Great rig! I'm sure that the gnarly cabling is part of the effect. Have fun here.

Very nice machine. Ya gotta love the E8400's eh... awesome dual-cores. I'm sure you're having fun gaming. Yes, that cabling is very....um... how should i say... in your face. Tidying up your cables should lower your temps a few degrees.

Looks great.. Is the cabling custom, or did the PSU come with it?

(hehehe..... somebody else to convert to the dark (wet) side down the line...... :) ).

That is an Apevia PSU...it comes standard with far-out cables and a MUCH too short 8-pin connector.

o yes...the 8-pin cable is much to short, well that is if the PSU sits on the bottom of the case.


The E8400 is simply an amazing CPU, runs everything so smooth and effectively. On the stock heatsink the temps sit around 40 degrees celcius and playing game they reach 50, so not to shabby. i plan on upgrading the heatsink within time :)
