Is there any possible way I could make this build any cleaner? Any advice?
zip ties and round PATA cables You should be able to get those cables closer together with zip ties.
Ah! Thanks. Thought they only had those fat and ugly PATA cables only.
Also depending on how long your cables are you might be able to turn the hard drives around and work with the cables there.
you can make the pata cables rounded, put the hard drive in "backwards" and route power and data cables in the front of the case. try to route the case cables on the other side of the hard drives. as for the one that seems like it has no room to stretch, I don't think there's anything you can do about that one, except maybe extend it some how and route it with the others.
I will try this, but I highly doubt I am able to do this for the 3 drives on the bottom as there is a fan directly in front of the HDDs. Will definitely put more zip ties and get those round PATA cables.
You can make some ugly round ones from the flat ones you have. You carefully slice the cable and stack them and put electrical tape on them. Ugly, but efficient nonetheless.
And he might be abler to fit some of the cables under the mobo too. For example the 8 pin cpu connecter and the 3 fatish grey wires.
This is true.
board-connecting case cables could probably be routed under the motherboard....lots possible there for cable management at least.
