    you read my guide :). Yeah... thats quite good. Thermaltake cases arent that good for cable management though.... Rather than hiding cables behind 3 inch bays, try under the motheboard, keep the cables as flat as possible as well...

    In terms of practicality its good but looks wouldnt be good. My rule; stay away from TT unless you want to bust out the dremel or get the Armor/Kandalf.

    Heres the guide:

    Not a bad job. I Seriously need to take a look at your guide TK. Is it stickied somewhere? Ill probably have to print it out and work on my system. MY PSU is on the bottom of the case though, thats where the Nine-Hundred has them. While its nice, it kind of hinders me moving my cables out of the way of the side case, side window and the side fan.

    If you have 5HDs , 2DVDRWs , 1FDD , 6 Extra USBs , 2 Extra FireWires no matter how good your cable management is the entire tower gets warm.
    In this case i see only 1 HD , 1 FDD and 1 DVDRW......Youre lucky :)
