I know I know! First thing I will probably need to upgrade is my hard drive... I will get a 1tb in the near future.. and bitfenix blue sleeving is on the way!
** A couple updates **
- Bitfenix cables arrived and installed
- flipped my rad although I'm not sure if I'll keep it this way. I think I like the other way better. Thoughts?
- put some carbon fiber looking vinyl accents
I definitely need to do something about those ugly wires from the PSU. Thinking about just wrapping it in black tape.

The rats nest. I know it looks pretty bad but I did try to make it somewhat organized. It's not seen anyway.. oh well
well bitch at everyone else who does it to thank you very much. Not everyone is going to format their replies the way you want them to. You don't moderate so I'd suggest being a little nicer about your requests thank you.
Why Push/Pull config? You will get roughly .00001% Performance/Temperature Boost over just Intake (Pull).
Especially if they barely fit, just ditch the idea. Just my honest opinion!
Disclaimer: Linus Sebastian agrees! lol
As far as the Y-Adapter Cable, it's so that you can plug 2 fans into one Fan Header on the Motherboard.
Therefore, plug your 2 fans into the "Y" part of the cable, and the other side (female) into your motherboard.
