Default Airflow in case

I got a load of wires near the right hand side of case. The wires from the PSU such as the big connection to mobo (forgot what its called now lol) and the little mini one above it is hidden and taken out the way and put underneath the DVD drives but all the wires with the 120mm fan is causing it to look quite unprofessional.

Any suggestions. I don't really mean buying wire sleeving (whcih i have) won't really make it look any better.

Here is a picture to what i mean:

Cant you put the wires down the side of the cd cage and floppy. Or you might be able to take the other side panel off. on mine i can and i have wires running down there so they are completely hidden and give good airflow.

I dont think id be able to do that as i dont have very much room. There is a hole to get on other side of case but to get in back to other side and connect it.

Stuff unused wire in drive bays, zip tie everything up, and run some wires behind the motherboard.
