Here is the plan for my G5 case!

Planned components:

i5 2500k
Gigabyte P67 motherboard
Radeon 6950 GPU
OCZ Vertex SSD
PSU & Fans to be confirmed

So, a couple of questions for you experienced system builders:

Do you think that the airflow is adequate? Am i trying to blow air over the motherboard in order to cool? Do you think two sets of fans will be enough?

Any suggestions on how to improve the cable management/ air flow/ general functionality of the build?


(I know this is a Mac forum, but I'd rather talk to people i know than join one dedicated to this.)
