    Very nice! I should prolly clear my case out so I can mod some other fans in it for better air flow.

    Great job dude! The cable managment definately helps with air flow. Seen any temp drops? 2-3°C

    Looks much better. Cable management has always been an area I wish I was better at.

    I am about to swap all my junkie parts to a case I am working on but I am still not sure of the best way to hide the power to the hard drives. It seems they always end up bunched up in the area close to the back of the drives. I am considering cutting and soldering the wires to the proper lengths but I am not sure this will eliminate the mass of wires in that area.

    Very nice.:)

    I like my CM 690 case, but since its big and the PSU mount is at the bottom the cabling can be horrid.

    Resurrection of old threads may be discouraged, but that one should be fine, it's certainly a continuable topic. I'm surprised it died to start with

    Looking good odameyer, It looked like a bowl of spaghetti before you cleaned it up. Probly has heaps better airflow now also.
