Yeah I kno, got loadsss of wires everywhere.

I used jigsaw, thick perspecs, and rivots. And that white stuff is just tape, makes it look better. I need to get little tiny specs of paint of the perspecs though. At first I had to repaint it because I gave it bare scratches. I wanted to do this instead of buying a new one. Very good fun. And if all goes wrong, just buy a new one. You cant lose. God fun though. Good luck if you try it.

Wow you really need to clean up the cables. Dont just tape it to the case, run it behond the motherboard tray and also try to mount the hard drive backwards so you can hide those cables better. If uou want to go crazy sleeve the cables. I did it and I must say it was a pain in the ass but it makes it look a lot better.

yeah your wires makes the inside look all ugly. As for the letters, they are ok. I bet there is some tool out there can make it look neater, but nice job

I thought to do the same thing too, but then I chose not to since I'm getting a new case anyway because this one just sucks (very small, not very good airflow, no places for fans) And since I'm going to sell this to someone (if I can) then it's best not to brake the case.
