Windows 7: Show Us Your Rig [6]

Nice one Ralph, looks good mate.

I know this might sound stupid, but do you really need the front USB3? I have not even bothered connecting mine as it makes things look untidy in my case and if I need USB3 then I have a couple of ports on the back panel anyway which I assume you do too.

Paul.

Looking good Ralph
Why do you need a ram cooler though? Unless you're chucking a load of voltage through it then a cooler isn't needed..

Maybe you guys knows of some slim ram coolers, that would cover all 4 slots, even 3, but no more.
Either that, Ralph, but if you need the USB 3.0, use a passthrough adapter and run it to the back of the case. like this.

Nice looking rig there Ralph. Here's the Newegg RAM cooling selection, the one Cooler Master looks like it may be taller and could miss the USB connector.

I also like front USB ports because, well, they are in the front. I have 4 on the back but, they are on the back, it's a whole lot easier. My rig sits on top of my desk like Paul's but I have very little room to pull it forward or to the side without plowing stuff on the floor. If yours is on the floor or under a desk the it's even more of a PITA.
That's my story.

What I showed is a pass through cable so instead of connecting it to the motherboard, which is messing up the ram cooler, connect the front panel connector to a cable like that and basically move the rear USB 3.0 ports to the front. It's really a pain to get to the back in the dark to plug something in.

The cable you posted Steve still has to be connected to the board.
Oops! My mistake.

No, it connects to the front panel usb 3.0 header and runs out the back of the case. It's a male connector which is what's on the board.

But, I've never made a mistake.

Seriously though, Cooler Master ususally includes one in their accessory supplies with a case. I have a few.

It could use some 24" cables on it.
