I just want to personally thank you...

For making me hate my cable management.

+1,000

Sheepzorable 3 Builds 7 points 54 months ago

This build really puts my OCD into place.

Mayday9158 3 points 53 months ago

Well he is using a NZXT case so cable management is way easier..

asleader12 1 Build 1 point 50 months ago

he didn't even use the extra cable box at the bottom of the case. Nice job on the cables

squidsquad 1 point 45 months ago

Yes he did?... What are you please talking about

asleader12 1 Build 1 point 50 months ago

And the build. Don't forget the build.

jimmystempura 2 Builds 5 points 54 months ago

Nice cable management.

IrshaadH 1 Build 2 points 54 months ago

This is definitely impressive. Especially in a case that motivates you to just stuff all your cables in the bottom!

smQC 1 Build 4 points 54 months ago

It looks naked... some cables are needed so ppl like me dont freak out and think you have intel's wireless hardware already D:

(its great work in all seriousness)

awlicata 1 Build 3 points 54 months ago

StonerAardvark 1 point 54 months ago

You're an artist. +1

QuantumPhysics 1 point 54 months ago

Where did you get your MOBO at that price?

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 54 months ago

Microcenter. :)

akula2 1 point 54 months ago

Good work. I liked that case. RAZER Green worth the price? Also, what car is that?

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 54 months ago

Razer Green is only worth if it you feel like it's worth it.

As for the car, it's a 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye.

akula2 1 point 54 months ago

I like it but price is too high. I might buy like NZXT Phantom 530 White or Corsair 600T White. Undecided yet...but I love the model you used.

bobby0825 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Great cable management. I love your 250D build more. lol

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 54 months ago

Keep an eye out for my Thermaltake Core V1 build! :)

actechy 7 Builds 2 points 54 months ago

I've had my eye on that case, looking forward to the build!

700mAdOg700 1 point 54 months ago

That is EXPENSIVE RAM!!! I would spend like 90$ max on 8 gb of ram

nima2007 1 point 53 months ago

nice

Sephrinx 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

I've got to say that is some gorgeous cable management. I almost want to just throw a mess of cords and wires at you, so you can create a thing of beauty with them.

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 51 months ago

Thanks! haha bring it on!

QuelVisage 1 Build 1 point 50 months ago

Much KUDOS on the cable management. I'm getting this case and I'm going to use this build as a guide. Will you add a HDD or a bigger SSD?

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 50 months ago

I've finally got the 1TB SSD in and I've went ahead and installed it on the top slot, right above the reservoir.

theninja35 1 point 50 months ago

Sexy! But does the Kraken work like that? I just put mine in with the pipes at the bottom and I'm scared to turn it around.

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 2 points 50 months ago

Yeah, works fine. It's sealed so there's very little air in the system.

M3RICA_ 1 point 49 months ago

Car not included.

MylesRawr 2 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

Superb build! How're you finding the x31? Picking mine up Saturday :)

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

It's fine. The H75 / H105 is a significantly better unit. Heck, I'd even go for the H110i GTX, but the former two are considerably better than the X31.

MylesRawr 2 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

Thanks for the reply. Better performance-wise or better build quality/leak prevention?

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

It's better performance wise because it has a thicker radiator and a better pump. Not to mention there's only a SINGLE wire coming out of the pump instead of like 5. The H75/H105 series are great units.

benhaube 1 point 42 months ago

I too have a Kraken x31 on the way. I am using an NZXT S340 case in Black/Red

Beaktrots 1 point 44 months ago

Great build +1

Bohemian 1 point 42 months ago

Could this motherboard be exchanged for one which had an optical or coaxial input? I'm thinking of buying this build.

Lavins submitter 11 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

Yes you certainly can. This was just a build I did and you can definitely use it as a guideline for your build.

cjxgraphics 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Holy smokes, this thing is beautiful. I'm searching parts for my first build in a long time, and what I've been picking out looks much like your build. How has yours been holding up over the past year or so? And is there anything you'd have done differently if you could rebuild?

BenTheDerp 1 point 37 months ago

Cable management made me moist...

ellul 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

hey man hows the kraken cooler to work with? heard it can be tricky?

johnny8557 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Awesome,Awesome build,just finished my build with this mobo,now I'm searching for newest mobo bios,whats yours running on,E7917IMS V1.12? 1+ from me for this awesome rig!

Cwooley 1 Build 0 points 36 months ago

Cable management is alright I guess.
