Windows 7: Cable management the binder clip way.

Cable management the binder clip way.

Thought this was a cool idea and it does seem to actually work I did a little something similar to my own desk using a different type of clip but same principle. It's worked really well.


If you're using a laptop, they make great cable catchers, but when it comes to managing a large mess of cables we've always opted for solutions like the IKEA Signum line. However, this solution offers one thing those don't: instead of bundling up your cables in one tray, you can group them together and route each group wherever you want (which is the same thing I love about the previously mentioned Cablox pad).

The picture does look a lot nicer. I tend to use 2 sided velcro rules for my cable management. Easy to undo and redo.

Actually I once did support in a office building that had a room that looked suspiciously like that one.
I did not set up the initial. I was brought in later, and never could bring myself to try and clean it up because the guy that originally did it was either a absolute mad scientist type genius, or a certifiable wacko.

I've built around 10 computers so I'm by no means an expert. In my prior builds, I didn't really care about how it looked inside because (1) I don't over-clock so I didn't care too much about air-flow; (2) I don't like the plastic window in cases so I don't get them, therefore, nobody sees what my...
