    If u flip that PSU over, it'll stop taking cooled air away from that GTX470, which should help a lil and will keep your PSU cooler.  That chassis is designed for that kind of PSU mounting, that's why there's a filter, etc. directly under the mounting bracket for it.
     
    Also, if they're not being used, you should take the extra HDD sleds and put them somewhere safe, like a special box or something, and maybe flip the SSD around (for hiding the cable, or heck, mount it in 1 of the 5.25 bays and that'll help even more).
     
    Lastly, I'd highly recommend to figure out what works best in that chassis to clean up the clutter of cables.  A re-routing I suspect is in order :)
     
    All that aside, it's a nice build u have coming along

    I like the build,  You just need to neaten up the cables a bit.  The previous post gives you some good advice. :)  It will look heaps cooler man :)

    I like it!  Just do a little work with the cables and flip over the PSU.

    +1 to EVERYTHING PM_DMNKLR said... he practically summed it all up, and yeah take the extra sleds out, it will help with air flow, and on the sides of the sleds are those solid lips that have no holes or really anything in them, making them pretty much a wall for that fan right there, rendering it pretty much useless for overall airflow in the case... and yeah with my SSD, i just literally scotch taped it to the floor of my Antec 1200, you could even tape it onto the underside of your DVD drive or watever ur doing!  Be creative, in the world of computer modding world that is key!
     
    Great build though, just some friendly pointers from some friendly people, is all it is

    Nice addition. Did you get those cables bundled? You can use cheap cable ties for that.

    Can you not route the majority of cables behind the motherboard tray?
     
    If that's a Lian Li case then I feel your pain, mine has no room for much of anything back there.

    yeap its lian li,so cannot hide them,i just tide them together so they take less space and do not block the air flow.

    yeah it's a shame they didn't make more room there.  They are really a top notch case, I have an older Lian-Li, the A10-B.  I love it, the only thing I hate, which is a big hate is the lack of space behind the mobo tray.    YGPM

    It's a fine build. Based on the size of your build I think you should consider a smaller PC case without any hard drive or CD rom cages.
