yaggazmacktkauPCPP link to build.How do you all get them to look so clean and orderly and looking like theres hardly any cables lol, I just have no skill for uncluttering.
macktkau You should see the old build in that PCPP link. It was awful so I'm hardly an expert lol. The main things I did to get a nice clean look were:Buy a large case with a PSU shroud (Meshify S2) with good cable management holes. All the slack of the power cables is stuffed into the power supply shroud.Went M.2 only. My motherboard has three m.2 slots. I filled two of them with NVME drives when I bought the board & 9900k in Oct 2018. With this build I decided to replace an 1tb 2.5" 840 from years ago with a 2tb m.2 WD Blue Sata drive.I bought custom cables. From cablemods, I decided to replace the dual daisychained 6+2 from the PSU with three 8 pin single cables. I also needed one molex power (for the sound card) and one Sata power (for the motherboard fan hub) so I also did a custom cable with only the single power connector so that they wouldn't take up much room.I used Noctua 4 pin extensions for all the case fans, and an ARGB splitter/extension for the EK aio. This let me connect everything up behind the rear panel.I could get this build even cleaner, I should have got some cable combs for the 8 pins, and I didn't realise how awful the AX 850's 4+4 pin cables are. They are really stiff and have a gigantic amount of heatshrink (you can see it in the top right corner) which meant I couldn't use the cable hole directly above the three 4 pin ATX connectors. The one last thing was that the USB-C header on the motherboard isn't right angled like a sata cable is, so that black cable above the sound card you can see juts out. Supposedly you can get a right angle cable from Asrock.
LinS123Even though I managed to get a 3090 at launch it took over a week to get it cause UPS messed up the customs paperwork.Still debating on whether or not I should add an exhaust fan in the back. I would definitely have to move the AIO forward a bit more.
ddmath I can't send a PM, I don't have enough posts even though I joined a while back. Canadian I presume? How did the brokerage go, if I may ask? I am in the queue but I am worried about how much the brokerage through someone like UPS will cost me. It might be worth it to wait until I can source a card through a Canadian retailer. Thanks! And, nice setup.

And, nice setup.There are no duties associated with PC parts currently. So brokerage ends up being provincial taxes + $10 UPS brokerage fee. Do not pick UPS Ground, they charge brokerage fees based of the item value instead of a flat fee, pick the UPS Express shipping options. Final cost should be anywhere from $30-150 (after credit card forex conversion and fee) more compared to buying locally. Assuming you use someones associate code (there are plenty of helpful forum goers with their associate code in their signature) you save 5% off MSRP which should help bring the difference down to sub $100. My final cost was just about $140 over Canadian MSRP plus tax.
KennManzjankerson Lovin the black nh-d15, I just ordered one myself to swap out my regular nh-d15. Was going to reapply the thermal paste so perfect time for a swap.
rain2_usaMan, these all look great. Honestly glad to see some people still have cases with drive bays. I just like having that blu-ray / cd-rom drive there. I got my card, but it'll sit nicely in the box until I can secure a MB and CPU.
ilukeberryI see almost 100% non-EVGA motherboards! **** guys!
