    I'm sure you could cable manage this case perfectly behind the mobo tray, but for me it felt kinda impossible.



    Thanks for your constructive and useful feedback

    Good tip for that case is to remove the sleevingbag around the biggest cables and separate the wires as much as possible. If you get a bag of strips you could easily cable manage that case if you spend about 1 hour doing it. Do you have access to a Dremel multitool or similar?

    yep mini tight sleeves are a great way when it comes to cable management my case is pretty horrid when it comes to stock cable management (there's 2 placed next to the hdd hotswap bay and while they can hold a nice bunch they're in a bit of an annoying place when it comes to the upper compartment)

    As stated, you could make your own cutouts in that tray to route cables through.

    This could be a very bad idea for somebody that does not know what they are doing. One should do a lot of research if planning on cutting holes and running live wires through them.

    It's a very small end made of plastic. The vacuum cleaner isn't even that strong. So I can't see how static builds up from that (I thought it was only with metal ends).

    Static absolutely builds up in plastic. Using a plastic extension from a vacuum cleaner to clean the inside of your PC is never recommended.

    Oh.. Alright, seems I have to change that then.. (whoops)

    And you're right, we're sorry!

    When upgrading your components, how come you didn't spend an extra bit of money to get a decent case?

    Very.. Green! But you're not using a mouse pad? And is your audio 5.1? If so, where are your other speakers located? Bit curious. ;p

    Probably has them setup in the back where rear speakers are supposed to be. I see way to many 5.1 setups and 7.1 setups where all the speakers are right under the monitor for some reason.

And I don't claim to be the king of cable managing, it does take time, patience, etc to get a virtually cable free rig though.
