I'm not "modding" my PSU either, or putting holes in it as posted above. I'll just leave it and do everything else everyone recommended, besides the PSU flip.
thats why abit of plywood comes in handy when i had my pc on the floor i grabbed a removable shelf from a small tv unit and just used that for my pc to sit on because i noticed how hot the carpet gets even with my psu being at the top of my case

First, flip your psu, you will have more length out of your cables.

Try tying up the cables in loops with zip ties, and hide them with your own cardboard cover.

Or if you have a roof mounting for the PSU, this is possible as well:



This is my rig BTW.

Note how I can hide the cables between the PSU and DVD drive given enough space.

Took me 2 hours to do mine. Now I go to get more zip ties and do some more work DX

Tomorrow is also going ot be a nice day so I will take better pictures of everything I did.

USE EVERY HOLE YOU CAN FIND TO ROUTE WIRES.

BE CLEVER

USE ZIP TIES AND TIE MOUNTS (have a dremel ready to shave and cut them to your need)

DUCT TAPE IS GODLY (really handy, but use GOOD duct tape like guerrilla tape).

PATIENCE

IMAGINATION


All of those are what you need XD

I have everything but.

A) Zip ties.

B) Dremmel.

I still think I'll be okay. Duct Tape has served me well on many occasions.
