That's where I hide all the horrible messy cable collection too, kinda like when a kid tidies their room by chucking everything in the cupboard :P

I was always paranoid a cable would touch something important on the underside of the mobo and cause a short, so never did it..

I've always been ATI until this PC, thought I'd give Nvidia a go, they're doing me well so far! Also only had an ATI blow up on me, but that's because i was overclocking the shit out of it, and attached a third party cooler, probably wrong haha.
