    ahh ok, well behind the motherboard then. leaving it exposed and sleeved didn't look bad either but I like the behind the motherboard look.

    He's wanting to hide the Power cables of the Video Card. I shot him one idea. To see i he can wire it behind the tubing that goes from the top rad to the top of the pump. It would hide behind that, then go straight to the card..

    Yeah, that was the first thing I said.. It's a Modular PSU, so that would be easy to do, and just grab some cable holders from Home Depot or those types of places.

    Yeah, but he only has 18".. Unless he re-wires it. So, it was a trial thing to do.

    That 285 should have an opening on the very back (by back I mean right around the corner from the power plugs). There should be two recessed areas that have a 'pillar' between them. You can use this pillar to zip tie the wiring tight against the back of the fan housing.

    Did you sleeve that cable yourself? Looks nice!

    you mean like these http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/freaksavior/Core i7 build/_MG_0027.jpg ?
    and yes sleeved it myself :D

    I considered going with the 4870x2, also the gtx295. I may go SLI with another gtx285 later but not now.

    This case is really nice and has a decent amount of room you just have to plan it out.

    You my friend suck

    :) i want pictures of that

    Did anyone watch the video? because the computer wont come on

    push on everything that inserts like video, ram, etc and try again. maybe they are not in all the way. did you try without the video as well? what bout the 24 pin psu cable and 8 pin? in all the way?
