PC Cord and cable management 101

#21Cobra1010Posted 3/28/2014 8:41:18 PM
Do many of you guys actually tie up the cables with zip wires n stuff? Cause i just shove all my cables behind the back panel. It sure looks clean on the motherboard side but the back is pretty terrible but i'll never see any if it until my next upgrade.

Cable management is one of the first things you sacrifice when you buy a cheapo case.

If you can't get it pretty, spray paint the window:)


Or when you buy a non-modular PSU, damn you GS800 :(


True, although my PC P&C 750W is non-modular, and I did ok. HAF XM has a plastic box in front of the PSU that you can bundle spare cables under, zip tie them neatly, and they're nicely out of sight and out of the way.

I've kicked the can to dust. Any neater would require a bigger case. The PSU is non-modular so I could cut the shielding, but then I get care bear stare.

Who cares really unless you are pitching the hell out of the cables?

Well... you don't want it bulging out too far and its really the true test of dedication because its so easy to just let everything stay a mess back there since its hidden.

I wasn't being completely serious tho more of a joke.
