    if you order the sleeve kit you have enough for a whole system imo, but do yourself a favor and order some accent color for you theme, maybe some red og blue or whatever you want, it really spices things up :toast:

    I never understood sleeving each individual sleeve. I like how my Corsair is, all wires in one sleeve. Looks much better IMO. It's your build though, and I must say I still love it :D.

    I want to get into sleeving the extensions. I got the 24pin already, just need to add some red to it, and then I need to get the PCI-E ones and some shorter SATA Cables. The SATA cables will be sleeved too, I have the sleeve. I just need to get the shorter cables.

    Yeah it is looking good. The crazy mess of wires on the backside of mine is whats really keeping me from finishing so I really noticed the last above pic. Starting to wish I had a modular PSU.

    It really helps sooo much having a modular PSU. I think Seasonic has some that are "FULLY' modular, including the 24pin...

    Can I ask where you bought that thing? I went to a three video card setup and they need some more cooling. I know that's an old post but I'm nervous and that looks like a great way to pump some more air into trifire.

    Nice find and thank you. That looks like another very nice way to cool your cards.

    Got CM's side window panel and some new tubing and fans and other odds and ends over the last few months. So mine too is pretty much finally "done" now too-just in time for BF3 wooo-and I'm pretty happy with it. Will take some pics soon.

    Yeah my rear looks nothing like yours but I got the panel on easily enough which is what really counts. Not too many visible cables from the business side and all mostly black anyway (except for the glaring, ugly white and colored stripes of the FP connections...really nice job on yours. Need to at least sleeve in a single black but out of shrink at present).

    The project got postponed, but I was on the right track. I just need to take care of my priorities first. Then I can resume. :)

    Yeah I've had this case for like two years and just got everything together and hooked up for the first time lol.

    The shiny plastic top drive bay cover was still in it's protective covering until last week. :)
