Description

It's going to be a gaming machine mainly, and so far everything is working out great. GPU went in fine, though I did have to unplug a few power cables on the motherboard to actually install it.

A friend paid for the SSD.

Good work on picking parts at a decent price (though a 520W, 80+ Bronze PSU for $100 is way overpriced, Seasonic or otherwise).

I have a rig built in the 200r, and there is lots of room for cables mgmt, so go for it! The way Corsair designed the 2.5" drive bays sucks, since they point right into the case, instead I'd recommend mounting your SSD behind the mobo tray and thus get some of those cables hidden even more. Just my thought.

Ah, you can override those with correct prices...

I thought my cable management was good >_>;

Probably looks horrible to someone who's done it a lot though. I'll see what I will need to do once the GPU is in but should need much more work. (Might want to buy some more zip ties though.)

I'd play with the cables a bit. There just so many ways to hide them now and it really looks polished. Also, try some black twist ties instead of zip. Lets you re-route easily when you want.

But don't twist ties have metal in them? Thought that wasn't a good thing.

There is a wire, but on the ones I use its embedded in plastic. Plus I'm securing an insulated and most times sleeved wire to the metal chassis anchor points. Shouldn't be a problem.
