Nice.
I need to do this on my v2000/BP. TBH the stock cable management sucks. You'd think they'd have more space behind the mobo tray in such a huge case.

Well they aren't very fat so you wouldn't get much room. There's like a half inch with my new atcs 840, great case.

Truly, nicely done. I am nervous about hitting my V1000 with the dremel, but I know it needs it for proper cable management. Seeing yours makes me feel a little better.
Plus one to ya.

thanks for the compliments and rep guys!

all the lian li's i have seen have been really good blank canvases for stuff, i think they intentionaly leave them so that you can put cuts were YOU need them. every build has different needs and it is ugly to have a bunch of unused holes. :)

You can check out my album for blacking out your case. It will look even better with some UV reactive clear/blue and a UV light.

dont be nervous, it can only get better. lian li's are meant to be made your own. :) and even if your cuts are not perfect it will be better than having wild cables. (you can see that none of my cuts were very good, but it eded up looking decent anyway)

Very nice! I totally agree, every time I plug in my PCIE power cables after taking the time to route my other cables I die a little inside.

i was planning on sticking with the red/black theme of the motherboard instead of blue but thanks. :)

do you think i should paint all the insides black or red?

I intend to go water when i get the money and i will get red dye with clear tubing and some of those awsome batwing fans for the radiators

as to the UV lights, it is not to my taste, i do not like flashy stuff, i prefer the simple beauty. no lights for me, just simple and clean.

Nice work - now to continue to hack apart my V2010b....

I used the top corner hole for the fan controller cables also - but dont have anything else going down there - now i just need to find a cheap 8pin extention cable and i'll be good

nice job on the case but an off topic question. Does your 920 really need 1.39 for 4.0 cause that is really high for DO 920. Crappy overclocker?
