That is one clean looking setup! Obvious that planning and effort went into it.

Very nice.

Thanks!
Also a lot of time just getting it to that point. 3-4 hours a night for 3-4 days.

It is crazy how time consuming these things can be.
This is my first time sleeving cables, so i had to learn how to do that, though not that complicated, figuring out the right size heat shrink and getting the sleeving the proper length.Getting the wrong part and having to wait to get another part etc.
Then the prep time into painting everything added up fast.

Man would it be nice if I could get my tower looking like that without getting a new case and a modular PSU. Very good stuff micro.

Thanks.
My psu is not modular either btw.
Some times all it takes is a little effort and spray paint.
Get some inspiration by going to websites and looking at how people have modded their pc cases, and take a day and just try it out.

Sleeving is about $20. (Ebay)
Paint the inside of your case can be as little as $5-10 etc.(primer and paint)
Even just start with zip ties ($3 at Walmart)

This is the first time i have gone this extreme. That is only because i have been waiting 2+ years for a good deal on a good case. I got it half price or i would still be using my old cramped case that i couldn't close the side on due to all of the wires.
