Got some pics for us to study? I also struggled a bit with stiff PSU wiring, but I did manage to get them all running behind the mobo.

Buzzin92, nice rig, but isn't your psu upside down? Can't route that wire in the front behind the motherboard?
I did have it positioned the way it should, but due to the nature of the powersupply being small it didnt go all the way over the vents at the bottom of the case, in which case made the PSU extremely loud when at load. so i had to turn it upside down

but now its more/less silent when idle

You need to take your time and efficiently place the cables.

You need to look at it all and visualize the cable placement plan.

Finesse the stiff cables and once in the shape/place tie it down even if it means using twist ties temporarily.

When I get my new PSU, then Ill probably do it more carefully.

Thanks to you both though, you have given me hope ^^

didnt order it yet, waiting for the February paycheck. But I have been looking at a Silverstone Strider Plus 850Watts to power my current rig and two 570s aswell. Fully modular, should make things easier aswell.
