Anyone got good cable managment in their Antec 300?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Im happy with most of the CM in my A300, but teh 24pin is too fat to fit and some of the PCI-e cables arent long enough to be re-routed, anyone have some really good tips on where to dril holes? I currently have 3, a big one for PSU and 2 others placed in front of mobo.

I had great success with just putting the cables behind the hard drive racks. There is plenty of room there and there are cable tie-downs there as well.

Thats sick looking ut i have a few questions:
1)Whats that hole in the top for, what do you fit in there? Because i dont think i have enough room there for my CPU cable due to my 140mm fan.
2)How did you fit the huge 24pin cable behind the case?
3) How did you fit the HDD's backwards without having the cables hitting the fans?

1. The hole in the top is for the 4/8 pin. I don't use the 140mm fan, so I'm not sure if it may end up being in the way.

2. Just a lot of flattening the 24pin and squeezing the back panel on pretty much.

3.

Wow, thats some nice CM, i didnt think that the fan would fit there if the HDD's are backwards, either way i have my HDD all set up now and if i switched it around id have to re-work my entire system and so far its looking good (took a break for dinner).
Once i clean off the table im going to get back to work, and once im satasfied ill post some pics
