Default Wire organizing

I'm having trouble organizing wires in my case, especially the ones that connect to my PSU. They are really unorganized and messy and I want better airflow in my case. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to take care of this problem?

I would recommend a nylon sleeving kit. Only downside is you will need a female molex remover.

My wires are already in green UV sleeves but are still all over the place. I like TheMajor's idea. I'll give that a try.

Zipties and/or sleeving, maybe hooks in ur case (?) i have no idea i was just throwing that out there. also, if u're gona tape, use electrical tape cuz it's real sticky but also doens't harm wires and can be applied to bare wires. hope i've helped

Thanks guys. I think i'll use electrical tape and get some round IDE wires. I wish I had some pics but I'm not much of a camera person.
