I understand that I need to tie off the unused output transformer wires (blue-white & brown-white). The instructions say to do this outside of the chassis. I cut those wires, added heat shrink, and left them up top with the transformer. I then fished the other wires (that are used) into the chassis. I have since found photos of several builds (including the recommended Plexi Pictorial Build in the resources section) where those wires are fished in with the others and tied off inside of the chassis.

Did I do it right or screw up?
Does it matter?

There might be a bit less noise if you leave the unused OT wires outside the chassis.
If the wires are pulled inside and coiled up away from other wires you'll be OK. I think that it's neater and safer that way.

I think I'm good then. I tied off outside the chassis. I might add a 2nd layer of heat shrink just for good measure.
