    XD Only took me 2 months to bother with cablemanagement.
    Apparently I did a fine job the first time (some of you may remember how it looked back then), as it was only like 1C, maybe 2C, before and after I fixed it :P

    Still, pics of the inside (of the case) are always welcome

    And you did a very good job
    Why is the CPU power cable going outside via the back though ? Isn't it possible to let it go behind the mobo-tray just like the powercable from the fan?

    I tried many ways to get it to the top of the case, but trying to rout it up there was binding up the fan cord so tight that it felt like it was going to cut it in half. SO i went the safe rout and routed it out the back and back in so that I could restrict the amount of cable hanging in the case.

    Ah, that way. It still looks 10x better than my first try and almost as good as how I have it now.


    Sooo, I have a question now.
    I was thinking about getting 2 WD caviar blacks 500GB to go in RAID0 for my games and putting these 2 2TB caviars I have now in RAID1 for storage. Sounds a little safer than 2x2TB in RAID0 :P
    Mobo in use is a Asus P8P67 Deluxe, it is possible to make a RAID0 and a RAID1 on the same controller, right? The 2x2TB will go into the SATA2 ports and the 2x500GB will go into the SATA3 ports.

    I think it looks quite good for your first attempt. Quite good indeed.

    Once I get everything set when I do my upgrades into my HAF912, I'll be posting pics here. My current case is god awful, but I'm not moving stuff until it is time for me to upgrade again.

    I have heard some pretty nasty rumors about WD recently. Oh well GL. Ty for the awesome posts. Building the comp was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. All the nightmare scenarios that could have happened were washed away by Paul from Newegg's awesome videos haha.

    That radiator makes that behemoth of a case look smaller than it actually is.

    lol yeah. Btw, its REALLY hard to install pull fans by yourself. I put the three Artic fans up top, and depending on temps ill probably put 3 air penetrators for push.

    Only problem so far: I've installed the reservoir in the 5.25" bays, but now I can't remember what setting I had the D5-vario on XD
