Hahaha, you use even more zip-ties than me, that's pretty tidy though. Probably not much more you can do to that without making custom cable lengths, and we stopped bothering with that when transparent PC's fell out of fashion ;)

What's that slim optical adapter, looks neat with the 2 SSD bays behind it. I have only used an adapter without a fascia - it held a slim laptop CDRW and had a 3.5" bay I filled with a card reader.

I'd never see/heard of that 5.25" bay adapter. Looks very nice. Here it is for those who are interested. Holds 4 2.5" drives and a slim optical drive for $25.

Also, what's the other side look like? I too was awed at the number of zip ties used, but also agree that it's probably the cleanest arrangement I've seen.

Better hope there's never a reason to replace one of those cables. I've settled for less zip ties due to that.

To reduce wind noise you might try moving the big fan to inside the front plastic fascia if there's enough space for it. I discovered this when relocating fans in an Aerocool QS2000 and a Fractal Core 1000 the other night. When mounted inside the plastic fascia of the Fractal case, the sound of the inrushing air seems to be moderated by the steel frame's intake grill.

Edit: Oops. I forgot that this Temujin doesn't have much of a front piece. Still, a nice-looking yet functional tower. I hate cabling due to the mess that can result, but when the job's done well it is satisfying.
