Cable management was a pain but it made me more satisfied once I was done. biggrin.gif

I also removed the upper drive cage's fittings.

That put mine to shame, I started messing with it last night and gave up, i hate cable management. I want to find a cable management consultant to come clean my rig up smile.gif

don't really see the point in cable management and modular psus if the side panel is on. same goes for water-cooling if you don't overclock. although i did my cables well when i was building because it was just interesting to me if i could do it clean, and because my lid is open. otherwise i could care less.

Dust.
Messy cables + Dust = PITA to clean

well that pretty much depends on the case structure, number of fans installed and their quality obviously, and even if you gain somehow a couple of degrees from the cable clutter which i highly doubt it's not that you gonna burn any of the components anyway.

lol yeah, good luck with that. Been there, seen that. First time I built my rig (in R3) I just slapped everything in it and started it up. I probably spent three times the amount of time cleaning it 2 months later than I had used to put the rig together. Redid my cables, next time it took me 5 mins to blow the dust off as all the cables were clean 'cause they were neatly behind the mobo tray.
But hey, dust and pain-free rigs arent for everyone I guess... I'd just rather spend an extra hour when building the rig to ensure that everything I do to it later will go swiftly.

it's too hard these days working around color schemes. Guess I really value
function over fashion. But, that BLUE does stick out wink.gif

I know ! And there's only so much room to work with, out back. That's prolly the
only real issue I faced, building my 1st mATX box.

I did tho, create a totally clean path from the two front 120's & the operating temps
verify it worked. Clear unobstructive paths of air, does indeed make a huge improvement.
Again, the function part clearly over-ruled those lil messy parts. I know with a little
moving around, could be improved.......but i'm too dang lazy at this junction.


GUILT EDIT:

It was raining when I woke up.....therfore, the perfect excuse to delay whatever I
wasn't gonna do anyhow.....and address "the mess"
