    That was the picture I took after packing up the MoBo. I put the RAM and CPU in an anti-static bag, and only the video card was lying inside my case with heatsink side down.

    Moved my stuff from an open test bench to the Corsair 450D. The 980Ti is, like many high end cards, heavy...

    ...so i found this metal rod, cut it down and added some rubber tips

    The card is better supported now

    Did a little something different. Except for a few SATA and PSU, i really didn't feel like routing all those bulky cables in the back of the case

    Finally decided to switch my Intel stock cooler over to the Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo I bought 3 months ago.

    Oh boy were this a tight fit. To the point of the fan being even a 1mm wider from the fins it would not fit within the by the memory.

    How have I missed this, guess that fit was what you were talking about when you bought new memory?

    That's is correct, the first memory slot were just ever so slightly off straight that I were not happy with it as it was.

    I'm really disapointed that silverstone hasn't brought out another 90 degree raven model case.... seriously i still can't find a case that cools as well and install so cleanly.

    Why aren't any other case manufacturers coming out with 90 degree designed cases... cmon.

    That looks like a really sweet setup, but I've never trusted TeamGroup memory. Both times I ordered their RAM for a friend's build, the modules arrived DOA.

    Many thanks, when I shown this set up in "Show your new stuff" my previous set up were a good performer..

    However now that this new set up has not only solved my boot up issues (Confirmed it were the motherboard at fault) performs much better..

    I have never used TeamGroup memory before so I can't comment on that..

    You can see my setup in the off topic forum this is just a few shots of my tower, it's my cleanest build yet.

    You'll notice I left the shroud off for better air flow.

    No wonder the last screw didn't want to go in all the way, I thought because that's what was written on the PSU it went in that way didn't even think the fan was facing up. I'm a retard. Oh well.

    I'd think that either way was fine, and it would make sense to me optically with the PSU fan not being "stuck" to the floor, but apparently not. :)

    Actually my case is slightly raised so it would have been ideal to have it facing downwards as there are vents there and some mesh.

    I'll probably switch it at some time, right now I'm too lazy, perhaps when I have to install the hard drives Judas is sending me.

    some situations that psu can indeed be mounted the opposite direction and other times not. There are only certain cases where i've found it as a solution to a heat exhaust issue.

    Personally i'm not much of a fan of having it flipped that way as i've watched on as people have lost screws down inside their psu WHILE it was plugged in and flipped on.
