you my friend need aleve.

k. turn your fan on the cpu around so the wire comes off on the top side next to the motherboard.

take all the black plasic clips out and run the 24 pin behind the motherboard tray along with the cd drive and hard drive power (move your hard drive down 2 spots so its in the air flow not above it)

remove the other unused hard drive cages

try putting your 8or4 pin cpu power cable behind the motherboard and have it come out the hole at the top and down to the plug. if it won't reach get a extender or try to fit it between the video card and motherboard so it doesn't stand out so much.

the 3 pin fans on 3 to 4 adapters can be done behind the motherboard tray. put the wires in the whole plug in the adapters behind the tray and have the wire come out next to the fan.

there is a fan wire at the bottom and it looks like a 3 pin plug on the motherboard that isn't being used. plug that fan in to the motherboard instead of the adapter.

the usb and fire wire cables can come out of the hole next to the psu and go to the motherboard also.


lol take a deep breath and get on them wires and watch your temps come down.


edit: also move your top fan to the back slot. behind your cpu heat sink. where it is now your pulling the cool air out of your case before it does any thing.

I just installed it and dont know if removing the fan is tricky without removing the mobo !
Also i tried the mobo cable behind the tray but i felt like i wont be able to close that side,
this cable is HUGE !

Yeah, everyone else is routing these cables behind there. So, you can do it too.

For my power supply, I had to cut a seperate hole to make my cpu connector reach, and even then it was tough. Also, I figured out it's a lot easier to put the cables in behind the motherboard panel, and then put the power supply in. So when you're tidying up, unscrew your power supply, it should make things easier.

ok i did most of what u told me (Thank u very much ) but the cables connecting to
the motherboard i couldn't do anything about them! And i hardly closed the right
side panel after many attempts and i feel it open at the middle (feel a space) but
it's forced closed !!!Is it ok for the cables to be pushed that hard !
mmm and i didn't use the clips with the psu i used these some how plastic weak wires(see pic ), and also couldn't remove the case platic clips .
before managment i got 31 idle now i get 30 idle !with the case open 28 ,what do u think.
*sorry for all these questions
