Talking Aluminum Case & good Ventilation Help COOL'n Chieftec & Epox 8RDA+

Have JUST assemled my Chieftec ALUMINUM AX_01SLD SPX2 U2F SL CASE THAT I GOT FROM NEWEGG FOR $110, INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING... I CAN'T FIGURE HOW THEY DO IT ??
ALUMINUM CASE; BUILT JUST LIKE An ANTEC [EXCEPT Antecs STEEL ] 1040;
PLEXIGLASS SIDE DOOR;
2 USB & 1 FIREWIRE UP FRONT
450 WATT POWER SUPPLY [VOLTS LOOK OKAY, but doesn't have the bottom psu fan like amd recomends]
2 fans in rear for exhaust & i added one up front for induction
Quality throughout ,[rounded edges, removable 3.5" cages {2} ] except no instructions..[seen someone needed to hook up USBs try ANTEC site for as chieftec is vague on this case..
I have an antec SX835 that i've loved for a year & now it's going to my wife!! This one is sitting along side the SX835 & [they are the same height ] [but more drive space in chieftec] as i'm installing internet & software when not surfing on this antec.

Will probably be switched over by tomorrow if i get busy and back-up the rest of my emails [anybody know a good way on SAVING emails as i have a 2,000 or so ] and data files..
Textback-up the rest of my emails [anybody know a good wayon emails as i have a 2,000 or so ]

THIS CASE IS LIKE A WIND TUNNEL WITH ONLY VIDEO CARD INSTALLED SO FAR EPOX HAS MOST STUFF BUILT IN.
Am using AMD XP2400, with EPOX 8RDA+, CORSAIR XMS3200 CAS2 , west dig 80gig , LEADTEK 8X Ti4200 128MEG, SONY 48X24X48 CDRW, & TOSHIBA 16X48 DVD

MY 3 TRICKS ARE
1.USED OLD PHONE CORD TO WRAP AROUND POWER SUPPLY WIRES [LOOKS & COOLING]
2.USED PLASTIC KEYCHAIN STRINGERS LIKE YOU GET IN CASINOS TO WRAP AROUND REGULAR POWER LEADS...
3.BOUGHT ROUNDED CABLES.
THESE 3 MAKE FOR NON-CLUTTER & INPROVING AIRFLOW ???? WHAT YA THINK..??

:-D

Very nice indeed. I'm sold!

I've used this stuff for my wires as well (I prefer black, but it comes in many colors)

My point precisely. Especially since the 'feet' will make it too tall to fit my desk and then nobody will ever see it at all! LOL
