    Np! It definitely cleans things up and takes several rather unnecessary cables out of the equation.

    Have you actually thought of taking out any excess front panel cables you don't need?

    Like I completely removed the following cables from the whole equation: eSATA, Firewire, reset sw, hdd led, and power led. It really cleans things up. :P Here's what the back of my case looks like where all the cables are routed:

    You can see where I bundled up the reset, hdd, and power led cables because I couldn't actually pull them out, without seriously having to possibly break part of the top front panel just to access where they are plugged in, so I just bunched them up in a nice clean circular form and let the power sw go down to the motherboard.
    Haha I knew I forgot about a part of that song! Thank Deltrus, I never got to finish the build as I started working again hardcore. But I am starting it up again. I need to get the rest of the wires sleeved to match, the top 2 blue fans that I ordered last night, 3 day shipping for free from Newegg on them, I never got around to putting my H70 in there, as well as upgrading my shitty "I like to run hot at idle" 470 as well as adding in a SSD.

    As far as removing the excess cables, I NEVER open my back panel :P So that does not bother me currently.

    Here was the finishing look after I swapped out the Red for the Blue.



    I only did the Blue to match my keyboard and mouse :P

    I too barely ever open the back panel, but I just had to go badass route and thus I opted to take stupid cables out. :P

    Ahhh! Top fans! Mine need to hurry up now! I wish my Naga would light up Red, and I would have stuck with the Red.

    But you do KNOW the colors :P

    I sit with my PC to my right, so I see everything going on inside. I had the G15, and swapped to a G510 just so I can be able to swap LED colors. My G15 is now used by my girlfriend, which was the primary reason I upgraded.

    Because for some reason imgur.com and, in fact, a lot of other sites, for some inexplicable reason won't load their CSS files and various small things, breaking exactly all of them usually. This issue has stayed across all the browsers I've tried, through several reboots and more.

    Why'd you go with the 2550K? I've read that they perform the exact same as the 2500K when both are overclocked... But that may be wrong.

    It was a free upgrade from 2500k.

    The only thing separating the two is the 2550k has a feature removed.
    Can't say that's an upgrade, myself.

    Because it's a pre-built system and some of them come with this 2550k chip as a "free upgrade" and no option to pick 2500K. No IGP, not sure that's a big deal to most gamers and I guess it also clocks 100MHz higher but of course that wont change much if you overclock.

    Your PSU is more than enough power, don't worry.

    It's not much of a gaming rig anymore, but this is the (ancient) computer my dad's been using to play X-Wing and Tie Fighter on so I guess it counts as a "gaming rig" (it also used to be the PC we had our printer hooked up to up until a year ago):


    (I know the picture quality is kinda crappy, taken with my phone camera)

    I don't know the exact specs, but I know it's a Dell from sometime in the 90's, pretty sure it's running Windows 98. It has a Pentium II processor (Slot 1... and passively cooled), a single stick of RAM (can't tell what kind it is, or how much it has), an ATI graphics card (AGP based, not sure the exact model though) and yes, those are ISA slots at the bottom of the motherboard... the standard before legacy PCI was standard (the modem is in one of them) Thought it was kinda cool to see some old hardware like that and knowing it still works.
