    Oh I know, my friend and I tried sleeving his 24pin for the Cosmo Glow build and it was very frustrating for us, plus it is time consuming.

    I'm in Oregon, it'd be a bit of a drive for you T77. Don't you have my address still? :laugh:

    Not going to do paint.

    Going with "carbon fiber" tape. I think it would go better, plus it won't chip, etc.

    I know, I know...I'm just giving you a hard time.:p

    How about that 6 pin pci-e cable, can you maybe run it behind your mobo and down through the bottom hole?

    ...and how long are your sata cables?

    My sata cables are like 18" or something, pretty long. The top one for my ESATA port might be longer, no idea really.

    As for routing the 6 pin cable like that, I don't like the idea of cables behind my mobo.

    18" nice, well how about running the sata's straight down to the bottom and cross the base behind the blue fan.

    Regarding the pci-e cable, are you worried about heat from the board burning the housing or sharp solder points cutting into the cable? That portion of the board shouldn't get that hot and if the cable doesn't move around much it should be fine from cuts.

    Eh, I'd just rather not put it there. Cables behind the mobo make me nervous.

    As for the SATA cables, what do you mean? Like a reverse "L" shape?

    Well exactly like an "L" shape, just to eliminate the look of cables going across the open space. Then you can ziptie the pci-e cable to the 24 pin cable and route the together behind the back tray. I can visualize it well and it looks great in my brain.:)

    Well, this was the best I could do, the top ESATA cable wasn't long enough to do it your way T77, so this is how it turned out.

    Why don't you trying digging up a piece of steel or aliminum and putting behind your HDD cage. You can hide the wires back there and they won't be visible anymore from the front. :toast:

    That part isn't such a big deal when my case side is on. I can only see the mobo tray area. The HDD bays aren't visible.

    I'm not sure if it can get any better than that though, unless you make some holes so that you see less of the wires. Maybe some sleeved extensions from NZXT, they are super cheap.

    This is what it looks like with the case side on.

    [​IMG]

    I'm happy with the look for now, need to get that tape I was talking about. :laugh:

    As for the NZXT sleeved cable extensions, I have thought about it before, but I think I'm fine as is.
