    TJ07 or a nice Lian Li counterpart. If you prefer steel over aluminum get the Corsair sneeky has, it's one hell of a sexy case.

    Oh, I forgot to mention I'm gonna take a crack at water cooling! I've seen so many gorgeous builds with the TJ07 that I drool over. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Got my V8 installed and everything going. Fairly smooth process overall, was seeing idle temps of 40 to 43 C and load of around 55, now dropped down to 38 idle and 48 under 100% load. I'm sad to report not everything made it out unscathed....2 of the 4 cables on the LCD Poster snapped...WHY did Asus have to use cables that seem to be made out of 1 strand of copper!! It's not like I was yanking at em either. Just a gentle tug.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I little bit of thought and creativity go a real long way, when the case is already set up with a few nooks and crannies. I've just learned over the years how and what to hide;)

    Has a lot to do with the case as I mentioned. The front I/O wiring needs to be long. A few holes to expose what has to be shown. A ton of zip-ties.

    I just hide behind the things that block the view. In my 900 it took adding holes and really cramming things behind the tray. Good learning experience, glad I dont still have it;)

    Got into a X-clio 1000. IT was huge and one of the first cases that had really long front I/O wires. First time on that build with running sata wires and front I/O under the motherboards to the bottom. I've done this ever since when possible (length allowing).

    After that I stated getting spoiled...Cosmos, Raven, Lian Li, and lastly the Corsair. Honestly I would also rank said cases in that order with the cosmos being the toughest to manage.

    I always just try to follow the structure of the chassis to hide things behind as it bridges the gap from drive racks to the motherboard connections. Just try to leave as little exposed as you would need to unplug for a mobo swap (not saying your board will poop out, but think upgrades). With the ties you can make anything happen behind the scenes. Look at the 800D, it isnt pretty behind the mobo, but who is ever gonna see it.

    IF you have the loot to spend there are chassis on the market that cater to every need you could ever want. Some get what they need a little cheaper and preform magic with uber l33t mod skillz. I dont have the time, I like the chassis that has it all out of the box, or by very slight easy mods to make happen.

    THanks for sharing peet :toast:

    One case I just worked with few days ago and I must say I absolutely loved it, is the Thermal Take Element S. Cable management is awesome, and although I didn't try to hard, I did a great job. When I create my log for the watercooled version of that case, I will be doing some sheathing of the PSU and then that case will truly show its magic with the cable management. I ain't no big time modder, so I try to also get something that offers a completely package out of the box :D
