Not sure WTH I need another computer, but guess that isn't a very good reason not to build another one. Am trying to get a parts list together and get started, thinking about building around a ASUS Gryphon z87 mobo with the armor kit, and make selections that match that style and color layout.

Finally got this one done, it was one that had to be done under the radar so to speak.

Most of what I did on this build was on the cheap, I don't need another super machine but just liked this case so much I had to build something with it. I chose most of the stuff by cost and what looked good.

Mobo; Asus z87 Gryphon with armor kit
CPU; Intel i5-4670K
Mem; G Skull Sniper 4x4 16mg
SSD; Samsung 840 Evo 240mg
HDD; WD 1.5 TBx2
CPU cooler; Corsair H80i
Video; Gigabyte 7870 x 2 (these seemed to have the best stock cooling)
PSU; Corsair TX950

I added 2 Fractal fans a 120 and 140 to go with the ones that came with the case. The 120s mounted in front case bay and the 140s up top, with 1 120 on the floor. Used the fractal fans to save money and they look ok in this set up.

A few pics: Last pic show how great the difference is to my CM ATCS840 case build, sorta like a Mini-Me!

Nice build. I see it is quite cluttered. Remove the top HDD cage and see about pulling cables behind mobo.
You might not use all the cables, maybe a modular or semi-modular 650w PSU. Which is all you need on your system, as you wont see more than 380w max. A PSU with thin cables will help the clutter.

Thanks for your comments, but in person it looks a lot more organized, I wanted to pack as much stuff as I could into the case to see if it would cool ok, and do as well as a much much larger case.

Not sure the power supply you suggested would be any smaller in size?

Anyway I've got this set up looking about as good as I'm going to get it as far as I see.

Done!
After several hours I finished the installation.

Components ready:


Cable Management (too many cables + too long PSU cables! Personal note: next time, buy a full modular PSU)


Installed:


LED installation:




Done:





I have ordered a sleeved white cables but will take around 60 days to arrive.

Additional modification in my PSU (fan replacement): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I replaced the noisy TT fan by a 120mm Fractal Silent Series R2.
I had to mod the 2-pin connector in order to connect the 3-pin fan.




Hope you guys like it.

The PSU you use only the cables that you need. With your PSU, every cable is connected.
To use less cables on your current PSU, put the SSD in the lower HDD cage.
Arc Mini can do very well, if the cables are blocking the front top fan.
As in my system which is the Midi R2

Nicely done. If you can move the front fan up a spot. Also the plastic rail under the ODD can be removed.

How can i put 2 120mm fans in front?
post #11209 of 16291
I finally finished mine. Added a MSI 780 TI and 2 120MM Sharkoon Blade Fans in Red :-) Dead quiet PC and great temps all around....

Thanks!
In fact this front fan is defective. When ON (even in 5V or 7V) it makes a lot of noise. I turned it off.
I'm getting a new one so I will replace it. It will be installed in top spot.

Thanks for the tip about the plastic rail. I will remove as well.
