Alright, I was really confused, because cpu-z told me that I was running in dual-channel, and I thought I was because of how I had the sticks placed, but when you said that it got me re-thinking it all.

I'd give it a 6.5. I would use a lot of zip ties with those non bundled PS wires or get something for them. Also round IDE cable would help alot. Nice build though...wish I could update mine but wife says...

I tried zip ties, then I just said the heck with it, it's a lot better than what it was.

I picked up some zip ties today and did some more work on my wire managment, i think i hit the dot this time.



The ide cable will be gone in a week or so, as will the stock heatsink in 2 weeks (water cooling)



I didn't clean up the hdd rack yet because Im buying dual scis 36gb drives from Peter.cort and didn't want to have to redo it when i do. The ball of 4 pin mole heads isn't usually there, i had to move it out to lay down that side panel.


i still haven't gotten around to cutting some holes in the mobo tray, or cutting holes on the back of the hdd rack for i can flip them around, but i will eventually.

Easily an 8 when you get rid of the IDE cable and flip the hard drive. Where in the world is the 4-pin cpu on your MB. I can't find it lol.

The 4 pin cpu cable goes behind the mobo tray. I'll post another pic or 2 tonight.
