    Got bored and wanted to mock it up. I still plan to add the chipset block and get the rest of the loop in the case, but this is fine for now;)

    I have a gold flexy one, just threw this one on to help with spacing. If you have a black one I'd gladly install it;)

    and yes Crys1s Gamer did a very quality job on that 24-pin for me, well worth the price IMHO:D

    God, I need a new chair. Been looking for the right one, but I don't want to spend over $250.

    I love the deal staples offers. If you have one local, go plant ur bum in the chairs.

    I got a nice chair last month, $200 and leather;) Plus they offer an unconditional warranty...for like $25 you can call a number is anything goes wrong in like 2 to 3 years. SO say the strut goes bad, or the chair begins to annoy you with squeeking, just call em up, they send a giftcard for the amount spent, less the waranty, and you go get a new chair. Plus you get to keep the old one and pass it on to someone with a worse chair than yours.

    I love my chair. Got it for free from a friend who got a $400 one that's constantly falling apart. Mine to this day only has wear and tear from my old desk, which some tape fixed in a jiffy. :D

    My cable management is always an improvement, but the end result is never that good, I'm blaming the DVD drive, I really need to get a SATA one. Man my PC was all over the place, both side panels were kept off, bottom front and the rear fans were off and the CPU fan was off, and still is. Later I might add it back and am going to put my cathodes back in. I can't wait to build a new rig later in the year.

    Not really :p

    Yeah, I've seen sleeved IDE cables but I'm just gonna get a SATA drive as this drive acts dodgy sometimes.

    What, the mobo or the cable going out the back? I figured since the wires at the back don't matter I'd just put it there :p

    I mean the placement on the motherboard is awkward since it's impossible to hide the cable this way. I like my 24-pins on the right side of the board.

    My last mobo was like that too. I think it's just older and cheaper mobos. It's also a pain in the ass because the CPU fan plug is between the 24-pin and video card so I have to take the video card out to plug it back in.

    I use an IDE DVD ROM drive to, but for me i have it tucked in the back of the case pretty good so you can't see it very much.

    I personally don't see any point in getting my drive upgraded though, as i don't use it a whole lot(use steam for most of my games),and the speed doesn't bother me when i do use it.

    The cheapest a SATA drive is €25.75. I'm gonna need a new drive for my new build anyway, my current one is too long and it would mean less parts to take from the secondary rig. Not too expensive but I'm not gonna pick one up until I'm buying something else.
