Every day this week, I have and will continue to come home, take off the cable side glass and cover and doing cable management as well as moving location of stuff. I have already deleted 16 RGB extensions and 12 PWM extensions. I may finally be happy with the cable management by the end of this week.

After Christmas, I am going from black chrome brass pipe and ordering chrome and redoing both loops. I need to address the mounting of my pumps some and straighten/level out the piping a little more. This is a never ending build.

Last weekend I delidded my 7900X. I was running 4.6Ghz Prime 95 at 95C. After the delid, I dropped to 76C. I am now at 4.7, prime 95 at 81C. I have booted 4.8, 4.9, even 5.0. I cannot even get 4.8 Ghz to pass prime. Keeps locking up, 84C. I got aggravated after so many reboots. I'll try again after I'm done with everything else.

I just got my case in yesterday, tried to tackle the beast. I have a few questions. Does the front glass pan swivel, mine is connected by 1 corner and I can rotate it a full 360 degrees, not sure if this is the standard. How many RGB Extension cables are roughly needed for this build, I did not purchase any, and I feel like I may have under estimated their need.

yep you certainly need extensions bud.. both RGB and PWM... DevBiker does do a 1000d specific pack.. not sure what it contains and maybe he will jump in.

I needed to extend both cables on all 13 in mine

upon arrival... shock at size of box?.. when out of box was it.. MUCH bigger than you expected?

This is Scary because my case came unhinged and broken then. Damnit. I knew the case was big, but the box it came in was HUGE. Its taller than I thought it would be, but slimmer as far as width go.

So on the top part of the Front Glass Panel, it is screwed in in two spots? Can it be removed, maybe just one of the screws is missing.

I have managed to get rid of all rgb extensions and some pwm extensions. I had extensions everywhere. When I'm done this week I'll snap a picture. It will still be horrid.

Thats what it looks like. It isn't actually screws that hold the glass onto the case. It looks like some type of glue/adhesive.
