Where are those sata cables leading to by the way?

do you have some drives external or some such?

( as I used to stick a molex and a sata out the back of the case for backing up friends data)

To my vertical expansion slot of course! It gives me an external molex so I can play around with fans and 2 eSATA ports. I have a cable that goes straight from that molex to a hard drive (along with 2 cables that can go from those eSATA ports to a HDD).



I suppose I could put in a regular slot then route all of it's cables behind the motherboard tray, I may do that tomorrow.

monday i have this new one, first on Argentina an too expensive:banghead::banghead:
if you had cables showing, i would drive/fly to your house and beat you. This is one of the easiest cases to cable manage :D

I'm a newbie to computer building, this is my first build which i've nearly completed,just
ram to add now,

So i have no clue on any cable management, sorry if it's a disgrace to look at:banghead:
This case is a Antec 300
Any suggestions on what i can do?

http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm154/rockleez/DSC00336.jpg

having done a recent build with a 300, all i can say for you is cut a few holes.

The cpu and the front connectors can be ran behind the board or the tray. The 24pin is to thick, it would have to be individualy done.

Thats all i can honestly suggest on this case, it's a good case, but hard to work with for cables.

Hey guys, would it be beneficial to buy a piece of metal and some rubber grommets and fill up the area enclosed in red? I think it would make hiding cables really easy (like the 800D/Tempest Evo) and I'm itching to try but I'm not sure where to begin.

Definitely. If you could find a good way to secure the plate in there and if it matches the color and kind of metal already used in the case, it would look great with some 800D-type grommeted holes. Maybe you could get Corsair to send you a few so you'll have the real thing in there.

do you feel upto cutting some holes into the mobo tray if not then there's not a lot you can do to hide those cables other than maybe make a plate to fit in over the top of your cables

also why is your PSU the wrong way up the fan should be facing down

If i face the PSU down it over heats because it can't suck air. I would have to cut a hole in the bottom of the case so it can get some air. i don't feel like cutting but i will consider it this summer.

Point out where i would need to cut please :toast:

I didn't realize your case didn't have the vent hole in the bottom thats gotta suk :nutkick:

also can you fit the 4/8 pin cpu power cable under the mobo and out at the top if its long enough to do it that is

looks like this summer i have some work to do. I may have to get a longer cable for the 8pin so i can do like you said. It would make things so much easier if i cut like 3 holes and get some modders mesh..
I am thinking the part that isn't covered (running the HDD wires) behind some mesh(small hole) and get some larger hole mesh and use to cover the hole that i am going to have to cut in the bottom of the case for the PSU. You think that will make things look better?

My cable management at the moment. I'm thinking I'm going to try and route the internal speaker/power button cables via the hole where my PSU cables are routed right now.



Any more ideas?

I'd be tempted to just cut a small hole just below the bottom edge of your mobo and feed them out there right where it's indented

^^ Agreed. It's harder to make a mATX mobo look good when the holes in the case are meant for a full-size ATX mobo. If you cut new holes, you can buy edging at computer shops online (I may even have some laying around I never used) to keep the holes neat and the wires from getting cut. I would suggest sleaving the smaller wires so everything matches (makes them blend in more instead of sticking out).

I'd cut holes, but I intend on having a ATX board here in not too long. I like the sleaving idea... I might just have to do that.

ok i was making recommendations on the current mobo so if your going with an ATX mobo then coming out where the PSU cables go in makes more sense

and some sleeving would just tie it all in and make it look like it's meant to be

I am going to sleeve all my PSU cables UV orange, I was wondering if it is cheaper to buy the sleeve kits or buy couple feet of each different size I need individually. Also, would it be cheaper if I buy the UV reactive sleeving or spray paint them with fluorescent orange since it would be the same under a UV light.

i Don't know what the costs are where you live as I'm in New Zealand but here the Kits are usually cheaper than buying it all separate

I don't know about the cost, but I don't think paint's gonna last long on a flexible sleeve.

LOL beat me to it just reread his post i saw that and then thought Yeah NA not a good idea although leave the cable black and paint the inside of the case with fluoro orange could be interesting :slap:
