Very nice! I never thought of putting it there, that's probably a lot better than my velcro solution.

Thanks! Not actually a big fan of BIG RED, the paint is a bit too candy for me, but it does have a few inspirations here and there.

I'm no audiophile, but as long as you turn off all the crappy "features" in the software for the onboard audio, it sounds great to me.

Hide those two sata cables, and this has perfect cable management. Very nice work!

Get the 950, also you kinda butchered the very nice cable management that case has to offer. Clean it up a bit when you have time. Otherwise a very nice build though.

great work, wish this would get a bit more love but the featured quake con build is really stealing the show right now. Congrats on being featured by Corsair!

How did you get a dual radiator CPU loop for 110$?

Wait... theres an H series case from NZXT that's not the H440? I think you're lying to me.

Love the paint job on the GPU. I did something similar on my Gigabyte 270x, but only on the side support bracket.

I would like to note to all the people that compare this to the stock 980ti in terms of performance, remember that for 650$, you're getting a water block on the card already, something you would have to pay about another 100$ for on the 980ti, and I think at least that the two should be compared to each other with similar coolers.

As for the fans, low noise adapters are really your only option to keep noise down unless you want to connect your three case fans to the same PWM header on the motherboard with a 3 way splitter, and control the CPU fan from the CPU header.

Looks nice for a first build, but I have the same case, which I also did my first build in, and the cables could still use some work. As for Afterburner, make sure that you have the setting that applies overclocks on startup enabled, and make sure that you're hitting the little save button, and then one of the numbers to save a profile. It's sorta sucky that there's no indication that you did it properly, but that's just how the software works.

Fair enough. Do you think you would get the 2699V3, or something lesser?

No problem, I got what you were getting at. I've made that mistake a fair amount of times myself.

The 270x was supposed to be in a build for a friend, and I bought it for him for 140$. My old 270 was 80$, and I put that in his system, and the 270x in mine. As for what I think you meant to say as Crossfire, I've thought of doing Crossfire with 2 270x's, but the noise level would increase a lot, I would have to get a new power supply, and everything would be a lot hotter. I'm still considering it, but the 2gb of vram also have me worried for the future.

It's a bit too late for sanding now, but it's a good idea. We did run a hand file against the edges, but I was so eager to get it done that I repainted the panel immediately after we were done.

Thanks so much! I love this mounting place for the SSD, and I went through hell trying to cable manage it properly so the HDD can stay in the floor of the case and the SSD could stay hanging. It's a great spot for it, and it really helps even in covering up some cables. As for the U-Channel, I agree, but if you look at the case in person, the damage really shows in some places, and I wish personally that I went with it. It's no huge deal, but it drives my OCD through the roof sometimes.

NP, thanks! I wouldn't have made the TL;DRs if I didn't want people to make use of them.

Yes, I did. I would recommend using a heat gun/hair drier, but I just peeled them off, which can leave glue residue.

Very nice, love the cable management job you did and the amount of power you packed in that little space. I would highly recommend overclocking your CPU and GPU, though, as APU systems benefit from overclocking the most.

My original idea was actually to try and convince Corsair to send me a windowed side panel, like you can do with NZXT if you own a non windowed case and you want a windowed side panel, but unfortunately they couldn't oblige, so I went to plan B and made one myself. Also Quickfire TK Master Race!

Edit: I checked out your build, and ours really are similar. I even had the same RAM before I swapped into this kit.

Thanks! As for the pictures, some were taken with a borrowed DSLR, and the others were taken with my webcam when the camera wasn't available. I can post more from the DSLR, but the webcam ones are the most recent, showing the carbon fiber vinyl.
