Oh come on. You have to fold / crunch for us now.

As for your cable management, the backside looks fine, but the inside your be better. Always think to run one cable at a time, and ask the same question: can I hide more of that cable by routing it somewhere else.

Yeah I was mentioning the back...lots of room there to work with.

The inside is better than mine right now lol. Sometimes takes a little patience to route all the cables and the best way as 3.0 said is to carefully do one at a time. The HAF has lots of holes and space to do a great job.

If you fold for us you get a fancy folding tag and the adulation of many women...

Gav will get you your folding tag after they find a wu with HWC...welcome to the team!

Used to play online games but I don't have the time to get any good at them. The last online game I played was Tribes 2 and at first I was alright, but I only played a hour or two a week and then whenever I jumped on I was the victim of headshots practically upon immediately joining lol. Wow looked like a lot of fun but then I remembered how noob I would be lol

Looks like you knew where to ask for one - as soon as your 1st WU has been crunched / folded for Team HardwareCanucks - Team 54196, a tag will be added.
