MY GOD!!! You built ALL that in your first try? Amen brother amen!! That is a very decent job for a first timer. Now on to the naggs. First of all, all those fans are very unnecesary considering most of your heat is being water cooled. Next, ditch the fan on the side doing nothing, its very unnecesary. Next turn those ugly HDDs around, that will make most of your cables dissapear. AS for sleeving, you dont exactly need it. You dont have cables going accross the case really (if you turn the drives around that is of course). Final thought, make sure when you turn the drives around the black tube is gone. Its very ugly and distracting to my picky eyes. Happy managing!! Ill be posting me and my gfs LAN rigs together soon. I gotta finish hacksawing a POS 24pin PSU.

ya it is my first build infact i only bought my first computer last january. then i craved more power and did alot of reading. i also don't have any computer savey friends so i did it alone. i was pretty confident after tearing apart and tweaking my last computer. consider those hd's flipped, its just one of those things you never think of as a first timer, but now after seeing some rigs on here it seems so obvious.

i'll be taking out that side fan as soon as we get airconditioning installed its like 35c in here right now its actually dropping my cards acouple of degrees with the side off.

Seasonic S12-500

Got it to review, and its a really awesome power supply. Not modular, but it has more connections than i know what to do with :P

Anyways...

A mate of mine said you can use an old biro to substitute a molex remover. Just remove the inside of the biron, and use the plastic casing. Push that over the plug to push the pins in. Or you can use a tiny tiny screwdriver like me.
