Camera trickery. It’s all in the exposure settings. In real life, the brightness comes across as somewhere in the middle of those two.
Glad I could help!
Slightly late reply, but I was finally able to take this photo for you: https://i.imgur.com/fBNWFb4.jpg
There is a bit of space under the card's and above the next PCIe slot. I think you can gauge the distance by the two black closed slot covers on the back of the case. If you want a more precise measurement, let me know and I'd be happy to bust out the measuring tape for you.
Most of the visible cables are visible in my photo album above. The back of the case is somewhat a mess, but that was one of the allures of this case to me - I can hide the rat's nest in the second chamber specifically designated for the cables (and drives and PSU)! My rat's nest is not that bad but not the neatest either. I dunno if you'll be able to see anything useful in there if I took a picture. You can get a glimpse in one of my photos above.
The RGB version of the case comes with two fans and some Corsair hardware to connect more RGB Corsair fans to (up to 6 I think). This connects to the mobo using one internal USB header. I’m guessing Corsair light strips will connect to the same ports.
The fans come with a second cable for the actual spinning bit. This mobo was a bit low on fan headers. It supports 3x case fans and 1x CPU cooler. I got a cheap PWM fan hub at a later point to make my fourth fan operational, so keep that in mind. I think I ended up connecting the hub to one of the mobo fan headers and plugging in all four fans into it.
It was a great build for Christmas time, I guess. ;)
I found my configurator link for another commenter. This Gigabyte 2070 needs a PCI-e 6-pin and a PCI-e 8-pin cable.
There is a caveat though.
You have to make sure the PSU you’re buying has enough PCI-e ports. I first bought an RM550x, which would have been enough to power the GPU, but it didn’t come with enough ports for the cables I bought. The PSU came with a branched cable (in black of course!) that could have powered the GPU with no problems. However, CableMod doesn’t seem to do such branched cables, unfortunately. The “bridged” cable you see on my list has two inputs and two outputs. And of course, you can buy two separate cables instead.
Aha! I was able to find the configuration in my email history.
Lengths of PSU cables? Or are you asking for dimensions of the case for GPU tolerances and stuff?
It defaulted to white when installed. I used Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion to switch it to red so it matched.
I was able to bump it up, just confirmed using Task Manager. My MSI board has a pretty obvious setting for it. I've never used ASRock, so can't comment there. :c
How do I check who the RAM manufacturer is? Are these Corsair sticks known to be one of those?
Is this an ad? I already have very expensive custom cables that make my build pop.
Those are not bad either, though.
Shhh, we don't speak about cable management.
They are the brighter red option that CableMod offers on ModMesh, but not on ModFlex.
I was a bit iffy about spending $150 on fully custom cables (Pro upgrade included), but all that doubt dissolved when I saw them. They are gorgeous! If you're going for looks (and don't mind spending the $$$), I cannot recommend them enough!
Wow, that's a high compliment. Thanks!
