Thumbs up My wire managment job!

So heres the deal, I wanted to make more room for the inside of my computer and better airflow. I went to a local hardware store and bought flex tubing (blue - 3/8 ", black - 3/4 ") and some cable ties this is what I got.

Before, all the wires were tangled together, doing this mod really did open up the space a little bit in the computer. What do you all think?

looks pretty good. I'd spend 10 or 20 bucks on newegg and get a few IDE round cables. They'll match your wire wrap and improve airflow a little more. They look nice too.


on edit: what brand of computer is that?

System Specs:
Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800

Great FORD TRUCK resource:

i wouldnt want some wires getting too close to your CPU heatsink, buy some rounded IDE cables and shove them somewhere behind the optical drives or behind the mobo.

CLeaner i suppose
