Nice rig, however I struggle with $1000 GPU let alone 2?.....You need the EVGA 4 PCIe board so you can spread the cards apart!

No its looking like one of the cards is faulty, its going back.
Not having a lot of luck in the graphics dept.

A.) Dribble.

B.) Cable management!

That is all...

DeSade

The cables are managed......
As much as I could anyway. It seems to be a bit of a art form.

It's not an art, it's just lots of time, lots of cable ties.

Dribble, drool.... and yeah, hate to say it but cable management. I spend about 4 hours with my last build, very annoying work but so worth it.

It is an art.

OK most of us can manage to tidy them up quite nicely. But now and then you meet someone who just does a quick flip of the wrist and you have an amazing work of art.

I've seen it.

Oh and qazwsxokmijn - I've done mine now.

As long as the case shuts & the fans turn, they are managed enough :)

He was using it being "an art" as an excuse not to do anything. A medium amount of time and some elbow grease can do wonders. Just plugging everything in and declaring it done doesn't work.

Some people can do amazing things with it. The insides of some PC's make it almost a crime to look at the screen sometimes.

Actually when I was building it I spent 3 hours routing the cables.
Yes I admit there is a bit of a jumble at the bottom near the PSU but the main space of the case is cable free.

Nah. It's better but the useless lack of cable management means the main power cables are still stuffed in the drive bays. Yuk.

I hear that, I was expecting much more room at the back of the HAF 932 for cables, that design aspect let down the case.

Just installed the replacement card and the SLI is running well.

Oh well then. I still haven't transferred my rig into your old case, but will do during the mid-semester break. Think I'll be enjoying the nice cable management the case provides!

Yes, it has. This one is rather crap considering it's price.
