unplug all the power cables

plug in the 24pin, 4/8pin cpu power

pull the excess of those 2 cables to the top of the case and ziptie nicely (hide the 4/8pin cable behind the 24pin)

Plug the very last sata power connector to the sata drive

same with the dvd/cd drive

pull the rest of the cabling to the top of the case and ziptie nicely and tuck them in the open area above the dvd/cd drive

pull the front/top panel cabling(power/reset, leds and usd) tightly and nicely ziptie them to look as if one cable

now plug in the ide cable and (try to) lay it flat and tuck the connector in the middle of the ide cable under the motherboard if possible.

plug in the sata cable and collect all the extra cable into a nice bundle and ziptie nicely.

To start: Get those dangling wires at least hidden in one of the upper bays, and your W/C lines are way too long. Cut them to a shorter length that looks good.

Flip the freezer 7 around (if you can, looks like it might get too close to your reapers the other way, I can't tell). I it that way you have until I realized it was competing with the rear fans expulsion (assuming your rear is exhaust).

Yes The AC7 gets in contact with the reapers and i have changed the direction of the fan on the backside of the PC to blow air in.. so the AC7 gets plenty of air and combined with the rear fan they even cool the ram.. the fan on top sucks air out

I'm having some troubles hiding the cables inside my Antec 900.

A picture first, then a few explanations.

http://img.techpowerup.org/080605/d938e063.jpg

This is the bottom of my case.
Antec 900, Thermaltake ToughPower 750W, Q6600, Tuniq Tower, HD3870X2, IDE Hitachi HDD, SATA LG DVDRW.

Now, the wires from the power supply are really stiff, it was really hard to bend them for starters. Also, the 8pin wire to the motherboard is really short, and it has to run down over my motherboard.
Not to mention fans 4pin connectors, and the graphics cards aswell.

Any tips?

Reorder your wiring, make the top drive's SATA cable behind the bottom drive's cable, it shouldn't loop over-it looks bad. Route the SATA wire thats curling up for the top HDD behind the HDD cage, so the excess wiring is out of sight. You seem to have much space and therefore try to be a bit creative; top HDD can be rotated 180* with the wires converging on the HDD from either the top or bottom.

If you had 1m long SATA cables... Your system could look a whole lot better.
