Valkyrie needs Cable Managemnt, Badly!


Welcome, homie.  Possible to tuck those wires behind the mobo?  Not just for looks, it will help with the airflow as well.

18GB Corsair Dominator RAM

Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal!ty Champion Series SC

I know but the cable lengths are very short for the 24-pin mobo and 4-pin cpu cables so they could'nt be routed to the back of the motherboard. I'll try to do that as soon as I can get a better psu. Valkyrie sounds like a good name for my rig...

Welcome to OCC!! I think you're the first Pakistani member I've seen (at least, the first who lists that they are), and that's awesome. It's cool when more international users join up!
