Glad to hear I'm not the only one that has to literally sit on their Apevia Cases! Rofl, I've got 4 Apevia cases, and 3 out of those 4 I have to sit on them to close the rear side panel. The other one is a full tower (Apevia X-Pider), so its MUCH easier to do good cable management....considering its got 6 hard drives in it at the moment, going for more.

ok I ran the 24pin around back and replaced the stock intake fan with a 79CFM fan. I put the stock fan in the in the cd bays blowing toward my cpu. Side panel snapped on with no trouble I was really surprised.

Yes those are zip ties. I did not know how else to put that fan there. If you know another way I would love to do something other than that.

Also anything you else you could tell me for cable management. I know I need an extension for the GPU I plan on getting one. I really dont want to cut holes in the mother board tray just in case I change mother boards. Someone else mentioned sleeving the usb's, hdd light, etc How do you do that without cutting the wires?

Thank You for your comments.

Fortunately, you can buy heatshrink sleeves that start out oversized, but as the name implies, you evenly distribute heat over them, and they shrink nicely. I had a job where I had to shrink heatshrink with a blowtorch, and we had to be careful to do it evenly. hehe

I wasn't downing the zip ties, I've used them for fans before as well. Although some clear ones might not stick out as bad for you.

Really the GPU and the header wires (usb/hdd light/ etc) are all thats left. Like 5cheese said you can get oversized heat shrink to cover those wires. Also, most of the wires will come out of the pins using a small screwdriver or something if you want to do it that way.

Looks good though man!

Well, I didn't mean to get oversized heatshrink. It may not shrink properly. I just meant that it's nice that heat shrink starts out big so we can easily side it on and then shrink it.
post #2430 of 27674
Do you guys know what size heatshrink that would be? I guess they measure it in inches. I was thinking 1/8th but I dont want to go to small. In the process of ordering heatshrink and an extension cable for gpu. Any other things you guys can think of while I am doing this??

Thanks again guys
