Zip Ties and rubber bands are your friend.

Looks nice though I can barely see through the jungle of wires without my machette.

Yeah... That case is fairly short (Height) so the cables are going to bunch up at some point. Which seems to be right next to his HS&FAN.

lol - I know exactly what happened Guitar.. You were so excited to get it up and running that you just slapped it together. Which at this point isn't hat bad because, now that everything is up and running, you can pull it all apart and piece it back together in stages.

Guitar, i added you to my buddy list on AIM and i've sent you a TF PM. So when ever you're ready, i'll give you some advice on cleaning that beast up... Later

3 important things to keep case clean:

1. Zip Ties/Rubber Bands
2. Cable Sleeving
3. Running cables BEHIND the motherboard plate.

Personally I think your build looks pretty clean right now, all you really need to do is tie up some cables.
