The vertical slot is a extra 8th slot.

COMPUTIAC, very well done. Great job on the wiring, you should be proud of that build.

AddRam, some SSDs don't show temps and a few do.

Excellent build COMPUTIAC and a very tidy job with the cable's mate. I bet your well pleased


I come across this cabling guide yesterday that a reader of the Kit Guru facrebook page wrote and thought it may help some folk in the future,

Reader Glen Lonnen

1. If you are managing the cables whilst building a system don’t start off by putting your Psu in the case instead manage the cables you already have in the case.
Use the cable management tags on the case to tie wrap the cables. I do recommend using something that you can undo and redo, as you may need to do that a few times to
find the best route for your cables. I personally use them twisty ties you get with products in packaging. You will also notice on image 1 I have turned the case fan so
the cable can be easily concealed from view or fed through the motherboard plate .

2. Insert your psu face down this will ensure your cables can be concealed easier as they will be inline with the motherboard plate. (only do this if you have vents
in the bottom of the case for the psu) . Start off by grouping all the cables together and feeding them behind your motherboard plate if your case has this option. When
locating the cables do them one by one tieing them as you go along. Try to keep your cables in strait lines and try not to cross them over getting them tangled. You may do
this several times until you find the best rout.

3. depending on the case will depending on how you rout the cabling for your hdd’s , HD audio & front panel ect. In image 3 you will see I have fed the hdd cables behind
the hdd I have found this rout is best in this case im using in this guide. The hd audio on this motherboard is located in the centre so I have lined the cable up with the
pci-e lane in a straight line so it can be concealed by the graphics card. when you put the case panel on over your cables, you may need to lay the case flat on the floor and
use the length of your forearms to keep the panel flat whilst sliding the panel on. tidier the cables easier this will be

simple rules is strait lines, tie as you go & take your time thinking of the best route for your cables. DON’T RUSH. This is not a perfect example I wanted to use a case on a
budget to show you can achieve good cable management even on a budget. If your case does not have a bottom mounted psu or at least some room behind the motherboard plate you may
wont to re-invest in a different case if your cable management bothers you. That being said all cases can have tidy cables to some level, my first modern gaming system was a
micro hp pro with a corsair gs500 in it. if you don't wont to invest in anther case and you have a top mounted psu you may wont to drop your dvd drive by 1. this will allow for
excess cables to be concealed better above the dvd drive. you may also use the case arm to tie the cables to if you do not have management behind the motherboard tray.

I was not happy with the amount of space the rad with 2 fans took up at the rear of the case, so I moved it to a new position at the front of the case. It took few little modifications but it is there now and fixed solidly, it makes the inside of the case look a lot clearer.

See before and after pic.
