Need help with Silverstone FT02 Cable Mang.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm in the middle of a build right now working with the Silverstone Fortress FT02 case and am wondering if anyone has any pictures of their cable management on both sides of the case? I've never really been great at wiring my cables behind the tray so if anyone has some pictures of their own feel free to post them. It'll be a big help.

Also I'm having difficulty plugging in the sata power connector into the optical drive which is positioned at the highest drive bay. I've seen pictures of others who were able to manage getting there's plugged in and working fine. Any suggestions on this issue?

Last thing is, when I had put my heatsink on long ago it was to exhaust air out the top exhaust fan. But now since the motherboard is turned clockwise 90 degrees, my fan is pretty much blowing on the PSU. Do you guys think this will disrupt the overall airflow of the case or shouldn't really matter? Hope it won't matter since putting on and taking off the tuniq tower is a pain in the ass.

There's a thread in this very forum dedicated to Silverstone that has plenty of pictures of cable management in FT02's...check out out!

Well I finally finished it. The biggest pain was routing the fan cables. I'll post pictures in the Silverstone Thread in a bit.
