Oh I also added an filterright filter on my push/pull setup

We'll see how it holds up to dust.

I don't know. . .

The problem with Power supplies is that you can't know if they are bad unless you read reviews. . .

They have this thing called Ripple Protection. . . And the thing about Ripple is that you don't feel it or see it, but it's slowly killing your parts. One day you'll turn them on and it will be all burned out. All PSU's ripple just some ripple much much more.

Some PSU's have bad caps, which could lead to over heating or even explosions. I'm not kidding.

Some have bad voltage regulation which will make stable overclocks harder to achieve. . .

Lots of things. Power supplies are important for the safety of everything in your system you owe them a good power supply.

that PSU is horrible i wouldn't trust any modern machine with it.


As for the cables... blah that is no issue... only do cable management if you feel like it, if you had many fans expecting for ventilation then on that side... yes do some good cable management... but as computer as in survival with or without cable management... it will live pretty much the same no matter what

management is for looks and to improve the air flow ventilation

Cable Management is first and formost for airflow. If it looks nice then that's secondary.

My pushing silverstone fan just died on me (. Thinking of getting gentletyphoon. Now I got an extra fan lying there. Anyone have any guide on making a shroud for my gentletyphoon pushing? Will it make much of a difference if I have a pair of this push/pull in comparison to one GT and the stock corsair fan? Oh and if I were to spray paint the blades, will that reduce RPM and CFM seeing how the blades are heavier?
