post #3671 of 15204
Is it dangerous to have my power supply upside down, the fan facing the bottom of the case? I noticed that the bottom of the case is slightly elevated, is there enough air there or is my PSU in danger? I only did this because it's the only way a few cables will reach while I wait for my new PSU to come in.

Also, is it possible to fit the Rasa 240 without taking out any of the fans? I would like to keep all the fans while getting in to water cooling.

Edit: Last question, what is everyone doing with their HD audio cable? Right now might is going across my motherboard which ruins my nearly perfect cable management.

Looks sick, is the PlexiGlass on the outside? Also, more pics and higher res!

I'm ordering a NZXT Phantom in the upcoming month, hopefully it drops in price, so I can afford more accessories.

My audio cable is run behind the mobo tray and through the hole where the 90deg bent tab for the PSU is.

@chinesethunda
A pull configuration would be the best, because the rad is getting cold air from outside of the case. This will result in better water temperature.

okay thanks for the info. probably not going to do w/c for a while, but leaving that option open should I ever see any cheap w/c parts lol

as for the audio cable, mine just goes under the mobo and out from where the psu cables go and then gets attached to my xonar d1

Does anyone ever get irritated at the sheer size of this thing?

I lugged mine in a Sunbeamtech LAN bag to a friend's house the other weekend and it made me wish I had gone mid-tower
