Thanks for the advice! The back is a hot mess, and I'm pretty sure I got tired about halfway through. I did buy some NZXT sleeved extensions, but the case wasn't as tall as I was thinking (coming from an Antec 1200). I am considering using them now though as the pictures look so pretty. I will also look at some PCI-E sleeved cables. Granted this is my 2nd attempt of really trying at it smile.gif.

I wouldn't mind seeing more pics of everyone's "behind the mobo" cabling.

I sometime think to mount a 420 radiator on top in my phantom case.
The magiccol would just fit. By now i have a 280magiccol radiator.
And would put one in top of the other.

little question, isn't the hot air, if the radiator is at the bottom of the case counterproductive?

I was thinking so, because all the heat it takes from the cards it reinhales it in the case.

or maybe it works if there is a good airflow?

Behind the mobo is usually hidden away for a reason. For every tidy visible cable job, there's an equal mess hidden somewhere. Or maybe that's just me.

Here's an interesting conundrum.

I'm looking for fan guards that my kitten won't be able to stick her paws or claws through. Will any guard with holes that small still give decent airflow?
The other thing I'm considering is a larger guard on top of a shroud, so that even if she sticks her claws through, she can't stick them far enough through to hit the fan.
She's about a month and a half old, so her paws are still really small.

What do other people do about pets?

I've found with my cats that they only do something that hurts once smile.gif I have problems with my older cats cuddling up to the sides of my PC, so I put it on the desk. They know what happens if they go on my desk bruce.gif

Also, I have one of those iguana/snake heat rocks that ended up not being hot enough for my snake. It isn't hot enough to hurt her, so I'm tempted to set that up so she stays away from the computer.
I'm moving in 2 weeks, so she's staying with a friend while I set up to accommodate her. I will be able to hide everything else ok, so I'm only worried about the things on my desk, mostly my computer and things she can chew on or damage in some other way.
I feel like a scratching post or climbing tower should be in order, but it's questionable if I'll have the space for it.

Right now its open side. Also, I have a temporary external rad on my desk. Just rad and fans.
