If you ever get bored of your Tagan/A+ let me know. I'll take it off you in a heartbeat.

You could work on some cable management but for a first water cooled rig it sure don't look to bad.

Noise? its not that noisy when the case is on. plus i can lower all the fan levels if im not using it. i can low it up to 8xx something. Forgot it, I'm used to the noise of the fans lol. Its been running for like 4days now x_x

Sure i'll let you know. I'm looking for a gaming laptop now trade to this beast >.> but if ever ill be parting this baby out. I'll be sure running to you. and if ever take the whole case with the water cooling shiz on it. :)

Cable management? I've done my best or maybe? there could be more to fix but im not really a pro. Its my 1st build. The bottum part used to be like a garbage. i tied all the PSU cables in to one.. and the other tie is the sata and inverter cables. Don't know how to fix it anymore lol. and there's this 1 audoe cable connected to the Supreme FX that's the best thing i could do ( running it low and connect it to the Sound Card lol )

ppd? btw my temps right now are like 76F maybe its just because my room is cold. but normally it runs 79F.

Highest temp i got is 81-82F. Its basically pretty low instead of using fans. before i had a fan rig. it runs like 39-43ishC its like 5-6C low than fan cooling

DAMN IT!

Anywho, looks okay for an enermax powered build. Those cables will stand out no matter how hard you try to hide them..
