    well looking at it more closely...
    it looks like about 2-3 of those wires are from/for your fans...

    if you can 're-route' those (of course at this point it's not an airflow issue anymore..)

    Here's a few pointers for you. I have two cd-roms, four neon tubes with two ballast, five fans, floppy, two hard drives and two custom made LED modules in my old case. The small Lian-Li case, PC 30 I think.

    Cool Hard drive heat sinks

    It helps cool the hard drives. What I did was drill and tap the heat sinks and screw them to the hard drive cage. I put some Artic Silver on the heat sinks and a very thin layer of standard white compound on the sides of the hard drives. With the fans blowing over the heat sinks it helps cool the drives big-time. After leaving the PC on for a week, the drives were still cool to the touch. The RAM was hot as hell, but that was probably do to the high FSB.
