Any other flaws with this build that need pointing out? It's only human nature to focus on these things. I do it with other peoples builds

I mean, I have a freakin trackball for christ sake! Shame on me!
Nah. I like the build. Trackball is your own personal preference

In the case you linked it's mostly due to crap 24 pin connectors on the evga boards. Poor connection between the connectors causes resistance, which causes heat, which causes a melted connector. The mod you did is only placing a band aid over the problem, not fixing it.
It's a male connector coming off the motherboard. How can a male connector be crap? It's the female side on the PSU that would be the problem not having the necessary slide resistance to keep the connection tight to keep from heat buildup and making the female connector even weaker causing it expand more causing even more of a problem.

Really, it's your hardware to ruin, I don't really care. Not like your board has the risk of melting a 24 pin anyways.
And you wonder why most people think you come off like a jerk all of the time. You sour grape peoples rigs like I have never seen.

So then why is the problem pretty much only one specific evga board? The female connector can be out of spec just as easy as the male connector can. Mobo = Female connector, PSU = Male connector.

I don't wonder that actually... Pretty sure I did post that I liked his rig, which I do.

Anyways, no need to derail this thread any more. Post more rig pics.

BTW, I like grapes.

Motherboards always have the male connectors on all connections.

Yeah, my bad. Forgot they count the pins and not the pin housing.

"A connector that delivers power has female pins in a male housing, as pictured; a connector that receives power has male pins in a female housing."

It's not just Evga. If you search for "melted 24-pin ATX" you will find other people with the problem.

Here's just one: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1612505
