So ghetto case, ghetto cables.
It can get really great looking biggrin.gif Just tie a bunch of the cables together and use the hdd cage to hide them behind.

Ha, I didn't even bother to change the name when I moved on from my GTX 260. But I still have the Z68 FTW, Perhaps it should be Half-EVGA love

So ghetto case, ghetto cables.

"Ghetto" thought only Americans used the term. tongue.gif Didn't know it caught popularity in Finland.

Don't worry about the tie down points, just pickup a big pack of thin black zip ties and start bundling the cords together and keep it simple, take your time, the process is quite fun.

I'd like some help please smile.gif At first sight I tried pulling it off, but doesn't seem to work.

O.K. I took some pictures, hopefully they will help.



To remove the clip, I just pushed it down from the top and pulled it forward.



Two screws used to secure the controller to the case, only used one on the other side (three altogether), one of the screw holes was blocked.
It is still very secure and won't move about.





(Sorry for the poor image quality, my camera wouldn't focus correctly.)

From these pictures you should be able to see the position of the controller and where it needs to be screwed in.

Good luck.
