Thanks guys for the kind words and suggestions. Im very keen to do some more cable management. Iv ordered the Corsair Modular 750W but seems they having trouble getting it here. Ill have to keep looking and see if i can source it from somewhere else.
I will def try tuck the cables behind the MB when i do get it though. That MB power cable is driving me mad.

My little experiment with cooling the gpu failed, the air flow felt really good but in the end it did not change the temps but 1 degree lower on the gpu.
Now I have to make a choice, keep the added fans and controler or remove them, I may just keep the 140 fan between the psu and the HDD cage, the light from the led does make it look cool thru the window.

Well for it to cool it better i think you would need to cut out the bottom and put a fan there too( or just put that one there) so you get more cool air inn.. not just pushing whats all ready inside up. But nice idea might try it myself.

I think you and I are at the same point. If we want to lower our gpu temps, we are going to have to invest in an aftermarket cooler.

No way, not on this gpu, its a Zotac 9600 GT, not worth throwing any money at it. I may take my 9800GTX+ out of my other rig and and use it in this new rig and get something else for my main rig.

The air was plenty cool enough and directed where I want it to go, the Zotac 9600GT just doesn't have much of a cooling fan to begin with.

Just bought this case for a friend's build, can't beat the Micro Center price of $59.99!

Hopefully the CM extreme power 600w PSU will have cables long enough for me to manage...
