Post your "rate my cables" here - Page 610

post #6091 of 27686
Yeah, I don't think you can fit 24pin or the 4pin cpu power cable in between the motherboard and tray. Besides, is there any airflow behind the tray itself?

Edit: hehe, this thread has been linked back to MaxPC's forum...

Well there's always air moving everywhere in the case, either trying to escape (positive air pressure), or trying to get in (negative air pressure) through every possible way.
So it may seem unlikely but there is air moving around behind the motherboard tray. On my 690 there is even a place to put an exhaust fan behind the mobo tray.

I put a tissue paper by it to see if there is any air moving and there definitely is, I did this to all the places where there are no fans pretty much.

Thank you for the correction. The photos generate a optical illusion of sorts leading some of us to think perhaps some of the cords are in fact compromising airflow around and behind the mobo. I appreciate the feedback.

@ slash129 & Ramzinho

yes i agree, for not drilling you did the best you could to clear up the wires and get them out of the airflow. Maybe some cable sleeving tho?

Didn't come here to troll or provoke anyone who has done this mod. Asthetically is beautiful. I'm just looking out for the health of your sig rig.
Sorry gotta disagree here. If it was so important to get good case air flow behind the motherboard then they would be manufacturing cases that give air flow behind the motherboard. Haven't even seen 1 yet. I sure wouldn't mind some proof on your theory. EDIT: Many cases do give a spot for a fan on the backplate area of the CPU but not the motherboard because the heat does not transfer behind the metal plate supporting the motherboard.

Ok lets try this again -_- Got me the SATA DVD burner form the local PC shop for 28$, Sony Optiarc 24XDVD R and 8X DVD RW, with 48X CD R

I don't know what to do about the DVD sata power cable and the HDD, and I don't wanna flip the HDD around either so that limits what I can do with it. I'll bust out the hole saw this weekend and make the hole on top for that thick strand of cables that goes to the power button and the USB ports on the top right. I have a 1" hole saw that will do the trick nicely.

http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i1...g/water004.jpg
I moved the case fans to the top to get air flow directly to the back Radiator fans and I kept the HDD cage in that spot cause I wanted to keep airflow going to the power supply also.

It has been a dream of mine for YEARS to have the Optical drive on the bottom, since I had to stand up many times to see what CD was in the drives, or to put it in safely without scratching, I scratched many CDs from not being able to see exactly where it was going when the drives were up top, now it's very easy since its on the bottom, and eaiser (for my lazy asss) to access the fan controls
