Tide the cables up, it look abit too messy. If posible i think the cooler would look alot better with black fans, i know noctua fans are great, but look is importain too i think.

Noctua's are great fans but the colour combinations is just horrible

i'm going to tidy up the cables once i get a new video card
don't want to tie everything down/together to find out in a month i need more cable so i will have to redo it
though there's some wires that i'm not too sure if i can hide because they're not long enough to route around

i do find the case fans to be a bit loud with the vroom sound but wasn't sure which fan so was going to start unplugging them to find the loud one and replace it probably

yeah don't really like the noctua look but i'll take it for the kind of performance it's giving me

no it's a Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

thanks

two cooler tower
the heat pipe is a U shape
but instead of putting it all together on one set if fins they divide it into two set of fins
the thing is massive
the box is bigger than my head (the box mostly has protection in case someone drops it cause it's so heavy) but the heat sink including fans is probably slightly smaller than my head
