sinbin,
Nice rig and I like the case a lot. Get yourself a round IDE cable and lose the flat ribbon for better airflow and cleaner look.

The whole approach to cable mgnt. is based on the access locations to space behind the mobo. Not knowing your case I would need you to take several shots of overview and semi close up of the back of the mobo and the front of the case and the hard drives. My experiences is you never or rarely get it completely right the first time and the whole thing becomes a work in progress. Check out the new NZXT line of cables, see below just some. When I get a phat check and have money to blow then these are going to go into my rigs. Oh I like cable ties as well but there are some cable wraps and other means that also look to be exceptional at organization. Hit me back and I'll send you the link.

thanks for links,,those ide round cables look very tidy !I have 100 cable ties from tiny to large all diff colours too.

Do you know if you can get cable extenders as the 4 pin mobo power lead just reaches the mobo from the psu at the bottom!!I mean its bout 1 mm just enough!
It presses on my gpu and i like to go up the middle with it ?

With cable management, the key is to have a mobo that you can stuff cables behind. Either on the backside of the motherboard tray, or between the motherboad and the tray.

For example, with your rear case fan, don't run those red/yellow cables down and right across the middle of your case. Instead run it along the back edge and then flat across your power supply. Tape it down where it's less obvious and it will clean up the mess.

Bundle as many of the wires as you can, perhaps even use some vinyl tape and tape them together every few inches to keep them clean and neat. I often use velcro tie wraps. It's a long spool of velcro that I can cut to length and it just goes around the cable and sticks to itself.

It usually takes me just as long to wire my case as it does to assemble it, in fact it probably takes longer.

Sinbin,
This will work I used this myself but the NZXT versions are available and wicked if you choose to go with that look. NZXT even offers all these cable in white, red, black and blue to the best of my knowledge.
