I routed the psu cables out the side instead of the back, I need to widen the hole I cut in the side so there is a bit more room to play with instead of it being so tight.

I'm going to sleeve all the bare cables with black sleeving and red heatshrink.

It would have been much easier if the layout of the mobo wasn't so crap, lol.

I'm just a bit skeptical atm, because I've been chopping and changing parts and what not...and I don't want all the modding and hard work to be a waste.

Modular psu's are good and bad in my opinion. they're good if you don't use all the psu cables, so you can just not plug them in, but they're very hard to hide because of the psu's design.

A friend of mine has the 1000watt Thermaltake Tough Power Modular PSU, and geez that thing is huge and bulky. His case is a mess because of it.

Word! There's nothing like picking up a package at the post office knowing it comes from a major part distributor

Theere is one easy way too "hide" them, just place the case so that the lightsource of the room hits the right side of the case Then you wont see the cables

i was wondering how the heck you guys hid the front panel connectors for the case... i never see them in any of the pics!! my psu cables aren't long enough to be hidden also -_-

Failing at cable management. cpu 8 pin and mobo 24 pin are just flying around

Well there are 3 holes near the PSU IIRC. I ran my HD Audio one through the hole that's closest to the rear of the case. I ran one of the USB ones through the 2nd hole and the last USB one through the big hole. Power stuff all through the large hole on the bottom.

The 24 pin cable is capable of fitting through that tiny hole on the top where all of the front panel cables are coming out of. I did it though it was pretty had and the front cables needed to be out of the hole.

Most people run the 8 pin through the CPU HSF retention bracket hole and they do it before putting the motherboard in.

photonmoo- Great job on those updates. Your case is looking really good especially those cable management you've done over there.

You can also route it behind the GPU just between the PCI lane and the back of the case, it isn't invisible but it is barely seen.
