    Nice setup jsnxx, love the cold cathodes :P, also, where'd you pick up the cable sleeving kit? I'm considering sleeving my cables in black, but I'm having a bit of trouble sourcing some...
    @Zalith, lol I too thought he had some kind of wicked watercooling setup at first ^^
    I'm not sure if it'll work out cheaper or not for you, but here in SA computer parts and accessories are hellishly expensive, so I buy everything online...

    One of the cheapest and best range of braided sleeving I've found was over at CableOrganizer.com, here are the two pages I've got bookmarked for when I have money to buy: black sleeving and coloured sleeving. Hope that helps...
    Cheers mate, I'm bookmarking these for when I have the cash to throw at my rig
    Also, I kinda know what you mean about riddiculous pricing for components... The nearest major town to me (Gympie) has quite a few PC shops, and nearly all of them have markups from anywhere between 35 and 60% more than shops in other towns... the only way I was able to get my hardware at a reasonable price was travel an hour and a half down the coast.

    @HILLBILLY - some ebay store in the states. I'll go through my history later this arvo & find the name. I'll be needing some more soon as my boss has given me permission to make an entire case from acrylic for my work pc.

    Sorry for the lateness mate, been on the PS3 since i got home yest.

    Do you buy much off the net? I live in a fairly big city & the 2 or 3 dedicated pc stores we have, have jack stock when it comes to mods, so i generally buy over the net. I guess postage up to there would be a killer though. I do arrange pick up with 2 stores i use though.

    Managed to find the store so here is their 'sleeving' items.
    eBay Australia Store ? AEROCOOLER: Search results for sleeving.

    hmm, define 'Buy'... I ordered my current hardware online from Umart Sunshine Coast then paid and collected the next day. With regards to modding stock, they also are limited, so ordering over the net and paying postage won't be a problem at all I don't think (unless the postage fee ends up being riddiculous...).
    Also, cheers for the link.

    A little before and after of my cable management


    All over the floor. Then a little more neatly tucked in the desk. Router gets it's own spot. Although I need to figure something better with the power plugs at my UPS. I have them velcro strapped, but I want a better solution. I'd be welcome to suggestions. Anyways what have some you guys done for cable management? I wish I could build a rack for my tower on top and the rest on the bottom with cable management built in.

    Yeah that first pic I have my router on my desk. I moved it during my cable clean up to a separate shelf to the far right of my tower. I moved the UPS and comcast modem into the desk enclosure and that black box on the floor is my sub-woofer.
