Is this a decent cable management?

When I first build this PC, I didn't do much on the cable management because I'm a lazy ass, so yesterday i decided to actually try but for some reason it still looks horrible compared to many I seen from here...

I don't know if its fine, I mean the cables don't get in the way of the airflow, but it looks really ugly, what do you guys think?

Takes a lot of practice and time to make those perfect cable managements you have seen, your's is not so bad, it's certainly better than mine. =P

you might be able to wrap the fan wire on the back fan around the fan and still reach the plug.

see if you can feed what looks like the front panel connectors either into the front or into your drive bay.

For some reason i can't see that picture it's just gray. But the other pictures work fine. The top corner were you pic what picture you want it shows the picture it shows it but the big picture is gray.

You need to run more cables, especially the 8 pin CPU power cable, behind the motherboard like this: http://cdn.overclock.net/2/2c/2c1f8bdb_Behind_Small.jpeg

Then you can get the front looking like this!

I wish I could get the back nice and neat like that.

800D has this stupid bar in between the psu area and the rest of the case on the back part so it doesn't lay as nice as that case.

Some people here are very neat. For me personally, as long as everything is done properly and it does not get in the way of airflow, I really could not care less about cable management. To be honest, accessibility of the different connectors is more important than how it looks. But I am kind of a "do not care about how the case looks and keep it out of sight anyway" kind of guy.

I wouldn't care but the backpanel kinda bulges out a bit because the main PSU cable is thicker than the space behind the backpanel, and some of the wires are blocking the backplate access to the back of the mobo where the CPU is.
