You did a great job in cable management and you have the proof too! 6*C, that's amazing. You went from a hot, too hot overclock to one that can run 24/7.

As for your cable management cases, I like your idea. Maybe one day a case manufacturer will actually listen to us builders and create a case that will suit our needs.

thx John. i was inspired by the pics i saw of other ppl's much neater cable managed cases. some of those look so neat and tidy they are like works of art! when i began my cable cleaning i had no idea where to start it was such a mess. so i unplugged everything and started from scratch. and reconnecting them from a bottom to top sequence (basically cables that made most sense being below other cables were done before other cables like the video card power cables -- these were last).

in all it took me a good two or three hours i think. time well spent for sure.
