    Yeah, it's actually nice and snug.

    Here's a better pic of how I mounted it.

    It looks so much nicer than the Swifty rad box, and I really like the fact that you can adjust the space between the case and radiator. Neato.

    Got the HTPC/Cruncher up for the time being. MY 2x2GB DDR2 was dead, only 1 stick worked so I put in a RMA request to corsair so hopefully they will ship on monday. Right now im stuck with a single stick of 512MB DDR2 533 :(. It does youtube 1080P ok but stutters alittle. I have XBMC installed and it plays all my movies perfect!

    So this is what it looks like as of now. My wife and sister are watching "the help" off it as we speak

    Hahaha, I see the little older-generation logitech wireless receiver hanging out there... I know how you feel, I'm always having trouble with keyboard reception when I sit a little way back. The new gen receivers are flawless though. (I have one for my mouse)

    Yea if the battery gets a little weak then you have to have it closer to the front. It works well with new battery though.

    Started it crunching last night so I will see how much PPD I will be getting soon

    Hey man, I used to have that exact same case, and struggled with cable management for quite some time. The key is more zip ties, and hide as MUCH behind the HDD and 5.25" bays as possible. Also, towards the end of having it the case, I took out the bottom HDD cage, that helped as well. Here are the best pics I have of the cable management.

    Well, the case was black with the same interior as yours when I bought it. The black front and sides are just glossy the way they came. But I painted the interior myself.

    As far as the PSU mess, perhaps get a modular PSU? Mine is modular so I only had the cables I need plugged in. Maybe if you took off the tubing and used a few zip ties.

    I have future plans for the case. I am saving it to build a system for my soon-to-be-wife. I am going to again repaint the interior a pearl white, and have purple LED's. As far as cables go, however, I am going to cut a hole in the mobo tray right in front of the PSU, and route the cables behind it. There is a lip between the mobo tray and the HDD/5.25 cages, and I am going to cut off a section of that lip as well, so as to make room for the cables, and still be able to close the other side of the case.

    Oh nice, I am always jealous of black insides it looks so slick.

    I might try changing things up with zip ties, I've already done that with other areas, its just from the PSU area there isnt anything to tie them too and fyi my psu is modular actually, its the 750w thermaltake evo

    AH, very nice. Well hey, I upgraded to a Lexa S (as well as some interal upgrades) and it has a similar sleek and sexy look as the apollo, but much better cable management, cooling, and a black interior. =)

    I did a little custom tie wrap mode in the middle to improve airflow a bit with a 120mm fan. :)
