imo the stock fans move decent amount of air. the reason some people change it is that the front fan is noisy (they say because of the design). if it doesnt bother you, it may be worth keeping.

for cables, post a pic of the back of the case so we can see it? what i did is i distributed the cables evenly throughout the back, no cables are overlapping and that prevented the back panel from bulging too much (my psu is non-modular). also used a gazillion zip ties. for the ugly psu cable colors...paint it!

looking at your cooler setup, do you have that as intake? you have a blower type gpu that blows hot air at the back. if your cooler is set to intake, it is probably sucking the hot air from the gpu and may not cool as much.

Okay, so what kind of lighting do you recommend for the inside? I am looking preferably for white. I'll just keep the stock fans then.

Please don't laugh at my cables in the back.. I really have no skill for cable management, maybe it would help if someone who has a nice cable management in the back of their corsair 650d can share a picture? Or even a new builder can do a video.. Anyways don't laugh we were all noobs once.. smile.gif

To answer your last question, how do I know if my cooler is set to intake or not? Its a kuhler 620.

oops, lemme change what i said. it is impossible for cables to not overlap lol.

for lighting, this is what im planning to get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812170028

cooler: is your antec kuhler getting air from outside to inside your case?

i see you have sleeved cables. can't you plug that directly to your psu? anyway, im no cable management expert but here's what i did.

back view. basically i avoided the thick cables (yellow arrow) to overlap each other. i kinda interspersed the thinner cables all around, making sure they won't cause any unnecessary bulges. i also removed that usb3/sata cables from the front panel because i will not use it (red arrow). i routed some of the cables to the narrow groove on the floor (blue arrow). and finally tucked some of the cables under the hdd tray (white arrow). a lot of zipties were used.

side view. the cables are fairly flat.

now putting the side panel. still flat.

another view. yep, flat biggrin.gif

finally, front view. i think i can call it clean biggrin.gif

2nd question: My power supply is modular, and where the cables plug into the power supply you can see the wire colors which are a nasty blue, green, yellow, black. Is there anyway to hide it? I have uploaded a pic. Any other suggestions? haha

Also is there some sort of tutorial for wire management on the back? I have some serious bendage on the panel haha..


j8CXlPzhlLQxL.JPG

only way to get rid of your psu wiring is to fully sleeve or half and half sleeve it. fully sleeving is when every individual wire from psu to connector is sleeved. half and half is psu to midpoint one large sleeve and then after that individual wires are sleeved to the connector.

check out the cable sleeving gallery and discussion thread for more info and for examples.

I use a 2m blue NZXT LED kit in my 600T. I like it a lot. You should go with the longer one. 2m was just enough length to loop once around my 600T.

You're 650D is looking awesome.

You're 650D is looking awesome.

That is one fine looking build! But, my attention keeps being drawn to the gpu fan. Could it be mounted inside that empty bay area? Of course, with the side cover on it probably isn't even visible.
