Wow, that is very well done. How did you hide all the PSU cables? I am guessing there is something between the mobo and the side panel right?

The drive cages sit ~25mm (1") inside the side panel, plenty of room for cabling plus the psu is modular so no unwanted cabling.

I also usually remove plugs and drill holes in the case internals if it means keeping wiring out of sight. Using everything SATA helps, no bulky IDE cables, SATA power cabling is smaller too.

When i overclock my CPU above 2.24Ghz it will not boot into windows. It freezes into the process of booting into vista. Dose that mean i have reached my limit or dose that mean if i wanted to overclock more i would have to raise my voltage by about um... 0.1v? if i was going to raise my voltage should i wait until i get a better heat sink?
