Really not sure what to do :/

P.S. i would go for the all black Edition (sorry it's german :/ )

Anyone using such a HDD Mount?

It would a bit but definitively not much. Might clean up the look of the case and also make use of the 5,25" bays better. Really doubt that you'll see a substantial difference in temperatures though.

Thanks for compliment! I could not get radiator to line up because of the thermal armor. So it is off centered for the fans to fit in the bottom. So, originally I just had it in push with fans inside blowing out. Then I put some fans on top with zip ties to hold them in place. But honestly I did not notice much a difference in temps (1-2c) and the noise was bit loud. To please my wife it is just back in push with the fans inside. I don't have the tools to do any serious modding and my temps are just fine.

My main problem is my gpu temps. I really need to order one of those nice custom clear panels with fan holes cut out because I refuse to use the mesh side. I didn't build this nice machine to hide it!

One question though is why the 1200i psu? These days things are drawing less and less power. My system in my spec below while gaming and watching my 860i it is using around 600-650w if not less. Only time I ever seen it really go high was when I running 3dmark and prime95 at the same time just to see.

Yeah I know what you mean. I guess I'd like the AX1200i for the "peace of mind" of having more power than needed so I know the PSU will never work at it's max.

So, you think the AX1200i being a litte bit larger than my current AX850 (AX850 is 160mm and the AX1200 is 200mm) will still fit in the case with the GTX 780 on SLI and 3 hard drives? Any benefits you could think of having a smaller PSU (like the AX860i) instead of the AX1200i in terms of space and ventilation? Thank you!

No benefits in those terms, but you'd be saving a lot of money... the 1200i is ridiculously overkill.

I'm with Gyrael here, really you won't notice any improvements by using that large of a power supply it just costs more and takes up more space.

Performance wise there won't really be any perks or cons to either one just size as well as price.

Yes the ax1200 will fit fine in your case but the only reason I can see to go for the ax1200 is if you are planning on doing quad sli and setting up a monstrous watercooling system. Overkill and a waste of money imo. I'd take that extra money and buy something you are lacking (ssd? larger hdd? h100i for your cpu?) Also by keeping the smaller psu you will have the extra space (length) you could do the mod that a member did by cutting a hole in the bottom to place a fan to blow more cool air on the gpu's.

I am not sure about this but having that large of a psu, will it block him from moving the hard drive cage down by it?

I have a 1200i and it fits fine. I didn't get it, I won it, it is a great psu. Overkill , yes but as I said I won it so the price was perfect.
