Pretty nice.  Hows the build coming?  I got that cpu, its awesome.  Overclocked up to 4.05 no probs.  And those 5750s are nice for the price.  Got a friend with one of those

Thank god!  There are finally pictures in this section again!  I'm OCD with my cables, so I'm holding back a cringe, but it looks solid none the less.  What do you think of the case? By that question, I mean that I'm curious of what the cable management is like  and ease of hiding cables etc.

This case didnt have very good cable management. Couldnt run the cables behind the motherboard.

You should use black zip ties and more of them lol

I see a few spots where you can clean things up. :-P
