I think the first thing you need to worry about is the major dust build up in your system in that second pic it looks like it's about to become a sentient dust bunny :D think about fan filters they save a shitload of cleaning :D

also you do realize your killing you PSU quicker by running all that on it
an OC'd CPU and GPU + all those HDD's = Minimum PSU Wattage: 537 W
The PSU has been going strong now for 2+ years. I would like to get a new one, but i'm saving for an i5. The added voltage for the overclock isn't that high, my calcs were a fair bit lower than 537 W.
As for the dust... tell me about it, i hat just wiped the whole case clean 2 weeks prior to that pic, it builds up so damn fast. I can;t get hold of any filters without getting them imported from the US which is just too expensive. I tried using a pair of the wife's tights, but the dust built up so quickly on them that the fans had blown them off after a week.

If you can find a way to get a piece of aluminum, then you can bend it into shape and cover the PSU area. Like it can go in front of the PSU then along the mobo tray towards the HDD cage. Then you can route the wires behind it neatly zip tied together or something and they won't be seeing. If you can do it nicely, it'll look good.

As far as your sleeving, it didn't come out bad bro, sleeving takes a lot of practice dude.
Thanks. I'm not sure where i can get a piece of thin aluminium to do that, but i'll keep my eye out. I'm not sure i could do it tho, as i have a fan down there that takes up a lot of the floor of the case. I think it'd look much better if i sprayed the inside black, but i don;t have any real space to spray paint as i live in an apartment and it'd be a full day project. Maybe when i upgrade i will wash the whole thing out and take it outside somewhere to spray.

I have done some cable sleeving on my rig. I'm not to sure about the results though :(

I really want to make it a little neater. The ATX cable, i'm going to route behind the mobo tray after i finish sleeving an extender, but beyond that i am not sure what to do. I think that the GPU power cables look kinda messy from where they come out behind the mobo tray. Would cable ties help with this? I only have a couple of spare black ones so i don;t wanna use them all up if it won't help.

There are places online, I just can't remember or come across it now. As far as painting, yeah the black interior just makes the case look better automatically IMO.

Check out this THREAD. The first post has tons of useful links and in there you should find a store that sells aluminum.

It's blowing down so that it doesn't suck up dust. i have 1x200mm intake and 2x120mm intake and the fan on the bottom is real slow so it shouldn't effect airflow too much.

Thanks, the problem for me is getting the stuff imported from the US. Most companies quote ridiculous shipping prices. I was looking at getting a bit of sleeving imported from the US the other day and the quote for the shipping was $40!

Can you think of any way to tidy the semi-messy looking gpu power cable from where it comes out from behind the mobo tray?

yep dust is the reason
if you wanna make it as intake dont forget to use dust filter
air from bottom flows direct to vga card but the effect is it may suck dust more

yeah tights are ok for short term use but as you've found out they fill up rather quick

some proper micro mesh filters would be better and you want to stick them under a fan so they get dust sucked into them not blown into that way the fan stays clean aswell

as for cable ties use the black/clear ones where they can be seen use any other colour everywhere else

Does anyone have any good homemade solutions for zip tie anchors like these? It's pretty weird that my 700D doesn't have any behind the motherboard tray, which makes things a real pain. Everything is already in there, so I don't want to drill any holes.

I often have one cord that is really tight and I often use that as a anchor and base everything off that.

Yup, I have some of that going on, too, but it's a big area back there, with a lot going on. I have all my fan cables and such behind the drive bays, the all the gpu and 24/8 pin jazz on the other side of the case, all of which have extensions on them. It's a real goat rope. It's a 3 handed job getting the cover back on.

yeah with my sleeved extensions it makes the entire side a huge mess. I have the fan adapters in the front bezel of my case, you know how you can have fans mounted on the outer side of the case, the hole they have for you to bring the cables through I have the adapters and a molex in there.. my psu already has some awesome sleeving and with the HDD rack you can't even see the cable.

That FP_Audio cable you removed would have been a bit of a pain to hide and keep it looking as tidy as it did in the final result.

About the only way to make that look good is to sleeve it nicely because I personally can't think of a way to hide that. :laugh:

maybe extend the cable and hide it behind the mobo tray or behind the HDD cage, or just remove it all together it's not really needed if you've headphones or speakers plugged in the beep sound will come out of those well atleast it does on my mobo

DOH never mind thought we were talking about the little piezo speaker

although that FP audio cable could quite easily have been hidden if

taken behind the mobo tray and out under the PSU bracket then behind the mobo and back out just above the video card to plug it in

True.
I see his case has a gap near the PCI back plates which the cable could possibly run through if there is enough length.
Other wise sleeve it as mentioned, then have to tied with the P4 power cable I guess.

None the less, I don't use FP Audio either.
I don't think many builders set up their rigs with FP Audio as most PC speakers come with a a head phone jack.

True.
I see his case has a gap near the PCI back plates which the cable could possibly run through if there is enough length.
Other wise sleeve it as mentioned, then have to tied with the P4 power cable I guess.

None the less, I don't use FP Audio either.
I don't think many builders set up their rigs with FP Audio as most PC speakers come with a a head phone jack.
That's the exact reason why I don't use mine. :)

Most speakers give you a headphone jack, but not a microphone jack, which is why I would use FP audio.
Fortunately, my keyboard allows me to plug in my headset there :)

Ah, good observation. I don't use a microphone so it's all good.
