i would remove the 2 fans that come stock and also i think the sp series would have been better for this, but the system looks fine (minus cable management) the parts look good for a first rig. 


main rig: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/GFvH7P

next upgrades. h440 . 8320.  possible liquid cooling AIO

Wow man... That is an absolute mess! 
Specs are good, but one BIG question... Do you have multiple fans stacked on the H100? You will gain absolutely nothing from having it like that... The H100 should have MAXIMUM 4 fans on it... It's just pointless and makes more noise...
 

But here are two helpful videos on cable management:

What case is it? Does it have room behind the motherboard to route cables? 


System:

  • Sharkoon T9 case
  • i7 - 2600k @ Stock
  • Coolermaster 212 evo
  • Gigabyte GA-Z68-UD3H-B3 Motherboard
  • Corsair Vengeance 4x4GB
  • Nvidia GTX 780 EVGA Classified edition
  • Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
  • Samsung 840120GB SSD

Ok yes fans are a big problem as their was no room in the case i put the them on to i was trying for push extreme pull ( 2 fans at the bottom pushing and 4 fans on top pulling ) right know my temps are idle on Speedfan between 20c - 25c

Well I'd start by routing ALL of those cables behind the mobo. I'd also recommend bundling up excess or unused cables to hide them away in nooks a bit easier...

And really all of those fans are not going to help at all... Your case is pretty much all ventilation so it will passively be cool enough...

ok question should i be using a fan controller with the fans or use corsair link and would it be a good idea to get a modular PSU instead of this one 

( tomorrow i will try to re do all the cables and i will post another picture )

I personally don't have a fan controller, but if you really want to have a ton of control over fan speed and noise it'd be good I guess. But I think for you by the looks of it just just Corsair link. 

You should be fine without a modular PSU if you take a lot of time and care into your management... I don't have a modular and my build is neat enough

Wow, that looks a lot better! Nice job.

First build I've seen in an Antec Lanboy. Nice job! However I'm not a big fan of the H100i being mounted on the exterior. Just my opinion.

yeah i know i was trying to find another place but i have seen the radiator in the front but their was no dvd drive or hdd .. i was thinking of making a shroud for around the top radiator going to the top fans and screws on i don't know still thinking about that

Looks a million times better already! 

 

Just some food for thought, I don't know exactly the size of the room in the lanboy, but seeing as it is so flexible you should be able to mount a rad in the front, even on the side panel: http://youtu.be/Tgi2nNEb8XI

Where they have the 3x120 fans attached in this video. Your case is flexible enough to probably be able to get something done :)

Still looks a whole lot better! Good work

You can shuffle around the DVD and put it like as far up or down as you can, and the same with the HDD, jsut install them like back to back to open enough room for them. But would not opening the case be worth not having the Rad just chilling on the top? Haha These are all more things for you to tinker with and work on now :) Goodluck!

Ahhh why is it on a milk crate.... that is a good way to bump it and say hello to the floor, its not a motor bike.

 

But for your first build it looks decent, Work on the cables a bit more I know its a pain but totaly worth it in the end. 

 

Huzzah for the 2500k!!! such a good cpu
