Well, after putting the cable management issue to the side for a few days to catch up with some work, I decided it was time to tackle the beast.
Thats when I ran into some trouble. I am unable to get the back panel to fit with the main (24 pin) power cable coming around the back of the system.
Since I am (apparently) the only person having this problem, I have to think it has something to do with the power supply being mounted at the top of the case. Thats the only thing thats different between my build and any others I have looked at. Howerver, that just doesn't make sense to me - all the cables are being routed behind the mother board tray, they all have the same number of wires with basically the same sleeving, so, unless my power connector has really thick insulation on the individual wires, I can't think of any reason why it shouldn't fit between the mobo tray and back pannel.
This is driving me nuts.
Any help, thoughts, or comments are appreciated.
