Oh and don't even get me started on how awesome the colour choice is! (Its still a secret.)

I wonder... That upcoming build you're talking about, is it May?

Yeah I love it! Such a sweet case as you really don't have to do much modding to it to improve it.

Oh my yes! Bought the sexy new case today and I've already ordered some bits and peices for it! I'm gonna have a crack at doing 3 builds at once!

Edit - also to those who are repping me for this build, I have no idea who you are but thanks anyway!

You can, they sell the side panels on CM Store, I believe.

So not much is happening right now so heres a couple pics of my desk. Its a lovely way to tie both my threads together!





The orange glow on the cooler is from the orange fans in my TJ07.

Sleeved the hummer cables today.



I had to laugh as I was pulling the pin out of the plug, I pulled off the whole insulation! I just used heatshink over the bare wires and sleeved over that.





I could have used heatshrink over the red and blue connectors but decided against it!







Question time! I'm not sure if I've asked this before but what do you prefer more. Lots of little updates like this or fewer large updates?

I have now finished this build and I must say, it looks sweet! I'm a little behind on the log though so lets catch up shall we.

I started by evening out the heatshrink on all the PSU cables. I lost the before pics but please do enjoy the after ones!









Unfortunately due to the stupid postion of the CPU power header on the motherboard, I needed an extension.



Well that was easy enough!



Before I add these lovely cables to the build though, you gotta love this!



Even the PSU fan matches! Anyway...





The next 2 pics are of my cable management roughly finished.





Next up I had to get at least 4 molex power connectors to the switch panel. That was easier said then done.

The XFX modular cable only had 3 so what I did was use one from my corsair PSU. I just had to change the position of the wires in the plug that connects to the PSU.









Sigh... The next problem was that this cable was to short to be routed correctly so I had to get yet another cable!







It was about this point I added a wireless card to the build too.





I also slightly improoved the look of the CPU power cable.



Now a look into the drive bay...







Thanks to the bay covers, the white molex plugs are almost invisible.

Next up is my finished cable management! I decided to leave most of the zip ties intact. Its not lik you can see them from the front anyway...







You can see where I was pulling wires to make the CPU power cable pretty!





Sweet eh?

The last thing I had to do (regretfully upon my sisters demand,) was to add a fan to the side panel. While I was at it, I threw in my spare green CCFL.





I zip tied the fan and cable to the panel and the CCFL to the drive bay. Now to remove the panel, all that needs to be done is to pull the CCFL off the velcro and disconnect the fan. Also don't look to hard at the fan cable! I singed the sleeve adding the heatshrink, I raged cause it made me feel like a noob! Still too lazy to resleeve it though...

Finally with the panel back on!



All thats left to post now are the final pics!

Is your sister really that ungrateful to request a fan on the window? By god man, put a sheet of tinted acrylic in there!

Other than that though, simply lovely. Your sleeving skills are so incredibly awesome(I think half my problem is the materials I choose, I'm thinking of starting over with this PSU... FTW PC has very competitive prices).
