  1. Theres a builders guide sticky up top of the section, sections three and four will be of most use to you,
    And as for cable management, I can try to help you,
    Need to know what case and hardware you have though,
    I'll link some pics later of what I expect you to achieve cablewise :-)
    You will need zipties, a 3-4Mm drillbit and possibly sectioned afterwards :-p
  2. Cables aren't something I like on view myself so it depends on how extreme you want to go,
    cables neat and out of the way, including I.D.E. ribbon, P.i.t.a rating 6/10
    Build log for that,

    Cables out of the way, P.i.t.a. rating 8/10

    And with a 5770 in there (other pics the old 9500GT (no power cable)

    build log for that,
    Invisicables, P.i.t.a. rating 0/10 (I actually enjoy hiding cables and hoses :P)

    I've actually pulled the gfx cables through a touch more since that pic was taken so its neater now
    Build log,

    so the question you have to answer is, how far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go? :P
