You rewire your PC every 3 months?

Why not - add a mate's hdd, add a card; graphics, tv, sound etc without your own wants can leave you pulling down quite often without cleaning.

Pretty much. New GPU, new SSD, Audio cards... if anything I do know where everything is on my motherboard, and I could not have said that when I first got into this.

You rewire the whole PC every time you add a GPU or HDD?

Not a full re-wire no.

I open it up every ~3 months to either add something, clean it or see if I can organize the wiring better.

I'm one of those people that really can't leave well enough alone when it comes to my Desktop.

I'm similar in this regard, actually. I open mine up every 3 months or so as well, and in the process I always find one or two things to improve upon (usually running of cables/wiring) when I do it. I usually open my system to clean out dust bunnies, the CPU fan, GPU fan, and case fans. I don't tend to do this during the winter though, as the added heat from the PC does keep one side of my apartment warmer than it could be (gotta love buildings built in the 1940s, fantastic insulation, not. :P)
