Thinking of routing cables.

I absolutely have to have the cables tie wrapped out of the way. They don't have to be perfect, just secured and not obstructing the air flow. Well, with my current build, after getting all the hardware, I spent about 3 hours carefully assembling it and tie wrapping all the wires at a nice leisurely pace. I figured I would have it all ready so that the following evening I could fire it up and concentrate on installing the OS. So, the following night comes along. I had the computer completely assembled and plugged in with the mouse and keyboard attached. I hit the on button...absolutely nothing. As it turns out, it was a bad power supply, DOA. It has [since] been repaired under warranty and works perfectly. Remember all the nice tie wraps that I installed...all for nothing. I had to cut off just about all of them to replace the power supply with a spare in order to play with my new system.

And the moral of the story is that sometimes you are better off making sure all the parts work before taking the time to add a couple dozen tie wraps!

Snapped some more pics. I took the mesh off, and stuffed (again, did a better job this time) the PSU cables underneath the tray it sits on (intake 'honeycombs' are in the front end and the exhaust fan is on the back, so no airflow is being sacrificed).
I may not get LED fans, I like it the way it is now.

Well, it's not nearly as nice a most others here, but the wiring is secure and, for the most part, out of the air flow.
