DAMN

Sorry I already asked this question but I just cant find it. Been searching around for like 30mins.

How do I route the CPU power cable. I want to get it from the back like you done it. But how?

Enigma suggested running it under the motherboard. I do it differently though. Mine's long enough that I run it through one of those cable management holes on the bottom then up through the cpu retention bracket hole then install the motherboard after.

^this. and since you have the the corsair tx650, your cable should be plenty long enough. Ive got the tx750, and i dont think theres much difference between the physical dimensions

EDIT: here's the backside of mine. the far right cord is the CPU powe cord. plenty long, but you'll have to remove the mobo to do it. or you can try to just remove the screws on the upper part of the mobo, and bend the board up just enough to squeeze in the cord. if you go this way, be careful!

That is so you don't have to run the wire across the top of your motherboard. Also know tha those protrusions on the end of the motherboard base panel are tie downs so you can wire tie your wires securely to the frame.
thanks for the warm welcome what do you mean by the mobo plug? do you mean the power plug for the mobo from the PSU? oh btw im using a HEC cougar 700 watts modular... the wires are really thick, and its kinda hard to clean hehehe... ill post some pictures of the current state of my computer once i have the time, i am kinda busy with school, i might post some pics next week! thanks for the help btw

He's talking about the posts right above this one. The 8 pin or 4 pin.

That's right. Here is a picture of the P4. or CPU Connector



This wire is For the CPU Power And used to be refferred to as the P4 connector because it first was used to supply power to the intel P4 Processor. It only had 4 pins at the time and allowed for more stable DC voltage to the CPU. As overclocking became all the rage the AMD people also started using this connector and it was then renamed the CPU Connector and is not the same as a PCIe connection. This wire now is an Eight pin connector but most Motherboards only require four of them to be connected. That is the reason that four connectors are covered in the picture. They are not require but they are recommended if your going to overclock and use the PCIe 16 Slot.

This Wire Connects Here.



See that this connector is located in a really bad place on the board. We run this cable behind the board so this cable doesn't look Ugly routing over your nice clean board.

Another way of running the wire is hide it along the window side of the box part of the case and use plastic glue type wire tie downs to hide it.. That is a good way to hide the cable if you have already mounted the board and do not want the pull it off again.

Here is a picture of the tie downs.

I just updated my scout build with some wire management. I haven't gone to extremes but I added a bridge and cut off a lot of connectors. It works

I can put the panel on... finally! This rig is mobile now. Too bad it weighs like 70 lbs.

Check out my worklog (link in my sig) to see some overclocking settings I have been using too.

Surfur: About your heatsink... you can safely bend the heatpipes a little to make it work. They also bend back pretty easily... take it off the mobo first though

I don't think mine touches the motherboard.
