X500 Evo: Stuffing da beast (Part 5)

Yeah I know I'm a bit OCD with the cables :)

As you might have seen already in my initial X500 Evo presentation article, the upper shell case has 2x 50mm Fans with it's cables, a cable for the Power switch, and 2x quite lengthy thick insulated LED cables for Power/HDD activity.

I thought to share some keyboard pr0n for entertainment purposes.
