Cable management 800d

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So this is my first build but I think it looks bloody messy so would want some help/advice on cable management so I know what to do differently for when I get the new mobo and rebuilding it

The backside looks like a mess aswell and I suppose that could help but not going to fix that yet as I have plenty of time for when the store is looking for a way to not give me a replacement mobo

Pull the wires back as much as you can so the least amount of wires show on the side you can see it. For example, your showing more than you need to when it comes to your PCI wires, your USB wires, and which ever those other ones are on the lower side of the motherboard. Also.. isn't there a doorway to cover the SATA cables on the lower right of the case? The 800D is probably one of the best cases out there for cable management, it takes talent to make a mess man LOL

edit: the back side always looks like a mess, thats okay, u dont see it!

Woah, get some zip ties for the back side of that bad boy so there is not so much extra wire hanging through.

Pull the wires in as far as they can go.

Rotate that fan on the H70's rad so that the 3pin connector is closer to the mobo, making it easier to hide.

A couple of 3pin sleeved fan extensions, maybe a sleeved 4pin molex extension and definitely a sleeved 6pin and 8pin pcie extension would help as well and neaten things up. (unless you feel like sleeving those psu cables yourself)



hot swap bay cover should be placed where it was (as stated above)

Thanks a lot, I'll spend the time I have no idea what to do with (when I'm without the PC :>) on re-cabling and stuff! And as pointed out it was my first build so overall I'm happy It's working at least

Btw, the PCI wires are that far out because of LOTS of cables on the back --> another thing I'm fixing

Try and hide the DVD drives cables through the drive bay slots, route your fan cables from the top of the case up top where there is a little ledge with a hole near where your front panel cables come out, and also pull your cables more towards the back of your case.

Braided extensions might help you too Recluse...modright and nzxt make them, and I think they'd look great in white alongside that Gainward 580.
