I got impatient, so I booted it up. The motherboards onboard debugging LED display showed no errors, I think it got past POST (No beeps), and all the fans and case accessories are working well. Forgot to plug in KB/M

It's looking like a computer, good job. Know that they make round IDE cables as well.

C2G GO!MOD - IDE / EIDE cable - UDMA 66/100/133 - 40 pin IDC (F) - 40 pin IDC (F) - 2 ft - molded, rounded - UV-blue at TigerDirect.com

Also seeing how short the cables are if you flip the PSU over then maybe all the power cables will run straight to the back panel and out the closest hole to the device.....just thinking?

I'll sort out cable management when it becomes an issue, the side panel covers the bottom part of the chassis anyway.
It has booted to BIOS, working perfectly, temp outside case ~23 degrees and the CPU is at 27 degrees celcius. This seem normal?

NB: Dont forget to Image your drive, once you have everything up and running!! Its a lot easier to restore an image, than re-install your OS..

+1 to that.
Load all drivers, load all updates, load all software and AV programs and create your settings in all then image your drive and create a repair disk.

I think I'm finished now, everything is installed. I'm going to go over everything again and then test

And yes, that is an IDE cable... IDE optical drive not SATA. Oh well
