    PSU: Corsair 520W HX Modular
    Case: Lian Li PC-A17
    OS: Vista Premium 64

    Re: Finally built my pc

    lol ok I will get pics but the cable management is horrible... this is my first build ever... I haven't finished yet... and I'm having some difficulties... frustrating as hell...

    there's slots on my maximus II mobo called "GP" and "Chasis" and there's also one of those long blue slots which those thin but wide cables plugs in to... and I dont know what the hell im supposed to plug it into ... so....

    Re: Finally built my pc

    Wow, talk about grainy pics.

    1) Get a better camera
    2) Cable management! I mean mine looks pretty much the same Can't you route the excessive cabling through the back of the motherboard tray?
