Right, so I got my custom mount yesterday! Before I started installing it, I took apart my whole system and did a big cleaning operation to it. I could have cleaned it more if I wanted to, but I wanted to get my system back and running as soon as possible. I took one whole day of cleaning the system and then another whole day (today) installing everything again and redoing my whole cable management.
So, here is a "before" picture:
My Xigmatek, all cleaned and ready for the custom mount:

And the "after" picture!:
All up and running:
And finally, my IDLE temperatures. The fan is pushing air towards the heatsink. Ambient temperature currently, 18-19Â°C
My core temperatures fluctuate between 18Â°C and 19Â°C. I have not tested LOAD temperatures yet, but before I got the new mount, they never went above 30Â°C!
So there you, that is my system setup how it should be! Now I also have access to ALL four RAM slots!
I am happy with my cable management, though one thing that still bothers me is the power cable for my sound card. However, it does not disrupt airflow at all and it only bothers me for aeshetic reasons only.Edited by Floy - 4/4/10 at 5:51am
