Looks great! It's amazing how much of a difference a few well placed access holes can make for cable management.

Hopefully case manufacturers are getting the hint. :)

Thanks... I think that some mfgs are seeing the light. I was very impressed by the Coolermaster case, and many cases seem to be coming out with some room on the side and holes for routing.

The really smart companies would have employees reading the modding forums and catching all the good ideas!

I like how the HSF orientation make the heatpipes visible.

What sort of temps do you get out of it a 4ghz?

I'm guessing that most do, especially those based in Asia where the culture is completely different and they need insight into what will sell in the North American market.

Case in point would be the InWin B2 case I had a chance to review. It might not have been everybody's kettle of fish, but they obviously put a lot of thought into the enthusiast market from the ground up.
