Hey, not bad regg. A bit messy, you should try to move the cables a bit, and I've never liked the Thermaltake Checkerboard motif on their cases. The red is 'interesting' with the blue lights... ;) I guess taste differs? But other than that good job dude. Guess you like Thermaltake! :D Any GPU overclocking with the Silencer??

The 9800 is running@411/370, and unfortunatly there is really not much you can do with those damn cables, I should have gotten some shorter ones, that could help a little. there would have been 2 more if the Sata drive was in there too!!! regg187

My friend has a Thermaltake Xaser too and the fan wires end up everywhere! What you could do is get a sleeving kit and with the thin sleeves sleeve the fan wires. Then tie all those SATA, IDE, and power cables together with cable ties or something and try to push them to the back of the case. That usually makes it look better. ;) Even if the wires are all over the place but they are the same colour, it doesn't look bad... :D

I voted 9/10 because:

Love the front of the case and the window, the blue LED fans also get my thumbs up. A bit more tidiness wouldn't go a miss though.
