    Turned out pretty good. Did my best with cable management in this ten year old gaming case.
    Spec's:

    Ryzen 3 2200G OC'd to 3.85Ghz, ASUS B450, GSkill Aegis 16GB DDR4 2666 OC'd to 2933 stable. 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD, Geforce GT1030. It turned out to be a good budget build for under $450. I donated the GT 1030 and SSD to the build.This is going to be a local teachers son's first gaming PC. Wanted to make a solid impression on the world of PC gaming.

    Looks good @copiertech25.
    In the old cases(or even the new ones that come with "off-the-shelf" Walmart typ PCs), cable management just means keep the cables away from the fans. I know from my old Lenovo H530

    If you didn't cut your skin while doing the cables... you did a good job

    I don't own a camera, or a smartphone, so I took this with my webcam... sorry

    Until my 32GB of Trident RGB RAM gets here, this is what I have so far
    I need to order come cable combs, now that I know how many, and the size also.
    I still need to hide some of the smaller cables, like the ones running to RGB, and tidy up the ones on the bottom(USB, audio and all), but I wait until Everything is finished, then do the visuals.Show off your PC!-win_20181014_08_41_43_pro.jpg

    Thanks

    I'm also still playing around with the lighting, another reason not to finalize the cable/wire management.
    I might move the strips around, but want to see how the RGB RAM looks and effects the lighting first.

    Being the inside is white, white RGB, and different gradients of blue look best(cooler colors anyhow) I find, where as in dark internal cases, warmer colors like red, orange, and yellow look better.

    Thanks Mike
    This was my first time using sleeved cables.
    It's just like when I went multi-monitor.... I'll never go back!

    I tried the PWM hub that comes with the case for my two front and the rear fan, but since it uses (what Phanteks recommends) the CPU PWM connection, and my CPU is water cooled, I noticed that the front fans don't cool my PCH(chipset) enough and it stays at 50-52C.
    So I think I'll leave the back fan on CPU connection(so when I get a BIOS update, I won't have the monitoring problem where it doesn't boot directly into BIOS or Windows and monitoring needs to be turned off again, as my AIO is connected to the AIO connection and not CPU_FAN), and move the two front fans to the chassis(CHA_FAN2 and CHA_FAN3) motherboard connection and set them to read PCH(chipset sensors get warmer faster that motherboard ones do in Q-Fan control).
