Post your "rate my cables" here - Page 1747

post #17461 of 27686
Just got done tidying up things a tiny bit. I'm more or less happy with the state of things, however the PCB of my video card is blue, and the heatpipes are visible... and that drives me nuts. I'm thinking of getting the Crysis Edition 560 ti just because the packaging is good looking and EVGA sells a backplate for it. Thoughts?

Lots of good cable management and your pc is no exception nyates-
9/10
I'm not sure but it may look a bit cleaner if you fan the front-panel connections up from the bottom (grommeted hole). Also can you tuck your NZXT led strip into the corner (in front of the PSU)

I actually like the heatpipes on the card, although they would probably look a bit better if ther were nickle plated. I wouldn't worry too much about as you'll probably be replacing it before too long (unless you were planning to x-fire)

If you want to get creative, you could make a backplate for the card out of some black acrylic

I actually just noticed the LED strip. It used to be tucked away nicely in the corner, but apparently the adhesive on the mounting things that come with it is no longer working. Ill fix it up tonight. I would definitely like the heat pipes if they were nickel as well, but they kinda stick out as copper...

I'll feed up the mobo wires from the bottom like you suggested as well, not sure why I never thought of that before. Thanks for the tips!

Edit: Done!

The drive bay doesn't come out but the card has plenty of breathing space, there's nothing covering the back of the card.

Seriously though, 8.5/10
I can't make the PSU cables neater as the power supply has horrible thick short cables. The back is usually neater because I just got back from a mates house (I brought it with me) and I hadn't plugged everything properly.

I'm probably just going to pull the trigger and sleeve/extend the whole damn power supply, the cables are horrible.

Ok, cant find any grommets, so I tried to make some.
But until I replace my psu, and get the corsair link, I think this is it for a while. Except a ssd drive. Any Suggestions on the ssd?

Thanks

I still want to add leds to this thing but until a get the corsair link I'm holding off on fans and such. I think the link would be better than led fans. Maybe......

Maybe make a cover for the routing hole below the mobo. Also a cover for the wires behind the hard drive cage.

Other then that, it is good. Just needs some small improvements.

Here is my pc in its current state...new ssd and new ram added.
fr0sty: 9.9/10. Looks awesome. For a 10, I would need to see that braid replicated for the gpus/24pin/8-pin/wires on bottom. Beautiful work though.
It's so little!
