Finally got everything in my new rig working. I'm quite happy with it all, all working nicely except the H100 which seems to have the noise issue inherent in many units causing it to sound like a noisy fish pump. I need to either make a voltage adapter for it or see if a RMA will fix it, but I don't wan't to do either (I just want it to shut up :P).

I still have some minor adjustments to make, the main one being I cant close the back panel due to the cables, I'll fix it when I can be bothered.

Bit of an odd angle but I had it on a longer exposure to get the lighting right, I had no tripod so I had to improvise with books :P.

They are silverstone Ap121 blue Led fans. The light they produce is fantastic, unlike many fans which have the LEDs in the frame, these have the LEDs in the center of the fan, completely lighting up the blades as you can see. I'm not a huge fan of their silver frames though. Noise wise...average, full speed you do hear them, and they make a loud humming sound using PWM, but they undervolt with the included adapters just fine, and virtually silent on 5 and 7 volts. Airflow wise, they are made to be focused airflow, and they do that well, but they don't move as much air as I would hope. Overall, not bad, but when I go get more fans, I'll be trying something new I think, Corsairs fans look very nice, not to mention the fact I'm a bit of a fan boy :P

Home 7 64 on Alienware and Asus. W8 on Lenovo.
Here is my baby I build in spring of 2011

Best pics I could do. See profile for system specs.

Wire management wasn't too bad but installing those bottom two SSD's wasn't the easiest, a lot of bending and forcing the power and sata wires in place.

Pic 3 you can see I'm ready to install a second 6950, the two power connecters just laying there are being patient with me.

Last pic I imagine I could of used a larger fan or another type of cooling system on top but this setup works just fine. Never have issues with temps.

My previous pc was a HP Pav P4. I wonder when this rig will begin to look like my old P4? I think a new rig with some ability to upgrade can last a person 3-5 years.

I'm sticking with my old Phenom II Black Edition 6 core for now, the newer FX and Vision cpu's don't look like much of an upgrade yet.

Just like any other hobby, if you wanna play you gotta pay.

The new gear looks off the hook sweet. I wonder why the 500 is having a space issue for the wires but really as long as it closes even if it pooches out some who cares? The look of the case, mobo, ram, cooler, fans it's all real clean.....great job!

Another wicked system and that six core is a massive performer. Yes do crossfire and post some pic's when you do. I like the hints of red in the system and I'll bet it glows nice in the dark !

It's really just an issue of cable management, I can get it to close but there is a lot of bulging :P. I just need to arrange it a little better, so many cables though, 4 sata, 2 sata power, 1 molex power, the 24 pin, 8 pin, the huge ass USB 3.0, case power and audio, 2 6 pins, 4 fan cables, and while they all could fit in the bulge shape in the panel, the grommits where all the cables want to be only allows for 1-2 cm of space, it's tricky :P
