While it to a bit. I got mine the way i wanted it. Zip Ties, Cable clamps, and 3M VHB Tape

This is my system about a couple months ago. I've changed the cables and the colours. The layout is pretty much the same, I prefer the clean looks! :-)

Actually, the M8 isn't really all that large - at least depending on what you put in it. It's not a very deep case, and once you shove a couple of GPUs, some radiators (OK... I may have gone a little overboard there... but meh), and PSU, drives, etc... it gets small enough to want a pedestal pretty fast.
You've got an SMA8 so technically you've got a pedestal too... it's just integrated into the case itself.



And I agree on the out-of-sight mentality. I try for 'neat' in the sense that airflow is as unobstructed as possible... but beyond that - unless you make every cable custom and plan in layers... eventually that many wires is going to be at least a little 'messy'.

On top of that, some random sparse vertical artifacts when SLI is enabled

the first issue makes me think my RAID is going bad, but the second issue makes me think I may have damaged my board or a GPU while forcing two mismatching EK GPU blocks into the same system with only 1 slot spacing.

moral of the story - don't try to build a new PC outta new parts & used parts while in the process of getting a new job, & moving cross state.

for all I know this used 1080ti I purchased is bunk however, the fact games run fine in SLI, when they do launch leads me to think it might be something else, or a compounded issue. Oh, benches never fail to load though, that's one thing I noticed. Most of my games fail to load, but all of my benches load just fine, no issues stressing one or both cards.

anywho, not the place for this.
Most likely a broken OS.

do not miss. Will not do something that silly again.

I've actually decided my next case will be the LianLi double wide, digital, adjustable deskcase.

...yeah, that one is very tempting / been thinking about it for an upcoming build

Shawnb99 No I don't need all that rad space, I wanted more though. If I could do it over I'd gotten the TX-10 and the pedestal for that and gone crazy. I like having lots of room.
