Default Holding wires throughout my case

I have a mountain mods u2 ufo, and i want to stick wires up top by the top of the case, so they are out of the way. What is a good adhesive to keep the wires up there? I do not want glue or anything. I'm hoping some sort of tape will hold them. Got any ideas?

You can get these plastic clips with doubled sided tape, they are nice looking and very efficient. Rona has them, they come in a pack with a variety of wire capacity, for a few bucks.

if it is out of the way, and cannot be seen, then a cheap solution would be to use black electrical table. It easy to apply, easy to remove and leaves no residue...Only downside is that it's ugly.

Removeable wall hangers can work great for hooking cords out of the way, are very secure, but can also be removed without much trouble. Beyond that, adhesive velcro wraps works great too. Both are pretty easy to get at a Rona or Home Depot store.

There are also several kinds of fasteners that you can use with a cable tie. They have a hole or loop (or a couple) that you can pass a cable tie through to support whatever you want. There are screw on ones and sticky backed ones. Attach it where you want, pass a cable tie through it, and fasten your wires. You can use removable cable ties or just snip and replace when you need to make a change.
