The thing I love the most about this community, is that most tend to do just that, give useful hints over harsh insults.

In all honesty, step one would be to work up and get a fully modular power supply unit, like the AX750.

That way you can limit yourself to just the cables you do need, and even then you can experiment with making your own custom cables to exact lengths. Ontic is doing just that in his build, and in fact he has a pretty killer tutorial for beginners just like me smile.gif

It's not wrong to have it that way really.
But the better choice would be to do the fans facing down. smile.gif

There is no wrong or right way for the PSU. Competing for air, really the air flow in your case isn't that strong, if anything it will help dissipate heat building up in the area of the case with the least amount of air flow, under the GPU. Screw shorting out the psu, really, I have never had a screw fall out on my case. Have I dropped one inside, yes, but I turn my PC off if I'm doing anything inside the case. About the only real advantage of having the fan down is it gives you a couple more inches of cord on a bottom mounted case and the opposite for a top mounted case.

Thanks for that. I was lucky enough to find a site on the 'net that had a copy of the missing gadget. I have it backed up one one of my NASs and an external drive. I won't be losing it again.

I hear you. I was using it on my HD4870s and when I changed to HD6000 series it stopped working. Sucks....

Just for a bit of fun. Worth it?

Thanks a bunch. Bookmarked that page. As for the card, go for it. Do a good job and it will look great.

Oh, and the fans are on top for now

That's not so bad. Considering you don't have a modular psu I think you did not a bad job. Well done. I have made a few discoveries over the last week or so. It's likely others have already incorporated the changes I made to my cable management, but I've never been a particularly neat guy (not for lack of trying). I've redone the cables on my rig three or four times and I think this last one is the best. I started with the fan cables and tried to rout them in such as was as to make them semi permanent since I'm not planning on changing them any time soon (unless Corsair surprises us and produces the Link Commander). I removed all the controller fan cables since I wasn't using the stock controller. I routed all the front panel connectors down the middle with some of the fan cables.

On the PSU I installed the main power cables (2 x video card, 1 x CPU, 1 x mobo) and made loops (as others have done) on the rear area of the case. I used thick cable ties to tie these down tightly. Since I'll have this mobo for quite a while I should never have to remove those cables. I ran two drive cables up the middle with the fan/front panel connectors. One molex and one SATA for the optical drive (this cable is so long that I can even use one connector from it for one of my SSDs) and a second SATA power connector with just two connectors on it for my 2nd SSD and hard drive. The cables that rout down the middle are secured with thick cable ties (I got 100 large black cable ties for under $5.00 and 100 smaller ones for under $3.00 so I'm not ascared to use 'em). I took a piece of foam and used it to block the square hole at the bottom so I didn't have to do any tight turns to avoid it. Lastly were the SATA data cables. I mostly routed them direct since they seem to get changed around most often. It's not as nice as some other routing jobs I've seen but it's the best one I've done so far. On the front side I like to use the closest hole to the port and never skip over a hole to go to the next one. Having black cables helps a lot, and sleeving can can help too. You can always use dye or ink to make a coloured cable black where it's exposed on the board side of the case.

@mannyfc

That looks great. A keeper for sure.

I agree it's best to mount the PSU with the fan facing down as the case was designed. Not only does it prevent your psu from using air from inside the case (helping keep the PSU cooler with fresh air) but it allows the cables to be closer to the inside, making extra length for those tight reaches behind the mobo plate and giving a generally tidier appearance. I have to agree about the screw thing too. Even if it doesn't short out the PSU, you'd have to take it apart to get the screw out. Better avoided.
