Your cable managment looks perfect.
Can you share your temperatures?
Thanks man, with some planning and patients it’s not that hard to make it clean!

as for temps I haven’t played around with it too much but so far idle GPU:35c/CPU:45c and while playing AC:Valhalla GPU:69-70c/CPU:60-61c

Very clean build, I have personally ordered PSlate Customs unsleeved cables for the Meshlicious, since those are thinner and much more flexible than traditional braided ones, such as yours. They can be easily routed behind the motherboard, which makes for a very clean build overall.

Interesting to see that you have put the AIO fans on the inside and as exhaust, rather than on the outside. Kinda looses their RGB function as they aren't that visible from the front.

I'm also going for that PSU orientation, with the TG panel. How do you think it will do? Being so close to the panel itself. I'm aware that you can flip the PSU bracket and hence have the PSU slightly floating and getting a bit room between it and the panel itself.

Here are some pics of the Meshlicious in my setup, don't mind temp hdmi cable running from my monitor to my pc, waiting on an adaptor.

I will admit the sleeved cables that come with the SF750 are slightly stiff but I had zero issues routing my PSU cables behind the motherboard, I would of even ran my 24pin behind the motherboard but then it would leave no way of hiding the two front I/O USB Cables.

Seeing how there is no exhaust in this case if you set the front fans as intake, I decided to listen to the information I seen in reviews and set them as exhaust and I'm very happy with the results and tbh the way i have my computer I see the RGB fans more as exhaust (refer to pics above).

PSU is perfectly fine at the setting farthest away from the window, I haven't even seen the fan turn on since I put it together.

How's that PSU doing so close to the TG panel and is that the B550-I Strix motherboard? How does the VRM fan do? Does it spin up and if so, is it annoying or so?...

I rarely ever see the PSU fan turn on , and I’ve never noticed the vrm fan come on, and correct b550-I Strix

Alright, now that's interesting. Especially considering you're rocking an 5900X and the VRM hasn't spun up yet. Have you gamed or benchmarked anything? Tried pushing that CPU somewhat to it's limit to try and load the VRMs some and hence see if the fan spins up?...

I'm wondering potentially if my 3080 OC Strix is more power hungry than your 6800 XT is and hence might actually start the PSU fan haha? :p

IIRC the SF750 has a load-specific trigger of 300W for the fans to actually spin, so definitely has to be a GPU workload (gaming) as a single 5900X won't be pushing anywhere close to that.

On the other hand, VRM should be temp-controlled (based on my experience with the C8I and Strix 570-I), and dependent on the control in BIOS it might not even spin until temp reaches 60C

Interesting, atleast now I know why my SF750 never spun up... Started thinking it was faulty or dead haha! 😅

Okay, well then the next question is how fast does it spin whenever it does start to? Is it 500rpm or like 6000rpm? Seeing as how loud it will get.

I don't do benchmarking, I mainly use my PC for gaming, the only game I've seen that makes the PSU fan come on is when i was playing Gears4 Campaign.

as far as the my 5900x it usually sits around 60c while gaming, and both my m.2 sdds sit around 41c while gaming, so its not a hot box in this case. I will monitor my mobo temps later today while gaming and see how warm everything gets

Hey man im not exactly sure which one of the temperature readings are the VRMs, i have Mobo Temp, Chipset, and in HW Monitor i have an addition 8 more temp readings ?

Make sure you have the latest stable BIOS, if it's still not showing in BIOS/hwinfo64, then it's a "feature" as below



Back when I was using the X570-I Strix, I didn't have VRM temps either, but now with the C8I, I have it.

Yaa just updated my bios to the latest, and checked both bios and HWmonitor and still nothing in regards to VRM temps. oh well lol

If I have time this weekend I think I’m going to work on some small improvements to cable management.. I’m going to try and hide the front panel I/O under the mobo tray with stock standoffs.
