Here is my build. AMD 965 BE, GA-MA790GPT-UD3H, mugen2, 2x2gb corsair, (optical) drive fan mod, window mod-to solid with one r4, maybe 2nd fan on mugen2 above ram, all new fans on controller, I am using this for a DAW so onboard graphics. My question is "what order of assembly did you use or recommend?" I want to make this nice and tidy. I have read how to cut the hole and thread the 24 pin and install mugen after mobo install. Thanks for helping a first time builder.
I would run the front i/o panel wires first (reset, power, leds..) minus the usbs, sound under where the mobo is going and sit the mobo on top of that with the Mugen, probably run the 4/8 pin power around the back, and cable tie that down. Try and do the same for the 24pin as well, and cable tie that down too.
Do the same for the harddrives as well, and also you can run the 6pin power for the vga cards through the harddrive bracket and out one of the sides to hide that too.
Try and route everything in all the nooks...just persist and persevere and you'll get through it okay.
