I got one of those "silent" editions, this means it has a massive fan underneath, and a regular size out the back of the case. What it also meant was it's thinner and that leave a little gap between the P/S and backplane, pull yours out and see if there's room there, if there is you can pass some wires behind the P/S, out the hole there, behind the back, out behind the mobo and into the mobo connectors. Use teeny little zip strips to hold them to the nearest place that they'll clip to, then snip them off with wire cutters.
For your 24 pin plug, there's a hole right there where the P/s is, run it out it, behind the backplane and around the side right next to where it plugs in. It takes a bigger zip strip for that one. Without the bottom drive cage, there's not much in the way of hidey holes for your SATA cables, but you can pull from where they meet the drive and between the cage and the backplane, be careful if you zip strip them because it's easy to cut into them, then lay them sideways against the metal and do the twist to put on the back panel. Go to page, I think it's 99 on this thread and you'll see pics of my backplane.
If you need more specifics, tell me what's buggin you most and I'll try to look at it to see if can be hidden. Oh, one more tip, if you get black SATA cables, they aren't as visible in a black case, they're cheap too.
Man I just can't get the sig line to show right, little help with that if ya'll please.
