Here's my first attempt at cable management.. I saw this thread and was inspired.
A trip to the store and 51 zip-ties later, here's what I got.

Ratings and constructive crit are more than welcome
(Mind you it looks a tad better in person, and the power supply cables were entirely too stiff to work with, so I didn't put much effort into them as I'm getting a new PSU soon.)

Wow, you guys are getting really lenient. Seriously. I got an 8/10 for my rig, and you can't see a single wire that I didn't intend to be seen. Its ALL ran behind my mobo, and still got an 8/10.

I agree.
I personally give your rig a 10/10, and I'm quite shocked at the fact that stumped rated mine what he did.
Would you mind giving me a more non-lenient rating, pioneer?

I can do that, sure .

In all honesty, I'd give you a good and solid 7/10. Reason:

Your wires are managed to a degree. It doesn't look "flashy", however it does look like the wires are out of the way enough so that they don't affect airflow. That's the main point behind this (and bragging rights).

IDE cables are a pain to manage. There's a guide here somewhere about those. What you pretty much do, is using a razor blade, slice those wires up (without cutting the actual wires), and tie them so they are round or flat. You can achieve ALMOST the same size as a SATA cable with a good ol' ribbon IDE cable. Might want to give that a try if you've got some old ones laying around.

As always, put AS MANY wires as possible behind the motherboard. If that's not possible, run them AS STRAIGHT as possible. Curves and the sort, really don't look as good. Anybody can do a curve in a wire managed case. The straightness is harder to do.

Zip ties are your friends. I see you've met already.....now get up and personal with them!

And finally.....if all else fails:
I've found at "The Home Depot", they happen to carry some REALLY handy 1" square pads that have adhesive on the back and a hole in the front. They come in black or white. And their function is to hold zip ties into place. Might want to pick up a package of those and give them a try behind the motherboard tray, inside drive bays, anywhere else they WON'T be seen. Any little bit helps.

Also....if cables are too short to run them "properly" behind the motherboard, get some extenders. They're not too terribly expensive, and well worth it if needed. I absolutely LOVE my Apevia cases, just for cable management reasons. You can see where the wires come from the PSU, and straight behind the motherboard, and that's it.

Anyways, I hope this long winded response helps you out a little. When I leave reviews in this thread, I try to actually help improve, not just give a rating. All in all, yours looks 100% functional, its just not "dead sexy".

And thank you for the 10/10 on mine . I honestly expected about a 9/10 because my wires didn't go perfectly straight behind the motherboard...they were kind of angled. Other than that.....it really wasn't that hard after I got my 36" SATA cables.

EDIT:
Looks like you may need a dremel to get them wires BEHIND the mobo tray . Its possible, but you just need the right tools to do so. I couldn't even try to help there.....my Apevia cases already had really handy holes for wire management, lol. If a dremel isn't a possibility, just try to run them as straight as possible where they have to be seen.

Can i have a responce like that please?

Also: BittenReaper: You've done pretty well, but try and get those cables behind the motherboard tray/Drive racks
It will look much better then
