Scroll down to the third picture on the page and read the text below it as well.
I disagree about the cabling being the only advantage. And as for airflow, you can use convection to help you out or you can be counter productive and fight against it.
Also the thing about the screw, just because it has never happened to you doesn't mean it will never happen. I would rather it have no chance of happening at all. It is a precautionary measure.

Scroll down to the third picture on the page and read the text below it as well.

Although I agree with you about the PSU orientation and with your reasons, I have to point out that convection is a really tiny force compared to fans. It's takes little effort for fans to overcome convection.

I have just set up a RAID0 with two 60GB SATA II SSDs and I get benches close to double speed, and a boot time that went from low 20s to low teens (almost halved). Do you know if you got any significant performance improvement over a single SSD?

I agree, but I'm trying to form an argument here biggrin.gif

@ mistasumo, that boot up is so sick, "welcome back commander" like you in a space ship biggrin.gif

just sayin!

I remember reading somewhere that when you put SSD's in a RAID config, you lose TRIM capabilities.

Thanks for the compliment! It was sitting on a test bench for over a year before i decided to get a case for it. i had not planned on getting a case for it, and leaving it on the bench, but i had decided to start using the bench for my LGA2011 build i was going to work on next year. However, i decided against it, backing out of it after seeing how good it looks at the moment.

I kept the mATX, because i was going to get a small case for it for LAN parties, and i did not want to lug the heavy steel test bench around all the time. the mATX board made the bench look really filled up and professional. the 600T is the first case i have had in 2 years, so i was expecting the mATX to fill it up.

as far as the amount of extra cabling in the back, i originally had the VGA cables hanging in the window space, so it obstructed the view and cast a shadow with the LEDs over the bottom, making it look unworthy. so i decided to show only how much i was actually using. i saw many builds just showing the bare minimum, and tried to replicate that. i am still unsure about whether to use the white. its a combo now, but i have enough cables to either all red or all white vga cables. so i am sure next week it will change again, as most of my wiring goes (changing every week).

338
*what the PC sat one for over a year, while i made alterations to the parts and layouts. when i needed the extra space, i moved it to a case when i felt it was ready to have a permanent seat.
