@Flareside: Looks clean! Is there an exhaust fan right above the CPU cooler? LEDs have me believe there is. Just don't see CPU coolers pointed upwards often.
Compressed air without a vacuum = dust in your face. You don't want that.
Or do as I do and use a compressor in the garage Careful for moisture (especially oil) though.

The angle... yes... For some reason it just fits in this way. The way it is right now there is no pressure on the chip and not on the plate in the back of the case. if i would put it in on a perfect angle there would be a lot of pressure being put on the motherboard but the GPU so i decided to keep it this way. ps this is caused by the fact that the part wich goes into the back of the pc (god knows how its called) is a bit off. manufraction error i guess. but i did not find this a reason to go and replace it.
and on the cable management: This took me about 2kilometers of Tiewraps(Zipties?) But i managed. Once i was finished i was fairly proud of myself especially knowing that this was my first self-build.
I did not overclock it (yet). Only reason i would overclock is to make an older pc run new games and software, And OC'ing will not be needed on this pc for another 3-4 years is my estimate. I don't like to OC for fun.
By the way, what temps do you guys have in your pc's? mine doesn't go over 39 celcius under gaming load. And thats really good IMO.

Kind of messy but here it is. Ignore the vodka bottles
