    judge my neatness pls.

    Ok finished the simple doings in my case, think i got it neat enough but the ide cables were a pain.


    La case-a



    good room for airflow: note teh room teh 1030antec gives



    Hdds set to cool well, top to top:





    heres my ide cable mess, only blocks the airflow from the hdds so it isnt too bad, extra ide wire goes under teh floppy drive



    extra wires were electric taped and stuck up here outta the way



    tt ramheat spreaders on my ram:

    no expert here but i think you could do better with flat cables and folding them carefully.

    YoS....

    You have a ton of room behind those harddrive cages and the back of the case. I routed wire and my IDE cables that way.

    I don't have a digital camera or I'd show you what I mean. Just twist your IDE cables to make a loop if you have enough room and slide them behind your cages.

    I'm using rounded cables also.

    in the latest pic i did that with one, but if i do that with teh others it pulls the plugs out of the hdds, mobo or cdroms.

    not necessarily

    it will only be a problem if both hdds are on the same ide cable

    and then even if they are, all you need to do is a a longer ide cable that has more space inbetween the master/slave ports and then fold the cable across from the first drive to the side of the hdd rack, then down, the fold it again so you can run in below the fan, then fold it again and run it to your drive

    i don't have pics of it because i sold the comp that i did it to

    nice job

    My case will never be that neat... I have a video card, NIC, Sound card, and 2 scsi cards in my slots, 3 separate scsi cables, a floppy cable, 5 hard drives, 2 cdroms, 1 floppy, 6 fans (yeah, I went fan happy ). Too much stuff... it's very cramped inside my 1030.

    i've got that maxtop case, pics on in this forum under "new new case" thread.

    its smaller than the 1030 and i'm gonna use it for a future P4, like after the granite bay, gonna go scsi as well

    gonna be a tight fit, but its ok

    putting 20 bucks a week aside for the system starting this paycheck


    elbob, with that fan mount in the bay i cant fit a vable in there, maybe i'm not understanding u right?
