Corsair 650D cable management

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if fellow froum users with a Corsair 650D can show me there cable management for there case as mine is a complete mess at the back and i dunno how to go about getting it tidy looking. I know most wont care bout the rear side but i dread having to open it up as its a nightmare getting it closed again.

As long as the side panel fits, don't worry about it.

Velcro Straps are also not a bad idea.

Try your best to organize the cables by type or whatever and then zip tie the cables tight.

The velcro ties that came with my PSU worked wonders. You can just buy some velcro from the store or buy some tie wraps.

Better hope your side panel doesn't start denting in the future.

I'll give the cable ties a try but the psu wires are stiff and don't move very easily!! Plus the wires built into the case are stupidly long!!

I have the exact same problem, my side panel won't even fit on, and I've wasted all of the cable ties, so I'll probably need to get some more, the cable management system in the case is actually pretty good, but all of the cables you need to use for a higher end system, with 2 hard drives etc... is a bit ridiculous.

I feel like the cables they put into the case to control the USB3's and front I/O's are huge and have no logical path around the side panel behind the motherboard, the locations of the cable tie holes don't make sense!

Maybe it's just me being a failure haha!

I'll just have to have another go.
