Hey, 

 

      If you buy a small set of adhesive tie-downs and set them really close to the motherboard and zip-tie the cables to them, it would hide the cables a little better, rather than having the cables slack out. But, as it is already, it's fine. I'm a stickler for cable management, and for me, If I see more cable than needed, I go nuts.
