Hey guys,

I just finished my x99 build, sitting a little over the $6,000 mark, and I'm looking for final things to add to this machine to make it "complete".

Specs list: pcpartpicker.com/p/t6szpg

Warning: Spoiler!



I have a single imgur album documenting the assembly and changes over time: imgur.com/a/ZaN8M

Warning: Spoiler!


What I'm really looking for are things that can still be improved upon.
Any criticism would be greatly appreciated by all!


Thanks in advance!

I still see bare wire bottom right hand side of the case, I believe it is lighting cable.

It is. There truly does not exist a way to fix this without cutting the wire.
My other option would be to tug it super close to the crease and hope people don't look at it at an insane angle..

maybe i could flip the light and run wires up top? =/

It's a 2 cable 12V connection going into a 4 pin molex
let me guess
you want me to pull the cables, route them, and plug it back in, right? :P

was just curious to see if there is a way to sleeve it still without cutting. A lot of the to wire cables are small enough you can still slip a sleeve over or sometimes they have extension cables as well. What brand is the lighting btw

they're the logisys LED lights

Logisys White 12" LED Sunlight Stick (ML12WH)

Logisys 16" Corner LED Light Bar - 12V - White (LCX16WT)

and i suppose i could sleeve it.... but is it really visible enough to merit sleeving?

point being, the bottom fan mount has a SOLID WALL of metal and cannot route things beneath it (huge design flaw, btw, forces fan cables up)

Ok so I need a bottle of nitro, a stick of Dynamite, a roll of duct tape and ... Oh yeah! a squirrel
