    Practical reason is airflow. Real reason is probably airflow and looks. I know I spend hours on cable management purely for looks.

    I spent about 3 or 4 hours on cable management when I swapped my Define XL and Define R3 a couple weeks ago. D:

    I spent most of the time looking at the backplate going "NO I DON'T LIKE THAT! *snip* "

    And rerouting everything.

    I did that about 5 times. @_@

    The best part is the LED on/off switch and variable brightness (dim to christmas). I know most cases these days come with those for LED fans, but most LED fans suck in terms of pressure/dba :P

    Haha, a few of my fans are red already, but they're just weak and one of those would really fit the red/black theme I'm trying to pull off.

    If you do not already have an SSD it will be a noticable upgrade, perhaps get the SSD and safe some more for the GPU?
    Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

    Go with this IMO, an SSD really is a noticeable change.

    OT: I was tempted to buy a 7950/s today, but I snapped out of it and saved some money instead and bought the nzxt red led kit to spice up my case, of course that means I have to sort out the mess that are the cables in my case lol, and I gotta find a way to stop these graphics cards from sagging.

    Just installed my new 140mm Akasa AK-195 fan with white LED's

    Pic (also of my complete setup actually):




    Also I'm considering replacing my 2 120mm fans on my H100 with some white LED fans too, although I can't decide if it's gonna be too light and if it's gonna blind me :P. It would probably look awesome as hell, but I'm still not sure.

    Nice Stryker.

    I found some lights to properly shine up my rig with while I take pictures, yay. No, I'm staying the heck away from installing anything resembling LEDs and such within the case itself. Just the debug LED, glowing Asus logo and some other small accent lights is more than enough for me. Maybe a soft white...

    The SSD is just using velcro. Perhaps too much velcro, because I damn well nearly snapped off the cover on top trying to remove it last time.

    What, do you mean the cable management? Or the blue sleeving? Those are cable sleeves, you can do it yourself if you have the time, patience and tools. OR you can grab Corsair's sleeved kits for their PSU's...wish all PSU makers did this....I suspect that's what Drunken is running (no offense if you sleeved those yourself Drunken!):
