First I just want to say it stinks that you're so far away, I'd love to have some of the mods you've done to that new build.

Now, for your wires and cables. Clockwise from upper left, that looks like 2 fan wires right? Easiest way is to get Krylon or some other plastic paint and paint them black but the first way I learned to pretty up fan wires is take a pencil, wrap the wires around real tight, buched up toghether side by side, squeeze them real tight then carefully pull out the pencil, you don't get rid of the wires but they go all in a spiral, looks pretty neat.
Next, optical drive cables right? If the top is where you want the drive there's not much you can do my drive cables are also coming out of that hole to the drives, I yanked them back and zipped them tight together but they are black and in a black case, that makes them pretty tidy. Next is through the drive cage into the vid card right? All I can see with that is paint them black too, make sure the contacts are totally filled with packing foam or something non sticky that will protect the contacts.
Next, SATA cables from mobo to HDD's right? Well, you can buy black cables that have 90deg angles on them then they dont jut out like that and blend in better with the case. No, that's not it right?, it's the blue part next to them and the leads that go to the switches on the front of the case? How about some of the same mesh that comes with power supplies to hold the cables together. Do you have to pay a lot for shipping from the U.S.? Frozencpu.com has lots of colors of that stuff. It's pretty light weight but I know some of these companies don't even ship out of country, however, if you go to the hardware store you can usually find black heatshrink tubing. If you get it big enough to surround all 3 of those cables then it should flare out with some coaxing at the mobo connectors, then slide it down the other cables, apply some heat in short bursts and get it to shrink. The same tubing would also work around the cables coming out of the hard drive cage. If you hadn't circled those things in red though, I would have said it's a very tidy case. You've got a mix of other colors on the mobo anyway so unless you want to cap everything, why do these bug you?

Please tell me what you think and if it doesn't work I'll storm something up.

I do have a couple of ideas on how to cap everything that isn't black. Unless I get my CC tubes the only things you can see when my side panel is on are the LED read out for the proc temps and the fan lights behind the reservoir. Oh and the hard drive spec plate, hopefully Kev_b's back will get better and he can pay for the surgery buy making us acrylic drive plates.

Minor updates to my system. Cleaned up the video card power wiring a little bit; no more bunch up in the HDD area. Made the SATA cables match. But the big reason for even posting an update is I solved my upside down Corsair logo problem

New 3M carbon fiber look film. Got a few free samples of it at SEMA.

Still have a few wires to reroute/hide/sleeve. What do you think?

Do you use the PSU dust filter? Doesn't the PSU get hot, I mean, does it get enough air?
