Should I do some tidying up. I think I should get a bigger case with cable management.

I wish they'd make PSUs with removable cables :thumbsup:

Edit: If you are wondering why the hard drive under the DVD drive is unplugged, it's because I use it as a backup. When I took the photo I noticed that it was crooked. I fixed that by adding another screw.

Should I do some tidying up

Haha... that's a tough question to answer :thumbsup:

I built my own computer, and because it had a clear sided case, I had to ensure that the wires were neatly tied down, etc. So, if your case has a clear side, then yes.

Also, neat wires enhance the air flow aroung the computer case, so if you love over-clocking your computer, neater cables may mean that you have better cooling capabilities.

At the end of the day, it's totally up to you. I had a computer with a mini-sized case, but since I didn't overclock, and it didn't have a clear side, I was happy to let it remain in a mess.

However, if you do intend on tidying up, I would recommend that you unplug all the wires, from both ends, and then start prioritizing which wire you want at the bottom most, etc. I use twist-ties to tie unneeded power cables to the slot right below the CD drive.
