Flip your PSU if you need more length for the cpu power connector.
I'm not so sure I want the 1200 now.
the wires of the rear fans are behind the mobo tray so they`re gone.
and i can`t lower my hdd`s cause my rad is under it
so that`s the only possible place

What a piece of crap.

I have a few peeves about the case. The PSU 8 pin cable isn't long enough to tuck in behind the board, and the fan on the window is too small and if you happend to have, idunno, hard drives in the bays, the fron tfans are pretty much usless for bringing in cool air to the main area.

the PSU cable can be extended...so no problem there.
fan on the window? i don`t use that because of my vga cooler.
front fans move a ton of air...even with the hdd`s in place.
the lower 2 fans cool my rad and they cool them the same as my SilenX pro 72CFM fans.

so i think you`re a bit overreacting.
and eevn so...if you don`t like it...don`t buy it
you`re not forced to buy it

gotta get creative with wire management......theres always more ways to hide wires, you just have to stare at the case+setup long enough and you will get some ideas Zip ties are your friend as well.....you could move the cathodes and inverter somewhere else? mount the inverter above the rear fans if there is room.....thats what i did in my antec 900 when i had it. Also mounted the lights at the top of the case on either side of the fan.....good luck, sweet looking case!

i`ve been trying with the inverter and cathodes...but for now i`m happy with where they are.
i have 1 cathode on top, 1 on the front (with my rad), 1 below my rear fans, and 1 on top of my PSU.
so now my entire wc loop is uv-active
but it`ll change soon.

also i have been busy with some wire-management, but for now only the (closed) side panel fits better, so no real improvement yet.

tonight i`ll try and figure out how i can flip my hdd`s, and hide some more cables.

I have an Antec 900, so its a little different.
With the wires that are visible inside the case, try to group them together as much as possible. Sleeving them would be the best option if you couldn't hide them. You may have to add more cable routing holes to make it look clean.
IMO, flipping the drives around is prob one of the best ways to tidy up the inside of your case. I have 3 drives flipped. The two Raptors i drilled the second set of holes to secure them. The third drive i got lazy and just used the 2 screws that i didnt have to drill for.
I stilll have plans to sleeve some more of my cables and change some things around. I think cable management is an ongoing thing.
Hope this helps.

@ Stingerjg : your case looks nice
i wish mine was so tidy

last night i did some simple cable-management cause i didn`t have the time to go all out.
and tonight isn`t gonna be much different either
gonna give my sister my old NZXT Apollo case cause the now uses some crappy old Dell case

hmmz maybe that old case can become a project

anyways...for now it`s a bit better than it was...so i`m pleased
i`ll post pics when i`m home from work.
