I am sorry but this installation is not really successful...
First reason is Cables are everywhere in case you should collect and find some way than stick together with electricity band or a cluff.In this case you make it look more clean from outside and you make air condition work with higher performence...
Second reason is Your input plugs behind of your case are not fit for a relax plug in...I don't think you didn't know these all but...I would install this pc components much better.

"I just built my very first PC and I could not have done it without your tutorial. I learned so much about what to do and not do, what to look for and what to avoid.
Your tutorial is very thorough, precise, detailed and easy to understand.
My PC is up and running very well and it is all thanks to your video.

Check out the computer I built!
Thanks again!
