If you really have bad wire management, the wires will be in the way of the airflow. Think of it this way. You'd run faster through a plain, instead of running through a jungle.
I didn't even use either. I drill a 3/8" Drill to ram holes in then bought a $10 nibbler and went to town. Sure it took longer and hirt more but when it's all you've got.....
DawnofDoom - looks good from what we can tell. Zipties are a man's best friend too, get those pics up!

Looks nice man. Did you do any cutting or just re-routing wires?

i removed the mobo and put all the wires so they go underneath the mobo not over the top, tied all stray wires behind the drive cage so they're hidden, unfortunately i cant reverse my HD so the SATA cables will always be there

SATA is very neat and tidy, rounded IDE cables are an option though
