Can someone give me some advice on how I can route the bundle of cables coming out of my PSU so that it doesn't look so messy?



Thanks!

I have that PSU. #1: the cpu power cable is long enough to go behind the mobo tray. #2: unless you're willing to cut a hole in the mobo tray, there's not much you can do about the 24 pin cable. If you are willing to cut it, this is what I did:

'Ello gents. Just popping in with a PSA..call it: Radiators 101.

1. Use a ratcheting screwdriver (set to loosen, not tighten) when mounting fans to the radiator. (it'll start ratcheting under the slightest tension preventing you from puncturing the tubes...don't use much force while tightening)

2. Do not install a new radiator without a proper flush. You'd be surprised at the amount of muck (flux) and other sand-like bits that come out. Prime example: my 10% white vinegar with boiling hot distilled water blend in a brand spanking new XSPC RX360 radiator. I filled it, capped it off and gave it a good shake and let it rest for a couple minutes, then just flushed with hot tap water until clear:



That blue is caused by the vinegar/copper reaction...note the crap at the bottom of the container, and yes that container was squeaky clean. (word of advice: wear insulated gloves while handling radiator filled with boiling hot water...lol)

That's it for now.

EDIT: forgot to add, be very careful when microwaving distilled water...it can go superheated very easily due to lack of contaminants and 'blow up' once you add the vineagar.

Wait till you get everything and then start modding.. don't pre Mod.

Remember Necessity is the mother of all Modding.

My Vcore is currently at 1.415. I've tried as high as 1.4 and it won't boot at 47x multi. I think I've hit my limit at 46x unfortunately.

well ordered a mouse pad today for the first time ever, and instead of using my hyper 212+ i ordered this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-020-_-Product

looks cool and reviews put it in the top 10 air coolers, and about 3-4C better then a 212+
