Nice job on the front and back. The cables look tight behind the PSU, GPU cable isn't lagging and the 24pin cable is curved just right. All around nice job. 9.2/10SpecializedPro (Click to show)
GPU stacks! Time to get those cards wet! The cable management in this case is exceptionally good. Cables on the gpu run clean and some what uniformed with each other. Nice rig and clean cables. 9.5/10Frazz (Click to show)

Sleeved cables are a plus, but they still need to be executed correctly for a clean look. The area behind/under the ssd, behind the pump and the top behind the 5.25" bays can use a little cleaning. If you can route your cables that are behind/under the ssd behind the 5.25 bay, that will clean up that area. Even if you can't hide the Pump Cables, you can route it to where it looks clean. If you can get the other sleeved cables as clean looking as the 24pin cable, it would be that much better. Other than that, you have a really nice build. 9/10.JAM3S121 (Click to show)

You can't see it but in the top left cutout there is the cpu power and case fan power plug.
I'm not gonna lie, I like the purple lighting. From what I can see, the cables look really good. Everything looks tight and curved just enough. But the pics is a little dark, can't see what rest of the cables look like. 8.5/10Frazz (Click to show)

Although when I tucked everything together those pesky SATA and 4-pin molex cables were tied up and hidden from the HDD bay access hole, I really need the money to put the hardware that this case deserves in it.
As for Born For TDM's post, that is almost completely immaculate man, no doubt it is a 9.8 or 9.9 of 10. The only thing I would like to see is maybe hiding the second GPU's power cables behind the first, or even weave them together to get rid of that loop but keep the contrasting black and blue colours.
Use a zip tie to clean up the gpu cable. If you can hide the cables in the back of the mobo so it's not visible through the grommet holes. 8.5/10ekg84 (Click to show)

This is far from being done, I am setting the computer up right now (windows, driver, programs, transfering data etc..) and that was a quick job, heatsink and GPU will probably be ordered tonight. It's my brother computer I just built him today
Electrical tape on the 24pin cable FTW. I've done that a couple of time on my earlier builds. This is late, but I'm sure you're brother appropriates you building his computer instead of going to BestBuy. As far as the cables, not bad. I'd probably put the same amount of effort into a family build too. The cables I would clean up would be around the bottom grommet hole, I would route the cables over/under so their not as visible. If you wanted, you can run the 8pin cable behind the mobo so it's not as noticeable too and straiten up the cables under the mobo. Not bad though, 7.5/10.THC Butterz (Click to show)

1st Computer: other than the cables behind/under the 3.5" bay, the cables look pretty neat and tidy. Normally those cables wouldn't be visible, but the angle of the picture and the flash make bring them out of hiding. 8.8/10 2nd computer: This one is clean as well. The only two cables that stick out to me is the exhaust fan cable and the 8pin, wouldn't be bothered to try and hide them unless you had the time. 8.8/10 3rd computer: Nice 360 in the front! The gpu cables look really clean in the rig. Tucked away and uniform, nice job. I would rate this a 8.9/10 because I can see the cluster of cables behind the rad.

I wish my Sata power connectors didnt have so much extra length between plugs though, got that weird looping stuff going on...
I had the hardest time finding 6" sata cables in store so I had to settle for half meter cables.
Advice? Ideas? Both are appreciated. :3
If you have/get longer sata cables, you can run the sata cables through the grommet hole right next to the GPU and use a zip-tie's to keep it looking straight and tight. Since you don't, I would straiten those sata cables and use the zip-tie anchors to tie them down, I see two of them that you can use. Would probably look better than having them curved like you do now. Clean up the extensions on the 24pin and the GPU cable. Also try to hide the HDD cables. Only if you can. It's not worth it if it's gonna be a pain. Other than that, you have a good looking rig. 8.5/10Bmxant (Click to show)

The pic is a little dark around the PSU area and behind the bay's. But I can see enough to make a rating. The cables behind the PSU look clean and uniform. The GPU cables look pretty good, from what I can see. Proper use of grommet holes but the red sata cable sticks out more than anything else. I would try to straighten it out. 8.5/10Layd Dly (Click to show)

From the bottom to the top, this is clean cable management. I like how you ran the power/USB/Audio cables behind and under the mobo. The GPU cables, did you run that through the shroud? Because it looks like you did, which is SMART. LoL, a good idea and looks super clean. The sata cables are lined up and colors are matching. I see a black cable running behind the odd/hdd bays, but it not that noticeable since it's tucked away nicely. Nice job! 9.5/10.bdenpaka (Click to show)

Used grommet holes, sleeved extensions and kept the bottom wires clean. The only issues I have with this is the cable extensions, nice you have them, but would look a lot cleaner if you can possibly make them look uniformed. Nice build though. 9/10.Swag (Click to show)

Built my work PC today, didn't spend too long on the cables but I'm pretty happy with it. The fan controller under the drive bay is relocated from the rear vertical PCI slot as it was a mess with it there, this way I can keep all of the fan cables in one place and the molex doesn't look unsightly.
Everything in this case was done right. Proper use of grommets, tight cables from the bottom up, and even the cable on the CPU cooler is tightly tucked away. Other than the fan controller cables, a nice job all around. 9/10TempestxPR (Click to show)
haha, cute pug. My brother has two.
Your cables are clean, but can use some work. I would tighten up the PSU cables on the bottom and rought them through the grommet closes to the PSU. That way it'll free up the bottom of the case and show case the bottom green panel. I would tighten up the gpu cables and close that gap. Route the 24pin cable through the grommet closest to the 24pin connecter, it'll look cleaner with a nice curve. Not necessary but if you can probably route the cables better instead of shoving them inside the HDD cage. Not bad though, what kind of green did you use? 8.7/10CasperGS (Click to show)

Pretty tidy in there, minus the little red and yellow cables on the bottom that are visible. Route the cables around the bottom square hole so the cables aren't so visible. Use the grommet closest to the bottom mobo to hide the cable that goes to the Raid controller (not sure what it is)? Other than that, nice job. You use grommets closes the the connection points for a clean look. 8.7/10Fuggins (Click to show)

I'll rate what I can see since the side panel is on. The PSU cables behind the PSU look tight and clean. The GPU extensions could use a zip tie or two and maybe layered better for a cleaner look. The 24pin cable looks ok too. Could layer it for a cleaner look. Again, a clean looking rig and really not necessary unless you have the time or want to change the look. 8/10naved777 (Click to show)

Let me know if there are things that can be improved and suggestions for improving.

Ripped them out, kept the PSU and replaced the inside. For a case with absoloutley zero cable management, I don't think I did too bladly. Not to mention I had to use a 20 > 24 Pin, 4 > 8 Pin and 2 X Molex > SATA adapters..Another picture
The fans are all ghetto zip tied on, only ones I had spare and they are silent, nice to have a little airflow.
I like that first pic, really makes the cables look clean. I would tighten up the cables on the top and clean up the cables on the botttom with some zip-ties. Not bad though!

Not bad, no need for a modular PSU if it's looking that good. Unless you just want it, like most of us here on OCN.
As far as your cables, you did a nice job hiding most of the cables and keeping them clean with zip-ties. Nothing major I would change as the cables look pretty neat...unless you go sleeved. 8.5/10.Nemesis158 (Click to show)
oh man, looking good. A proper use of cable extensions and I see you're using an abundance amount of zip-ties. Like that the gpu extensions are comb to perfection. All around nice work. 9.3/10kcuestag (Click to show)

Acceptable, very much so. If you didn't take time to really put work into it, I'd like to see what it would look like if you did. Looks good in the front and the back. Not much I can think of to really improve the cables besides sleeved cables. Nicely done! 9/10. Gavush (Click to show)

No need for extensions, I've seen plenty of super clean builds on here with out extensions/sleeved cables. But, it is a bonus. Tighten up those front panel cables and try to run them parallel to each other for a clean look. You can also rout them under the mobo for a cleaner look. 8.5/10.Zeek (Click to show)

I have mixed feelings about this one. If you're going for "showing off my cables," then you did a nice job. I honestly dont know how to rate this one? So I would rate it 6/10 for having a unique look.Scott1541 (Click to show)

That's a really good idea, looks good too. I like how you have your gpu and usb3 cable paired with your 24pin. I would change the zip-tie to a black one, as the white one is really noticeable. The top fan cables can be tucked away and the front panel cables can look neater. 8.8/10.remixedMind (Click to show)

I would clean up the front panel cables, route them behind the mobo and through the PSU grommet hole. If you can rotate the cpu cooler so the cables are on the top, it would look cleaner. Get a non-90* sata cable or try to route the sata cable through the bottom grommet so it's not as noticeable. But for a server, since it looks ok as it sits. If you have the time, go for it. 7.5/10.

- My PCI-E cables are a little too short for my taste - I'd like them to stay behind the motherboard tray and come directly out to each card. So I'm figuring on making entirely new custom cables. However, if I fully single sleeve them, I'm thinking that they're going to be even bulkier than the current ones behind the tray. What about single sleeving them only where they're visible from the front, and sleeving them together behind the tray?
- Is this really clean enough and I'm totally going OCD trying to clean it up more?
Here's the current setup:
Would it be worth it, yes. But That's really up to you. I've seen many rig's on here that look good with out extensions/sleeved cables. In you're case, sleeved cables would really clean it up in there and give your build a better look. As it sits now, I would try to clean up your front panel cables. GPU cables would look better if they were straight. The back of the case looks really good though. Hope you work things out. 8.8/10.xxxaksxxx (Click to show)

An improvement on the second time around, but still looks pretty cramped in there. The 8pin can be routed behind the mobo, just doing that alone will improve the look in your case. The sata cables would look better in black as they are really noticble and bring a lot of attention to the clutter behind the HDD's. If you can tighten up the cables in that area and route them a little better, I think it'll clean it up nicely. 7/10.shadow water (Click to show)

Whoa, none of those cables fit behind the mobo tray? If not, you can try to tuck them away in HDD cage. It will restrict some airflow from the front intake fan, but at least your components can breath a little better. For now, it's a 5/10, only because i've seen worse.

Re-route the GPU cables through the back and Grommet hole and the 8 Pin behind the mobo tray. If you can't route it behind to mobo tray, try routing it behind and through the CPU cut-out and over the mobo. Most of the time it'll fit. If all else fails, buy extensions. Other than that, tighten up the front panel cables. 8.3/10KSIMP88 (Click to show)

Try to have the bend going in-between the HDD's, it looks like it'll fit. Would def. clean up that area. Route the 8 pin behind the mobo and through the CPU cut out, it'll should work.
