mah man. one of the major selling points to me.
Best I can do.
(No, I did not choose that RAM.)
>routing cables for no reason but aesthetics in case that's going to be closed, and in such a way that hardware is difficult to swap in and out
Cable management meant something back in the days of ribbon cables. Now it's utterly meaningless except to satisfy the autism of a few perma-virgin neckbeards.
agree on the useless part. but not on the wizard part. you might not be someone who can appreciate computer aesthetics but A LOT of people can. not even only techy people.
>if you're that embarrassed
I am not embarrassed. I have a an extra RAM kit without the gaudy heatspreaders that I could switch to.
You know it's a lot quieter if you put it in a cardboard box.
Get a case that provide you with the option to not give a shit.
This case is so fucking poorly designed.
An entire section where you could literally shove in an entire itx build if you used a pcie riser for your GPU, except it was used solely for a PSU. Talk about pathetic.
Meh, case is a 200r. Airflow and temps are pretty good.
HEY GUISE CABLE MANAGEMENT DOESNT DO ANYTHING LINUS SED SO
>implying alienware could ever get close to this level of perfection
Fighting those tool-less clips for the expansion slots made me want to kick the thing over.
I was given the updated version from a forum member years ago and it was actually a nice and roomy case to work with.
Less than a year after that picture was taken. Never making that mistake again.
I've never touched them since 2010 when I discovered mine was drawing 850W to power a 3.6GHz e8400 + hd4870
obviously faulty, but the fact that I'd had impressively bad DOA rates on their memory as well kinda killed the brand for me
Yeah, the color coding varies. Some indicate channels and some indicate where to install pairs, the manual knows best.
man, i've built many of my friends PCs and holy shit the disasters i've seen..
have you ever cleaned it? "no, and i've had it for 5 years"
and they are not autistics, i mean, they are, but not normie tier, i play games with them
>TFW buy a gaming pc & pay extra for "professional cable management"
It makes a tiny difference in air flow, but not much.
It does makes dusting and cleaning your computer a lot easier though. Besides, I like my shit to look nice, and it also makes changing hardware easier because there isn't shit in the way all over.
1) order case, psu, drives
2) when they arrive order remaining parts
You now have at least a day to manage your cables
this looks exactly like a computer I built in that very case lmao. I thought it was mine actually. But I don't have any gray cables coming out of the back - plus I sold mine.
thanks for the memorys
That is exactly what that side of the case is for... What matters is how it looks on the other side.
The only thing you're going to do by sorting and tying down the cables back there is ensure you will have to break it all apart and do it again when you upgrade, for zero aesthetic benefit. Unless you put your computer on display with the right panel off, fuck I don't know your life.
Two kinds of people spend time on cables
1. Manchildren whose pride and joy is a computer. A fucking computer.
2. People who don't know shit about technology and think it makes a big difference, or who think running components 1-2 degrees lower (in idle only) actually matters.
Pick related are my temps. Go fuck yourselves
Oh shit. I used to work at some school that used to have thouse PC's in very class room for their smartboard.
The amount of times ive had to repair or manage on of thouse, because of retarded children is unbelievable.
You got mad super fast kiddo.
Clearly you don't understand PSU to GPU cabling requirements so I just won't bother explaining or trying to help due to your highly immature reply.
You = classic /g/. <22 years old, big mouth, mommy and daddy's money
Easy cheap option is to get one of these ikea cable trays
Each one of those 3 yellow wires are 18AWG, current rating of 7 amps each, that's 252 watts. A 290(what I assume that card is) might get close to that in furmark, but it's never going to push the limit of that cable.
But no fucking way can you pass 1kW over that for more than a few seconds.
I see you fit in with "2. People who don't know shit about technology".
How do you even think these temperature monitors work? Do you think they send out little mini robots that actually measure the temperature inside your computer? Do you think software on your hard drive can magically leave the platters?
You see, they all work the same. They simply display the number given by the component's firmware. That's it.
>does not record them properly.
Again, do you literally think they send out little mini robots that actually measure the temperature inside your computer?
They simply display the number given by the component's firmware. That's it. There's no difference
Download CoreTemp and share a screenshot of your temperatures.
SpeedFan is extremely unreliable and has proven this time and time again, I'm not saying so because I don'† believe you, in fact, I don'† give two shits about your temperature (and apparently you're in a 12C room), I'm just telling you how utterly terrible SpeedFan is as a program.
Of course, you're too stupid to understand this, it seems.
I'd advise you to go back to /v/ or /reddit/, where ever the fuck you came from, because it obviously isn'† this board, and you stick out like a sore thumb.
Again you're showing how you know absolutely nothing about computers, or even basic high-school science. Temperature is a physical property. It needs a physical device to measure it. Software can't measure it. Software can't "record" it. Software displays a number given by firmware. It's a single line of code.
>I still don'† understand what you'e trying to say, let me just tell you how you don'† know anything about computers!
That's great, but if you would just use your head and learn how to analyze a sentence it would make everything so much easier.
Neither of them sync so it's all a bunch of meaningless bullshit to argue over.
I'm gonna raise my hand because I always get shit tier cases and psu's so im guilty.
That's simply because they don't poll at exactly the same time. Some may use interpolation/extrapolation too, to reduce jitter.
The only component with any sort of detrimental effect at those temps are mechanical hard drives. If you graduate from /g/ memes you can dig up actual clinical trials done on this. Data centers do them all the time
Yeah cable management is mostly for looks, up to you if you think cables look bad or not.
Picture related is good for airflow and well I'm never looking at it because it's closed and at the corner of a desk and wall so...
Been building PCs since like the late 90s and I have no problem with looking at cords. I don't know when cords became ugly. They just can't be in the way and function wise not ruin anything else.
That's not how condensation works retard. Any part that consumes energy will be warmer than the ambient temperature. Condensation forms on things colder than the ambient temperature
>Any part that consumes energy will be warmer than the ambient temperature.
You can cool things below room temperature
>Condensation forms on things colder than the ambient temperature
re-read what i wrote and you'll see i said exactly that
Can't wait to see what kind of cable management this case from NZXT has.
The only way to _temporarily_ cool below room temperature is by using consumables like liquid nitrogen or ice cubes in your water cooling tank or whatever. It works for like 10 minutes
You are retarded for thinking someone's shitposting on /g/ while trying to set an OC record, which is pretty much the only use for those things.
