Tier 5 Build
Well, here is my newly built PC finally after who know how long of talking about it. Haha. Everything works flawlessly, and the only thing I screwed up on was not ordering a Serial ATA DVD-ROM drive. I thought i would just use my Parrell ATA drive from my other PC, yeah, didn't work out so well. So as of now, my PC is a paperweight.

3.3GHZ Intel Core i5-3550 Ivy Bridge
8GB G.Skill SNIPER 1333MHZ
CoolerMaster CM690II Case
XFX 6850 1GB GDDR5
Rosewill HIVE 550 Watt modular power supply
Biostar Z77B LGA 1155 motherboard
Samsung 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive (Reused from older build)
(Soon to arrive) ASUS 24X DVD Burner

Pictures are way too big.
Before Build: http://i46.tinypic.com/2d9tcbc.jpg

Cable Management skills are terrible.
After Build: http://i48.tinypic.com/148jax2.jpg

*Not Pictured* Just took out the extra hard drive bays, as I saw you could on Beany's thread.

Quick Question: Which plug is it to make the front case fan LED turn on?

Very Nice! Glad some more people have found the awesomesauce that is the 690 II Big Grin

One thing though, why don't you run all your cables through the grommet holes along the back panel? It would really help with airflow as well as make everything look much cleaner. There are also 2 holes along the top for the CPU power in optimal locations.

Well, seeing as I won't be able to use it until Tuesday, I guess I will be working on some better cable management. Although it looks better then it did before.
