Well all in all the pantyhose idea worked out great with some masking tape of course, cable management is still non existent the case is just too small I think I'm going to have to upgrade to HAF 932, worked with that case before its massive prefect for cable management. Also gonna see if I can buy some of that Velcro. I would take a picture but my phone doesn't like connecting to the PC and I'm still looking for my camera to take the picture. I also think it sounds a bit quieter because I can't hear the fan on my gtx 260. And I want to thank all of you for all your help.

What I would suggest you do is go here - https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ig-2-a-68.html and look at some of the rigs and their wiring jobs to get some ideas

Here's mine BTW....

Also wanted to say you case has a lot to do with how your cable management goes. So if you have a case that's designed for cable management (Ex: HAF X) you'll get great results, if not, you can still do a good job with a bit of imagination and a few zip ties

One way to get your arms around the cable mess is to use a modular PSU like these guys. The 550W looks quite nice and does not cost too much - if 550W is enough for your box. Else, there are other choices.

WOW that took a while. I think I will either get the HAF 932 or the HAF X. The thing is that my case is a really compact mid tower case. I have the room so I think i'll upgrade the case recycle the old one like a new cheepy build and just work from there. Also I have the COOLER MASTER Silent Pro 600W and its modular and I'm very happy with it because I only use about 50% of the cables the rest are somewhere in the back of my closet. And if my rig ever looks good enough to show off I'll post it there as soon as I find the camera. But once again thanks.

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...
