A nice case will look like crap with bad wire management, regardless.

on a good case, you it really dosent matter. Unless your a dummy, and place the cables over the fans.

Thats all I care on cable management to be honest.

it still makes your case look nice on the inside.

just because you have a junk heap of a car with a good paint job doesn't mean it's nice :|

Maybe this might convince you... you'll get a worse overclock if your wire management stinks

I agree, but to get better temps, you just have to do some easy work.

Unlike most of you that do it perfect for like 2 hours straight.

Wayyyy more than 2 hours...

Besides, I'd rather something I have to look at for god knows how many hours a day, at least look good.
