Follow same basic procedure throughout. Right angles are better (my opinion anyway) than loops/bends/curves.
kmote, apokalipse, Luke, apsoul: Thanks for the advice, will give it a try, and repost pics when next stage is finished. Ordered and Ultra modular PSU and a XFX 750i MB (has better placement for cables) also found a pack of zip-ties...so let the fun begin.

wait, hold on. Your buying these parts for you have better cable management?


Anyway, if you really want a modular psu i would advise against an ultra psu, i have heard a lot of bad things about them. Something more like a Corsair HX series would serve you better for the money you are spending.

So what rating would you assign my current level of cable management? Also, I wish I could do something with these PCI power cables.

At your request. Please keep in mind that I am open to any suggestions, so long as it doesn't involve taking a long walk off of a short peer, or flying a kite on a freeway.





Edit @ Below... Thats an excellent suggestion, but I'm not sure what effect it would have on cooling the cpu. Oh well, I get my new tubing tomorrow, so we'll just have to see. Thanks for the suggestion.
