You should see what you cant, a shit ton of spare cable is stuffed up in the odd bays along with Satas/molex and fan wires. but almost all the sata/molex/powerfans/ect I/O run down that back little corner on way to go from chamber to chamber, PITA.
Like I said I would need proper length sata cables since the ones I have are a little short and don't allow for proper cable management(gotta work with what I have) also getting right angle sata cables wouldn't work either because the cable would be pointing up instead of down on this board(really stupid design by MSI).

I honestly think the Stacker 830 is the best case ever for cable management. My favourite case ever actually.

Got some sleeved cable extensions.
Man, it's starting to get tough hiding all these cables in my small case.
Still need to find a place to hide a SSD. Do they make 5.25" brackets?

You could get some 5.25" to 3.5" brackets then some 3.5" to 2.5" brackets onto those. Or just buy some sticky Velcro tape and put it wherever you want.

You mean with tape? See below. Plus, I wouldn't want to have SATA and power cables over there.

Does this last? I'm worried about the longevity of such a solution (heat?).

Scythe Bay Rafter 2.5 to 5.25" adapter. Got one in my TJ-07. Not sure you can find them anymore, but NCIX used to stock them.

Here's a bunch of different ones: 2.5" HDD Adapters | Page 1 | Sort By: Product Title A-Z - FrozenCPU.com *
