Took a bit of effort. Ran it behind the mobo tray and it's between the back corner of the case and under the 140mm fan. I used a white cable extension that has every cable individually sleeved, (made by NZXT) and spread them apart. Took a little squeezing but everything runs fine and good. Ill try and find a pic of it.

Hm, well a couple cuts that could be made up there I think that could improve cable management in that area. Let me know how it goes, I'd love to see it!

Don't worry I wouldn't leave my fellow Lexa and crafted series owners hanging by announcing a mod then not posting the results, even one as easy as this would be and wouldn't be the most satisfying thing to brag about tongue.gif

Hahahahaha! Alright, I should have expected as much, I mean come on now, we all share in great taste.

So I finished the mod but unfortunately still couldn't get the new hole large enough to fit the wires after sleeving them. I was able to fit some of the wires for the fans but not the 4 pin or 8 pin like I had hoped without the fans getting in the way.

Here is the result of what I did:
I cut and grinded down a decent sized opening behind the motherboard tray at the top of the case:

I then applied a small amount of caulking for insulation and to protect the wires from still potentially sharp edges:

Unfortunately the room between the motherboard tray and back of the case was too small to actually fit either of the two wires I wanted to hide back there but I was able to do this which was better than nothing:
Smumqh.jpg

I took the time to sleeve all of my wires and also get a couple cable extensions in order to make my case look a lot better inside and I did manage to take some pics of that though so you guys won't be completely disappointed. You may notice that I am missing the PhysX card from the last pics because it kicked the bucket but everything else is there.
Freshly cleaned and rewired Lexa (Click to show)
All the wires coming out the back before the PSU went in:

Everything fits in there just right:

Ain't she pretty all lit up:

And in the dark:

One last look before the PSU went back in:

I just included a little peak in the spoiler the whole album including pictures of the sleeving can be found here:

Thats alright, that is what I had done with the 8 pin before I managed to squeeze it where I did. Looks great mate!
