if that so, then you don't really HAVE TO fix anything

I just took these. I'm not even satisfied with my cable management job. The 600T is the easiest case I've worked on, you can do better than that. It is completely safe for you to leave everything the way it is but it doesn't look right.

Bloody, hell, think im gonna have to have another crack at it lol. Gotta get some sleep and get into it. Wish i had a modular power supply aswell now. Did you use the fan controller or just tuck those cables away? it all went down hill for me once i got them out.

I am using the fan controller but I passed all my cables on top on the back. You can remove the plastic shell around your case, it makes everything easier to manage. The plastic shell is in three parts, the front, back and top. There are small pins the you push and on each side inside the case to remove them.

not having a modular power supply isn't really a big deal, you can hide all those cable at the back. all your cables are loose, tighten those up, use a lot of zip ties.

Have you just got your hard drives in the top where the cd drive goes? Think I need to take out the hard drive bay as well.


And yeah, they are really loose, but worse than that they are all cross crossing each other. I was honestly just winging the cable management at the start with my main focus being that I plugged everything into the correct place and didn't break anything lol, and the cable management gets out of hand pretty quick.

Look closer on the picture of the back of my case. The HD and SSD are floating on the back with some velcro

Like mentioned, if you want to improve, cable ties cable ties cable ties.

It can take 1-2 Hours to get a half decent looking job done. Well at least in the not so great cable cases.

This is my childrens Antec 200
