Do both that way you just need short sections to black out or cover the exposed wires in the case.

The back of the case won't look real good, but the inside will look clean and will help airflow.
But, I agree that using both will be better and help organize the cables.

well I had to scratch both plans i ran the cable along the side this case i got is kinda asssbackwards extra s to avoid terms of service

The cabling should be on the bottom i would figure or give you enough cable to do some modifacation so i am running it up the side im going to search for some black covering and just cover it up going up the side

Atleast i still got a clear view of the MB

also when you purchase a ssd do they also come with a caddy to install in a bigger space here are a couple shots again

I think im ready to pick up two optical dvd drives RW and the ssd for the OS im wondering can I purchase a key only would it be cheaper or am i better off just getting a personal copy for the new machine?


nevermind the caddy i came up with something

No the 3.5" to 2.5" drive adapter is separate but with a couple of velcro dots you could just stick it in the case floor. If you can pull the back side off and shoot a picture of two so we can see what's going on. I just have to believe there are some solutions with a couple of cable extensions and other creative solutions to tidy this up a bit.

Believe me my case has a ton of stuff going on so buy no means is this the perfect example of cable management but it's hopefully something to go by if your case has any pass through options at all.

Some SSDs come with a caddy and some don't. But, like Alan said, you really don't need one. I have an old DELL and they are so propiatary that nothing would work...except duct tape. It runs fine.

Alright guys, I think im going to finish my build in a few days

I have another question about the Os I know i heard this before that i might have to purchase another key

I already have home premium do i have to really get another key or am I allowed to install on 3 Pc's or is it just one ?

I really don't want to get another OS i would like to contiunue to use the one i have if the code permits and keep the current one i am on running too

I do have a copy of Vista home premium but im not trying to go backwards if you know what i mean

Im going to purchase my SSD and DVD/RW if i can avoid buying windows i will just pick up the other 8 gigs of ram i need to make 16 gigs

You are allowed 1 installation of the OS per key. The cheapest option for getting multiple installs is usually to purchase either the Windows 7 Home Premium family pack (3 keys), or get a Technet Subscription ($199) for a year. The advantage to having Technet is that you also get Microsoft Office...as well as keys for XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, SQL Server, Exchange Server, etc. But Technet costs more, and it's designed for computer technicians and such for testing and evaluating of software.

Why 16GB's of RAM, do you run numerous virtual machines all at the same time? If not, honestly the extra RAM from 8 to 16 is probably just going to be wasted.
