NZXT source 210 has less than 2cm of space behind the motherboard (most modern cases have more, i believe the corsair carbide 300r has at least 3mm behind it, nzxt phantom has like 4-5 i think). So whatever your case has in space, half that (unless it's over 2 years old, or a terrible case).
Then, I got 5 case fans. 5 case fans isn't too bad, until you get a fan controller. Molex is a real pain in the ass - not only can these 5 case fans basically not be wired through any 'wiring hole' or utility hole or convenient slit (like those all over the hdd and cd bays), but the 5 molex connectors on the fan controller. There's also 5 temperature sensors. A Molex LED.
Not to mention in my case, I removed the HDD bays. So the matter of where to put those molex connectors, which, even in the best and most spacious of cases, cannot be put behind the motherboard panel, and are always stuck behind the HDD bays, becomes a minor problem, to a huge problem. Did I mention I also have 3 fans on my heatsink, and one of them is molex?
Oh, and you can't put them behind or inside your CD drive bays, because your case doesn't have enough space, and, because you can see cables through the cd bays if you got internal lights.
Imagine your computer case wiring, and if that same wiring set-up, was put in my case. I'm pretty sure if you used my case, you would have a ton of cables out in the open where my HDD bays are, OR, you'd have cables showing everywhere. Because I took a lot of painstaking effort, to make sure you don't see the 24 pin, 6 pins, or 8 pin cables. You dont see any sata cables, and you dont see any molex cables.
Believe me, everything in the back was organized. It was all very tidy like that other guys (who, by the way, didn't have a fan controller, any additional case fans, and didn't even plug in his cables to his motherboard or put a heatsink or GPU in). Then once you introduce molex, and remove the HDD bays, it all goes to hell.
I can't believe you are critical of the back of the case. The point is making the visible part of the case (an oxymoron, but I put a window in my case so it isn't one) very clean. And there are no cables visible in my case. The only ugly part is my cables aren't sleeved... yet.
