If you need any references to what it should look like, just go online and a quick google search should bring up TONS of images the people have posted where the wiring is clean and organized. In fact Thermaltake probably has a few images on their website with the Overseer built so you can see what it should look like inside.
In regards to your PSU, don't toss it. You paid for it. If you feel that upset at the shop for doing that I would make a direct complaint to Corsair. Since the shop is trusted by Corsair to provide good service, them doing something like that to squeeze a few more bucks out of you is not going to go over well. Be assertive and firm. Tell Corsair that it is unacceptable that a licensed retailer would do that. Send them your specs and show them that the shop put a PSU twice the size that you needed into that computer. Also show them pictures of the wiring on the inside. Then say you expect Corsair as a reputable company that prides itself on customer service and high quality parts to get in contact with the shop to resolve the matter with a solution that is not just another inconvenience to you, but instead a resolution that benefits you as you have already been extraordinarily inconvenienced. Tell them that you and your friends had been loyal Corsair customers who have given Corsair business through your own purchases and by recommending others purchase Corsair products and that if this matter is not resolved you will no longer be using Corsair products in the future nor will your friends. Additionally state that you will cease to recommend Corsair to anyone and will instead tell them to stay away from their products lest they have a similar experience. Corsair, even though it is a bigger company, definitely prides itself on good product reviews and hates hearing **** like that. You paid the premium price for the Corsair product and you should get the service and treatment that goes along with the premium price. You don't expect to shop for a Porsche and be treated like garbage.
Honestly there is no need for the extra wiring. That was just them wanting to throw everything together and send you on your way. They can give you the extra parts in a box with all the other warranty information, driver disks, part badges, instruction manuals, etc. Most people who buy something from a shop will not add parts in the future. They know this. Even if you add another GPU to go SLI in the future, you are going to be able to figure that out easily and don't need that mess making it any more confusing. Just out of curiosity what was the name of the shop you went to and what city/town is it in?
I still want to see the 3rd build even if it isn't anything special. If you haven't caught on yet, most enthusiasts are very visual people.
Forget about the complaint, it will not make me go anywhere, the sop never forced me to buy AX1200 and even the bill doesn't have any prices, and i called one department of financial and one lawyer, they all said it will not help me there, i may complain and do many things but it will take me under very very long case and i may pay something more only to win or have justice, so if it is all about getting $100-150 dollar back to have another option then i better not do it, i live far from that town, the shop i bought from is in Dubai, in one big building called Computer Plaza where many many computer shops are there, and that shop is not good one and the prices are high, but i didn't know about it, i was late to claim return and they caught by my mistake, in fact i spent about 3 weeks calling them for refund or replacement and at the end that what happened, so i decided i just waste my money now to learn a very hard lesson and will use this PSU later if needed, i never know when i may need 1200W sooner or later, i can buy lower power much cheaper from another shop and keep this for future, but i put it in use to see performance and i can decide later if i better take it off and use something less and keep this 1200W for another rig has more power hunger components and very heavy use.
The shop assembled me rig is just near my house, there is one friend i know, many or all shops around me are cheap and they just want to do any service and make us pay, and if i discuss with them why you do this or that then they tell me forget those internet people, we are doing this service for many years like 10-20 and no issues or problems we faced, so if i keep very strict about the services i want then they may not do it for me or they may pay me more if i want service as i want, cable things is not difficult thing for them to clean, but in fact it is that i never thought it will be not good idea and look, and if i go back to them then i have to give them very strong reason why i want to clean it as always i keep telling them people online from USA and Europe they know better than them or advise me when they don't know about things.
Simply many open business here to get money, service is perfect or crap doesn't matter, many people don't complain because many complains don't go throw or go in very very long time processing and then many people withdraw their complains and i think most those people in business know about it, we don't have many big strong shops name and servies around me, i have to drive very far and wasting time looking for best service and big names shops.
I will do that 3rd pics sooner or later, i am now busy reading this forum and watching youtube.
