yeah, DFI's are good boards! Just the color scheme did not go with my machine I was building this time. Maybe my next one!

Good luck on your rig, Viper! You have a good start!

Try this as a suggestion. Mount the hard drives so that the cables and power attach from the other end, instead of feeding into the case window. This will allow you to at least get that cabling out of the window, and redirected to a different area.

For your super/uber yellow rounded cables from DFI, try trading them in for some regular 80 cable EIDE cables. Get the cables in black if you can. get some other, older cables to practice with. What you want to do is practive folding the cables to get the flat ribbon cables as flush and hidden as possible. Same with the Floppy cable. Of loose the legacy floppy cable and replace it with a USB floppy.

Good component start!
Keep up the great work!

yeah I may get some thiner cables , I don't think I can mount the hard drives around the other way the cables would go into the 120mm fan.
