Granted, they would be more flexible but the stock cables can be pre-bent/shaped so, when plugged in, they won't stress anything.

Btw, I wasn't picking on your rig specifically (bad wording on my part; yours looks good); I just don't like individually sleeved cables. As you said, tastes are tastes and I'm obviously in the minority.
Lady Fitzgerald,
I didn't feel you were picking on my rig, and no problems whatsoever with your choice of words.
I was making a technical observation, not defending my rig!
I would like to see some new pics on the progress you are making with your new build.
Cheers,
J

lol. I already re-did mine like 5 times and I've only had the rig for about 3 months.

LOL! I've been fighting that urge. At some point, one has to say, "I'm done" (though the reasoning for that I'm not so sure about.) I was in Fry's the other day and had to tear myself away from the case department. I need blinders when I'm in that candy store (at least that candy won't raise my blood sugar levels).

Whew! I was horrified when I reread what I wrote!

My project is on hold right now because the MOBO I want has become unavailable () and it is questionable whether it will be back again. I do have a Plan B board in mind (ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe) but I really, really want the Plan A board (ASUS P8Z77-V Premium). Once I either get the Plan A board or give in and settle for Plan B and get the thing built, I'll post photos.

Hi guys,
So I managed to finish it, take some pics, overclock (thanks Tommy!) and run some benchmarks.
I finally got the new card to run in CF!
I also added some LEDs (not very sure about keeping them) and noise dampening kit (something like Road Kill).
Here are the pics.
Thanks for bearing with me.
Cheers!
J

Well done, Bungee. Looks great. I'm glad you got your CFX figured out. That's a very nice, clean looking rig. Well done on the wiring too.

Really nice rig Juan! Are those custom coolers on your GPUs?

Nice job, Bungee. Since you have a window on the side, I would keep the LEDs. You can always dim or switch them out when you don't need or want them.

No, Gary, those come stock with the Sapphire OC edition. I think they are called Dual X.
