GPU: Palit GTX 460 SE 1GB
Memory: G-Skill Ripjaw 4GBx2 DDR3
HDD: Corsair 80GB SSD
PSU: Antec Hybrid 750W
Optical: LG DVD burner
Monitor: ASUS 23" 1080p LED with speakers
Mobo: Gigabyte Socket AM3/AMD 890GX/SATA3&USB3.0/A&V&GbE/ATX Motherboard
Case: Corsair 600T Graphite

I'll talk more about the build later and post some pics. Just got called down to the ER!

Ok I just did the Windows 7 computer grader application and I got a 7.2 out of a possible 7.9. Not bad I guess!

Mine hits a 5.9 with my HDDs bringing it down. But I haven't retested since the new board and a fresh copy of Windows.

I've got a few suggestions to make it look pretty....

1. move the rats nest of wires from PSU to the back of the case.... there is PLENTY of room back there to ziptie it down and get it out of sight.
2. Move the SATA wires from the current hole to the one below it to get the connection in straight.
3. Run the USB3 through the hole in the upperleft (where the PSU plugs into the 4/8 pin and then run it around the fan then out the PCI slot.
4. take the front panel wires and ziptie them to the provided notches on the back of the mobo tray. That will open that area behind the HDDs to look clean.





If you lived close enough I'd do your cable management for a pack of smokes.... thats how much I enjoy working on these cases.

Damn, I love the cable management in that case. Nice job guys! It'd be nice if it had a side window to show off the tidiness.
