Would it be better running under the video card? I didn't run it like that when I first installed it, because I wasn't sure if the cable contacting the motherboard would lead to problems later on.
I'm pretty sure the 500w modxstream uses the same length cables as the 700w. The 4/8 pin will reach through the CPU retention bracket hole. The 24 pin will reach through that top hole with all of the front panel stuff coming through though it's kind of a b**** to get it through the hole so I cut one lower.

Thanks K10. I plan to rewire everything up soon, so I'll try your suggestion and post back with a new picture. On a second note, which connector did you use to wire up the front audio? I have tried both the HD Audio and AC'97 one, but neither seam to work.

I have both the Storm and the Lancool K62, both great cases but the one thing the Storm has over the K62 is it's paint job on the inside, the Storm has a much nicer finish, it has this sight roughness to it that makes it stand out..

I use the HD Audio and it works fine for me.

this is a great case, sure beats the hell out of the Antec 300, and even the 900. in all area's. Other than cable management for the 24 pin being not the best, the rest of the management was very easy. This case was great to work with. I'll post pics later. I just finished a client build.

I ran my CPU 4 pin through the slot by the PSU, up the back of case, and through the CPU cooler backplate cut out. and turned it in and plugged in there. So it's completely out of the way. Everything else worked out pretty good.

The Optical drive was a little hard, you have to angle it up "slightly" when installing and it will slide right in. I got it after a few tries..

Did anyone install the Motherboard "Speaker" that came with the case, does it just make a sound when the PC starts? should I even install it?

Thanks!

I put my 24 pin through the top hole that all of the front I/O wires are going through. It's hard to feed through, but definitely possible.

I have my speaker installed but it's not necessary. I think one should only do it if they do heavy overclocking or are having issues and need beep codes to figure out what's wrong.
