AHH! ZE WIRES! Too short to run them behind the motherboard tray?

Anyway, looks cool.

yeah, im using my old PSU atm since my GX650 got damaged when my surge protector broke.

when i get it replaced the cables are long enough to run up behind the mobo tray, until then i have to make do with cable ties. However, its a little worse in those pics than usual since i was untying everything to get a molex over to where the inverter is.

a few dozen ties and one less IDE DVD drive later:

Why not red cathodes to match the HAF932 theme? You have to watch out though. Most "red" cathodes are pink or orange. Red seems to be a hard color to replicate.

This seems to be the right thing here, but it's awfully expensive...

Logisys TRUE-COLOR red 12"

EDIT: And I see why it's expensive. It's inverter-less. I don't really mind the inverters as I never use more than two bars, and the TJ07 has plenty of space to mount/hide it.
