I think we all can agree that the fewer cables visible, the cleaner the case, which in turn means the score is higher. Yeah people are going to score harsher then others, but the criteria is agreed upon, the definition is set. We all know what good cable management looks like, because we can agree on it.

I guess if we're going to analyze what we constitute as good cable management I'll throw in my 2 cents-

I agree with what zmatt just posted, that's a good base for it. I also think your personal experience as well as how good and creative you are with managing cables has a lot to do with how you rate it. What a seasoned PC tech/builder/enthusiast would score a 6/10, a newbie to the scene (which we all once were) could give it a score of 9/10. I say that mainly because of how cynical we can look to someone who doesn't care or who is new to it.

^you lack one crucial thing mate.....wire Management.

4/10....just add zip ties to those wires (you don't even have to hide the wires, and i would move it to a 6.5/10)

You actually scored me lower then I got first time around on page 5 with no wire management. There is wire management although I am lacking 3-4 zip ties as I don't have any atm and I am still going to move a couple of components around (and its not actually holding a sustainable boot yet). I have routed cables under the mobo as there is no mobo tray and bunched wires into any nooks possible. At the bottom of page 4 is what it originally looked like a couple of years ago.

^i would still give it a 4 mate...like i said, just bunching them together would score you two more points, hiding them would be another 2. It's just my opinion, other people might think it is better then i do...

Overly harsh I think. Two HDDs, ODD, soundcard and full size graphics card in a small case and it doesn't look too bad at all. 7.2

Even still, it's not well organized around the power supply.

And what is this ribbon cable blasphemy?
