    That is a good idea but wouldn't that be overkill on the UV orange since the blacklights will light up the whole entire case haaha.

    I am going to attempt to sleeve my first PSU but I have no idea how many feet of sleeving I need. For the ATX power I will sleeve each wire individually, so I will need quite a bit of 1/8. I will sleeve almost every cable in my case including the fan 3-pin wires/SATA cables. How many feet of 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8 sleeving do I need? As for heatshrink, I'm not sure which sizes to get either.

    Why cable manage the back of your case? Usually you look only at the front. My cable managment is great from the front but from the back its a jungle :roll:

    maybe some type of mobo stand offs with custom plates cut and drilled to fit between the stand offs to hold the cables flat against the mobo tray

    not a very wise idea;)... higher standoffs means the mounting for vga´s and all pci cards will be higher too, and also the I/O panel will be,so the mobo may wont fit. those plates would have to be REALLY thin to be negligible:)

    No I meant for behind the mobo TRAY not right behind the mobo lol there's a whole lot of unused mobo stand-off holes on the tray and you can screw stand-offs in on backside of the tray

    I would need some cable mangement on the backside but I am too lazy now.
    I don´t even know if you can make so many cables look cleanly routed?

    now if I could just find me a half dozen AC ryan SATA cables with 90° ends that are the same type as the ones I have that'd be great and would look a lot tidier
