Best case for cable management?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking for a new case and it needs to be able to hides the cables pretty well...the Centurion 5 has no holes or anything behind the mobo so I can't really think of a way to hide them

It just needs to be under $80 and it has to look somewhat attractive

While the Armor is an amazing case and I love mine, cable management's a pain. I'm going through trying to tackle managing my cables.

You might want to look at a lower end Lian Li. My dad's PC-7B is pretty good for cable management.

I just need longer cables to manage my Armor. My IDE and SATA cables that came with my mobo are JUST long enough to reach the drives from the headers so hiding them is out of the question.

But I cut some holes in my mobo tray and route the wires behind there.
