Need help with Cable Management - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Yup, the PSU came with those cable sleeves. But, it shows you can tuck the cables behind the hard disk cage.

If you really are skint, buy a pack of 100 cable ties. In the UK you can get them for 99p (bout $2.00). They at least allow you to tie them together.

Wow, thanks for that tut Great48. Are you positive it won't destroy the cable?

Is there not any other way to power an Optical Drive altogether? :/

Or, you buy a modular PSU, and use the unattached cables for spares, but for now, i'd disconnect the PSU cables from the PC, and use some black electrical tape very carefully wrapped around the cables so they're black. And not all multicoloured.

used this tubing (can be found at fry's or home depot). it has a slit that runs all down the tubing were you can put your wires in. they come in all sizes.. so u can get a small one for thin wires like fan, thick wires for psu., etc.. ignore the top left fan wire. i ran out of the tubing >_> lol.

also.. my heatsink is the same as yours.. just modded hehehe
