It's just got a piece of metal on top hiding all the wires that are coiled up next to it.

BTW, I'm working on yet another iteration of my wall-mount. This time around, it'll be even more rock-solid, more modular to account for any future monitor upgrades, and have a built-in LED backlight system. I'm in the middle of flight school right now, but I'll get some more work done on it as soon as I get some free time.
oh, i was refering to http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y2/...r/IMG_0798.jpg, the sata power cable. did it came like that?

yea, heard your a pilot, with great hearing too, some 400 pages ago. cant wait to see the backlight system with your triple monitors.

Oh that, that was a different mod. I did sleeve the PSU cables, but you obviously don't have to do that. It really doesn't help too much with cable management, it just looks cool. Here's what it looks like without the cover sitting on top:



Just coil up the extra cords you don't use, zip-tie them or something to keep them in place and tightly wound, and put on the cover. Instant cable management!

Hi! It's been a while since I posted here. But not much good has happened since last time so whatever.

Board is still at the shop. They couldnt find a problem with it so I sent my RAM and processor too. Still no probs according to them. They said they just upped the RAM voltage. Well I didn't know that was supposed to be done in order to get it to work. It should work fine at the standard 1,5V and it didn't. Oh well I learn everyday I guess.

Sent my PSU to them now as well as my motherboard beep indicated as "power failure" in the manual so I'll let them test that ****e just to be sure. Hopefully I got everything back and running around next week but it's been almost a month now

Even worse: my old cow died on me as well a few days ago. "Funny" thing is that I have the exact same problem as with my new system: fans run but I get no image on the screen. I think my PSU is getting too weak (it's brandless and has been running non stop for like 4 yrs ) or in a worse case my motherboard is dead. I'm gonna get a new PSU and see if I can revive that thing though...

Oh and I bought a panty hose for the window fan I'm going to install I'll post a pic of the final product once it's finished. The fan is still on it's way.

Anyways see ya around

honestly i think that look sucks. you can do MUCH better than that. ex:



you can barely even see my bundle of cables. you should wire them ALL through the hole and them hide them in the side panel with wire ties. notice all of those little slits that are PERFECT for zipties to bundle wires??

i like it for effort at least

Tough break. From what you said, I agree, I think it is the PSU. 4 years for a PSU, in general, is about what I'd expect is time for a replacement (not to mention that it's brand-less).

I'm currently on year 2 of my Antec True Power Trio. I almost want a reason to upgrade to a 850watt Corsair, but I must wait because of budget costs on my hobby.

Well wishes on getting your system back, and up n running again!

You're probably further advanced on mod's and cable management then I am, but, yeesh, that's pretty much what I'm looking in my case as well.

I picked up the CMSS last Friday & I haven't had much time to sit down and try to figure out better management for the cables. My cables came pre-sleeved, so that part is out of the way, but getting them to fit nicely on the side panel + getting the panel to close is the real obstacle.

Keep us posted on progress, and I will do the same. Maybe we can figure something out together (2 heads better then 1 right?). Sounds like you might be happy with your current setup, but if not.. well.. share your ideas

wow, it sucks, huh? you really didn't bother to read up on what I was talking about, did you? If you'd bother to do a little research, you'll see I was showing what was UNDER my false floor mod, as seen here:



And as for "all of those little slits that are PERFECT for zipties to bundle wires??" Yeah, I noticed them, while I was building a terminal block for my fans and routing all my sleeved cables...



cmon man, a little common courtesy please (and maybe research), before you show off how yours "doesn't suck."


back on topic...

I know what you mean about getting the side panel to close, it can get pretty tight. I found that if you lay the case on its side, with the backside up, you can use your entire forearms to push down evenly along the edges where it locks in. And that's awesome your PSU came pre-sleeved, can't wait to see pics!
