can I talk you out of it? what a major PITA for any sort of troubleshooting. You'd need to redo half your work every time you change configs! Hiding wiring: lots of work for little gain. Who you gonna show this off to? Computer friends? Girls? (please don't).
Honestly, with reasonably clean wiring, you shouldn't have problems with temps. Obviously, you don't want a massive tangle of wires, but you don't need flawless cable management in order to get good temps.

Not entirely true. If it's done right, all you need to do is disconnect what you need to troubleshoot. And you would need to that anyway. And how often do you need to change configurations? Upgrading memory and CPU - no change. Adding a CrossFire or SLI'd video card? The extra power cables are right there either way. And SATA drives are much easier to work with than IDE.
And more importantly, tucking the cables down out of the way improves air flow.
not to mention sleeving, all to make your comp look smexy....
PLUS, if your running a rig, (antec 1200, 900) that has LED's, and your adding cold cathodes and all to make it purrty, you need some cable managment or it'll just ruin the beauty of it.
@jsc nice cable managment for the 900, ever think of painting interior black?
