i tuck away my cables as much as possible. this includes neatly putting 90° folds in the ide cables and having them run under the mobo. power cables i try to keep tied up all together and/or find ways to route them behind the drives out of view, mostly.
Hmm never thought of trying to hide them behind the mobo, have to give that a try. What type of tape would be good, or does it matter? Yes, it does somewhat stop the airflow. That's another reason i need to clean inside up a bit.
I just use rounded cables when I can... some cases actually have little gaps for you to run wires along.. thats what I tend to use... it keeps the wires out of sight... especially the power connectors...
and the rest I just tie together or find other creative ways of hiding
by brand new HSF is my current pride and joy... it just looks SOOO kewl
have to have it clearly displayed... the only loose item I currently have in the case is the fan speed controller
i have ibm case, cables everywhere, its under the desk,... i dont really care what it looks like.. i think my friend said it needed color or something like that one day, so i taped some construction paper on the side of it in the shape of a Athlon XP logo... he laughed, i laughed, then i went to sleep.
I used zip ties to get as much as possible nice and neat. The hardest part for me was the power cables as the wires were not uniform comming out of the PSU so it makes it hard to get it neat and clean. I plan on getting some wire loom to clean it up some more.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
