Thanks Comp....man that's some dedication to read it all on an iPhone. Thanks for taking the time. RE the cable management, thanks for your compliment... I'm pretty sure I'm gonna wait for the new Corsair to come out...meaning I can do an even better job of it next time....watch this space. (hope you get some help from what I did though)

The Corsair would perform better than the Enermax, that's definite. However, the difference would only be marginally, as the Enermax is one heck of a PSU itself. That said, it is up to you whether you want to wait a bit longer for the Corsair, and most possibly spend more money.

Awesome mod you got going on.
Thanks... Still some debate about seasonic though, If I remember rightly Corsair used Seasonic to manufacture their HX520 and HX 620 before switching to Channel Well, which improved the PSU, and now it looks like they will be using Flextronics for the AX1200. Though I cant really comment as I've actually only owned Corsair PSUs (apart from a crap 400W PSU that came with my first...dare I say it....thermaltake case). In saying that...my HTPC has teh HX620...so sort of seasonic and haven't had any issues with it. Be interesting to see what they come up with for their 1200 version.
http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/?tag=PSU_manufacturers

Jonnyguru gives the Enermax a 9.9 rating and the Cosair a 9.8 rating, so not much in them really performance wise...I just think the Corsair will be better to work with, given it is completely modular...making it mush easier to sleeve and change the length of the cables, and the gold rating over the silver of Enermax would be nice too...don't think I'm too concerned with the loss of 50W capacity....thinking 1200 should still be sufficient...

Thanks. I hear ya...I can't even find a store in Australia that has it listed. At least if you're in the States, you could order it from Corsair via Amazon....US$299 incl. shipping is a steal...they wont even ship outside US. From what I've read in the Corsair forums...release is supposed to be around July/August...so not too long I hope...then I just have to wait for it to be released in Australia

Hmmm.

Now I'm wondering if it would be possible to mod something like this:



So that I could stealth it behind my front panels...

Anyone have one or have a rough idea of distance at the front that could be removed???

at a guess i'd say you could remove the front door part so about an inch. it could look pretty sweet if you stealthed it straight onto the trays.
coolermaster already have a harddrive holder for the drivebays. I don't think it would be too hard to make that hot-swappable...
http://www.coolermaster.nl/shop/prod...roducts_id=283

OR

contact coolermaster/other members and see if they'll flog you a hot swap bay from their haf-x.

OR

find a case such as one of the silverstones or the coolermaster acts 840 which have the option for hotswap on their hdd cage and see if you can nab one from somewhere.

this also looks interesting

Thanks blue...I do already have a HDD cage that I'm using, which works really well (it is the CM one, I just removed the front cover from it so it was stealthed). I just thought, what with removing all of the tool-lees drive catches, that something like this would give me true and easy tool-less HDDs, which is the main thing I would probably want to swap in a hurry.

I thought it looked like you could remove the first inch too....I'm starting to want it more

just googled it and about the first link was this

There are alot more pics here
that show from different angles.
Looking at Kustom Pcs catalog you can either get 2 HDD in 2 bays, 3 in 3 or 4 in 3. With the 2in 2 and 3 in 3 you could probs just glue the bay covers onto the trays, maybs with some perspex behind to hide the job and fill the gap.

For the 4HDD in 3 bays you might be able to glue 3 bay covers together and replace the existing door with that. You'd have to trim the hinged side off so it opens and either fit the locking mechanism or see about using the existing mechanism on the bay covers. Just a lil' idea, definately loving that product though and first dibs on your cage if you make the switch.

It's 227mm long if that helps....

It all helps heaps, thanks. My idea would be to remove the face plate they use and just put the HAF ones back in their slots if they fit, although i really like your idea about joining them all together and modding them a little. My concern is I can't see how they are latched into the case, i.e. whether the part that i would have to remove at the front is used to lock them in somehow.

Just read the last couple of lines of the 2nd paragraph again...lol - re the dibs on my cage. If you have a look at the pics on my first page you should be able to see that I have already done away with the cage, and to be honest, really can't envision myself using it again, as I will be mounting a 240 rad and my pumps where is would normally sit...that coupled with the fac that i took out the locating/locking indents for it in the 5.25" drive caddy and plan on bogging the rivet holes that attach the two together.

With all that said...you are welcome to the cage...you would just have to cover postage from Australia to where ever you are...which would probably be about the same as buying a new one from CM, unless you live in Aust or NZ yourself (that's why I had a chuckle about you calling dibs.)

Anyway, its on a shelf in my office gathering dust if you want it.

Heh, sorry lol. My log is packed full of OT stuff. Might take you a while to get through it all haha.

It's pretty average weather here atm too. Temps barely rise above 0 at the moment, regardless of the time of day or whether the sun is out or not. (Perfect overclocking weather haha)
