    Default Cable folding advantages(big Photo)

    Hey check out the temp diffrences, the old temps were about 30 dergees minimum for idle and 100% CPU usage was about 55-65 degrees "ouch"

    My new idle temps realy show what IDE ribbin cable folding does for you:
    My higest now is 50 degrees at maximum load.

    We all have our moments, and I could have pointed out what I meant a bit better as well.

    I think everyone that has a plxiglass window or a front intake fan should consider folding your cables. Not only does it look better it makes it easer to access components and increases air flow which in turn lowers temps.

    I disagree. When folded flat ones looks alot better as they are hardly noticable.
