    My previous case was named 0 kelvin 3.3

    any time i do a significant upgrade (going i7 is a big upgrade) the number changes since ram, mobo, proc, and vga changed i think 4.0 is sufficient.

    My Painting log was here.

    I painted the Cooler master Stacker 832 mesh red in theme of ATI.

    My build will be of the following as of now (unless i change my mind :D )

    Going to sleeve a crap load of cables, i just dont know what to buy.

    So I am going to do a bit more tidying up on my cable and need to know what i need to get.

    i have a power sata cable , a molex connector cable, and then various 2 wires power cables. Lots of fans.

    Im also going to be doing the cable from the power, Reset, and USB cables coming from the head unit of my case. So which do i need?

    I was thinking either bunch up all the cables from the head unit or do them separately.. im not sure yet.

    I plan on doing a few more case mods and making a few more holes to help hide cables and organize them so they dont look like a jumbled up mess

    I've actually never cable sleeve'd before so I don't have much advice in that area. As for making holes, definitely do that if your able to. No matter the case, making holes will give you many cable management options. But why am I even saying this, you know this already, your cable management jobs are usually insanely clean!
