Incredible difference between your first and last rigs....the first rig I couldn't believe it was actually something you settled on lol

Agreed with Chris, though your first Rig still seems like it's better cable managed then any of my rigs, ever.

Some of your first rigs are very reminiscent to my first ones. But wow your cabling on the last couple my god man. I don't know how you get it so perfect all the way to the psu.

Amazing progression. Approximately how many hours have gone into these rigs? :shok:

OCD + a lot of patience. A single wire out of place bothers me a lot. Enough that I would eventually tear the entire case apart to fix it. The Lian Li at the bottom is the longest I've ever gone w/o rebuilding a computer since I picked up this hobby.

Thanks. The further you go down the list, the longer it took. The Lian Li I would guess would be around 4 to 500 hundred hours. :whistle:

Well done. Nice seeing that you took the time to take pics, store them, and be able to find them for times like this.

So...I can just send you my parts and you'll build it for me...? :thumb: jk

I no longer feel as inadequate as when I started this thread. :haha: But wow, I thought my old VoodooPC had good cable management.
