    Indeed, its a waste. Also, since PhysX isn't used all that much, why not just put it on the bottom?

    Update: New case. Couldn't be happier, managed to get hold of a 600t for £100 brand new





    Just need a storm trooper sticker to finish it off

    Well, finally I built my first computer. It's not the best cable management ever, but I think I did a pretty decent job for being my first time.

    If you were upgrading, why did you go 1156 again and not 1155?

    Probably not the best idea to move a fan cable whilst the fan is still spinning
