Beautiful. The link to the first image doesn't work though. Could be my computer running on a netbook.
Cabling in my opinion is the hardest part. Good luck!

I'd start with putting the GPU in. Wink

You have a haf 932 which means your cable management will be cake if you do it while installing parts. Basically just stick every cable though the nearest hole (which in that case there is a cable hole near every component). After everything is in place you can start routing cables to where they need to be on the backside of the mobo tray.

What Hogrock said and yeah, put your GPU in before doing the cabling.

Also, do yourself a favor and remove the other side panel, so that you can route the cables behind the motherboard tray more easily.

Other thing that I highly recommend are zip ties, they'll make your life much easier with cabling.

You can also google some HAF 932 pictures, to see how other people did their cable management.

RE: build commences. with first pics!
will do on the GPU. for some reason i was thinking i was going to leave that til the very end...

had to remove the mobo to install the back bracket for the h70. there is a slot for that in the 932 so I thought it would be fine to do it at the end, but after looking at it i noticed the bottom two mounting holes were blocked.

so now the video card... just opened the box, and some of the plastic packaging is cracked!!! WTF?!? never ordering from tigerdirect again. going to take pictures of the damage just in case something doesn't work.

Plastic packaging is broken? Not a big deal as long as the card works. Most likely due to shipping. If you ask me, anyway Tongue
