Well, I had a hard time sleeping last night so I decided to do some sleeving. I first had to rewire my green led Thermaltakes from 4 pin molex to 3 pin so I can connect them to my fan controller. I then sleeved them with some cheap sleeving I had laying around. This sleeving won't be visible as these fans are my top exhausts.

Next, I sleeved 4 sata cables and had just enough left over to do my case switch wiring. This was done with some better stuff I ordered from Performance-PCs. The Freezone Elite you see pictured came pre-sleeved with techflex which I purchased recently. This should help somewhat with my cable management.

The paint is now dry and here are a few pics of the assenbled case. No components are installed yet except for the fans. Some of which will be connected to a Zalman ZM-MFC1 fan and light controller. A single green cold cathode will also be part of the build. The fans include;

2X120mm green led Thermaltake Thunderblades (top exhaust to fan controller)
1X120mm green led Coolermaster (front intake to fan controller)
1X120mm Coolermaster (left side intake to fan controller)
1X120mm Coolermaster (bottom intake to mb)
1X80X80X15mm green led Hiper (right side intake to mb)
1X green cold cathode (to fan controller)
1X120mm rear exhaust from Freezone elite.

The exhaust fans will be run at medium speed to reduce noise and maintain a positive pressure inside the case to reduce dust. The 80X80X15mm is mounted behind the right side panel behind the cpu. I hope it doesn't interfere too much with my cable management.

The Green Machine is complete except for a few tweaks. Please keep in mind that this is my first attempt at sleeving and cable management. All in all, I think the rebuild went fine. I found that the CM690 is a great case, but it is a tad small for my taste. I had to do some minor cutting to accomodate the 24pin and 2X6pin behind the motherboard. Also, an 8pin eps extension would have come in handy as well. I will definitely be upgrading to a larger case in the near future. Here are the last of the pics. Any comments positive or negative would be appreciated as I view negative comments as constructive criticism. This way I can learn a bit more for my next build.
