Default Modular PSU Cable Layout

Who out there has the best layout. Take into consideration I am ocd and things do bother. One thing that really bothers me is the sata and molex connectors.

I like sata and molex to be able to run like this:


without any twists in the cabling

in my case the trays are spaced in such a way that I can feed them up from the bottom mounted PSU and they plug in with no twisting.

I can't say who have the best layout, I love the one from my Silverstone strider + 850W. But custom cable is the best way to go. Avoiding Thermaltake upside down SATA is also best way to go :)

Kudos to you sir! I can never be bothered to measure and cut heatshrink to fit when I do mine though.

But I agree, making your own cable is the only way for things to work. PSUs only have like 3 SATA's per cable and spaced oddly or upside down or something wrong.

Corsair was kind enough to ship me an extra SATA cable for free though so I didn't have to hack up the "original" cables
