I use wire ties to attach the slack to the back of the case (behind mobo or the drives), similar to TwoCables did in his picture.

Meh, they're just cables. All 4 of mine work.

My sata slots are not to the side like yours. Maybe I could try and route it down instead of to the side. Maybe with balack sata cables it'd look good.

I just remembered that I took these pictures when I unboxed my new graphics card. Check out what I did with the SATA cables:








More pics here: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/7983...win-frozr.html


I didn't take any pics of the back, but I did the same thing that I did when I had the blue cables. The difference with these is that they're basically the standard flat design (I couldn't find round ones that lock). Plus, I have a different motherboard with basically the same SATA port positions that you have.

If you like these cables and want to know where I got them, then here they are (both at MonoPrice.com):

24inch SATA3 Cable w/Locking Latch - Silver for $2.18

24inch SATA3 Cable w/Locking Latch (90 Degree to 180 Degree) - Silver for $2.18

Thanks bro, that actually looks decent. I was thinking black sata cables but maybe some sleeved would look better. I don't really like those silver ones but I'll browse that site a while so thanks for the link!

You're welcome! And thank you!

I got the silver ones because I was looking for something different, but I also didn't want black nor did I want a specific color (I have bright white LED fans whereas I used to have bright blue LED fans). So when I saw these clear/silver ones, I just had to have them. They look great in person. But of course, that's always a matter of opinion!

I really want it to match a lot. I'm having a few ideas but I'm not fond of any at the moment. That site will come in handy for buying cheap SATA cables though.

I'm trying to find the Show off your Cable Management thread but I can't find it with that tag under search. Maybe I don't remember the name correctly? Anyway, I figured someone there might have had a good idea on what to do.

Still, thanks for the pics, they will be the route I'll be going if all else fails.

Yeah, MonoPrice.com is my absolute most-favorite store to buy cables from!

Anyway, here's that thread:
