No used double sided tape seems to be working well so far, I was looking for Velcro but couldn't find any in the house cheap DYI FTW!

Use the cable managent holes, please. It is quick to do and looks a LOT better. It will be much nicer to work in your case too.

This case is perfectly for beginners, because it has so many options for a good cable management. here take this picture of my build as a reference, this is also a non modular psu (replaced it now)

You don't need a modular power supply to do cable management. Mine is really old and not modular at all. You should try playing with the cable management holes, it's fun.

I should probably post some images also!
Rather pleased with the cable management smile.gif


Matches the headset nicley wink.gif


Sound proofing for the top!


Cut a hole and replaced that horrible fan!


The plastic cap reduced the temperature by a couple degrees


Dust filter for those fans also


The big box

I'm just joking with you. It's a common for first time builders to plug in everything and go. My roommate built a pc and did the exact same thing and didn't think twice about it.

Do some cable management. You've already spent money on a nice case and nice components, and you'll want them to get maximum airflow AND look good for you and anyone else you want to show your rig off to. Modular power supplies just give you fewer cables, not make the ones you have plugged in disappear. I have a Corsair TX750 psu, which has a ridiculous amount of cables that I was still able to hide very nicely.

There are lots of cable management guides on the internet, and you just happened to pick one of the best cases available for cable management. It's actually a lot of fun to sit down for an evening to tuck away and hide your cables just right so that they're practically invisible.

I tried to do some more cable management but my H100 is blocking a hole for my 8 pin connector and it is not long enough to go through the holes but I will try to do some more.

I also have the H100...maybe you should run the 8 pin cable through the hole first and then install the radiator? That's what I did and didn't run into any problems.

Run all your cables through the big hole next to your power supply, and then you can thread your 24 pin motherboard cable out of the grommet next to the connector on your board, and the graphics card cables through the grommet underneath.

sounds good I will try when I get my new fans in just to save the time of re managing everything then taking stuff out etc.

Just finished my newest build last night without any hiccups. I still need to do some cable management in the back, get white individuality sleeved cables, make covers for the psu, and bays, and mount the ssd. But most of it is finished.
