You need to get some cable management in there buddy. My main PC is in an Antec solo - very nice but slightly awkward.

Don't double post. Edit your previous.

As for some pointers. One of the most common and easy things to do for cable management, is mounting the hard drive backwards....in a way, so that the end part with the pins and connections are facing the front of the case. That way you can re-route the IDE cable and power cable for the HDD, behind the HDD bay.

Just a heads up - I would not post in the first thread that Xandu put up there, I don't think the mods are fans of bringing up threads that old. For cable management there are a lot of tricks but the big one is getting the cables behind the motherboard tray. This was my effort: I give you permission to eat your own eyes

The first link would be fine to post in. It is listed int he Hardware sticky, so it is legal to post in as it is considered a sticky by association.

Not a bad looking case buddy. Get you some zip ties for those cables and it will clean things up a bit.
