I'm sure there are other brands you can use as well, but just thought I'd share the one I am using, since the subject came up.

Below is a link to an image of my PC interior with the NZXT Extension. Located on the top right-hand side of the motherboard, reach out from behind the motherboard tray.

Thank you for the suggestions, and this is Danny_b's rig and it's ultimately his decision as to what to spend money on. However, in my own rig I do use the NZXT extension kit I have both the 24-pin and the 8-pin from Fry's as well, my 8-pin is hidden up top wedged between the Noctua and the mobo plate, and my 24-pin is actually wrapped underneath my mobo since the individual sleeved wires allow me to flatten it enough to do that. Here's how it's set up in my rig:

Also, a tip for you, the USB header cables as well as power/reset/hdd activity wires can also run underneath the motherboard like so:

No, lol, not MS Paint. I used Adobe Photoshop 7.0

All I did was use a .png image file of the OCN Logo:

http://www.overclock.net/attachments...clock-logo.png

Then typed "CLEE 413", "overclock.net", and "CMSSC".

"CLEE 413 (next line) overclock.net" are using Fish text lining. Then I layer the text with Outside Glow and Shader.

For, "CMSSC" the text lining is Arc. Layered with Drop Shadow.

"Save as" a .png file type (a .png file type keeps the background transparent where as a .jpg would fill the background white).

Nice. Good to know there's another Ps user on here. I'm a freelance graphic designer myself. I made that wallpaper with Ps CS3. Found an actual vector of the OCN logo in Illustrator format and I just exported that to Ps. Let me know if anyone needs it in the future.

Very nice tips for cable management. I haven't run any cables between the motherboard's tray & the motherboard before. I wish I had realized that before I finished installing the motherboard.

Good to know! For me, sounds like a fun rainy day project. I love rainy day projects - especially if it's literally raining! The cables for the LED HDD, PWR LED, etc & the USB are quite ugly to look at; it will be great to hide them even more.

2 quick questions (to satisfy my OCD)
  • 1. Is that electrical tape you are using on the USB cables?
  • 2. The cables that run in-between the motherboard tray & motherboard, since they touch the motherboard, don't cause any harm or problems?

they shouldn't. the insulation would protect it all. and the stand offs leave enough room for the smaller stuff (like pictured) will actually have some room to move around if you play with them . so yea. no harm. just make sure you are not compressing them or or tweaking the motherboard

Yes, what he said. They are properly shielded, just avoid having too much stuff behind where the CPU sits since that spot is hotter than the rest.

Edit: Yes that's black electrical tape over the USB header cables, but you ziptie them too since overtime the tape will start to melt off like mine did. So I just took it off.
