    Hey man, I used to have that exact same case, and struggled with cable management for quite some time. The key is more zip ties, and hide as MUCH behind the HDD and 5.25" bays as possible. Also, towards the end of having it the case, I took out the bottom HDD cage, that helped as well. Here are the best pics I have of the cable management.

    Well, the case was black with the same interior as yours when I bought it. The black front and sides are just glossy the way they came. But I painted the interior myself.

    As far as the PSU mess, perhaps get a modular PSU? Mine is modular so I only had the cables I need plugged in. Maybe if you took off the tubing and used a few zip ties.

    I have future plans for the case. I am saving it to build a system for my soon-to-be-wife. I am going to again repaint the interior a pearl white, and have purple LED's. As far as cables go, however, I am going to cut a hole in the mobo tray right in front of the PSU, and route the cables behind it. There is a lip between the mobo tray and the HDD/5.25 cages, and I am going to cut off a section of that lip as well, so as to make room for the cables, and still be able to close the other side of the case.

    Oh nice, I am always jealous of black insides it looks so slick.

    I might try changing things up with zip ties, I've already done that with other areas, its just from the PSU area there isnt anything to tie them too and fyi my psu is modular actually, its the 750w thermaltake evo

    AH, very nice. Well hey, I upgraded to a Lexa S (as well as some interal upgrades) and it has a similar sleek and sexy look as the apollo, but much better cable management, cooling, and a black interior. =)

    I did a little custom tie wrap mode in the middle to improve airflow a bit with a 120mm fan. :)

    Just got my new PSU from Trickson today! He had previously cut the 4 pin on the 24pin ATX plug to run a water pump but after some nice soldering and electrical tape, Its brand new! Also got 2x1GB DDR2 667 Crucial sticks from a friend until my Corsairs come back!

    Thanks guys! Should get the case either tomorrow or Friday I hope. Still no word back from Asus but it said on the RMA page that it could take 72 hours for them to respond.

    hope you do a better job with the cable management this time round because that lot looks like it was done by an spastic weaver bird
