Re: Defeating a PSU tentacle monster
I'd never advise doing that. As well as pretty much ruining your chances of ever selling the PSU, it's also dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.
Bundle the spare cables up as tight as you can, ziptie it together, and put it behind the motherboard tray or on top of the optical drive.
