Well, I spent about 5 hours on wire management. 3 of which was the PSU with the wire sleeving. Every single PSU wire is sleeved. Front panel wires are sleeved, all fan wires... all cold cathode wires are sleeved... yeah basically 2 packages of sleeving kits.

It's worth it though... You just need patience.

ya i went through 2 packs of sleeving myself doin mine. i have every single wire done in mine. i did every wire on my Xion psu but then as soon as i got that done i ended up gettin a new power supply anyway..............lol. luckily the wires on the new one were molded so i didnt have to sleeve them.

OK. I've hit a wall with the CPU now. I'm kind new to OCing, so i'm not sure what the next step is. Right now at 2.7Ghz with HTT @ 225 it seems rock solid. If I up the HTT any more it either won't boot or I get BSOD's. What's the next step? I've already up'ed VCORE a bit same result. Should I loosen my ram timings? It's 2.3.2.6 right now. OR may-be try lowering the divider and increasing the HTT more?

for troubleshooting purposes you should use a large divider like 1:2 to keep the memory way down. that way you can find the highest cpu clock without the memory interfering. then work at increasing the memory clock as far as it can go, remembering to test cpu stability with prime95 and memory with memtest86+

lol - yeah, I know... That is the only wire that I couldn't sleeve. It's from the UV cold cathode switch, that we put on the front by the power button. I had enough problems with getting the front panel back on with the front panel wires sleeved. There just wasn't enough room. So that wire just didn't get sleeved. I tried to hide it behind the CC box there, but I guess it's hung down a but during moving it around and stuff.

Oh well, nothing can be perfect. Overall i'm really happy with it.

Originally I had bought two other things from MNPC Tech, a Blow hole w/fan for the top of the case and two handles. But, my brother and I decided not to put either on. The handles just didn't look right... and my brother's dremal was broken and I didn't feel like buying another one.

That's amazing. The whole thing is awesome, I still plan on getting a ful tower at some point.

You did a nice job OC'ing. And that's a killer set-up.
