If I may offer my humble opinion on the cable colouring, the sets with blue, white and orange look especially good. They're colours that work well together from a design perspective. While I'm fond of the symmetrical example, when it's a functional item then the meaning of the colour is more important to me - if you were using orange for a particular voltage or polarity for example, better to keep that rather than just have the colours arranged by position. Just my thoughts though

Those CPU temperatures seem a bit high for a system at idle. I'm not familiar with voltage settings and don't know what CPU you have in there so I don't know if they're right or not. Is this with your system fully enclosed in the case, or still laying out? The latter would be more indicative of something not being setup just right in my albeit uneducated opinion.

You might be unfamiliar with things right now, but your experience will increase through this and the more you learn, the more you will be capable of
