^Very nice, 9/10. My only criticisms would be the sticker on the PSU sticks out a bit and the fan as you mentioned.

Also I find it annoying how Corsair have used the tubing on the H100, as you can see in your build the tubing looks like it is the wrong way round, same in my rig.

its because they designed it for the rad to be upside down, but it doesn't fit due to the PCI slot cage extruding out.

i can definitely get rid of the Antec sticker. no big deal.

also, i don't know how to make my sleeved cables look straight. they just look tangled.

Yeah, I see what you mean.

As for the cables the only thing I can suggest is maybe use a little less slack and make liberal use of cable ties where you can, maybe near where the GPU cables go through the cable management holes try and use a white cable-tie? But it's not really that much of an issue, it still looks excellent, I can't wait until I can afford the aesthetic stuff for my rig so it looks less messy.

I'll tell ya how to make it slightly better looking.

The 24 pin cable is sticking out too far, slightly blocking air from the fan. Try to organize the excess of the cable behind the motherboard tray.

As for the gpu cables, first try to tuck the excess behind the tray as well and if that doesn't work, I'd sort the individual cables so they go tighter together and zip tie them. The excess however is what mainly causing it to look a little messy.

Kinda like how Maingear does it on their builds:

See how clean that looks?
