Just bought a new Antec One Hundred case and a HCG-520w PSU:



I eh..."recycled" the blue 120mm fan from my old case.





I'm still working on the cable management, and I'm relatively new at it to be honest. ^^;



There's that beefy HCG-520 PSU! 40a on the +12v rail, so...not the shabbiest I gotta say. :P





I apologise for the mediocre Mobile Phone camera pictures. >.>
Comments greatly apprieciated!

Looks good. But I see a lot of cables there. Also I see IDE cable . It's for your CD/DVD drive I guess. Why don't you use SATA ?

Thanks!

Yeah, the PSU is non-modular and has lots of extras I don't need (yet) which makes cable management quite difficult, let alone the fact that I haven't really ever done any cable management myself before. :$

And yup, the IDE is for the DVD drive. The reason I use IDE is because that drive is a very good Asus model that I bought a few months ago before I upgraded my motherboard. The old system had no SATA ports so I had no choice but to buy the IDE version of the drive. ^^; I plan to buy a blu-ray drive eventually and that'll be the upgrade to SATA for the optical drive. B-)

I'd go black and a single round cable with enough length to feed it back and around to totally hide it. Then with a re-visit of all the cables take them one at a time and see if you can get them into the back and around to the device keeping the cables neatly routed and tied in the back. It's just all about time, no mystery here just trial and error, over and over till a proper path is found and on to the next. This could take several case openings as you think about things and how you can improve the cable flow. That being said some here are artists and your case has great routing options unlike mine so use them and enjoy as these are the little fine points that make the system just pop when you show a friend!

Thanks a bunch, linnemeyer! I'll certainly give it a shot and hopefully it turns out the way I hope it does! :P

That IDE cable sure would make management much easier. xD

Just keep in mind there are all sorts of great little cable management tricks and accessories out there and all you have to do is ask or hunt around. I especially like the newer line of cables by NZXT....there off the hook cool looking but they do add up in cost but the transformation is nothing short of amazing.

When my case grows up I want it to be just like.......
