    Fairly immaculate, even with the dust. Impressive job. :thumbup:
    What case was used please?

    I guess yours makes mine a 1 or a 2. :)
    My seven-year-old-but-solid-as-a-rock X58/Xeon X5660 platform in a "new" case (old Fractal Define R5 I got back from the ex... she bought a laptop, to my great relief. :lol:)

    Seriously considering dusting off all my old custom WC hardware for the summer.
    But... do I get busy and mod one of my old cases, or cheat and buy new WC-ready case...?? :confused::lol:

    Nice intro :thumbup: I love braided cables!

    I love it even more now :D
    Looks nice and clean with the cover mate :thumbup:

    Depending on your setup that case should be a decent option.

    Nice and tidy cable wise though :thumbup:

    Was it X48 or 58 that were the first i7 (Nehalem) boards?

    Help my cables are a mess :)

    Built this baby over the last few days, really want to get the inside tidy.

    Slight Iron Man theme in a Phanteks P400S Red Case.

    I would prefer to not spend too much more money for the time being, so I'll need a cheap option to sleeve the PSU cable and PCIE cables, any suggestions?

    Cheap set of extensions and hide the mess under the shroud? You can get them for like $30 if that's not too much. Otherwise you could paint the ketchup and mustard and pull the gpu cables tight behind the tray.

    Nice. I didn't realise you could get extensions for the bottom wires? Or is that a DIY mod?

    There are a few brands now, Phanteks also does their own extensions. One thing worse check is PCCG as they get their own custom designs from cable mod which are a bit more interesting or have more unusual colours than the standard Cablemod sets, although I think they might have stopped getting them as there only seems to be 6 pin cables available at the moment.

    Love the monochrome theme. Very neat and tidy, but "showy" also. No use me posting mine, I use a laptop. Cable managed from the factory!

    Ive always been a less is more modder when it came to cables.... but hey i still remember orac3................:shock:

    Was digging through my archives (some of these are maybe 15yrs old) and found these old skool WC rigs they don't hold up to hard tubing of today but there was a lot to be said for soft tubing and cable management if you could work it!

    Those are so freaking cool man, that res mounted in the back of the case is so creative. Most of these are just amazing by today's standards too, especially the Supreme Commander rig, thanks for sharing!

    WOW just WOW, isnt it amazing how far custom PC's have come. The Supreme Commander build has held up though!

    I hope the the big mouth induction front panels come back into fashion :D
