My System Specs

Default U2-UFO BUILD

Well got my cube the other day (used so cleaned it all up) ordered allot of toys for it this weekend from Daze and MM.
Been thinking allot about the wiring and general tubing runs, mostly wiring is on my mind or I should say cable management. Not after a Lowfat type of build but do want to keep it organized. Was thinking something along the lines of the aliens nesting area in the movie.
So basically my rig will be going in there from my level10 gt. Also have a NZXT fan controller that is going to create allot of the wiring nightmare in this case.
On the other hand could loss it and get a couple bitspower wire stations and use the on fan controllers to handle the lower fan speed I wanna run.

For now have ordered 7 gelid wing green fans and uv green tubing from daze, plus some fingerguards.
Mountain Mods have ordered a new pullout motherboard tray in mirrored black to handle my e-atx sniper3 board, was nervous the matx/atx one in the case now would not work when the time come to transfer it all all over. Plus ordered 4 spider fan grills for the front of case.

Noticed in previous builds Lowfat was using the back of the motherboard tray for mounting his wiring. Now I was wondering if maybe drilling a few holes in the motherboard tray then using say a few kelly screws used to hold steel studs together for framers and a few flat pieces of plastic to create wire runs would work. Also would use this same method on the bottom of the case to keep things organized. Or maybe some suggestions from anyone?

Case has smoked left and right acrylic sides and a big window top so everything will be more visible from above idea.

For now am only going to be adding in my system in my rig and later will add a new triple xspc rad too the front (cant afford it right now so it will come a week or 2 later than the build).

So basically am after some idea too not make this a rats nest of wiring, cable management to me so far has been to jam the right side cover on and try like hell to get the 2 thumbscrews in.

Power supply will be going in the back bottom right side of this case behind the motherboard idea and this is an 18" cube 4 fans on front(triple rad added in later), 240 rad above power supply in the back right side. One more exhaust fan on rear motherboard tray. To give u an idea of layout am using.

This case calls for some wire management so am open to any idea's or experience's with this type of a build you guys may have.

Thx for taking the time to read this long post and any help I get.
