thanks for the examples. i plan to try and tidy up my wires sunday when im off work. i plan to get a CM hyper 212 evo with a scythe fan to bring my temps down for rendering and encoding video if my computer continues running hot after the next few days which is only when doing video work. pretty sure my cpu barely gets hot when casually gaming. i just built it thursday so need to wait and see how it goes biggrin.gif

second attempt to get all cables out of the way. not quite perfectly hidden like yall pros. but my cables are totally out of the way now lol

I would move the hdd cage to the bottom instead of the top so that fan can blow straight to your graphics, but it won't really make a difference. Only other thing you could do is get a heatshrink for the end of those cables/get ones that are fully sleeved. Looks really good m8, I'd be happy with that.

If you have a 500r already just look up the specific motherboard's dimensions and take measurements in your case to be sure. I've asked this question before and the consensus was that, yes the 500r will fit an E-ATX board but it'll block out some of your sata ports because of how the motherboard area is recessed. Here is someone with a sniper 3 in their 500r, so you can see what I mean. http://www.overclock.net/t/1119694/official-corsair-carbide-series-300r-400r-500r-owners-club/2080]http://www.overclock.net/t/1119694/official-corsair-carbide-series-300r-400r-500r-owners-club/2080[
