what counts is whats on the inside, and by that I mean how well it works.
If you want it to be a showstopper you have alot of work to do.

Take off the non-windowed side panel and see how many cables you can get back there neatly. Also, try putting some cables under the motherboard. Another extremely easy alternative to sleeving is that plastic flexible conduit. You can get it painted, or paint it yourself using a plastic primer and then a basecoat.

That's a heck of a lot better than mine, and way better than any pre-built PC has. I would be honored to buy that kind of rig from someone.

In that case, just sell it and be done with it, that way you start fresh.

i would hide the cathodes in a corner or something to prevent looking directly into the bulb, its very bad for your eyes. i suggest running the power, reset, and the led cables along the non windowed side of the case till the very bottom and have the cables re-enter the case near the storage box at the bottom. itll clean up some of the cabling along the inside, also try using zip-ties to clean up the clutter in the drive bays. yes, i love zip ties
