And this one shows my lighting... I could use a little bit more of it in the front.

By the way, I have a thing for network cards, so don't tell me to take them out
Can I get a rate on mine?

^ I would give you a 8/10, A couple of extra wires on the bottom and mis. places, but overall looks great...I have always liked those thermaltake cases....

Well, here is mine...I still have yet to figure out what to do with the wires on the bottom, I don't have very much space behind the mobo...Rate away...

I'd say 7.5/10 on that one. You can probably route those wires a little bit better for improved airflow, but forget about hiding them in an all acrylic case. Nice work though, looks very clean.

Hey guys, after reading through most of the thread and getting some good ideas on cable management (and realizing how much my current setup sucked ) i spent the weekend doing my cables (and other bits and bobs, i'm watercooled so i redid my loop and rad mounting (mounted upside down now to cut out the long pipes running outside of the case)

So Rate my cables

Please note, my case is a full case, its not like some of the other cases here which seem to be more bare bones than anything, meaning like 1 harddrive, low/no cd-drives, standard gfx cards, light WC'ing and/or low amounts of fans with no fan controlls, no connections to "front bezel" usb ports (mine happen to be at the top of the case....), etc.

Mines got 2x IDE DVD Drives, 1 Sata Drive, 5 Fans, 1 Fan controller (that controls all fans), a biggish PSU (in the way the the cords stick out so far before they can bend), Gfx card with PCI-E power connectors, a full WC'ing Loop, Dual CCFL's, etc

Please consider all that when rating, don't just directly compare it to Slades or someones and give it a crap or lower score, i really wanna know what everyone thinks

Now onto the pics (Also note, a family member stole my digital camera so i had to use my phone camera, i think the pics are pretty good for a mobile phone camera !)

Before



After - Finished (For now)



(Few notes: I aimed to make the main area, where the mobo was the cleanest, as the top section is barely seen with the side on. Also some cords, like the top mounted USB Ports/sound/mic plugs could only reach so far so i couldn't move them out to the side of the top section, tho the USB's did make it down behind the board and out the bottom near where the buttons/LED's hook in , and IDE's suck arse for cable management )


Theres a tonne more pics i took when i was rebuilding here.
They include, pics taken during the cable management, including hole cutting, wire routing, etc (you can see just how many wires there is....), setting up of my loop and the amusing amount of Foaming I encountered for some reason (wasn't funny at the time) and also the little custom mount i made for the Cathode light switch (Front top, next to the power button/etc, the red one in the grill) and more, check em out

Cheers all

ps, i just noticed on the "finished" pics theres a random wire sticking out of one of the hard drive bays, its the power lead to my CCFL inverter which must of got caught up when i put the little Thermaltake drawer in there - Oooops :O I'll fix that tomoz, please disregard it
