Do not listen to this.
Cable management isn't too important as long as it's not too bad. A few misplaced cables is fine, it's when you get this is wear there's a problem.



As long as there's a sufficient enough of airflow, your golden. If temps seem a bit high, tidy up.

Also, just a side note, but for your setup a 1000W is a bit overkill.
Why does everyone always say this?

its the users choice on the PSU, i always say get higher for upgrades later on, then i won't have to invest into another new powersupply

What sauce do you want on top of that spaghetti?

like most have said, a few stray sata cables or 4 pins is fine. If your side panel is not windowed then there is even less reason. If you DO have a window and you want to tidy up for vissual sake then you can try to shove some cables int5o variouse other creative places. If your psu mounts on the bottom of your case you can try shoving cables beside it.

Though if you have the money the best investments would be a new case with lots of cable manegement holes and plenty of room behind the mobo side panel, and a modular PSU (if you dont have one already).

If you want to see a few clever ways to wire your case without making it look messy check out my pictures of my computer. I dont have a modulare psu or a case with alot of cable manegment room OR a mobo with convenient places to send my wires so i had to make due.

Any case can be cable managed if you put time into it:

Right now the case is a mess, so is there a big increase in anything beneficial (like temps) or is it minimal?

If above is yes, management brings great results than I am looking at the Corsair 600t. Linus Sebastian did a great job in his cable management guide and he was using that case so I am looking into the same one. Is this a good case?

And that is pretty much it!
Lets see now, Well you obviously at even knowing were to start on Cable management. So, here are some pics too show you some cramped cases.

Check below and this is some of what i deal with.

I'm sure the Cosmos is much better than some of the cases I have worked with whilst having a non-modular power supply. It takes time and creativity, but you can truly get good cable management going in any computer case. Even ones that have no room behind the mobo tray

Goodness.
That's a lot of HDD's.
And that's worse than what my first build (sig rig) looked like.

OP: Cable management is important, especially for components on the motherboard that require incidental airflow. As this guy ^ said, a few misplaced cables is not a big deal.
