Post your "rate my cables" here - Page 588

post #5871 of 27675
I suppose usapatriot was the last person to post a shot, so I'll rate that cable management job.

6.5/10

The use of a drill, some gromets and/or c-channel would help a lot. It looks like you still have some good play in those cables/wires, so they could be routed behind the motherboard tray and through some holes.


I just finished a minor case mod/overclock project with my Thermaltake Armor which included cable management. I haven't completed the worklog yet, but I do have some before and after pictures on the cable management.

Before:
Attachment 105120 Attachment 105121

After:
Attachment 105126 Attachment 105127 Attachment 105128


They aren't very good pictures, but it shows what was done. I'll get some better pictures though. The inside of the case is so dark now I have to use the flash, but then the flash reflects on the paint... My camera skills are lacking apparently.

EDIT: I changed the 'after' pictures to some that were a bit better.

Well, I WOULD give you a 10/10, but my case (the last pics I took), which was about that same quality, earned me a 9/10, so that's what I'll give.

Do something with that fan cable? wire over your HSF.
post #5876 of 27675
Hiding wire in an Antec 900 takes a dremmel and precision. You have both.

8.5/10 my friend. Nice job. Love the black 90 degree Satas.

The reason i Giged you on your points is that you could have run that CPU wire under the board
