I'm not too worried about mine though because I have a cold cathode. I'm going to be cutting some holes in the case in a few weeks to vastly improve my wire management, and then I'll post some pics. I might paint it black when I do, I haven't decided yet.

if you paint the inside of the case white, it will reflect more light, but also the case creates natural shadows on the inside so it almost looks black unless its really lit up.

Oh god, you guys are gonna have a field day with mine lol, it's nothing pretty. I have sooooo much wiring that I dont use, and there's no room for it in this case. This thread just inspired me to spend about an hour rearranging all my wiring. I even modded my 92mm Tornado which I thought was useless to fit my heatsink while I was at it. Now my load temps are wayyyy down . Anywho, here it is:

Nice, lol. Might want to get some zip-ties or twist ties and tie up those wires. If you can that is. Otherwise, seems like the airflow would be clear of any disruptions. :happy:

Yeah that was my main concern, I have 2 intake fans on the front which were pretty much useless before. I have an 80mm Tornado just above the hard drive on the front, a blue led Aspire generic fan next to it which is still useless (other than the blue light, maybe it cools the wiring in front of it?), and another 80mm Tornado on the top of the case. There's also a 80mm blue led Aspire on the side panel that I use as an intake. Flow between all those is what I wanted to clear up. That whole space below the cd-rom was FILLED with the extra wiring before hand.

if you can flip that HDD that would help and try and get some wire sleeves for those wires up top and around the mother board that should help them "blend" into the case more. and just zip tie away

btw 8.3/10

Front panel - Always intake.
Side panel - Usually intake.
Bottom panel - Intakes again.
Rear panel - Always exhaust.
Top Panel - Always exhaust.

IMO.
