Hahaha, I suppose I did triple post, but I just felt compelled to apologize for posting the same thing 2 times.

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.

the amount of dust collected by the chassis depends on the room interior. as long as you don't have a cable spider-web inside and a room which hasn't been cleaned for years on, there's no real hustle cleaning the rig.

Is good cable management with a nonmodular PSU a possibility in the R3?
Will I have to stuff cables in the HDD bays?

well I guess ultimately most things only matter as much as you feel they do, especially when it comes to things not directly connected to survival. Really I don't need a case, or could have probably just gotten a $20 one.

@Paranoia Pretty nice 10/10.

Got some new merchandise to go in the case soon... cheers.gif

Also these,

Silicon jack covers, adds a nice look and keeps out the dust. Got more of them to fill in the io shield ports as well.

The most right one is the usb 3 jack so it's a bit bulgier than the other two. nbd though.
