    That part isn't such a big deal when my case side is on. I can only see the mobo tray area. The HDD bays aren't visible.

    I'm not sure if it can get any better than that though, unless you make some holes so that you see less of the wires. Maybe some sleeved extensions from NZXT, they are super cheap.

    This is what it looks like with the case side on.

    I'm happy with the look for now, need to get that tape I was talking about. :laugh:

    As for the NZXT sleeved cable extensions, I have thought about it before, but I think I'm fine as is.

    Maybe... I'll think about it.

    I'm not going to paint it. I'm going to get Carbon fiber tape and use that. Since it doesn't chip. (Plus it'll look a lot cooler.)

    Right Here; Right Now!

    Hi all,
    This is it...FedEx just left at 10:30 am :respect::respect:and now I am going to do an all day/night until this thing is done. I made a sig to tell what's in it; but after seeing all the beautiful rigs all y'all have done and are doing and re-doing the CM is going to be a challenge to make it even half right. :banghead: I'll be back in the morning one way or the other.
    Jakeman97 :toast:
    [​IMG]
    I've been at this thing all day and all night and this is the result. Mobo posted right out of the box without a glitch, thank you Gigabyte:respect::respect:
    Everything seem to fit o.k. and the case was quite roomy to work in. Routing all the wires through the holes was fairly easy thanks to modular PSU. Thanks to 'paulieg' @ TPU for the great deal on the Corsair.:rockout:
    [​IMG]
    Then came the dreaded CM part. When I finally looked at the bundle of wires coming out of the top of the case I thought 'holy crap':twitch:looked in the manual and yup....NO HELP!:wtf:Calmed down and and looked at the panel and sorted everything out.
    [​IMG]
    Started in hooking everthing up, shortening here and there, cable ties everywhere. This is my first attempt at CM and I'm pretty well satisfied with it. The side cover went on easily with no lumps 'n bumps.
    I must have drank at least a gallon of coffee doing this, 'cause now I look like this!
    [​IMG]
    numerous time outs to the little 'room out back' were annoying......:roll:
    [​IMG]
    Must have done something right 'cause Vista installed without a hitch. Thanks to 'logan' @tPU for trading that Retail copy of Vista Ultimate. No more OEM software for me. I'm so glad I learned how to slipstream SP1 before I did the install. Just finished installing SP2 and my eyes are burning and going to pop right out of my head. :eek:
    [​IMG]
    The final result...I'm just going to run it for a few days before I do anything to it. Strictly in a stock configuration. :D

    I was thinking that myself. To each their own.

    Fantastic looking setup, I'm sure you'll have a great day.:toast: I'm jealous.
