Hey Hackcremo. it should be a fairly easy task to fit all of your cables behind the motherboard tray in this chassis (their is a ton of room), especially if you have a modular psu with nice long cables. And as long as your not running 5+ hdd or sdd with some crazy tri gpu setup or something. What kind of hardware are you running? Post a pic or two of what you have done so far, it'll be much easier to help if we can see your setup. thumb.gif

The 690II chassis makes it easy to tame psu cable monsters vs the older original 690s. Adding a few zip ties to fasten down wires against the mobo tray and having a nice sound plan before you start helps a lot. Run similar cables with each other (front panel, usb, molex, ect.), stack sata data and power cables flat on top of one another, and if you can...use heat shrink or electrical tape to group wires together. Route the big cables first (24 pin, 8 pin, pcie) and if you can, try to lay them flat, without overlapping as much as possible. Make sure to use as many of the cable routing holes, tie anchors. and hiding spots possible.

Good cable management is an art, don't get frustrated. Getting all of your supplies and tools laid out before you get started is highly recommended. A lot of the time the wires, cables, and connectors you have might not be able to do everything you want. You can fabricate some of your own if needed and able but you might also need to purchase a few extenders, splitters or couplers to get the job done right. With a good plan, a little tlc, and some patients, I'm sure it will turn out great. Best of luck, keep us posted...

It has turned out well thumb.gif

Great work. Like how you have kept the side fans as well.

I plan on a window in mine, but I want the side fans out, with out it being almost a complete side panel window. thinking.gif
post #17487 of 19729
Thanks, yeah I couldn't decide if i wanted an entire side window and get rid of the fans or do what I did. In the end I thought the middle window turned out good and is a bit different than the full side windows you see. thumb.gif

In my opinion this is very ugly. I don"t think you have much profit from side fans so my advice would be make a full size window wink.gif

LOL, that is perfectly ok not liking it. I do agree about the side fan comment. Just wanted to give it a go and see what it would look like the way I did it. I like to have fun projects to do, and I thought the side window one would be good. Super easy to do and I like the end result. I may end up extending it later and getting rid of the side fans. Who knows. But I like it as is as well.
