    There are other competitors to them now to so i'd hunt around before deciding but i'v had no issues. just don't put the hook side of velcro on them or it will tear up the sleeving.

    Hi,
    I can sort of tell you have a corsair psu with the flat wiring
    Good for straight runs but irritating for turns

    Oops nope seasonic must have the same wiring deal as corsair though.
    Pretty much all modern PSU's have the flat ribbon cables now, been that way for about two years... They're much easier to work with and bends aren't really an issue at all. The cables I hate are SATA with the big clunky connectors. I think your EVGA PSU's are the older braided cables?

    I try my hardest to make things tidy but right at the end whatever's left hanging out get's stuffed in. I really think I'm at the max capacity for this case now. If if you take your time and do things in an orderly fashion it should all come together. One time I think I tried a SATA cable in about ten different ways, must have spent an hour with that one cable.

    Hi,
    Sometimes the corsair mount/ hoses coming out the side and is too close to ram stick so people rotate the mount to get around that issue.
    That`s exactly what the hoses on my H110i GT did, but I just turned the radiator around so the hoses went to the left and not the right.

    Great job on the wiring Sygnus

    The soft cable mod cables do make things look easier.

    @essenbe, asked me once to provide my thoughts on cable management, so....

    Cable tidying takes a bit of pre-planning and patience. It's also a willingness to improvise (example installing your own "cable ties" as seen in the first image). With that understanding your case helps as you figure out where you can and can't move or hide cables. Sometimes extensions helps (ex: fan extension cables) so that you don't have them stretched across the MB or case.

    The biggest key is willing to spend time on the project, and re-work if necessary. Honestly at times I've spent more time on cable tidying than putting the PC together. Doing that will get you better cable management than you thought possible.

    Pet peeve: I never want any wires running across the CPU opening in the back of the case. Stranger things have happened and if by some weird circumstances a wire gets pinched there... boom your system just shorted out. Call it paranoia and safety.

    It's not a personal build but it's built by me for my new work desktop. Just waiting on the RX 5700 to come in for it.

    Spec's:
    Ryzen 5 3600
    Noctua NH-L9a Cooler
    Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro Wifi
    32GB DDR4 3200
    1TB 970 Evo Plus
    Fractal Design Node 202
    450W Silverstone SFX PSU

    It's a sweet little system. It's replacing an Optiplex 5050 with an i7 7700.
