General case mod

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, i will have a full tower Kandalf lcs soon. If i wanted to manage the wires, and have the wires barely noticeable. Where would i cut a hole for the cables to run through that connect to the mobo? Could i cut a hole right bahind the mobo and feed it through there? Or should i cut the whole somewhere else?
Also, if i paint the inside of the case, does it matter what type of paint i use? Will one paint harm my components or anything? Or cause electricity to jump?

Hmm... if you don't want to hide them behind your mobo, you could try putting them where the optical drives go... or you could get a modular psu?

Hello.

Take a look at This thread.

You will see many examples of wire-management. The pics should be able to get you started with ideas.

Since I am not familiar with your case, I would recommend that you wait until you recieve it. Once the case is in hand you will be able to get a better idea of what you need to do to hide the wiring.

For information on painting, check the Case Mods thread, and if you want to go all out.... click Here

Another mod that you can do to keep things looking sharp is sleeving. Here is a PSU sleeving guide, and the techniques can be applied to fan and control wires as well.

I have glossy black spray paint. I plan on putting it inside my case, so the inside blends in with the outside. Will spray painting the inside take away from the grounding properties? Also, do i need to use a special kind of spray paint? I don't see it being a problem at all, but then again i never done it before and had a problem...and well...i don't want to be the first lol.
