How does this look for cable management

I decided I would just go at it, and ask for some advice...



I am about to buy an SATA DVD-RW so I'll probably run it the same way as the hard drives, with the exception of it curling over and plugging into the drive. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Nice job :) 
I'd put some feet under the case to help improve airflow to the psu.

Yeah, there's feet, they're just really low. I was thinking about getting casters for it though. :D

Cable management is great. All the fans will be able to do their work without any interference.

As already stated, you need to get that case lifted an inch or more of the ground/bench to allow air flow to your PSU.

Only thing I'd change is maybe something along that inner edge of where the cables come out before attaching to the motherboard. This way the cables won't chafe and eventually short.

Yes, indeed. Nice job. Amazing how much difference SATA cables, as opposed to IDE cables, make, isn't it?

Yeah, man, especially when the SATA ports are right angled like that. It does wonders.

Outstanding cable management! Cleanest wiring I've seen in a long time. Really great!

Others have already pointed out the need for replacing the feet on the bottom of the case. This is especially importent since your power supply is installed with the fan on the bottom.
