hey guys,
I just finished up putting in some of that styrofoam stuff in front of my hard drive bays, tell me if it looks good or not(sorry for the crappy photos, I'm planning on getting a camera soon). and also does anyone know how to keep it stationary? Cause It slides around sometimes.

Also, I have been thinking about adding some color to the inside of my case. I'm thinking about painting the the little things that hold the expansion cards in place and the expansion slot covers red. Also, I was wondering, does anyone know if those things that hold the 5.25" drive bays in place are removable? Because I would like to paint those as well.

I feel like I can still do better with my cable management. So, I need tips on what to do with those cables.
Wow, thats not cable management, thats cable mismanagement!

Ok, tips:
a) Run your cpu power cable behind your motherboard tray and through a slit in the top near the topside exhaust.
b) Take all of those cables from the power supply and route them through the hole at the bottom of of the case. Do this with your front I/O cables as well.
c) Take your gpu power cables and do the same things as the others, route them through the hole at the bottom and have them come out near the sata connectors on your motherboard.
d) Route your motherboard power through where you plug in your sata cables to the top right hole on your motherboard tray.

Do all of these things and your cable management will look something like this.

and the last pic is what behind your motherboard tray will look like, but no one will ever see it.

That's what I love about this processor. You can tape a aluminum gum wrapper on the 550 to keep it cool. I really think that if you were to keep it at normal clock speeds you could use a fanless cooler on it.

Well, there is only 1 front intake fan that it comes with stock and the leds aren't really that bright. If you decide to buy this case, I would suggest buying aftermarket fans with brighter leds, such as antec tricools or just buy a nice cold cathode kit if you are looking for more light in your system

Those would look sweet red. But I don't know that you really need to take them out. You could just use model paint and a brush.
