Corsair 650D cable management - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Try cable tie anchors, they work wonders for holding cables closer to the back of a motherboard tray.

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.
I totally know what you mean. As much as this case has good cable management features, those io cables for usb3 and hot swap bay are long and huge. I had hard time with the cable tie holdings as well and there really isn't many. I had to have a couple tries before I was half satisfied with the management results. I'm still not completely satisfied so I'll be trying to make it more organized soon.

Hey,
I just finished cabling my 650D (all new rig):

By mofoo99 at 2011-05-04
and

By mofoo99 at 2011-05-04

Some tips:
- i routed the usb3 cables through the other side of the case. There's a lip at the top that they happily sit in (with some electrical tape to hold em in place). They are completely invisible and only 4-5" stick out of back.
-I started tying down power first since they're the bulkiest. I then just used plastic twist ties (from all the hw I ordered) to secure everything else down.
-I sort of braided/twisted the front port cables together for neatness
-I also had problem of panel sticking out a bit and had to ensure cables were not overlapping and any connectors (e.g. molex) were flat.

Took me about 2 hours of patience and testing
But I think it's worth spending the time doing it nicely.
Good luck.

I want all black cables ! I was tempted to get a really really good marker pen and black out some of the coloured cables! But I wasn't sure it was safe lol.

Unfortunately I cannot see any of your pictures on here, image sharing sites are blocked with my work's proxy. If you were to attach a picture directly to the post, though.... .
