    Once you get a better PSU, the cables should be longer, allowing you to thread them through the back. It looks like the "Kentek" PSU's cables are too short to go around the back. Most reputable brands (Corsair, Seasonic, NZXT, Fractal, Silverstone, EVGA) have long enough cables and good efficiency (80+), and safety.

    Have a look at Caselabs' SMA8, it is like a 900D, except bigger and much better quality,
    I would recommend it for a build like this.

    Awesome! I really love the older Mac Pro/G5 design!
     
    Here are two suggestions if you haven't already ordered the parts. They are super nit-picky and you totally don't have to do them.
       The PSU: The TX series is an older, louder, slightly less efficient PSU.
             Recommendations:
                 - EVGA SuperNova 850 (there are 3 models G2 (80+ Gold), B2 (80+ Bronze, same as TX), and S (A shorter PSU, 80+ Gold, I  recommend for compatibility)
                 - Silverstone Strider Gold S 850
     
     The Cooler: The tranquilo is good, but the Noctuas (if you can stand the color) are better, if you can afford it, get a NH-U12S, NH-U9S. You could also buy a NF-F12 for the tranquilo.
     
    Remember, don't feel pressured, this is a great build already!
    Happy to see where this goes!

    I was raised as an only child, always around adults. I am a freshman in HS, but people always think I am much older. There is a kid in my class who acts like he's 6 though, but he has 4 siblings, all older. It might have to do with your family, but it might not.

    I was home-schooled when I was young (10) and was about to enter 7th grade (I moved at a fast pace), but our family moved and the school I transferred to (real school) put me into 4th because of "social complications". I prob. would have been out of college by now if I had stayed in home school.

    Maybe a rad in the front for more cooling? But other than that, epic build!

    As long as your mobo and your case can support a thick one, sounds cool! A thick one or a thin one in push/pull fan config might interfere with the left tube going to the cpu. You could always put a super thick 240/280 rad in the front with the ports on the bottom (to not interfere with the top rad), you'd only have to move the pump/res. If temps are good as it is now, then pass on putting another rad until you change something significant in the build (ie: X99, 3-4 gpus)

    A friend says he built a computer, so I ask him the specs. He starts talking about the intel i9 processor and how he had 128 gb of ram and 4 way sli with 780tis in it (back when those just came out). I contained my laughter and asked him to show me a pic. He pulls a picture of a raspberry pi up on his phone and I just stood there like o____o.
