    And I hope you like having me part of your community :). Whilst I'm here have you got any tips for cable management because that's one thing that I know that I'll get stuck with.

    Cable management, ok for me i use only the cable,s i need, re route cables until they are neat and i get small cable ties from my local pound shop to tie every thing out of sight, unless you are ocd it does not have to be perfect, as long as you have good air flow

    My PC has very bad cable managment, meaning the air flow is bad, Gpu gets to over 90C, deffo make sure your cable's are neat it'll help a hell of a lot

    Cable management becomes even worse when your OCD senses start trying to make you throw your computer out the window...
    That can't be just me?

    Fully Modular Power Supplies are best for Cable Management because only the leads you use are plugged in. Saves a huge headache when working with your PC as well.
