    Did you cut holes for your wires in your mobo tray? This makes me want to rewire mine again... I think I might do that when I get my new cooling parts tomorrow. Damn DFI for needing so many power connections.

    Someone who's going to find NewTekie1 and teach hi
    Tonite, once I finalize (max-out) my memory timing chain tightenings here?

    This is going to be a project for myself as well!

    I am going to "bite off your style" there sladesurfer, & reverse my disks so the SATA cables are less obtrusive, and run my power cables around the BACK of the drive cages... and, if possible, hide my DvD EIDE & Floppy disk cable as well (round types on both) as you have.

    (Got the ideas from your photos, & imo, as well done as it gets)

    I think I can do this...

    * As is, my system is FAR neater than others I had done in the past (I have posted comparison photos, almost night & day) because of what I have gained here the past 3 months now (almost that long).

    It may seem like common-sense on how to make a case interior neater, but you do hit walls in cable lengths, places to run them thru or hide them in, etc.!

    (Plus, imo & experience @ least? Today's case designs are FAR more "intelligent" too as well, & lend themselves to neater interiors, better cooling, & materials used etc.)

    BUT, I was never much good @ it... learning as I go though, via examples provided to me here!

    APK

    P.S.=> I'll post photos in here once I am done!

    (I got a new LED light rear exhaust topmost case fan too)

    So I am NEAR to the point where I would put a photo into the case galleries as an entry there from myself!

    However, the standards here are high, so this needs doing on the lit up fan, some fan grills on my CPU & that rear LED fan, & 2 cathode lights (@ top & bottom of case) PLUS, hiding cables to-the-max as well...

    Good inspiration this one! apk

    Cable ties, If you can hide them behind your mobo tray hide them..... Tape stuff with elctrical tape in hidden areas.... modetly hiding them behind alot of objects... Ive found to hide them behind my mobo tray, and cd bays..

    It's always about planning when putting all the parts together. Just look at your case and see if you can wire all the cables in your head. Visualize;)

    hey there

    heres a pic of my main system.
    wires are fairly neat inside, but I have so many pipes it looks like a mess from this angle. specs are in sig
    [​IMG]

    heres my newly build secondary system, with my old 2500 unlocked barton (remember those days?) NF7-S, gig of corsiar, and a new x850 pro, unsuccesfull at unlocking the last 4 pipes, but it does run 24/7 stable at 575/575.
    agggg i know its a stock heatsink, but hey, it runs at 12x200mhz completely prime stable for days, though you really dont wnat to know how hot it is :twitch:
    [​IMG]

    complete specs on 2nd system
    XP 2500 @ 12x200 = 2.2ghz 1.85vcore
    Abit NF7-S V2.0
    Corsair 1024 MB PC 3200 (2x 256 + 1x 512 in dual channel) 2-3-3-5
    BBA X850 Pro flashed to XT, though still 12 pipes, @ 575/575
    Antec Neo HE 430 PSU
    Zalamn heatsink thingy I originally bought for my 6800, but then went WC'ing so now its on my x850. I cant rember the model # though
    Plextor DVD RAM drive
    Hitachi 120 gig SATA HDD

    Both pics taken with Nikon D70S in manual mode, f/18, 1/20th second shutter, pop up flash (hence the crappyness of the lighting)

    Not sure HOW tidy those pics in my sig are(later pics should be with Seasonic PSU which has thinner cabling then the Tagan I started with) but I try my best in the tight space I have.

    @sladesurfer: How do YOU like your Asetek Xternal unit?(your the only other user I have seen with one)
    Im "okay" with it. I have replaced all the Addas with SilenX fans but it still annoys me the way they resonate against the Rad no matter what I try. Temp wise I have no complaints.
