Once I finally clean my workbench (been working on it for a year or 2 now lol) I am going to be undertaking a sleeve job. I probably wont do the whole PSU, just what is visible as my HDD's are mounted in the back.

Very nice work! I love the Raven cases.

Best of luck with the sleeving work...it'll look great when it's done. :)

Almost finished my cable management on my new case. Just 2 more cables to go. The 2 most difficult ones LOL. The sata and power cable for my SSD. Whatever those are called.

Don't mind those loose cables in the front of the case. Those are the 2 left to do. :P

Would it be a bad idea to mount my SSD above that blue USB3.0 cable with some double sided tape? It sure would keep the build nice and clean.

Very clean! And you can mount that SSD wherever you can fit it. I'd be tempted to zap strap it rather than use double sided tape, but your call.

Zap Strap it is! I didn't even think about it. Off to memory express to get some long ones! :D

Never heard of a Zap strap (Brand name maybe?) before, although I have a feeling it is a Zip Tie, in which case that is a great way to mount an SSD
Nice and Clean cable's too. So many people just kind of toss the cables in the back and forget about em'...I have some work to do on mine, but that will come once I get my sleeve.

Hehe yeah, I knew what he meant. I never heard zap strap either but I think it sounds a lot cooler then the boring old non rhyming name we all know, zip tie.

I learned that name from an electrician buddy. He uses them to strap loose wires up so he doesn't get zapped, thus a zap strap. Sorry, old habit. Yes, it's a zip tie.
