    lol it looks much better!i forgot to get a pic i was so excited! He put my pc together for me because i had just spent nearly 2k had no idea what i was doing, he said "i can do it for you, i have A+ certification (i asked for the cert it was a comptia looked as legit as my EMT-b) and i work at the computer repairshop and take apart and put them back together to find the problem etc....". It looked great on paper, as they say, so i agreed.

    Yeah you saw the results never again, i gradually grew more comfortable with opening up the pc and moving stuff about (fixing the ram checking the cables installing the 2 motherboard screws adding zipties etc) and from now on ill be doing everything myself. I build my mom a PC a couple weeks before mothersday and fixed my nephews and cleaned out and added new tim to my sisters computer. All in all there was a silver lining. More pics to follow

    Looks like its exhausing to me, as the fan rotates counter clockwise and look at the orientation of the blades.

    And I was wrong!

    Lol yeah it is, i had to remove it to fit my hand back there rofl i installed it wrong, oops, luckily im not overclocked at the moment. No worries though the noctua does such a good job it wont affect it for the time being, once i do the major overhaul/upgrade ill redo it, thanks for pointing it out!

    Did you try flipping the PSU over to get the wires closer to the hole on the mobo tray? The CPU power might reach if you do that, and it'll give you a little more length on the rest of the cables too.

    Never thought of it that way...

    Thanks!

    When my 8pin CPU wouldnt reach, I would run it close to the mobo, under the GPU as there is a nice space for that between the board and card.

    I have a corsair AX-1200 but I'm very disappointed by it.

    It constantly produces a faint 2kHz sound that is getting into my nerves.

    I managed to cleanly record the sound by putting a microphone near the fan exhaust and then filter the recorded sound with a band pass filter at 2kHz.

    Here's the result (amplified): http://www.freesound.org/people/Zibri/sounds/133445

    I know I can RMA the product and Corsair already approved it but I can't afford any downtime and I hate I will have to rewire all my pc.

    I expected much more quality check on this product.

    yeah thats the noise i mentioned in one of my earlier posts its has to do with one of the CPUs instruction sets or protocol features that can be disabled but may decrease performance i ended up going with the antec and i love it

    That sound has nothing to do with the CPU. If I stop the PSU fan manually the sound stops too.. it's a faulty ball-bearing. Corsair already contacted me and arranged for an RMA. They have an excellent support, but lately they have a very low quality check.

    About 1000 W.. but I strongly suggest to get a 1200 to have a good margin for overclocking and stability.
