I have a piece of acrylic on the side of my SM8 which I use to mount a mini tamiya wiring harness and a SSD. Not sure if I have enough space to create a void behind the acrylic but I like the thought.

Thanks. Thought of channels first, but then just decided it do it this way. With layered acrylic -- easier to move cables around and to dismantle.
Got this 22AWG Shielded wire from Home Depot.
Put two of these 4 wire in a SATA sleeve. I really like this wire...compared to working with NZXT by redoing existing wires. Much nicer to deal with; crimps were nice.
You can see them top right near the USB Hub.
It is 26" long.
Got the 1" Standoff (shiny one on left). And now it levels off with right side - (0.375" Standoff + 0.122"Acrylic + 0.5" Standoff)
While doing all this I realized the hub takes 5V..and Jeak amp 12V. The D5 Pump 12 V.
So I have to run 4 wire power up here.
From front the bottom most device is SATA connector for NZXT RGB Hue. So I might as well run SATA wires from PSU and tap into 12V and 5V along the way while the wire is running at the bottom.
