Perfect cable management resulting is a massive air flow increase is a myth. As long as you move the majority of cable out of the fan's way it's OK.

Not bad! My cable management can't hold a candle to that, and this is like my billionth build. Never gotten my finger on why I can't manage cables! I overcompensate by just turning the fans up a bit , but don't tell anyone!

ya I know main priority was too get it up and running, again everyone here has been A+. Just one final thing what do you think of the push pull config using the fan taken of the case and the one that came supplied with Hydro H60?

Have only read the first page so forgive me if these comments have already been made.

Cable management isn't great, but that comes with practice. Top left hole on the second pic is crying for you to put the fan cables through there.
Put the CPU power cable under the mobo tray or if it's too short run it under the GPU (make sure it's not to taught else it could pull the GPU out...
I'm pretty sure you could run the 24pin Mobo power under the mobo tray... not experienced with that case and you haven't taken the greatest of pics. (There's a thread on how to take good pics of your rig somewhere on this board EDIT: Thread is here)

Also flip the PSU over, you seem to have an inch of space under it so it should be fine. Will make the cables look a lot tidier.

That case is quite big for your needs so does make it seem a little messier than it actually is. Otherwise build looks good, just tidy up a little

Your push/pull setup should be fine. There's no harm using different fans for push/pull, and unless one fan is powerful enough to make the other redundant, you should get at least a slight performance gain.

Here we go. This is the photography thread I mentioned. Just for future reference

Im pretty sure you can route that nasty 24 pin cable and 8 pin (with extender) behind the motherboard tray i n that case..

Ya I gotta a big case just too future proof I also like that case. How do you mean flip the PSU over? Theres just not enough space. Also the 24 pin won't run the other side of the case. I wasn't even aware there was a photography thread. Brool story cro!

Right ho, excuse the shoddy artwork, it is 2am here after all.



The red is where the 24 pin mobo should come out, or I think the hole for the CPU back plate access (That massive one that cuts the motherboard tray almost in half) should extend just beyond the motherboard, in which case thread it through there.

SATA connectors should come through the red hole as well.

The yellow circles indicate the stand offs for the PSU. This means if you flip it so the fan is faced down it can still breathe. It'll also look a lot cleaner as the wires won't be coming across the PSU and you'll see less wires.

Once you've flipped the PSU have the wires leave through the green hole, as you've already done.

Ideally you'd have the CPU power cable coming out of the blue circle but if you can't reach that far then wire it similar to:



After this it should look much better Also post a shot like the one I've edited, so that we can see the whole case and not have to piece each picture together
