And i thought i was bad!! If i got this right i should get pic's here. Windows 10 has been hiding my pictures. Google Photos just did find about 500 photos. So i will see if this works. I told you that i had a fish tank. Its for sale so i can make the next addition. Thats #4. I can scoot the tank down towards the future desk extension. I want to place all the tv and Dish junk up on the top so i have less dust. Just like my tower. First is my fish tank. Next if i can get it here is my train layout. Its about 4 foot long. I need 4 foot for my 4th section. I had redid my original layout 3 times now. Mostly to make it fit better.
Fish tank is where i want my new section is where it is. new area where i want to have a coal yard and mine. This part of the layout is 8 foot by 3 foot. Thats why i am always keeping my workshop pretty much a mess. Later, wd

Wow, I missed this post.Sorry TC. That section is going to be my new section. It will give me 4 foot and that makes the layout a L shape. It was built so far in two pieces. All together 10 years have gone into the build. The next section will be a Coal mine. The other 3X8 foot is a lumber yard and logging camp. All is based on the West Virginia area of the country. I worked in a lumber mill. That one closed in 78. It had been around for something like 60 years. The small mine is just .. small because i don't have more room for a big section. Have a shot of the mill i will be building. Its good for my hands and i like doing the research and the building. This section will be a 2X4 Foot piece. I can throw a couple more of the rest of the layout while i'm here.

Finally got the time to finish up the wire management and whatnot. Found a couple of spots I need to tidy up while taking the pic, but hey... whatever. :p

Here's a couple of thoughts I will pass along to you. I use both of these.

90-degree 24-pin adapter Flattens out the 24-pin connection so it doesn't bulge out into the case.

180-degree 8-pin adapters You will need two sets of these as a set has two opposite facing pin sets. It let's you route the GPU power connections flat behind the card.

I already have the 180 connectors for the GPU and I bought the 90 degree with the capacitors from Coolermaster, but due to the case (and placement of the cut-outs) it makes the 24 pin sit at a wonky angle and the cables don't want to train right, so I ended up not using it. I also have a USB 3.0 90 degree connector just to make it all look pleasing to the eye. :p

But I'm right there with you and the thought process... At this point it's about aesthetics, since I already have the performance.
