Update 8 GPUGPU FINALLY!
Yep I finally got a new GPU but
I had to change from the Galax GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White to an MSI 1070 Armor OC because I didn't realise the Galax had a really thick backplate, I had trouble measuring to make sure I had space and I was getting inconsistent answers from MSI so I played it safe and went for the MSI card, it goes well enough.
I thought about going a 1080 version but after thinking about it a 1070 will be good enough for now and I'll get a TI Volta next year, I will be hunting a full white Volta card though.
Looks so much better than the Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X that it's replacing.Cables
I also got around to ordering the CableMod cables to
Ended up costing a decent chunk of $$$, almost $400 AUD shipped, I got custom sized cables as well as colours and finally some 60cm SATA cables and some cable combs.
Bottom combs are the ones I got from CableMod and the black ones are from Mainframe Customs I got years ago, not sure which one I like just yet but I think the Mainframe ones would be a bit better but a lot more stuffing around to get them on.Build & Desk Pics
I'm pretty happy with how the cables came out but down near the PSU they look like utter crap, still not 100% sure how the hell I'm going to fix that.
The desk was a nightmare to cable manage, I had plastic cable covers like I used for my speakers but because my wall is warped they wont stick and keep falling off so for right now little hooks jammed into the wall will do.
Cable management the left side is an utter mess and under the desk is worse but the case hides most of it
And last but not least, the whole setup, the "pink" is actually more of a violet (look at the reflection on the desk to the left for a more accurate colour) but without heavy Photoshop I cant get a good pic with my phone, I will take a proper pic with my big camera when I replace all the monitors, the greens surprisingly accurate though
I changed the fans around a little so now I have the AIO & back fan sucking in and the top ones blowing out, gotta replace the fans though because I'm not happy with them especially the stock AIO ones, they are just annoyingly loud.Monitors
I'm going to try and get them by the end of the year, it'll still be the Viewsonic ones unless something really amazing come out, hoping for 1 per month shut up I'm poor
The cables are an annoying problem but I'll work on them as well as cleaning up the other ugly ones I have hanging around, I'll sleeve what ones I can and work on hiding them for when I'm done and ready to take good
