Huge improvement. I like the fact that you routed the CPU power cable out of the face of the motherboard and through the back. The case cables at the bottom, you could probably route those through the back of the motherboard and it will give you a cleaner look. Sleeved cables are another way to make your build look better. If the back is already filled, which I doubt, all you can do is get shorter cables for a snugger fit and/or sleeved cables. smile.gif



EDIT: People must be sick seeing my build here but here is what it looks like with the motherboard cables routed through the back: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thank you! It took me some time to figure out what to do with the 8-pin, this case is kind of odd when it comes to cable management, you have to think a bit differently tongue.gif

Also, did u notice my super-ghetto sleeving on the dual molex to 8-pin pci-e adapter, had to use ducttape biggrin.gif

PS. HOLY CRAP, love your build, wish I had the money to get such nice components tongue.gif

Yea I saw it a bit but a lot of people do it so I figured you wanted to do the same. It is a nice improvement from your original picture. A whole lot cleaner.

My entire build didn't cost me too much. Considering I got the H100i for free from my dad's boss (for helping set up VOIP around their office). The entire build cost slightly above $1000, I think about $1050. Just look out for sales and take time upgrading it (Christmas sales are the best) and it'll reach it.

Rate my recent build please. It's a Silverstone TJ08B-E (mATX) case, first mATX build for me. I spent a few hours on cable management; had to get creative. Note the location of the SSD's. biggrin.gif

Nice work on the Corsair! 8.5/10 from me.

Suggestions:
1. clean up the hard drive cables; move the hard drives to the lower cage for better heat dissipation.
1.a. if you move the hard drives, you could remove the middle drive cage for better airflow to your GPUs
2. Run the power of the lower GPU to its own tray opening.
2.a. Alternatively (my favorite!) run both GPU cables from the top of the card straight down to the power supply. But this only makes sense if you make a custom length cable with right angle connectors to the cards.

Heh, wish I was less spontaneous than you with my purchases, allthough I did get my ram while it was still a complete steal tongue.gif
Getting some money from a job I'm doing for the company my dad is working at, so you might see some more pics of this build soon smile.gif

Also, thanks for the feedback and tips, it really made it 10x better!

The Corsair build looks good, very tidy, but the Coolmaster is a little messier. The red fan cabels in the middle of the board kind of stick out. Maybe get some Molex converters and run them directly to the PSU?

Nice work on the mATX build!! They cannot be easy to do. On the SSDs, you going to do velcro or double sided tape?

Otherwise, I would say that is super clean for the size and deserves a 9/10. (the black tape I would change and about the only thing I can pick out about it.
