That is really a nice setup. That case is great. I have the same problem with the cables. I just do a little cleanup everytime I open the case. It will eventually get cleaned up.

Squid, that looks to be a fine first build....congrats. The wire management is like the second phase for the first build as it takes a ton of time it's better to let the system settle in and then as mentioned little by little you can pull it apart and run the wires behind things. Sometimes it will require specialized extensions and conversion plugs but as you check it out you will find great ways to hide the PSU and other leads.

Thanks everyone! I had the wires in a much better arrangement when I first put it together but had a little . I had it all put together and was going through my left over parts when I noticed a small bag of "thingies". I was like what in the heck are these? Standoff screws? What are those and where in the heck do they go? Well needless to say (following a google search) I had to take EVERYTHING out and put it back after installing the standoffs so I was a lot less precise on where the wires/cables went since I may have to do it all over again This was a big learning experience for me to say the least!!

Oh how fun would that have been to start up a system without it's stand off's ! Good job as learning is the best part of the whole system build !

I wish you had let me know. I have a "sure fire" plan that eliminates those kind of problems. It has two steps. == First, when I open the box, I throw away the instructions and second, after everything is put together, I throw away the extra parts. No mess, no fuss.

Yes it's an attempt to get some air into the HD cage, I do think it helps a little.
