CM Stacker 830 Wire management

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ive been working on figuring out how to solve my cable mess in my stacker, and im at a loss, cable management has never been a strong suite of mine, but i want to clean it up to prepare for some future mods.



And the problem area



my HDD rack is mounted in the middle 3 5.25 bays, which are of course as close to the SATA connectors as possible, i have no idea how the hell to figure out how to hide those, and the molex connectors for fans and what not.

Any advice would be awesome

get some steel step bits to make holes and route the wires behind your board

the motherboard is aluminum (flimsy) and removable. Hard to cut holes in without warping it.

Wire management was one of the biggest flaws with the 830 while I had it.

the wire manegment is terrible, im thinking about a plexiglass sidepanel mod wiht some engraving but i refuse to do it if i cant get my wires under control. and im not sure if theres enough room on the backside to hid wires, the back panel is pretty close to the motherboard tray.
