Currently, I have the front fans sucking in air from the front. I understand this is the best configuration for temperatures but I find it hard to manage my HDD cables... How much worse will my overall temps be if I were to have the two fans suck air from the side of the case (default configuration)?

Also, does anyone have any tips for the H100 cable management?

I've wondered this myself. The only way really is to just try it.

About the H-100 cable management. You could get a fan controller and plug the fans in there if you don't want cables coming across your board.

I'm gonna get PWM fans so a fan controller isn't really an option. Would it be safe to "tie" the cables of my fans to make them shorter?

Perfectly safe, back of my case is cable tie heaven if it helps you can route the cables round the back of the motherboard as well I did that with a couple which made things far easier for me.

i havent owned a lot of cases, i normally build a pc and keep it for a few years. with that... coming off a antec900v1 i'm really pleased with this case and considering i take it out on the back screened room, the temps are acceptable for florida heat.

I also found the cables a little messy (with the fans at the front) So I moved my big old hard drive to the back side of the case see pic below.

I never posted my pictures. lol... It's a pain in the rear to take my tower down for pictures... Next time I'm tinkering in the case I will though.

HOWEVER, I have uploaded a couple new videos from BF3 to YouTube. I'd be most appreciative if you give them a look. I'm rather fond of this one here:

OMG! Thanks for this idea, I've been hiding my antenna's in the backside of the case but they don't sit well. I'm moving mine to the inside now! I was thinking about coating them in black plastidip but no reason to do so now.
