thanks guys, and already updated the sig

i encoded a movie today and my jaw dropped. a shear 9 minutes, compared to my dads pentium d laptop, which take 2 hours

only problem with the cable managment is that i cant put the side panel on, on the backside, the corsair has ALOT of wires

haha i bet

For the side panel, what I'd do is take all those extra wires and put them in one big bunch, zip tie them and put them in the bottom of the case under where the harddrives go. Looks like you might have enough room.. and hopefully that'll give you the clearance you need to get that side panel on.

Nice dude, you definitely needed an upgrade. What i5 are you running?

You should rotate the rear exhaust fan to the right so the wire isn't running across the front of it.
