    i would agree, sleeve those cables or try ur best to tie ur cables so u can hide them, but cool comp, and yeah an after market cooler would be great, not sure why u need 2 80mm fans, imo that just creates alot of noise, if ur trying to go for quietness, but yeah sleeve ur cables and add soem lights that would be cool

    2x 80mm fans at the rear, how about some intake fans as well? If you are going for something like that, like add then at the front as well, but you will have to remove the front panel first.
    Cases these days usually have intakes at the front (Unless they are the ultra crap ones which cant hold a light, generic PSU, let alone some heavy top tier ones), Even if the case doesnt seem to have any, there will be a vent at the bottom of the front panel, slipstreamed into it. Since cool air does not rise, it is not a problem.

    I give your case 7/10, The rear fans are tasteless, they don't fit in your machine's color scheme. The PSU needs more sleeves, if you want to sleeve the cables, at least do it to all of them. I have to comment, its nearly pointless having that much suction when there is a lack of intakes. I think the stock cooler is seriously bottlenecking the cooling capacity of the 80mm fans.

    (Dammit Ive got a noisy PSU, my system fans are barely audible when I test it on my iGreen

    I actually do have a intake fan, the reason you cant see it is because its hidden behind the hdd and it is black. It is a 80mm sucking air in(there is only one slot for a fan.) Yes I will try t hide the cables a little bit more. thanks for your comments

    need some cable management, and maybe a paint job would look nice ... u've seen my case, urs could look identical if u wanted, happy modding!
