Hey Southie, Great Paint. This my first time seeing a White inside on a scout and If you would have asked me for recommendations on the color choice I would have said it would probably not be that good of a Choice. WRONG. It is an Excellent Choice. That white really Sings with those fan blades. Great Job. Great Imagination and a Really smooth Paint job.. Rep up for your Work.

im thinking about selling my corsair one, it makes everything so much harder when i have a spare 4 connector molex cable and sata power cable not being used, as well as two extra pci-e's.
Sleeving the front panels are super easy and damn hard at the same time. You have to take the connection at the the mother board off and remove the pins from the USB and Sound headers.. Marking all of them or making sure you have your Motherboard Book handy to locate all the wires .. Check you color code on the USB or make Notes with good old fashioned Pen And Paper.. Then tape the end of the loose wires together tight and work the wire loom over the wire and until the wire loom disappears into the top of the case. Pull back a little and cut your Sleeving and the set your shrink on the end and melt it. Then slowly and surely replace the wires in the right positions.
The Kingwin has the best connectors. Most have the Mainplug and the 4 and 8 pin CPU wire because they don't want any resistance in those circuit and they are always needed.
I like the Corsair because of the flat cables but the Xigmatek and the OCZ are good too.

It does not impede airflow. the PSU sucks air from the bottom and blows it out the back and there are no reasons to keep the wires that low cool.
