Save yourself some cash, and mod your case, you will be surprised how neat it will look. Just cut holes on the mobo tray and route the wires from behind. You just have to take the time and make it looker neater.

Just run the unused cables under the hdd caddies and use the hdd caddy to hold it down.

See you saved yourself $$$.. and did a good job on cleaning it. Gr8 work. Do you know a little bit of wire loom or split flex tubing (two most common names) and spiral wrap could also look a little more cleaner, and its cheap and can be bought from hardware stores, home depot etc..
