Sorry for the double post. In order to post pics I was requried to have at least 1 post. lol

These pictures were before the 8800GT was installed.
You can see the puny 8500GT in it's place. Piece of junk.

Oh my... you need to do a better job. Simply take one wire at a time, and find a way to "hide" it. It takes time, but it's worth it - especially since the 8800GT will dump alo to heat inside your case, and good airflow is needed to evacuate that heat.

You'll have to put up some before and after pics too. Looking forward to seeing what you have done.

you've got lots of work to do man, I look for the 'rate my cables' thread on hardforum.com for ideas on where to place my wires, and it really works.

on a side note :

VTEC kicked in,yo :P
