With this case/psu combo there wasn't too much I could do but ill at least try to clean it up nicer.
The fact that i had to remove my side fan to fit the hyper 212+ doesn't help much either.
Even though it is kinda stuffy in the case, it stays really cool so I guess I'd just be cleaning up for for a nicer look?

why not care for rebates?
And seeing that it cost 340 after rebates and the rebates are for $80, the total before-rebate cost would be 420. 420 hahaha
my build just got even cooler

Excellent build for the price, well done. Only thing I would have changed is the PSU. Not that it matter too much, but that PSU is considered junk (don't take that personally).

Fantastic job. ATI was the first line I loved. For a first build, that's very impressive.

Well even if it isn't the best, it's doing the job well so far. Its quiet and it was a good choice seeing that I got it for $15.
For me, the next step up would have been expensive and I would at least want something modular.
