What kind of fans do you have? I am looking for something like that, but can only find red led fans, not red blades.

Its so I can get USB 3.0 on the front of the case, that's where you route it.

Cable management looks like my first time around too, Next time you re-do it you will make it look alot more tidy im sure. For the record the bottom looks pretty good, now just to find a way to hide those fan cables. In time, in time.

Good first build

Thanks for the positive comment but what more could I have done cable management wise? I took plenty of time doing it as I know its fairly important.

Hey, sorry for coming across as an ass earlier. I built my first PC two years ago and it looked pretty bad, so I shouldn't criticize. I guess I tend to judge based on what opinions I've formed since then. Sorry again, and congrats on the build!

Bundle cables together, fit them through the most hidden hole you can. Also, NZXT sells some nice looking sleeved cable extensions, the 24-pin and 8-pin in particular, that would look nice and allow you to route those cables behind the motherboard tray. Also, sleeving in general makes the visible cables look better and if you do black it can help them be less noticeable. If you stick around here long enough you'll probably see a lot of examples.

I have been eyeballing some Rosewill high speed fans that have red blades. You can find them on Newegg. The main reason I like these particular ones is that they include grills and slot-mounted speed controls. These on the rad of this build look a lot like them, but I don't see a grill. The grills may have been left off of course.

Edit to add : This 120 and a matching 80 mm are the Rosewills I am talking about. Sure looks like the fan in this build- same blade count- etc.

You did good to where your airflow will be great. The next step is just for the eyes a little bit. Unfortunately I see that board coverered (mostly) a few of those useful side cable management cutouts.

Just think outside the box, Like those cables on the top left, perhaps run in that back corner and out that very top tiny cutout, ect.

Everyones just knitpicking now don't mind them really
