Very tidy job mate! Nice 1
Your mobo looks tiny in there compared to your last case and you've got plenty of room "IF" you decide to add a second gpu

It couldn't get any tidier mate, very clean!

That looks really good, Paul. Great job. A suggestion, if your cables are long enough. If you can do with 3 hard drives, take the bottom cage out. There is space on the front for a 140mm fan and a 120mm fan. You could take either the top or bottom cage out, depending on the length of the tubes from the Antec and mount it there maybe. I've taken mine completely apart and it's easy. If you want to try, let me know.

I just can't seem to take a good picture of it, it's a pain it the ass, it looks considerably nicer than it does in the pics. I will try and take some better ones soon when the light is better.

This thing weighs a ton now it has all the parts fitted I tell you!


Paul.
My first thought was, "Finished? Like heck! Where are the cables?" Wow! Excellent cable management! Even the individually sleeved cables, which I normally do not like, do not dominate.

@ Ryan, thanks, yeah the motherboard looks tiny in this case, there is too much space above it for my liking, it will finish it off with a nice dual rad I recon.

@ Steve, Thanks for the comments always appreciated, do you think it looks silly with the rad there? Like I said, I was really unsure where to put it. I am not 100% on if the tubes would be long enough to move it to the front, they might be, but the plan is to get a dual rad cooler such as the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme hopefully within a month or so, so I think I can live with it where it is for now.

@ Lady F, thank you very much for the kind words, that is a real compliment coming from you as I know you like to keep cables tidy!

I have temporarily put in my 2 cold light cathodes from my old case just to light things up a bit. I will definitely be ordering an NZXT LED light kit next Friday which should make it look a lot nicer.

No, Paul, not at all. It looks good where it is. You just mentioned moving it and I was trying to give an option. You've done a great job, the wirng is great, what little you can actually see. As good a job as can be done. The only problem is the blue LEDs. It would be faster if they were red.

This may sound radical but have you considered white LEDs? They would allow all your components to clearly show up instead of being washed out by just one color (although I will admit that I like a blue glow).

Paul that space above the mobo will be and is ideal for your new NZXT Kraken X60 280mm rad so start planning for it now....lol. Case looks great and I run both blue and white lights in my white case and it looks really nice. So nice I will have to rethink much later a new place for my case as it's to my left and can only be seen when craning to look....drag.

Damn right.
White or blue sounds good, one of us had some sort of white LED spotlights, I forget who.
