Installed a 24pin sleeved extension and sleeved extensions on the H100 fans. I have the 2 8pin PCIe Bitfenix Extensions in the mail. Pic in my gallery is shows more detail, I think.

Beauiful setup. I love the white WC hoses in the 600T white. I have the same case but can't afford a WC loop at the moment!

very nice...10/10

love the attention to detail with the pci-e power cables and how you gave them a slight twist around each other. great effect

i also really like how your loop runs to and from the vid cards

Even a high end card like a GTX 580 will only see a few 2-3% performance loss going from 16x to 8x.

proof pls? if this is true it would settle alot of my motherboard choices.

Its not necessary bro. It looks great that way. No worries. Performance wont be near a difference to matter.

That's fairly odd. Not odd that salesman at MC is wrong, which he is, but that he'd be trying to convince you to buy a cheaper card.

Update on my Cables. I took the advice of a nice responder and adjusted my hard drive cables and this is what I have come up with...
BEFORE
700
AFTER
450

I plan to get paracord soon and sleeve all my wires, and shorten up the hard drive power's so the are only as long as the need to be.

lol especially since i already had about $1800 worth of stuff piled up to buy at this point. im very pleased with how it all turned out at this point. i just wish i wouldve done a tad bit more browsing on these forums before i went. it definitely wouldve changed a few of my decisions. mainly with my ram. corsair vengeance 1866 8gb set is nice but those super tall heat sinks really screw with my options of an air cooler. it seems like every single one of the air coolers cover up 1 if not both of my left ram sockets preventing me from using the bigger air coolers if i want to use all 4 sockets with this ram.

back on subject of the thread. i am just in awe of some of these rigs. the mod level some of these guys go to in just incredible.
