yea it is, but it aint going anywhere unless someone hits it hard.

Also, i fixed my internet too! i was having a constant struggle because being that i live in an apartment complex, there is a LOT of interference between routers. out of my modem i get 60mbps download speed. however, over wifi i would be getting an average of 20mbps. less then half. so i rearranged EVERYTHING and eliminated 30' of useless cable and relocated the router. i got about 5-7ms less ping and 60mbps download speed over wifi. also a lot better ping times from PC to router! no more 2mb/s download speed. im cruising at 6-7mb/s!
Folding tables FTW nice audio setup, mines starting bow in the middle now and where my pc sat at the end for a year is now rounded off, need to take a more up to date pic of my desk.

Paul that looks so clean!

What cables, where.
Agreed. And it really does look nice and clean. BTW how'd you manage the PS cables?

And can you post a closer picture so we may better view the system?

Thanks
Thanks for all the comments everyone

Drew I am so bad at taking pictures, they always turn out bad. This is the only one I have saved right now that just about shows the PSU cables going in.
I have some time off work now so I will try and get the lighting a bit better to capture some better quality close up shots

Looks mighty good, Paul.

How do you get the cables to make such a tight turn ?
Do you heat them somehow ?

Paul they have cameras now which have a little light that momentarily illuminates a dark scene.
Placing a table lamp so it lights the innards can work too.

I hope that new builders see Pauls pictures.
They might understand things better when I keep preaching (clean and neat) and cable management for appearance and air flow through the case. Unless your using something like LN all cooling starts with air flow and cable management is a big part of air flow.
Their I go again preaching.

Thanks Bob. Yeah I just chucked the whole PSU in the oven at 200C for an hour lol.
Nar I just pushed all the cables through before and then turned the PSU into place and screwed it in.

Remember to baste it every 20 mins and turn it half way through for extra taste and tenderness

I hope you are kidding. A hairdryer on low is a better idea.

No, I'm not actually. Why would I be kidding ?

I'm on the laptop now as I decided to put the whole 'puter in the oven on low so I can rework all of the cables at once.
