Please dont hesitate to point out what i should tidy up to clean up the insides

thanks in advance people =D
I'd say 7.5/10, a very good start though

You did a good job down at the PSU. It would look a lot better if you could run those fan wires differently, when they're run right through the middle they really draw attention (similar to what I still need to do!). Also, if you hid those wires that are below the HDD in the bottom bay it would help a lot too, those don't really need to be there.

Keep it up

thanks for the feedback, with that fan wire running down the middle, thats really the best way to run it if i want to use the supplied zalman fanmate controller, but im considering a different cpu cooler maybe, with the others i might try using more extensions.

With those cables below the hdd how do you suggest i hide them as they're attatched to one cable (psu:corsair hx620), i guess i could add some more hdds .. but yeah

Maybe hide is the wrong word; you could make them run alongside the other wires that are already crossing from the mobo towards the HDD/optical racks. That way instead of seeing wires crossing in different places it would all be together.

And that sata power cable that comes down could just be zip-tied or taped up out of sight.

Good luck

I just love this thread. it just inspires you to rip your rig apart and put it back together, with less wires visible.

It's been a while since I submitted an entry, but I have one in the works. The case isn't too fancy, a Dell Dimension 2350 Matx. Hopefully i'll get it up int the next week or so.

I'll be back...., very soon.

Can you take a better photo that actually shows all the insides? You have taken it from an angle and there is a piece of wood in the way

And this is how it sits now. I have a new CPU and Mobo on the way so this will change a little later this week.




Let me know what you think.
10/10 for that buddy... That's pretty much exactly the sort of setup I'll be aiming for in my rig as next month once all the xmas jazz is over. I love the black painted casing and well hidden cables.
