which direction do you have the cooler blowing? in or out?
haha good eye btw for finding the zip tie and even though it is riding in the center why not just cut it Especially if you want to go for the whole neat look...
New case, CPU and Mobo. Z68/2600k ftw! Case likes fingerprints though but a soft cloth remedies that. Anyone got any ideas to make it cleaner? I wanted to route the front panel headers through another hole besides the one I have a 24p ATX cable in. My case is the Sentey Black Box.
I have the exact same case as you ^^^ I like the case...
Antec P160W. I had it since 2004 up until this summer, then went with a Corsair 650D.
Way ahead of its time back then and still a good case. Mine now has a new owner to love it.
My new build:
OH my bad I should've quoted Wipeouts picture... sorry Lonewolf I don't have the case you posted... I have Wipeouts... I love his case cause I have the exact same one... you posted like a minute before me...
I was thinking 2004? that case is way newer than that! haha oops I thought you posted the Pic right before your first post... I don't know the name of it but it's an Antec case as well
See this case ^^^^^ is where I would make it look all pretty inside because people would see everything... mine not so much... looks really clean man! i'm liking the red and black (although i would personally love blue and black but red would be easier on the eyes) now all you need is a red glow keyboard!
Still some minor modifications to make (waiting on some new fans and a new CPU cooler, prob an H80), as well as some tidying up of the HDD cables in the back, and the optical drive cables.
Case is a Lian Li B25FWB.
I'm ordering some multi sleeved connectors for the 24/8/6/6/usb/front panel/audio but let me know how this looks, i still want to do some fine tuning... Need to decide between white or black single multi braided cables...
I have the 600T SE as well, and I just spent a few hours last night transporting into it from an Antec 300. I'll put up some pics later tonight. Actually, now that I think about, I have the same MB, Ram, and HSF.
You might consider moving that HDD cage down to the bottom. Some people have been putting their HDDs in the 5.25" bays to remove them completey. How did you solve the USB3 header issue? I zip tied the bracket to the back side of the 5.25" bays. Are you using the window or the mesh w/fans?
Have you noticed any problems with your rear panel not fitting in completely? Mine seems to be bowed out a little bit on the bottom of the case?
I like seeing all these hidden cabling jobs but would also love to see some or more where the cabling/wiring is a focal point of the case.
i'm not experiencing any bowing of the back panel, i used maybe 50 zip ties to secure everything down and tuck the I/O cables, fan cables etc behind the 5.25" bays... also running sata power and sata data cables along the bottom of the case.
Do you have rounded PSU cables? I tried securing them down, but I have a non-modular PSU and there are just a shit ton of round cables back there no matter how much I zip tie them. I can probably do a better job of routing them in the back this weekend.
It's an older Corsair 750 PSU, but it is still fantastic and I have no reason to get rid of it but for wanting a modular one.
I am thinking about the mesh as well, but my temps are actually not too bad with just the stock fans in there. Staying right around 68-70C in IBT and Prime, and only hits about 60C gaming. Low 30s idle. I think the rear exhaust is probably too weak for the push pull, but the thing is very quiet so I might not mess with it.
man Corsair cases are just cheating, no modding involved for pure win cable management.
That said, here's mine, no window in my lian li case, so i didn't put forth a huge effort to make it look nice, especially the 4pin power to the board, need an extension for it. P;is my IDE dvd-rw drive isn't helping me any.
