Here's my humble attempt. It's a real temporary build before I head off to grad school for the next 10 years of my life. Then I will make a super build.

Not bad for a case without room behind the plate, but use cable ties.

Thanks.

But I feel the problem with zip ties is that whenever you have to remove a wire or change your config, you almost always have to cut it off. I prefer to use this instead: http://www.officemax.com/catalog/ima...873260i_01.jpg

First is your ram in the right slots? It usually is ram space ram space.

2. eek them twist ties have metal in them.... get zip ties 2 bucks for 50.. you rarely change things

YOUre other issue is the un-sleeved cabling, someone above had some nice slip on sleeving that'd really keep thing together.

I followed my MOBO manual. It clearly stated that if you have two sticks, place them like so.
