    Hey guys, this is my first time building a case from scratch, and I was wondering how my cables looked.
    Good, bad? Did I do anything stupid?

    Also, my 8-pin EATX, cable was a bit short, so it's in there really tight. Is this going to become a problem?

    Thanks.

    Cables look fine, and as long as cable isn't so tight that it's bending the plug and that it's locked in place then it should be fine. Depending if the window on the side of the case you may want move or hide the cables that are on top of the top drive.

    One recommendation that I would make for future builds is that you install the CPU and heatsink before you mount the motherboard in the case; it makes it much easier especially locking the heatsink down. Installing the RAM is easier as well with it out of the case.

    Another thing I'd recommend is that you space out the hard drives so they are not stacked on top of each other; that will help with heat and may help them last longer.
