@mtommy79 - apart from that clump of wire and that lone 200mm fan wire from the mobo, that build is sweet!

LOL! My original intention for the ODDs was #1. But I have to start with the second slot. It's an extremely tight fit on the first slot (ie. i have to apply a lot of force to get it in). It'll have to wait 'til I get the extension and y-cables. Oh well, I ended up calling my rig the 'Panda'. :) Zebra didn't sound as nice...

Wow everyone has such nice builds. Most look really clean and well managed.
I am still really confused on what parts I should get for my $1200 build :\
Maybe you guys could suggest a build?

P.S Addison you make me laugh. First you talk about World of Warcraft, and then you talk about being in real life combat. Seriously? That is funny.

Well, I spent some time reworking the wires. Unfortunately, the Raven 2 Evolution case doesn't have that much play room behind the MoBo. This is the best I can get it without it taking any real force or causing the side panel to 'bulge' when closed. I had to rewire the SATA power cables in through the front, then behind the MoBo to get it where it's supposed to go without stressing the cables. Also rearranged the placement of the front ODDs.

Well, I think it's an improvement...

(Moderator, if I 'violated' rules here, please feel free to remove this post. Sorry).

thanks neograndizer. I like your build a lot :)
Mind passing me the specs and maybe even how much you payed for it all?
I know I am taking a gtx 570 sounds like a really good card.
You plan to sli in the future or no?

Great job with the wires. I need to buy some extension cables and sleeve for my rig too.
