Hi guys.

I have an idea to mod my Antec P193. The main reason is that with Noctua D14 - side door doesn't close.
The case itself is a brilliant piece of hardware. It's heavy, silent, and reliable but has drawbacks such as old design, bare metal inside, poor cable management options.

If you can give me any hints about modding and cable managing, - I will appreciate that. I'm also thinking about to go with factory water cooling to save some space inside and make it better looking, but seems like top panel will not work for that purpose due it's very close to the motherboard. So may be an option to get rid of front bays and install something like 280 fan on the front panel with turning air flow in opposite direction!?

Here are some photos how my system looks like inside, right now.
