Alright, cable question.
Got the new hotness (literally) with a 3080 that requires triple 8 pin GPU power inputs.
I have a modular PSU (Superflower 850w), and I know that each 8-pin is supposed to go into a seperate PSU connector on the PSU side. I have 3 VGA cables, so everything is good there.

However, each one of my 3 GPU cables has dual 6+2 VGA connectors. Which means that I now have 3 unused, dangling 6+2 connectors. I cleaned things up pretty substantially from this picture by snaking em through the hard drive cage, but I don't like that as a long term solution. What's the best way to hide all those connectors? Any recommendations that aren't the $70 Lian-Li RGB triple 8 pin connector?
They don't make single sleeved Superflower modular cables AFAIK.

I should note that because I have a ton of hard drives (8) and fans (also 8) the cable routing behind my motherboard is getting pretty stuffed, even with this monstrous case.

You could get some 8 pin extensions. You'll just be adding length to your existing cables, but you would clean up the front side. Phanteks 8 to 8(6+2) extensions.

Also found These on ModDIY.

Cable management in the back is still a bit of a nightmare. Between the 9 RGB fans, RGB strip, capellix AIO and multiple hubs needing their own sata connection, theres something like 26 extra wires in the back.

Oddly my favorite part of the cable management is probably the GPU power connection. Cablemod finally released a single 12 pin connector that ends in 3 pci cables on the PSU side. Looks so much better than the monstrosity of an adapter the card came with. So ugly.

The AL120 fans interlock together and each group (here of one, three, or four) has two cables. So probably not what you're thinking of.
Yes there is way less cable clutter than trying to use the Corsair fans I had previously.

There's a reason I don't show off the backside of my case. 😅

8 hard Drives and 9 fans complicate cable management a bit. Also the new addition of a GPU that requires triple 8 pin connectors.

I do have a couple nice cable things coming my way soon though, so I hope I can clean this up.

Although I also want to fit another fan or two, I think I can use slim fans to make a push/pull on that giant radiator up front. Mainly to try and get a tiny but more airflow over the hard drives.
Their temps understandably went up with all the intakes being attached to a gigantic radiator.

However, through the window, things look good.

I do have some plans to clean things up a bit better, but I need another part or two to arrive for that.
