Updated. Only added 2 members since February, guess these things are getting harder to find, or less popular, or both... frown.gif

I don't think those would fit, actually.

Hey guys,
I finally got a case going
I'm not the best with cable management, I know, still lots to do, but made a start. I need to work on hiding more of the sata, power & fan cables
Ive got sound card in between graphics cards, I couldn't get sound cable or molex to go over, so i just put them through
I need to get long sata cable to push them behind the tray
Need to get extension for PCIE cables to put them behind also

Henners. Well the cabling isn't "artwork pretty" but I'm a functional, nobody's gonna see it anyway kinda Old Guy. It's not so bad to start with, but a little tidying and it doesn't look like it would impede airflow. Here's my case cabling, before the GPU and other expansion cards. The GPU does not have a power cable to the PSU so that's not a cabling issue.

I found that routing behind the tray and also tying cables down behind the tray controls the clutter.

Have you tested temps with and without the extra two fans inside the lower drive bays? I've wondered if the two fans blowing in and the bottom fan blowing up creates some turbulence that disrupts airflow to the top exhaust fans.

Howdie all, can you sign me up as Cool Master ATCS 840 club member. I have finally got around to posting my pics, as I have got my case completed with the components I wanted. As far as the rating of this case, I would think that it would be one of the best, and pretty hard to come close to it, with most modern cases today. There are a few flaws which could be rectified (which goes with practically any case) but all and all it looks eloquent and is a dream to work on...just love it. Still got some cable management to do (sleeving) and try to hide more wires. The only mod I have done is reverse the cage that the power supply sits on, (if a fan is mounted in front of the power supply,on the bottom the screen is not accessible for cleaning), so now the screen can be pulled out from the back of the case. (there is a guy on YouTube that shows you how to do it with this case, should you be interested)

Ya, I got lots work to to do still

How do you & the other guys here get the sata cables so straight out from the mobo to around the cage?

The other thing is the front connection cables, need to work out how to get more around behind

Oh, about the fans,
Well, I've tried something different, all those are intakes tongue.gif
The only exhaust fan is the one behind CPU cooler & I get better temps
Before my CPU/GPU would idle around 35-40 mark, load temps 50 CPU, 65 GPU

Now, both idle at 28-30, CPU Load 45, GPU 55

I have tried the following & got worse for each
Both Top exhaust
Front Top Intake
Removing those 2 behind the cage
etc etc

We don't have air con at our place & it does get faily warm during the day, so getting better temps, so sticking with this
I put filters on the top & extra at the front

Henners, if you look at my second pic above (from behind the MOBO tray) you'll see at the front side of the vertical case frame which is just in front of the tray I did a simple little mod with an aluminum angle with holes drilled in it for thin cable ties. I spaced those holes specifically for the SATA cables so they could be tied down straight out from the MOBO and lying flat. One goes up behind the tray and through the cable hole in the tray to the SSD which is mounted to the front of the tray. (You can see that in the first pic). Three other SATA cables (blue) go to two HDDs and one optical drive in the upper 5.25" bays. Another SATA cable (red) goes to the e-SATA port on the top I/O panel.

In that second pic you can also see the cables from the top I/O routed in the back and in the first pic you can see the fan controller cable coming up from behind the tray to the bottom of the MOBO (a short exposed path). Generally I tried to route cables where they would be out of site and/or could be tied down to case frames or struts. I think some of the small fan cables were even routed between the MOBO and the tray.

Hi Everyone,

First, had to open my 840 for a rebuild and discovered this thread/"club"...it's helped a lot. In reading the helpful posts, I would like to be a member of the ACTS 840 club. I just love this case, which by the way, is the only re-usable component I could use for the Intel workstation I'm building. Hopefully, this will be my last one for a while:D.

First, due to where my system is located, the room starts boiling by mid-afternoon and doesn't cool off until after 8 pm!!! I live in an older house where my study gets the rising sun and there's NO air conditioning...so I had to change the CPU cooler from the Antec H2O 920 to Swiftech's H220, as well as add different case fans for exhaust [in addition to taking off the ill-thought-out interior filters]. Also, I'm having a devil of a time with my cable management--both inside and out!

I'd appreciate any help and suggestions with managing all the cables I have. Not only does it look bad, but they reduce air flow and those outside can cause shots due to weight on some [even though I try to keep them off each other].


Thanks,
Programming Kat

Hello. Welcome. I'm not sure on the way you setup your airflow orientation but those fans behind the drive bays I feel should be pulling air from the front intake without those dust filters. If you're just using them as substitutes for fan grills to protect your cables then you should get rid of them and get actual fan grills. Even if they are oriented the other way...you should just get rid of them since dust filters are meant for all external intake fans in my opinion. Cable management in general requires lots of time, patience, and research. Grab yourself some Velcro ties, zip ties, or stickies...these are going to be your friends when you start putting everything together. If you have the white cable tying stick-ons (whatever they're called) that came with the case itself then that's even better....you just have to choose wisely in where you end up putting them. I used to have the same Cooler Master drive cage you have but got rid of it since it made cable management even more tough...I still put in the work though.

The ATCS 840 size itself made cable management very difficult but in your case...you really need to pull those cables toward the back of your motherboard tray. That's why our cases have a decent gap on the right side panel (to hide cables behind). Having more equipment myself made it easier for me to hide cables but if you are really serious about managing your cables then do what is necessary to route cables if it means purchasing longer cables, extenders, or generally better hardware (my new power supply made things easier).

Here's the old setup of mine using the current drive cage you have now...

Then some old pictures of my current setup...

I'm going to be water cooling my CPU soon so I'll post pictures of the new setup when I get everything together (a couple weeks or longer). I hope those pictures can give you an idea of how you may be able to route cables.
