Help with cable mgmt - Page 2

The HDDs are sitting less than 4 inches away from the Sata ports so i wouldn't gain a lot of clean up that way I don't thnik. The 3 dvds drives I suppose I could run them behind the back plate but to connect to the sata ports they would have to reappear right back underneath the vid card again.

a few cable ties would asl help and a drill with a 8 mm hole to tie down the cables to make nice looking.

take the one dvd writer out... that way you can store the extra cables there and less wires to try and make nice and pretty.



the hard drive sata cables... fold them nicely and cable tie them to look all pretty... you said they are only 4" away so that will be alright.

the fan that is ontop of your chassis.... see if you can run that cable at the back of your mobo...

the 8 pin (for the mobo) see if that will aslo run behind the mobo - i see you got an extender there.. so it might work as it is the single wire sleved one and is nice and thin to do the job.

what is that pci card... can it come out?? - will make it look cleaner if it comes out

what is that solid piece of wire in the back grouns there comming from the top right hand corner to the bottom - i think it is the case buttons and all for the front pannel... am i right in this??

Ok I really don't use all three anymore so I can do that. I can take the lowest one out.

That will be really tight because of the Vid card. I have 3 sata hdds, 2 in the upper bay and 1 in the lower bay. You can see a sata cable running to the bottom of the pic. maybe i should move the lower drive up into the upper bay but it would be an even tighter fit. i can try it.

The case is an Antec 193 performance, it came with 2 120mm exhaust fans for the top. OK that's another good idea. I should pickup some more molex extenders for that.

Yep, I had to get an extender for that because the PSU is pretty far away.

One pci card is a Asus Xonar sound card, the other is my wireless adapter.

Uh no. that is the single power cord for all 3 dvd drives that plugs directly into the psu. You thinking I could run that behind the back panel too?

yeah... give it a try. no harm in trying

btw... when you get your new psu.... try and get one that has long leads, so it is easier to do cable routing and wire managment

Already changed out the old psu (Antec True power 650) with a SeaSonic X-series 850. had to do that because of the gtx590 and all the other stuff i have. Sheese, I don't need three dvds do I, so one will go. OK so far I can get some extensions to lengthen both the molex connector for the top 2 120mm fans the 8pin cpu power connector. Is there such a thing as sata cable extenders? If so what are they or do I just get REAL long Sata cables for data & power?
