Cable Management?

I've done some searching so I'm very sorry if this is here somewhere, is it just me or do most links just take you to Newegg Mall?  Anyways, I recently got a Raidmax Smilodon Dirktooth case and an Asus 775 nForce 750i SLI ATX mobo.  Does anyone have tips and tricks for cable management with this?  I......

I would like to suggest you (Velcro Straps) for perfect cable management because I have read somewhere about this issue. I am aware with that because I recently get Need Help In Management Assignment Writing service for the similar project.

OK, PSU's out, no problem, just saw a gap and got curious, but then thought it probably gets pretty toasty.  So far I've managed to pretty well hide all the cables except for the window fan, and the way things are hidden now it may not work to run it's cable to that power connector, but I'll give it a shot.

Personally I woul not tuck cables above it, another good solution would be velcro straps, where I work thats how we cable manage both our pcs in each room, and our MDF (Main Distribution Frame) and IDF (Intermediate Distribution Frame) network rooms.

Maybe a dumb question here, but would the power supply be too hot for me to tuck cables up above it?  It's a 500w, and I plan to upgrade later.  This all feels weird to me, I'm actually very knowledgeable about computers, but it's my first time building.

Well it can be only the bar or over the top. would be the only way in that case. And yes sleeves work well also. Its a mid tower so you will not have that much area to work with at times and the 2 rear fans sit close together.

I'm mostly trying to hide my fan power cables and power cable, if that helps at all.  Well, actually for the 120mm on the back and the two 80mm's on the window.  I can hide them in the enforce bar, but it makes it a tight space to open, and takes quite a bit of wiggling to keep from breaking wires.


I've got the front fans, USB, and Audio cables tucked away along the bottom of the case and tucked behind my front drive bays.  I have plenty of zip ties, looks like I may need to pick up some sleeving.

There is not much room for you to run the wires under the mobo. I would use Tie Wraps to start with. and try to run the cables down the side where the mobo tray is located. And try and tie it to the case. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
