Cool, I guess I just have to experiment and see what works. Seems as though there is no "right" answer.

Anyone have any HAF-X cable management tips?

Mine still looks like poo.

I have the 932, so it's close enough.

You have the same PSU as me actually, so this should be fun. Only connect the cables you absolutely need to use. That's an obvious point, but one still worth making. Take all the wires down through the bottom hole, and let them just drape out of the back. Start with the 24-pin connector, up the side of the mobo tray, next to the cable tie spots, then out of the top hole to the motherboard. The GPU Cables are a little longer than needed, IMO, so run them first towards the back of the case then being them back to the front so you can run them out of the bottom large hole, and connect into your GPU. If you put a HDD in the last spot on the rack, you can easily hide cables under that as well, which I did when I didn't have a modular PSU.

If you post a picture of what you have now I can give more help.

Mine does too Mako, though it's mostly the SATA cables going up to my 2 DVD drives and the middle molex going to my sound card that keep it from looking clean :/

My camera is dead right now, and charging. I will defiantly post up some tomorrow. I think my cables may be affecting my temps a little bit.

The SATA cable I don't mind as much. It's the garbage of the rest that rub me the wrong way.

I did the cables 3 times on my case. This last time is easily my best. My motherboard isn't exactly friendly for cables, as the SATA ports and other connections are not at the edges of the board, but much closer to the middle. The black interior I did combined with the black cables on the X750 really add for a clean look, though it's way out of the league of some of the best rigs on OCN.

You might take a look at mine to see if it gives you any ideas. Ignore the sleeving if you don't have sleeving.

In the main area:


I apologize for not having the lower section included but you aren't missing much. I have the drive leads running directly into the HDD cage(you'll see it in one of the pics below) but for the most part the only wires in that area are the I/O leads that curl into the main area somewhat in hiding. And you can see the 6 pin to GPU as well but it's unobtrusive in that it flows behind the scenes through the HDD cage and into the GPU. I figured a straight shot was better than trying to hide it which honestly would've failed. If the 6 pin connector was on the side of the card I probably would've come up the inside of the card and wrapped into the connection for a cleaner look. Can't really do that with this style of card.


Behind the curtain:








There are essentially 5 groups of cables on the back. The 8 pin is self explanatory in that it goes all by itself in through the top. Tried to run the 200mm fan cable behind the mobo but it only caused problems there. The Red and Black leads are from the 24 pin and the 5 I/O leads sit with the top most group of the 24 pin. I use wire saddles from MDPC as well as cheap purse locks and the only zip ties I've used were attached to the front fan to cinch up a couple purse locks to control the SATA cables and keep them short. I hid everything I could by using the ribs between the openings. You X guys don't have to worry about that since you have the gaskets. But us early HAF cases have to.

So anyway if you need a direct shot of something let me know and if I don't have one I can get one and have it uploaded in a jiff.
