Looks much better. You can still do something about the IO panel cables though, I just ran mine straight down the back of the motherboard tray and taped them in place.

Do you mean the big clump of cables at the top (for USB, etc.) or the wires for the power led's and whatnot? Because the ones for the buttons aren't long enough to do that, I already tried re-routing them.

If you mean the USB cables, then I agree, I'm ok with where they are, but eventually they need to be tucked away. I'll figure something out.

What's the typical thickness of a plexi/acrylic case? I was thinking of drawing up some plans for one and estimating the cost.

EDIT: I want a project, so don't tell me to go buy one

You might take a look here for case specs:

I'm talking about the power LED's, power button, etc. Run them across the top of the HDD cages. That gives you more to work with, allowing you to hide them much better.

Thanks Cabbs. It looks a lot better now. I should be getting my SATA cables tomorrow, I might try to do the same thing with them (if I can get them to fit in that little slot). If not, I will rout them so they go to the end of the motherboard tray, then go behind it and then down to the hdd cage. That way only about 3" of the cables are showing.

Edit: I just bought a couple of Yate Loon 120mm White LED fans. I found a site that has them for $5 each with free shipping.

Nice. Petra's has them for around $20, which would be the same.
