Moocowman, looking good. If the IDE cable was gone it would look even cleaner. Don't you just hate how big those things are? 8/10

SpykeZ, not bad. 7.5/10

Dir_d, very clean. 9/10

Lord Mirko, very nice. Looks clean and tidy. 8.5/10

Here's something you could do with the IDE cable (other than ditching it for a SATA Optical drive) http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...ble-guide.html

That exhaust fan cable looks to be long enough to route under the motherboard. You could braid your on/off, reset, hdd cables together.

Good effort on the AFTER. 8/10

For the SATA I will do, and 24 - pin when I do my 6 month cleaning changing TIM and so on.

Sometimes I come to a point where I just want to cut those cables.Should have bought a Modular PSU, but now I see is better to have more, also when I do my upgrade to another HD 5850 and a ssd(when there are 34nm) the cables are there.Thanks for the feedback.

9/10. I think its the best you can do with that setup!

I bought a Crossfire 4850 setup for my 939 3500+ setup. It was fun! Also allowed me to upgrade without having to buy a new card. Nothing wrong with that.
That was the best I could do with the SATA's lol. I had to remove 1 of the HD cages and then turn the other one so I could route the cables to the back. Theres not a lot of options for cable management on this case without me having to cut into.

As for the upgrade, I actually didn't see any performance gain going from my 8800GT super clock to my 5850, and this was after I OC'd my cpu. That's how bad the bottleneck is lol. The reason im running the 5850 instead is it runs hella cooler since the GT has a stupid single slot cooler that doesn't do squat, and runs about 15-20C hotter

What I could do with in that case with that motherboard I'm afraid. Those SATA cables are really visible, but I couldn't hide them further since the routing hole was not aligned with the SATA slots, and so I had to route them upwards to the hole in that way so that I would not break the connectors or the slots.

I'm gonna remove the cathodes though, they look like crap, and the cables are impossible to route nicely in this case. Too short, to visible.

I didn't use a single cable tie while I re-routed the cables though, could have gone a bit better if I had ^^

6/10. The bottom is a mess.

I could do better as soon as I get my cable tie mounts, and get my new HX650!

Where's your video card? 8/10, you just need to zip-tie those two Sata cables coming from the motherboard together so they look neater, clean up those cables on the bottom left of the motherboard and sleeve the case fans cables.

I know, and that's partly (not entirely) due to those crappy cathodes. If you look at the wires, it is mainly those that look messy. Plus that the molex for the cathodes is really short and needs the connector down in the bottom compartment, making a mess.

Can't wait until I finish my upgrades and get a HAF instead, much more suitable for this setup.

That and the cables from the power supply. Try to zip-tie them tightly together, makes it look better.
