female goes, and where I plug in the HD audio cable and the one attached to it from the case.
