He has the case closed in a few pictures. You can assume (or hope) that he has a decent cooling system in it.

Btw - Specs?

Same! HOPEFULLY ordering the parts tonight. Maybe we'll both have good luck. Is this going to be your first build?

May-be one day we can teach you some wire management techniques.
Clean up all others (Red, Yellow, Black) wires and tighten it up a bit inside.

lol- your first build, though... you don't care. As long as it works right.

His case is pretty neat IMO. I could use those lessons though...my case looks like...i dont know, i dont have words to describe how messy my cable situation is. Lets just say its pretty bad

No it looks fine really.

I'm just super anal about wiring. I like everything hidden and wire tied. I go a bit overboard sometimes. It makes removing things a P.I.T.A too.

Wire Management takes patience... Lot's of sleeving and wire ties.
I usual take the cases completely apart and hide wires like the front panel wires on the back side of the case, the motherboard side, so they come out right in the bottom right hand corner where the front panel connectors are.

It's kinda fun... There's a good wire sleeving tutorial on TF. It's a good read.

Im the same way about the wires, it drives me nuts if their all in a mess. The easiest way to do it, I think is to put everything on round cables, and buy a PSU thats already sleeved. Then you can sleeve up the misc wires like the fans n junk. Hiding them is takes a little work though.

sorry to get off topic, but what does sleeving actually do?

Since some people had asked about specs and cost I put them in the first post as I should have already. And thanks for the good reviews guys.

Overall it's mostly for looks. But if it's done right, it will lessen the area that the wires take up, increasing airflow.
