I've been building a few systems recently, and have run into an organization problem. Every motherboard, graphics card and case comes with spare cables, screws and connectors, but where can I put them? I have spare fans, graphics card coolers, manuals and other plumbing parts.

Have any [H] members found efficient ways to store these off build parts?

lol, I have an old case brimming over with cards, cpus, ram, you name it. If I cram any more in there I'm going to start bending pins.

Cables, screws, etc. generally go into a power supply box in separate zip lock bags and cables tied up (so the don't get all tangled). More sensitive components (video cards etc.) generally end up in the box they originally came in, always in an antistatic bag if I don't have the original box.
