whats wrong man? by the look of the picture it seems that your did a stand up job with the wiring. I don't see where your problem lies.

Slade, It's majorly OCD. I think you did as always, a great job!

What kind of space you looking at behind the motherboard tray?

Trust me, if you saw inside my case, I have most of my wires sleeved with red tape and I rounded my stock flat IDE cables, doesn't look "horrible" because I have a red ccfl and its in scheme, but it looks bad compared to that!

Can you not put the GPU poer plug though the drive bay for the HDD ?. OR betwean the bay and mobo tray ?.

Cost money but maybe a dremel would help a little with the cable a little.


All though i think you did a grand job..
