tw33k,
It's going to be a fine system and don't worry the cable management will come to you as you install the new PSU. I think if you pull the sata cable off the Asus over to the PSU and run then cable tied to where they will duck behind the board or into their drives it will look great. But already with out any of those tweeks.......get it......it looks real clean.

Thanks man, that's a good idea! I got a 200mm fan for the back of the HDD cage but it's too big. I might get another 120mm Kaze Ultra (those are incredible) and wedge it between the fan controller and the BD Rom (I'll have to measure it but it should fit)

That looks much better, very clean look

You have it planned out for the new PSU, will make the switch out easier.

Thanks Dave. This is the first time I've really bothered with proper cable management and it's hard work. Yeah, adding the new PSU shouldn't be that difficult now I know what I'm doing (I hope anyway)
In those pics, I have the CPU cooler the wrong way round. I fixed it so now the rear fan (intake) blows cool air i and the CPU fan sucks it thru and out the top exhaust.

Hmmm.... I don't think so, Tw33k has the Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P, while you've got the ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO. The 790 has a 16x and 8x, the 785 has a 16x and 4x.

Practice makes perfect! Lol.. Just think of this PSU as a 'cable management trial run', when you get the new one, then it'll be the real deal.

By the way, if you do find the cables are a bit short and you have some unused space that you can hide cables in... What about getting some of NZXT's cable extensions? They look pretty awesome, and they come already sleeved. NZXT :: Unique. Unprecendented. Inspired - Product
