A few people have posted issues with their fans lately, bad batch?


By the way, for those who might be looking for a cleaner way to connect the front USB3.0 cable:
Internal-usb3-adapter

Its not for sale till next month, and of course you would need a newer mobo that had a header actually on it. The Lian Li adapter I had considered to use for this purpose is an abomination, at least visually. I am going to wait for this one.

Nice and clean build. What do you use for LED lighting and how did you mount the 120mm fans on the front panel?

That's really coming along. That's a sweet looking mobo. I wonder if you could cut the corner off of a fan, mount it with three screws and bend the wires enough to miss the blades? I think it would be better than no fan. Making a 90 degree connector would help too, but the connector on the board is already pretty tall. Tough problem....If it was my older board I would desolder the connector and solder the wires directly onto the board, but I don't think I'd want to do that with a new board. Too bad the manufacturers don't make those connectors at a right angle from the factory. I've seen a lot of people complain about that same thing.



Are you heavily into a quiet PC? I was wondering because if you change your fan speed on your video cards you would likely get a fairly decent drop in temps. My Radeon cards were slow in responding to temps, and they never seemed to reach 100% until the card was really hot. I am running MSI Afterburner and using the feature that allows you to change the "temp vs fan-speed" ramp so the fan speeds up a little more while the temps are still reasonable. It should help your temps a little at least. My temps are not all the different from yours. (Idle: top 55c at 10%, bottom 48c at 0%, fan speeds 48% and 25%) (Load: top 80c at 96%, bottom 72c at 92%, fan speeds 80% and 70%) using Furmark for the load test. They were about 10c higher before I started using Afterburner and the fans were only reaching about 50 or 60%, so you may get better results than I did.



The XSPC is 58.5mm thick while the H70 is 50mm thick, so you shouldn't have much of a problem. Lots of people mount the H70 at the back and use internal push/pull. Just look at a few H70 builds and imagine another 120mm fan (shroud) added in.



They sure look sleeved don't they? CeaserNYC, I thought you'd rather eat your cables than sleeve them? Are those stock for your psu?



Dude, in many years of building, and TONS of 90 and 180 degree bends, I have never broken a wire, nor created a short. And that was with a lot of cheap no-name power supplies in the "old days" when there was no such thing as cable management and if you wanted to hide your cables you pretty much had to bend them up. I've even done this a lot with the older IDE cables without ever damaging a cable. Other than sharp edges and metal fatigue (from bending the wires back and forth over and over) I fail to see how a sharp bend in a wire is going to affect anything. The electronic products I service at work often have sharp bends in their harnesses with no ill effect at all (not to mention length straining because some manufacturers are way to cheap to add another couple of mm). Really, as long as you don't sit there bending the wires over and over and over, bending them to achieve a tight routing is not going to have any effect at all. It will definitely not cause any problems over time either (unless the wire is repeatedly flexing a lot or sitting on a sharp edge). I mean, cables come already bent at 180 degrees with ties on them, and IDE cables come bent into an accordion shape and sit shelved like that for years. Even cables with many very thin wires inside a sheaf can come bent for packaging. I think about the worst you could say is to be careful not to put too much strain on the connector, because you can pull the bare wire out of the connector if you pull on it enough, however that would take a lot of force to do.

There are very few things that will make a metal wire go bad. Cutting (sharp edge), stretching (must pass the tensile strength of the wire), metal fatigue (from constant flexing), corrosion (even inside a rubber sleeve, a copper wire can eventually get corroded in a humid environment, it's weird but I've seen it happen). Just bending a wire 180 or 90 degrees is not going to cause any damage in any way, even if you put a little stress on it. (my last psu had such short cpu power lines it barley reached. I had to give it a very tight 180 bend to get it to plug in. That supply is still working like a champ in another computer).

Sorry if I rant too, but when I see someone warn about:

"sharp bends eventually turn in to strained/broken wires and shorts, and basically...yeah... Never put extreme bends in any cable"

And I know it's wrong, I just can't let it slide. There's enough misinformation out there as it is.

Sorry if I seem opinionated or anything.

Sorry to hear about your problems with Corsair shipping. You don't have anyone at home who Corsair could ship your replacement to, and they could relay it to you through the USPS? If not, I'm sure someone trustworthy here on overclock.net would help you out in situations like that. I'd be happy to help myself but I'm in Canada. Just have a friend do it for you. Use your name and their address.

Isn't that what family/friends are for?

tl;dr

Please add me to the club! 600T SE, I am waiting for a few more modifications to clean this up and light the interior but please add me to the club. I will post completed photos by end of week. I added LED strips on the top for as well as twin 120mm fans for better airflow. Cheers everyone!

Can this be purchased separately? Blasphemous I know, but Corsair doesn't seem to offer a 3.5 to 5.25 adapter of their own. biggrin.gif
