Well first I used a 1 inch hole saw to cut several holes out behind the motherboard and throughout the case, to allow for better cable management. Then I put rubber grommets on the walls of those holes that I cut out, that way the cables I run through there wont get snagged or damaged on the rough edges. I also had to pull out the dremel to cut into the case a little to ease the cable management. I took a close up of where I cut out. After some heavy planning I went through and routed the cables anywhere could where they would be the least visible. I dont thing anyont notice but I fit a 120mm fan down in front of the lower hard disk drive cage. In order to do that I had to remove a piece that was held down by rivets, but they easily popped out with a flat head screw driver. I will make another log of my earlier cable management pics too so others can see how that was done. I have lots of pics and several revisions of cable management on the Antec P180. To top it off I painted my case in mid-February to give it some added luster, lol. I used Dupli-Color bumper black and also the Sandable Primer. I included some pics of the primer process and a few pics of the painting. PM with question, comments, suggestions, etc.
