Dont know if its been done yet, but here is a quick walk through on how to do cable management with the TT Tsunami Dream Case. Very little modification to the case is even needed. Of course I know there are many on this site that can blown my work away. Here is what I did.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />

Heres where the most technical part of the install is. Opening the back side of the case..... <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />

Starting to remove components.<br />

Asus M2N32 WS Pro - Ain't she purdy?<br />
<br />
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v649/7mgtemk3/CableManagementWorkLog005.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
After all components are removed here is the mess I am Left with <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />

Here is the Beautiful part, there is a small opening right next to the PSU that all the cables can be routed through. <img src="/images/smilies/cool.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Cool" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />

Life is easier to unscrew the PSU and move it to the right. Any of you who own this case know you have to remove the top Media panel to pull it out.<br />
<br />
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v649/7mgtemk3/CableManagementWorkLog019.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
This little lip must either be cut off or bent in order for the side panel to shut when you are finished. I chose to bend it <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />

The cable for the Rear case fan can be run through the small hole in the back top corner.<br />
<br />

This is a good place to hide cables, it will be concealed when you re-install the 3.5 bays.<br />
<br />

Here is the mess I have when I am done fishing the cables around back.<br />
<br />

Here is what it looks like inside the case<br />

okay dont laugh, this REALLY works. I did this to hide the case alarm cable under the bottom lip. Yes, that is really a paper wad, it doesnt move, you cant see it, and it holds the cable where you want it. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> <br />

Look how nicely that worked. <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" /> <br />

Although I had to remove the front case fan to hook them up.<br />
<br />
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v649/7mgtemk3/CableManagementWorkLog027.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
Power cable hookup.<br />

Right angle sata cables are a lifesaver here <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v649/7mgtemk3/CableManagementWorkLog029.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
Now both drives are connected, and I still have enough room to slip a piece of paper there <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />

<br />
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v649/7mgtemk3/CableManagementWorkLog034.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
Still sits nice and flush.<br />
<br />
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v649/7mgtemk3/CableManagementWorkLog035.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
All done. <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
<br />
I know there is better here on the site, but maybe this can make it a bit easier for someone who is going to purchase this case in the future.<br />

Very detailed guide. I've been using that cable-behind-the-PSU trick for a long time, but it's getting a bit harder when my (Secondary rig's) PSU cable's aren't very long.

Well, I have been running old school Cases (my two server cases) for about 4 years now, so Having nice cable management in them is almost impossible. LOL so this is my first time spotting that hole behind the PSU.

okay now i dont feel so stupid. When I pulled the ram out and stuck it in the other slot and booted, it said single channel mode, when both ram sticks are in the same color slot, it says dual channel.....so I didnt read it wrong the first time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
