The worst case ever for cable management !

Is this why there is no internal photos? I was able to cable manage my SPEC-02... so I have a very opposite opinion with yours but we may had different experiences since I heard EVGA's ATX 8-pin cable may not fit behind the CPU hole with the Corsair SPEC-02. I could be wrong since I never had to work with an EVGA PSU with this case. I am sorry to hear you had problems with the Corsair SPEC-02. Do you need to buy an extender for the ATX cable which maybe could help some or what was the issue?

Hey, thanks for showing an internal photo here. Plus one for your build and yourself!
Maybe if you could just tuck the bulky wires underneath the hard drive cages or optical bay (if there is any room left). If the ATX 8-pin will not fit through behind the CPU hole than maybe try to tuck it underneath the MOBO plus use some zip-ties and velcro straps can help with the bulky wires. You should be able to tuck the smaller wires behind the case and through the holes as I did with mine at least. Meaning the Front Panel, USBs, HD Audio and Case Fans.
It does not have to be perfect but if you can re-organize the wires someday it should help you out in the long the run when you need to clean the computer and upgrade. No rush to try at it again since we all had those moments to take a step back, take a long break to breath and re-think clearly.
Awesome, you made a good choice with the GTX 970! I love mine so far and been happy with it. I bet you had a great deal! :)

I love that CPU. Mine does a lot of work for me. As for the disk drive, if the noise is from vibration, a couple of rubber grommets might put a stop to that.

I realize I'm a bit late, but just wanted to point out the keyboard is loud because it's a mechanical keyboard instead of a membrane. Mechanicals make more sound but have a better feel, membranes are cheaper and quieter.

Dude it's a mechanical there naturally clicky. Maybe you should have done some more research before buying it.
