  1. that is one sexy looking computer ! I don’t know what you are giving yourself a hard time on cable management it looks great considering how many that there are you can’t get around that no matter what so all and all the cooled processor makes one want to run out and get one but then realizes that you waited a long time to get this fine machine ! I hope that you enjoy it for a long time !
