Holy F****'** Toledo!
OK, if you're waiting on a new case, that's OK!
Go to Crappy Tire and buy a crap load of zip ties

While you're waiting for the new case, study up on cable management!
May the force be with you!

Edit: Just saw the Op's actual setup. What the hell is wrong with that?
That's poetry! True beauty!

Don't do what that other guy did!

it's usually neater-this is what it looked like before I tore it apart to temporarily throw in the i7 upgrade- I've been planning to do a full rebuild but my case was lost by UPS so I've been in limbo. Still nothing stellar, but I'm not obsessed by cable management. I do agree though that Eagle's case looks great. (anyone else besides eagle having trouble with HWC image upload?)

@Eagle1337: Your cable management looks pretty good, actually. Maybe some sleeving on the exposed wires/Sata cables? And consider painting the inside of the case flat black. That hides a lot of those black cables. Or at least makes them not as obvious.

yeah I've thought of painting it a nice dark black, I've never sleeved anything or know where to buy some.

Sleeving is just being patient and taking time.

Murdermods has great sleeving for sale.
