    @Littlejay, A Guy, WordsWorth, thank you guys!

    @NoN, thank you. Only LEDs right now are the ones from the Corsair H100i and mobo (phase leds). I have a 4ft strip of white LEDs, but I have yet to decide on how to install them.

    Cheers,

    Juan your back side looks fine to me.

    I got some extensions and didn't use them, first because of the extra length to fool with, second, my PSU cables were long enough. Good job overall!
    Thanks Gary.
    My PSU cables are long enough too, but I just like the way individually sleeved extensions look.

    Cheers,

    Dave,
    Thank you.
    BIOS is proving quite a challenge! Will let you guys know when I succeed in OC'ing.

    Alan,
    Thanks a lot.
    Following some of your previous advice I got some LEDs. Will post some pics after installing.
    Now it looks like I'm going to need advice on how to OC this mobo and CPU and on how to get second video card up and running.

    Cheers,

    I like them too but ended up wrapping with electric tape.

    I personally don't like the individually sleeved cables; they look too bulky for my tastes. My feeling is the idea is to hide the cables, not make them more obvious. But, that's me. I took a felt pen to my PSU cables that weren't easily resleeved to blacken the colored wires.

    @Gary, that's a nice looking rig!

    @Lady Fitzgerald, individually sleeved extensions not only look good but are much more flexible, bendable, than PSU cables. It is much easier to get them connected and they put less stress on mobo and video card connectors... But again, tastes are tastes...

    Cheers guys. Thanks for all your help and advice.

    Hi Guys.
    So here it is at last.
    After many an hour of work I finished it.
    No matter how much I tried, just coudn't make the backside look any better.
    Also, the thing wouldn't boot when I added the second video card, so I'm running on one till I have more time to experiment.
    Hope you like it.
    Cheers,

    Bungee, that's a totally amazing job you have done there, it looks fantastic, very neat cables and really clean job

    You should be very pleased with yourself!

    Granted, they would be more flexible but the stock cables can be pre-bent/shaped so, when plugged in, they won't stress anything.

    Btw, I wasn't picking on your rig specifically (bad wording on my part; yours looks good); I just don't like individually sleeved cables. As you said, tastes are tastes and I'm obviously in the minority. :)
