    Eh it was a lot worse on my old build. I've kept pretty much everything together in my antec but its hard when the psu wires are too short to reach mostly everything and I dont feel the need to buy extenders as my airflow is absolutely fine.

    damn nice build, final cost?

    i totally say take apart and cable manage, A. because it's fun, B. because it makes it sexier + IMPROVES air flow.
