Wow, just wow. I know my machine has 10x better cable management than some I've seen posted recently (not pointing any fingers at anybody in particular here). And I've seen 10's given out for MUCH worse.
Whatever, this is exactly the reason why I don't care about this particular thread anymore. I spent 15 hours putting this machine together, and ordering parts JUST for this thread alone. And that wasn't enough. And people with less visually attractive machines come in (wires going everywhere), and they get a 10.
First off, you ordering parts, spending tons JUST to gain some epeen on a thread: sad
It would be redeemable if you did it because you want your case to look good AND for this thread. Then go ahead, that's a good reason
Secondly, face it you can spend hours and hours doing cable management but then just a few things are out of order. That ruins it. I had to rewire my DVD power connector (as in take it all apart) just to get a few more inches of space so I could go that extra length. Also some cases have better management than others. For example, the Corsair lineup has amazing cable management, and I can spend 10 minutes doing what would've taken hours on my Antec 900.
Thirdly; the rating system is user based, ergo, its biased and always will be.
What I generally look for is help, ratings come second. Sure some guy can rate someone 10/10 just because he has watercooling or awesome pwnsauce parts but that's not a real review. People who help you such as Tennobanzai are what this threads really about. He tried to help and you raged at him. If you want help from me, well I'd say seeing as how you want your case to look good, superglue the shroud onto the fan, then use black zipties to hold the bottom one on, and let gravity hold the top one on (works for me). That molex can just be slotted into the 5.25" bays and please take less blurry shots (use flash) or a camera stand preferably.
