Exactly, apparently sleeving your cables is more important than hiding them. Sorry, I'm not about to pretty up something I DON'T WANT TO BE SEEN.

But then again its just people's opinions too, which will vary.

I think you're confusing individual opinions in an anonymous internet forum with some sort of official scoring system rules or having official judges that all score based on the same criteria. I think the forum is great for getting feedback or advice and giving out "looks great man, keep it up" comments.

If you decide to take your ball and go home, that's certainly fine. Nobody is forced to participate. I'd encourage everyone else to be positive and not get so worked up about what a single person out of the hundreds rates your rig.

@tpavur, 9/10. The cables near the PSU look a little unsightly. Maybe try putting some of them on the backside of the motherboard tray if you can.

Also minus 0.5 for not putting the kid inside the case.

Back to our regularly scheduled rating:

Uppercutx, I really like what you did. You have the same case layout as mine and you can see how clean you can make it look even without cutting. Kind of makes me wish I had shorter video cards for more space but I like the performance. I'd love to see how you have things secured behind the tray. 9.7/10 (personal dock because I don't want to see the bare wire unless it's been designed that way.)

tpavur: I maintain that that case is one of the best available for cable management. So many ways in and around. You get a pass on the bare wire because it's all black. I don't know if you did that or if that's a feature of that PSU, but it works. I'll give you a 9/10, knocking off a couple points for the stuff going on below your rear fan (what is that?) and the wires from the cpu mount and memory fans are kind of floating out there. Beautiful work though, looks great. Kid gets a 10/10 for being cute.

Functionally it's great. Everything is out of the way. If you don't do anything else, it's fine, just not as aesthetically pleasing as it could be. Couple of things I would do: Cut the ends off your cable ties. Run the cpu fan cable up and then under the mother board to get it out of the way instead of across your memory bank. What's going on with the rear fan, is that some sort of adapter to get it to run off the motherboard header? Get a fan that will run direct. Maybe strap down some of the other stragglers to something. Of course I'd sleeve too if you're up for it. 6.8/10

Trust me, I was a bit aggravated that mine w/ better management than a full 3/4's of the 10/10's got an 8. I mean really, for a custom cut case w/ no hdd drive bay and very little of the fully sleeved wiring showing at all?!? Much less, there are some rigs in here that deserved no higher than a 5-7 that recieved 10's. Oh, almost forgot, full mobo/psu connector swap too...frustrating isn't even the word.

A full half of the people posting pics don't rank the people that posted directly before them.

I'm not confusing anything. Mine was rated 8/10, and you can ONLY see the cables as they come out from behind and plug in. There is NOTHING more I can do, other than sleeve the ones that are visible. I spent NINE HOURS building my rig, so I could have great cable management. I'm just angry because mine was rated 8/10, whereas somebody who OBVIOUSLY didn't spend any time at all on cable management, scored 10/10, just because he had sleeved cables. How is that confusing?

Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one frustrated because I spent a LOT of time building my rig to look nice, and I get a crap score just because somebody has pretty sleeving.

I took my pictures down. I'm no longer going to share pictures on OCN period.

Okay, pioneerisloud your going a bit far with this. I mean common, it was just some random person's opinion.

I do find it really odd that everyone on these boards are so uptight about sleeving, I've always ignored it because I'd prefer not to see the cables to begin with. It makes no sense and seems asinine, but some people seem to prefer to see some messy cables as long as they are custom sleeved.

Aww, I just went back to try and find your pics, only to then come back and re-read your post and find out that you took them down..

I really wanted to see what you did.

Anyways, I feel the same way as you, but to a lesser extent I think. I have fully sleeved cables, and they are all hidden except for the CPU, 24-Pin and GPU power cables, yet I still only got 9/10 and I'm not sure why. The rating system is terribly flawed, but heh, nothing you can do about it.

It really comes down to you though, and not some random guy's opinion on the net. I like the way my rig looks, and I'm sure you love the way yours looks, so isn't that all that matters? If I can look at my rig and honestly say that it's the best damn job I could have done, well then that's a 10 in my books.
