Are you talking about the cpu connector on the motherboard (either 4 pin or 8 pin)?

That was my only real disapointment with cable management... I found I couldn't route it behind the motherboard tray and ended up running it up top tucked in behind the rad.

sswilson is correct,the only way to run that 4/8 pin connector is behind the rad without modding the tray

Looking great. I noticed that you still have the white mobo standoff screw marking paper behind your mobo. I don't know if this is intentional, but imo if should be taken out. Here's an image of my cosmos that has been slightly modded and WC'd. Head over to OCF for the scoop.

Very nice
Cable management isnt that easy-especially if you keep changing your stuff
