I love how the only picture is one of an empty case on the store shelf.

That mnpctech bracket is interesting. I've never seen one before but I like the idea of it and what it accomplishes.

I like the irony in the title lol. Also I just had to say, I think you left the protective plastic on the MSI badge.

Thanks for looking, the pattern was actually from the first advertisement I ever saw for ensourced.

I love the ensourced cables, I think they fit perfect and look stunning. I actually came up with the sleeve pattern for the cables I made from pictures on their website.

Extensions for the radiator? No, it was long enough, but the H100i GTX is an all in one sealed unit. I don't think you can buy extensions for it, unless you were going to tear it apart and try to do your own hoses out of warranty.

I have the same case and it's actually pretty small for a mid size case that can hold an atx board.

Those are cable combs. They have ones that clip on and they have ones you can slide on before you pin your cables. I got mine from Mainframe Customs but there are other sites you can buy them from too.

If you're talking about gaming with 980ti's then hyper threading with the i7 isn't going to make much, if any, difference over the i5. In fact there are times when hyper threading could hurt gaming performance. Take a look at this as an example: http://www.gamersnexus.net/game-bench/1911-gta-v-cpu-benchmark-4790k-3570k-9590-more

The desk setup looks really nice, I think the lighting makes it. I have to ask, where did you get the desktop wallpaper/background?

Yea I saw those too, plus I liked that the coldzero plate screws on instead of being magnetic. I also found one on another site that looked nice and was actually aluminum but that was after I had already bought mine.

Corsair still has some really good units. It just depends what model you get. Ex. The AX760 is supposed to be a really good tier 1 unit. It's always good to check out reviews and tests of a unit you're looking to buy.

I completely agree with you about the CX430 not being a good choice or even a great unit in general. The same is true with something like my EVGA power supply, the G2 I got is great but the G1 is crap. I only commented originally to mention that he should still have 430 total max watts to work with. Not that the supply was good or that he should even push it up close to that maximum rating.

Not really sure why I got down voted just for explaining how power supply efficiency works. http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/how-does-psu-efficiency-affect-me-and-do-i-really-need-an-80-plus-gold-power-supply.129456/ not that this is the most official source or article but it should explain the point well enough.

I'm not saying the CX430 is a good idea but as far as the wattage I'm pretty sure that's not how it works. If it's 83% efficient that doesn't mean he'll only get 83% of the rated wattage, it means that the output of the psu will only be 83% of what it's pulling from the wall. So he'll have to pull over 500 watts to be able to use 430.

Haha yea I was wondering when someone was gonna ask that, I probably should have mentioned it in the description. I originally bought the 8 gigs of sniper series ram. Then my friend gave me a 4gb ripjaw x stick he got for free and I bought a second 4gb stick to go with it for a total of 16 gigs. I know people usually recommend buying in kits but I figured they're running the same speed and timings so it was worth a shot. I haven't had any issues yet but if I run into some I'll probably just take out the ripjaws and keep the original sniper kit.

I actually looked at getting the Noctis 450, that was my other first choice but it was announced and not released yet. It was released a week or two after I bought the S340 but I'm definitely happy with what I ended up getting.

Those are cable combs, there are different ones you can find online. MAINFrame Customs has them but so do other sites too. They have ones like mine that clip on or other ones that have to be slid on before you pin the connectors.

I got the backplate from a site called coldzero. They have 3 different versions for our card, this is the link to the page that shows all 3: http://www.coldzero.eu/310-msi-gtx-970-gaming-pcb-13. Make sure you check if you have the older pcb 1.1 or the new 1.3 because it won't fit right if you buy the wrong one. Also there's another site I found after buying this backplate that sells aluminum ones but etched with a little bit different design on the back: http://megcustom.com/index.php?mid=Backplate&document_srl=21482&ckattempt=1. And I love the S340, it's a nice simple case that's built well and has great cable management. It was really easy to work with and it's a nice size for a mid size atx case too.

Sorry, I posted the one I got for my Nvidia card but I think they carry AMD backplates on the site too. I should have posted one for a 390/390x or just the site in general.

I agree with the comments about putting the card in the top slot. Usually that's recommended for single cards. And with a board like mine, the Asus Maximus Hero VII, would actually run with only half the lanes in the bottom slot. Although that might not be the case with this board so it might not matter.

I think Atron only commented that because the description on OP's build mentioned wanting to upgrade to Skylake "when the Skylake 6700k is finally available."

Gotcha, that threw me off for a second. I have the same case, cooler, and now the same fans but you can't see the nice side of the fans on my cooler since I have them as intakes :/

I have an H100i GTX with the same case and fans, and I set it up in the same configuration. Originally I was using the standard push setup and decided to experiment and see if there was a difference changing the fans to pull. I got much better idle temps and a little bit better load temps with the fans pulling air through the the radiator so I ended up leaving them that way.

Actually, based on your pictures it looks like you also plugged at least one of your hard drives into one of the bottom SATA ports, that might have been part of your problem. Then again maybe not lol, just thought I would share my experience and the headache I had.

I had a similar issue with my Asus Hero motherboard booting slow and freezing on startup. Turns out that I had my ssd with my operating system plugged into one of the two bottom SATA connectors that run on the ASMedia chipset instead of the Intel chipset. Moving the plug to one of top six SATA connectors fixed the problem for me.

Nice build but curiosity forces me to ask, why did you get a 750ti instead of a 960 for the same price?

I have the same case with an MSI 970 that sits at a similar, but not as bad, angle. It seems like part the of issue is where the card attaches to the case and how it lines up.
