Clean! Are you forgoing the intake fans and just relying on the three connected the the CPU cooler?

The front fans are still there :) Was pretty much just a test rig for the cooler.... the gear will go into a custom case :)

Here's my newest build with completed wire management. Unfortunately with all of the part stock issues during the pandemic, I wasn't able to source a modular power supply so I won't be sharing any back panel photos yet (hint; it's a mess back there).

Luckily the NZXT H200 series cases clean up pretty nicely, and a tower cooler hides most motherboard wiring.

This is the windowed side of my Crystal Series 680X, cant think of anything else to do with the front usb, front panel audio or case switches wires. Still working on the hdd/psu chamber. Its a mess for right now given the amount of wires required for 6 rgb fan control, picked up a Commander Pro which will hopefully help.

About your only option would be to get a fully sleeved USB/Audio extension and drill a dedicated hole for them (behind the mobo possibly to curl them up).
That'd require disassembly though to safely drill, addtionally you might look up EVGA power link, your case is short so you'd might have to remove a front fan to use that though.
For the USB3 maybe a right angle connector ~ make sure it faces the correct direction: https://store.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-modflex-right-angle-internal-usb-3-0-extension-50cm/

Alternatively you might also be able to cover those a bit if your lower PCIE slots are x16 capable and you move the GPU down ~ or if you use your vertical slot mount (that you already have, you'd just need a riser cable).
You might still be able to use the power link in a vertical arrangement too, and route them under the front fans.

Would love the vertical gpu option, but the 2080ti is 3 slots and the vert mount can only accommodate 2 slot cards. Will have to look into that usb right angle adapter though that sounds like a great idea for that area. Thinking maybe I could at least heatshrink the case switch wiring together. A powerlink would most definitely require the removal of a front fan so not an option sadly, my case is kind of squat :facepalm:

Ahh didn't notice it was the big momma card from the picture angle.
Fair enough, now getting to nitpicking options but if you have a atx pin tool, you could split the ATX extension cable such that half the cables go through the upper cable grommet and half through the middle one to give it a more symmetrical look.

Ordered a white 3.0 right angle adapter, so Im going to give that a try. Might just unhook the front panel audio as I dont use that audio out at all and my wired headphones are USB anyway. Thank you for the constructive input Spartacus09!

My Z77 from the last page committed suicide. I'm back to my old X58 until I decide what I want new toy I want to buy next. I owe it to myself :)

Following up with some progress with some of the suggestions from Spartacus. There will be one more white QL120 going in the front, its just been slow going converting the front to white QL's given how sold out/ corona priced everything is. Went all white Cablemod extensions for the onboard/frontpanel hookups, love the USB3.0 right angle adapter, makes that area so much more visually appealing! Need to work on the top portion now, I do have some more white closed cable combs coming for the 24pin as well as some 16 pin combs for joining the 2 8pin pcie runs together. I also plan on using a psu pin tool to try and split the 24pin wire loom between two openings, wish me luck!

Built for a friend. Those new Corsair cables with the capacitor in the end are really annoying. First time in a while building in a mass production case. It is pretty refreshing coming from a Cerberus and Ncase to have barely anything to do after putting the cables in:

Bit of a bear with stock psu. All the cables either too long or a bit too short. Will replace with Pico-PSU or hdplex psu asap.

Well here y'all go... I need a fan extension cable or 2? and a longer SATA cable... but whatever.. this is why (mostly) I don't have a case with a window... New Ryzen 3600 build up and running in my old NZXT H630 (yes yes I know the case it too big.. in 2014 when I built my last computer (i7-4770k) it was the white / black case I liked the best...I'm keeping the case for now because 1. I have it / 2. I still sort of like it..but man is it heavy to move about / 3. I'm too cheap to buy a new case right now.)

Also I realize there are too many drive bays... I don't have any place to put the drive bays if i take them out of the case.. and I don't care enough to do it anyways... Enjoy the not really long enough SATA cable just barely making it to the SATA expansion card.. stupid Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite and it's 4 MF'ing SATA ports =\ ... sigh....

In theory this is the before pic, I need a fan extension cable to hook the 2nd top fan up and a longer SATA cable to try to improve the routing of the DVD drive (yes I use it ... I'm using it right now damn it .. listening to some sweet sweet Steve Miller Band with it.) cable.

last chance AVERT YOUR EYES... OR DON'T whatever...

Extensions are always good. Nice build, would it be possible to only use the bottom drive cage? I would do that and install another fan in the front. Also mount whatever that is at the bottom to the back of the motherboard tray if it will fit & Push those USB extensions behind the motherboard tray.


+1 for Steve Miller band :)

You have a lot of work to do.

Upper left i'd make that fan cable run with the cpu aux cable and tighten them up so they're not loose and it looks like one cable. Same thing with the top fans, take the slack out and run them behind the fans out of view.

ATX cable looks okay.

Run those satas with the ATX cable and keep them together.

Looks like you can get the PCI-E cable into the gpu shroud a bit which is what I would do.

The bottom is a clusterfuck, try to get cables running to similar locations bundled together. and run them behind the motherboard tray.

Tighten up your gpu cables, make it one big branch of cables.

My only comment is you may want to check your top fan connection, it appears one of them isn't plugged in/getting power as its not spinning in the picture.

cheers .. again.. this is why I have a windowless case.. so the supplies I ordered (fan extension .. didn't actually need but WHATEVER and longer SATA cable for that sweet AF dvd drive Have arrived.

this is literally as good as this is going to get.. because this case is heavy and I'm sick of it.. and there is no window.. I kinda wish I had tucked the pcie video card power cable away better.. but **** it..

Clean AF and I love Fractal Design cases. Nice work!

Just finished upgrading my build!
IMG_20200823_195733-02.jpeg


I have 6 HDDs and 4 NVME drives in this case. Finally have room for more!
100% air-cooled, 100% silent.
No RGB cause you can't see inside the case normally anyway.
