That is pretty much all i could do to make it better, other then modding the case of course.

much improvement. about a 9.4/10, like others have said fix the wires going to the fan. also get some black sata cables and the mobo power is a good bit obvious, also get rid of that green zip tie thing on the GPU power replace it with a clear or black one

^hehe, you don't like my green zip ties? lol....the pack i got came with black, green, and red ones. I was only using the back and red ones and i was running out of them, so i needed to start using green. As for the 24 pin, i would need to drill threw the mobo tray to make it any better, and i don't really feel like drilling into a $170 case at the time being lol. The red sata cables also kinda go with my colour scheme (which is black and red)

^lol good for you mate. I just don't see the point, the wire management is good enough. I modded my old case for it, and it was kinda just a waste of time, so i got a little bit better cable management. I don't really care for it unless it is restricting air flow. The only reason i try to do it so neat is for this thread.

Except for the bunch of white wires above the optical drive. nope that ain't a 10/10, mebbe a 9.8/10. He's done a great job with the water cooling.
