take it off and use a black marker pen on it then put it back on it wont stand out so much then but other than that it looks good ... you might want to look into some nice cable extensions for the PCIe 6pin and power cables that may help with the stiff cable from your PSU

i can use the old flex force cables that came with my altru 3x 1000 watt psu they bend a lot better then these new ones. the only problem is the 24 pin one is flat like a ribbon and may not rout behind the mobo tray as easy. using a black marker on that white ribbon is a good idea.:toast:

wow I never knew this thread existed. I got a problem for my build and need advice.

ive flipped my psu up the other way, and now there is no space for cables between mobo and psu.



ddd said about clips, so that's an option. I may even just lose the cables and start from mobo lol

You could cable tie them together, real thin cable ties so they don't stick out like a sore thumb, so that it just looks like one cable running neatly along the bottom of the mobo?

If the fan is not a cheapo 4-pin molex only job, he has a fan header on the motherboard he can connect it to.

Either way these cases were designed before people cared much about what their computers looked like on the inside.

I've got a drain line tucked just under the front of the rad but forgot to show it.

SSD is backwards just because of the right angled connecter i have, i'm not looking for help but it's the tidiest i've ever had the back of a case.

That case definitely helps. I don't think I've ever seen a case that had that much room behind the mobo tray.

Does it matter what brand of cable extender you use? Is there a better quality brand? I have an Antec PSU and only have access to a few brands of extender, namely, BitFenix and Phobya, will they still work with the Antec PSU?

Yes they'll work fine as the molex connector on the ends of cables are a standard whether it be a power connector for SATA or PATA , 6 or 8 pin GPU power, 24 pin mobo power, 4/8 pin eps/atx power connector... Just aslong as you remember that any extender you buy will need to go from the end of the stock cable to whichever connector you need to use
