    Yes, cable management was the next thing on my list. I can't find the SilverStone Decathlon power supplies for sale anywhere. I'm going to have to either open up my current PSU, cut the cables down, or just make custom PCIe and SATA cables. I could order from the states, but thats gonna cost me. :(

    I get 38-40 load temps depending on the room temperature, for both the video cards and CPU. Those tests are done separately, I don't know what the temps are when both the CPU and video are under load. How might I test that? Orthos + ATItool?

    New Update
    Well my PC decided to blue screen every time I tried to play a game so I decided to get off my ass and work on my pc. I also installed those low noise adapters that come with Noctua's. The airflow on the S12s is noticeably lower, but still good enough to push air around the case. They are also dead silent. The P12s are also very silent, I can't hear them over the SB fan. My temps were only affected by a few Celsius.

    I got this little guy a while ago, but I didn't want to remove my mobo just to install it. I decided to lap it cause it had xbox hueg gouges in it.

    Cable Management
    I was tired of the 8pin CPU connector flopping around in my case. So I cut a little hole with my dremel. Very tight fit, it almost didn't reach the connector on the mobo. I also tidied up the rest of the cables, still a bit of work to do, but that'll have to wait for after the paint.

    HDD Mounting
    Still needs holes for the cables, but you get the idea.
