Dude, the only way I know of is to sleeve them, color them or do a "ghetto" sleeving job, wrap them in electrical tape. Either that or fashion some type of cover that would block that section from view.

Nice work Brian, Ryan, noober, and Jack.

Jack, your images are very tiny, can you upload some full sized ones so we can see detail better?

Dude, I stand corrected. These will go most of them.

Dude, just to add my 2 cents, I did sleeving on my rig, I did all the sleeving on my fan controller cables and fans to a white with black tips, it took hours to get it perfect, but it was worth it, for the rest I ended up buying sleeved cables, my psu had an option to buy the modular cable set sleeved in different colors, and now all match, my sleeving I used was also the nzxt, but it takes along time, and you need to carefully remove the ping for the gfx cables, the sleeving is very tight.

Ganjy, mate that looks epic! That is one awesome and futuristic controller!

Layback bear, very nice rig, I wanted to add some constructive criticism, but recently in a post wre I tried to help someone, they did not like it. lol, so I wont, but it looks great, liking the blue allot.

Thanks, looking into it can be a lot of work. Think I will apply electrical tape to the ends and tuck them again for now.

Plan A: Sleeved extensions like Steve suggested.

Plan B: Take a black Sharpie felt marker to the wires.

Plan C: Sleeve them yourself. Only the parts that show have to be sleeved.

Plan D (the sucky one): Do nothing.

Whichever plan you choose, dressing the cables to run next to each other in a neat bundle will dramatically improve the appearance. Secure the bundle by tying it together somehow; zip ties are too bulky but you might be able to tie them together with a matching sewing thread. Another option would be to sleeve the bundle. Also, routing the bundle as much as possible so it has lines parallel to the edges of the MOBO will improve the appearance.

That long front panel audio cable can be hidden by routing it under the MOBO.
