I am not a perfectionist. So this is about the best that my case will look.
The outside lighting was a bit harsh, i hope to take some better indoor pics later.
I didn't want the individual wires sleeved, so i ended up just do a standard easy sleeve.

I hate to even show how poor the cable management is.
Does anyone else do a good job here, or do they just leave it as it is,hidden?
I had to cut part of the cm 212 + mounting metal off to fit this mobo into this case.

Nice build micro, clean and simple. Like the color accents, may I suggest you remove the bottom plastic fan mount. It really is pointless unless you plan on putting a fan there, even if you do its best to put that fan in the space underneath that fan mount. Lastly, your CPU fan is it set up as a pull or a push?

Thanks!
I saw the fan mount there, but i didn't even think about removing it.
Thanks for the tip of the fan placement.

The cpu cooler is set up as a pull with an exhaust out the back of the case. My Corsair Vengeance memory is super tall (the tallest ram i have seen, taller than g skill ripjaw or corsair dominator) and placing a fan there as a push, the top fan clip would only hold onto the top fin of the cooler. There is not enough room with that memory to have the cooler set vertically to push the air to the top of the case. If you have a better suggestion, i would love to hear it.(cooler master 212 +)

I only over clock the 2600k to 4.0, so it is running plenty cool atm (55-63c with prime 95).
I plan on getting a corsair h60 next summer as i don't want to go all out water cooling.

I have been building my own pc's for nearly 10 years, but i am new to painting and sleeving. I hope to repaint some of the blue that i did where i got some runs in the paint, or too thick or thin on the coverage.

EDIT:
I just measured the memory. The stick at its highest point in the center is 2". Add in the memory slot and it is at least 2 1/16"

hey, I tried to mount a fan underneath the fan mount, but found no way to route the fan cable into the case. how did you do it?

thanks tom!
