Sick build!

 

 

Love your build.

 

 

GREAT camerawork!

 

 

Great choice on the case and props for the cable managment!

 

 

Thank you so much for looking everyone and for the kind words!  I shot a couple of videos just a few minutes ago one on my keyboard and one on the 650D case so both of those should be up soon and I will post them in here :)

Hey! how are you?

How are your PSU cables the perfect length? it doesnt look like youve shortened them.

 

well it is running with the fan up so that makes the 8 pin shorter. the entire build process is shown here if you want to have a look at something specific (there are timestamps for each topic)

Alright guys, the original 650D video I did was one of my first videos and I was not really happy with how it turned out. Here is a new video on the 650D that I made yesterday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You may be thinking the cables look messy in this (which is true) because I added the USB3 and front panel cables back and changed a few things a while back in a hurry and never tidied it.  I did fixed that up after the video, though.

One of the most cleanest looking builds I've seen. Even the back side of the mobo tray isn't entangled with cable spaghetti. Thumbs up :D

 

Love the fact you're using Noctua fans and a bonus to that is that they don't make your build look ugly as hell. Very impressed

Thanks for the videos, it's nice to see the sort of problems reviewers might not see with the few hours they usually spend using the case.

I appreciate it!

No problem! I agree, I like seeing videos on something after someone has used it for awhile. Thanks for watching!

Here is a look at the cables with the USB3.0 and front audio connected after I cleaned it up. I also removed the Noctua NH-D14 fan reducers which I thought looked messy.

Would you stop making me feel bad with your awesome cable management :D.

How much louder do the fans get without the fan speed reducers?

I actually hooked them up to the 650D stock fan controller so I can use that to set them to low med or full (I guess that is 5V 7V and 12V like on the fractal cases) speed. I actually prefer that because when they were fixed at 800rpm I was never able to turn them  up if I wanted to.  The noctua fans aren't that bad really at 12V though, I've had them running full for hours at a time and I barely even notice after I start doing normal stuff. The loudest thing I have right now is actually that Sans Digital mobileRAID with the 40mm fan on it.

Cool, that's why noctua fans are so awesome :). Do you think it would be possible to replace it with a Noctua 40mm fan, if you can get your hands on one (NF-A4x10 FLX) ?

That is the best cable management ever!! I'd leave the side panel off the whole time if it was my rig

I love how minimalistic this whole build looks and that you're a Noctua fan! 

I will definitely replicated your cable management as soon as I have my Define R4! 

 

Do you use a fan controller or do did you plugged your fans into the MoBo headers with the (U.)L.N.A.?
