my 4 pin connecter wont run from the back cos its too short...i wish i cud, it wouldve been so much better.
And i might remove the plastic clips i dont need. Its good to have them if you dont wanna route em from the back,and just have them guided through the front.

all you'd have to do is cut a little hole so the 4-pin can go out the top and it would be fine. but it doesn't seem like a big deal. not bad tho, 7/10

Default My Wire Management!... Lots of Pics! :D

okay, this is just for kicks mainly... and because i realized that ive never posted any pics of my build from last summer in the forums, so... here some are:

my desk, where you can see my entire setup (ignore all the other random stuff on it lol):


my tower under my desk, all lit up:


now i took this thing apart in an attempt to make the wire management at least slightly better... and took pics along the way. so, here those are:

looks so organized and tranquil when its near empty, doesnt it? lol


i tried running all the case hookup cables and such out a little hole in the motherboard tray and down the back of it, to cut down on the visible clutter from the front:


from the back:


and finally, two views of the whole thing, along with the PSU and the horrible clutter it brings:



yup... so i know the wire management is pretty much atrocious, but... i really dont care all too much... im planning a new build at the end of the month where hopefully ill be incorporating a modular Ultra X3 (either 600W or 1000W, not sure yet) PSU into a new NZXT Tempest (when i can find one) and during summer, a liquid cooling system... so, as my comp is an ongoing project, as long as it isnt ruining my airflow or anything, i dont care tootoo much about the wires... so be nice when 'rating' it, and enjoy the pics... haha - RK

This is the Wire management thread, not the Wire mismanagement thread. :P

Can you get away with not using the 24pin extender thingy. And rip out that darned useless speaker int he bottom.

be nice! XD

and i dont really think i can in this case, no... it has a splitter of sorts in it that powers the LCD in the front of the case and give it info like the HDD activity and such, i think...
and the speaker in the bottom? would a gaping hole be better instead? haha

i honestly dont wanna put too much work in on this case/build anymore, cuz im gonna replace like %90 of the parts next week! i only posted for kicks, and cuz come next week, i wont be able to haha - RK

EDIT: i posted this, then got in the shower and was done with 'lather' and 'rinse' and was working on 'repeat' when i realized... duh... theres no way that the HDD activity info is coming out of a 4-pin molex connector... so, other than to power the LCD on the front of the case, and because the case came with it and instructed me to use it... i have no idea what that extender-thingy is for! haha
mebbe if i get bored later, ill try taking it out and just plugging the LCD into a regular molex connector from my PSU and see what happens... thanks for pointing that out tho... lol
