After you clean up that mess, take out the bottom hdd cage. Its blocking airflow, and its not being used. You could either sleeve your multicolored rats nest, our use heatshrink, or electrical tape. Whichever is cheapest/easiest for you. I would also get all the same color sata cables. The audio cable going to the mobo can be wrapped with electrical tape, tends to look a little better than just a zip tie/twisty tie..

Is that an esata bracket on the side? If you dont use it, take it out.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong but, do ram sticks on an amd board need to be in every other slot if its dual channel? Intel boards need to be in slots 0/2 or 1/3 to have dual channel running.

Last thing. The sata cable going to the optical drive, could that be reworked to go one more slot higher? The end that us near the optical drive itself. That sata power cable too, do you want the last power connectors hanging there? Or could you just use the end connector on the optical drive and put the rest of the cable behind the mobo tray/5.25 cage?

Edit: use your mobo fan connectors instead of molex, the mobo will control fan speed based on set parameters, instead of being on 100% full blast. The slower the fan, the quieter it well be

I may do that.

You could either sleeve your multicolored rats nest, our use heatshrink, or electrical tape. Whichever is cheapest/easiest for you. I would also get all the same color sata cables.

I think I can get a hold of some long black SATA cables.

The audio cable going to the mobo can be wrapped with electrical tape, tends to look a little better than just a zip tie/twisty tie..

I like the idea.

Yes. I use it.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong but, do ram sticks on an amd board need to be in every other slot if its dual channel? Intel boards need to be in slots 0/2 or 1/3 to have dual channel running.

Half of my RAM slots are blue, the other half is white.

Last thing. The sata cable going to the optical drive, could that be reworked to go one more slot higher?

That was because that is a reused cable from my former MSI mobo. If I get those previously mentioned SATA cables, this shouldn't be an issue anymore as it will be hidden much better.

That sata power cable too, do you want the last power connectors hanging there? Or could you just use the end connector on the optical drive and put the rest of the cable behind the mobo tray/5.25 cage?

I like the idea.

The horrible mess in between the PSU and the HDD cage is because I use a hack to keep my front 120mm fan from being too noisy. It's a Zalman Fanmate2 that I got from my CPU cooler. I want to keep the fan because my HDDs run rather hot both to the touch and reported by the sensor without it.

EDIT again: My fan's cable is short and the nearest fan header is broken, it doesn't spin any fans but it does give RPM readings, so no, I cannot use that fan header. My crumby motherboard probably won't let me control it, anyway. Stupid piece of junk.

Can I recommend the sauce for the spaghetti?tongue.gif:D

Get a fan controller and make it look like mine to an extent minus the rubber grommets which I was lucky to get.

Nope, with my setup it makes NO CPU temp difference so why keep it off?wink.gif

Besides I like that 120mm fan on the Hard drive cage - does justice for the graphics card temps.

And I did try a fan on the bottom blowing upwards and made the temps worse as I thought it would.
