well, try to hide the cables behind things, and use some zip-ties to get the cables nicely together

Get a round pata cable, route your rear exhaust fan over the top.
That whole crows nest near you front intake fan needs to be cleaned up, see what you can route on the backside.
You can also cram wires in behind the PSU.
I also mounted my HDD in my floppy bay, makes it easier to hide the cables.

This is before.

http://www.overclock.net/attachment....1&d=1212366324

This is after. As much as I can do without making holes in the case, it isn't too bad for doing this. I only wish I had a red IDE cable to invoke more ATI fanboy orgasmicness. The cables are about as tight as a nun's arse however and the main power cable will need a good squashing to fit behind the tray. I reversed the HDD so I could cable it from the other side.

http://www.overclock.net/attachment....1&d=1212366324

Now I just have to find a way to get all this to fit flatly and neatly, any ideas of what to do with the little m/b cables? Thanks for looking.

Great before/after man! For the mobo wires, maybe try zip-tying them to the SATA plug and pulling both those cables (the mobo and the sata) in through the round hole behind the GPU card. Might make it a little cleaner?

That's an idea but as you can see, the circular holes are great for putting things through position-wise, but if you look at the 3rd picture there is no room between them and the other case side as they poke out about a cm, which is the gap i need to squeeze them cables into.

Tied all the cables back as far as i could.

http://www.overclock.net/attachment....1&d=1212465146

The m/b cables weren't too hard!

http://www.overclock.net/attachment....1&d=1212465146

And looks clean from the front.

http://www.overclock.net/attachment....1&d=1212465146

I love this case

http://www.overclock.net/attachment....1&d=1212465146

Importantly, the cover went back on without any fuss!

Sorry for the quality, I was using my phone.

That is it all done, sorry for the double post but I couldn't add more than 5 pics I want to just put in a red light or something so you can see the inside of the case glow!
post #2680 of 27686
Sorry for the bad pics, I'm waiting on a new lens for my camera, I'm stuck with my telephoto right now.. can't be closer than 3ft and I don't feel like moving my case around a ton just to get the right angles

Now that I'm finally officially done with my cables, howzabout some ratings?
