Man, and I thought my old one was bad

I found that my round IDE cable for my CD and Floppy drives would tuck away nicely in the empty "5.25 bays that I dont plan on using. I'm thinking of buying a modular power supply, so I can cut out power cables that are un-needed.

Socomplaya2:

I like how you guided the SATA cable through the empty RAM slots. Nice touch.

Also, kind of a bit off topic but what is your socom 2 handle.
I play S2 all day... I'll throw you on my friendslist...

Possibly the simplest tidiness trick is to avoid the flat IDE cables all together. I ordered 2 12" round IDE cables, tucked the excess into my unused drive bays and the airflow in the case is great! Runs all day at around 42C. I'm happy with that.

fold the flat IDE's a couple times over, use zip ties and blam you got round cables.

Luckily my MOBO came with an assortment of round IDE cables.
