You spent all that money and couldn't buy another 16GB of RAM? Haha jk man. Sexy looking build you got there but it seems like 1200 is overkill for just that. If you plan on going 3-sli then I guess it's still ok, but I think 850 would cut it.

WOW! Please tell me you have a build log, I have been thinking of doing this very same thing but was unsure of how it would look.
+Rep on that!

I already have another 16GB on its way as I run alot of Virtual Machines, and I plan to run another ASUS GeForce GTX 690 4GB when the price comes down so that would be a Quad GPU setup.

Then, 1200 wouldn't be too much and 32GB! smile.gif Good job. After that, when prices go down, go for 64GB. smile.gif Can never have too much RAM!

Thanks, I would have posted pics sooner but I had a faulty CPU which took awhile to RA.

I went for Red LEDs because they are easier on your eyes at night time. I have changed all the LEDs on the Case now to 5mm Red LEDs Waterclear 12000mcd.
I'm sure I will find something else to mod on the system in the future, but for now I like it as clean as possible. Very happy with the outcome. thumb.gif

Megatroid, why do you say not to use the mobo fan controller? Ive found asus's fan expert to be very good. And why adjust fans manually when your mobo does it for you according to temp? All of which is full customisable allowing you to choose temps for fan power % at different stages.

I use an after market fan controller. This allows me to keep an eye on the RPMs at a glance and adjust a fan with a quick tweak.

I do use my motherboard for my H100 fans (I use PWM fans for my H100). However, you were asking about keeping your cables from going across your motherboard, and I told how we do it (by using the case fan controller or an after market controller). If you don't mind the cables going across your mobo, then the mobo control is fine.

Also remember, not all mobos are the same,. Some will control 3-pin fans and some won't, some will control PWM fans, and some won't. Some will only run case fans at 100% all the time.

If you want a consistent usage model even though you are replacing motherboards fairly often, the solution is to let the case/after market fan controller control the fans. This also allows you to rout the fan cables on a more permanent basis and not have to rerout them when you replace the mobo. Of course, this all depends on your own usage and your own opinion/desire for what you want regarding your fans. From my experience, most people who purchase aftermarket fan controllers use manual control. There are a few available that also have auto control in them, but most of them are manual.

Either type of usage model works fine. It all depends on how you want to do it. This is why they put a fan controller in the case (and a lot of other cases). Personally, I prefer the controller I have and I like some others, so I don't use the case fan controller.

If you don't mind the cables going across your board and you prefer the control from your board, then it's fine the way you're doing it now.



It doesn't hurt if the controller looks really cool too...
