Cable managment
1 Attachment(s)

So this is bugging me for a while now. Have this nice big case but i can't seem to get the cables the way i want them.

The case is a CoolerMaster Cosmos S.
A Pic of the current cable management is included.

What should i do? I want it so that hardly any cables are being seen, should i cut custom holes?

Thanks Scott

^^^ Wow, you have so many holes for routing those wires... not sure why you didn't use them?

For the 4-pin atx power cable, i'd suggest buying an extension. Then, sleeve the extension. Then, make use of those routing holes.

Exactly, make use of those holes and it'll look much better. You might even be able to get the 8pin (or 4, I don't know which you have) CPU connector to fit that way as well.

You can dig in the Workblog or gallery and see how other member here use their cable managing hole. Here you can get some pretty good idea about how to do with your;)

I know there is a lot of holes to run cables... the problem with that is that there is not much space be hide the motherboard tray and it is extremely hard to close the back cover with lots of cables there...

i will give it a try tho..

if anybody has some pics of good cable management with this case can u please post them.

All the HWC case review have some routing cable comment at the end. Look at them in different case;) There is one and all the other are listed in the similar.

Cut some custom holes is what I would say. Or, if you cant hide them, sleeve them. Once they are sleeved, you will want them to be viewable (if your sleeving turns out good!)

when you say i could sleeve them, what do u mean by that. Buy some tubing off of ncix or am i in the complete wrong direction?

i know i am a n00b. LOL

Your side panel may bend behind the back a little bit, but the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks.

At least you have cable management holes, my Antec 300 doesn't so it is a pain in the but. Couldn't you zip tie the extra cables on to the side of the 5.25 cage?
