Good Afternoon everyone. Today I have decided to install this item:
 

 
Now here is the final build pic:
 

 
There is some dust on the inside of the side panel window so I will clean that up tomorrow. That probably occurred during disassembly. The 16 pin GPU cable is not bent although it looks that way in the picture. Everything in the front is nice and tidy. 
 
I have added a Hamster wheel gif to the cooler LCD screen. Hard to see it in the picture, but that Hamster is spinning that wheel:
 

 
The Corsair shift PSU puts the connectors on the side which makes cable management so much easier.

    It’s nice to have the shift if a case allows for it. I could see it have problems for some case designs. I do however think that it’s a change that might be worth a change to since behind the motherboard tray is the best way to manage cables.

    Here is a picture of the back and the front. Yes the cables look like a mess but on the Corsair 5000X that is what the rear hinge door is for (to hide the mess). I noticed that my light strip is not in the right place so I'll fix that later.

    The RM1200X has ribbon style cables. These are easier to maneuver into place and also allows the rear hinge door to close more easily.

    I can relate to that cable management. 😁 However, it's a brilliant rig. Great work!

    The cables look like a mess because I have an iCUE Corsair Commander Pro installed as well as a Corsair Lighting node Pro. Lots of fans, lighting strips, and RGB going on.

    If you remove the shroud and add 3 more intake fans your case would be much cooler. Thats what I did.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Your rig seems similar to mine. I have a Corsair Commander Core for the AIO, a 5-in-1 ARGB splitter for the fans, and a Lian Li Strimer controller. All crammed inside a single mATX case. :)

    Did the performance increase after adding the new MP700?
     
    It would be nice to see the results before you changed the M.2
     
    Did you do a clean install or clone the old drive?
