Thread Starter 
Let me begin by saying hello to all of OcNet. I built my first rig in may of 2012 with some money i had saved up. I worked in a pc repair shop through high-school and saw some pretty cool builds go through there(maybe 2 or 3 really nice ones). So i left that job with an ok knowledge on pc building so with the money i saved i decided to build myself what i consider to be a mid range gaming pc. Now im here looking to see how i can improve upon my rig and gain more knowledge for future builds. So thanks in advance for any and all of your help.
P.S.
I am pretty terrible with cable management. Any good tips off the top of your head?tongue.gif

If you could fill in your rig components it would help us to help you by knowing what you have wink.gif
As for cable management, time and patience is vital. Route what you can behind your motherboard tray and use zip ties to neaten things up. Without knowing the specifics, like what case you have, it's difficult to offer advice.

Edit to add - And welcome to OCN biggrin.gif
If you'd care to put your rig to good use, crunching data for worthy causes when you're not gaming, check out the Boinc section thumb.gif
