    I've joined the bandwagon, i've added some desk underglow RGB leds. Their $39 Lennovo branded ones from JB Hifi.
    i'm actually really impressed, it works flawlessly, even with my Google Home voice control.

    Yeah and idles silently at 28C and load not so noisy at 72C. Much better idea than buying a replacement cooler for it, so long as you have 3 slot clearance. .

    Great idea with the conduit. At the moment I've done a cleanup just last year but that's just sticking cables to the back board of my desk. Might see what Bunnings has as this looks like a good way to keep everything together :thumbup:

    Well since I couldn't get the CPU I wanted to match my 3080, sold the 3080. Instead upgraded from a 4670K to a 4790K and 8GB 1600Mhz ram to 16GB 2400Mhz. Might also have a muck about with some watercooling again. Should be good for another 2 years.

    Well, budgetwise that might have been the right way, you probably even made a few extra $$. But what vid card are you now using?

    System is a bit hotter since installation of the 3080. Was running with the window off for a while and card never got above 67C, but with window back on it peaks around 73-74C and fans ramp up more. This is running on the perf bios rather than quiet.

    Removing the front panel dropped temps back down closer to what they were. Turns out the foam filter on the front of the Fractal Design Meshify C is actually pretty restrictive, so out it came and temps are back down a bit. Means I'll be dusting a bit more but I have one of these which makes the job pretty easy.

    Also played around with system fan profiles in BIOS and tried out Argus Monitor, as I had the fans tuned to be basically inaudible.

    So the new case and psu came in last weekend and decided to swap everything over to the case. This weekend I'll hopefully be able to get the water cooling loop sorted given i can get the last few items come payday on Friday.

    Nice. Now you just need to coordinate the RGB fans across the system. :D

    Cheers. The pic was the first boot up once i got everything switched over to make sure everything was all good. I currently have the fans sync together in and alternating config from the retro purple n blue.

    Where is the PSU, behind the motherboard?

    Yeah its the same as the normal 011 cases but the psu is at the top and and the hdd cage is on the bottom. So due to its size you're limited to a sfx/sfx-l psu size.
