While sdk's Lian-Li does look quite nice....I'm still going to have to agree with most everyone here when I say that Earm has the nicest case so far in this thread.

I really wish I could get my new PSU and sleeving right now.....there's so much I want to fix up with this wiring. :(

What should I do about that window fan wire? Kinda in the way..


Run it up and around the top of the side panel if you can. Use velcro or something so you can pull the wires out easily when you need to take the side panel off.

I'd say you should run it straight to the back of the panel and rig it up back there if you can.....basically you want to take the shortest possible path to the edge of the window. I realise that the fan header up there is taken up by the OTES fan.....but it's still easier to "deal with" wiring if you can first get it out of view.

most of the wires are hidden up top behind CD drives and the alu from the case. :eek:

I feel for ya bud....I know how irritating some of the wiring can be in our Lian-Li's with no DIRECT way to get cables behind the mobo tray.....without a little cutting. There's still some more hiding/routing I can see straight away that you'd be able to do without any mods to the case though....unless you've fixed it up a bit since those shots.

Ouch dude, I actually think it's gotten worse since you showed me the first time. :(
Reason = That True Power 430 had longer cables.
Mistake 1) Getting that Gigabyte Motherboard
Mistake 2) Getting that case
Mistake 3) Getting that with a sh1tty PSU

How can that many cables be hidden behind the panel, yet it still be that much of a birds nest? You seriously have some work to do, no offense, we all do, but I just cant figure out whats going on in there.

Anybody have pointers for me. My issue is that my motherboard tray extends completely horizontally.

Dude, I've gone through it with you before....I know how the X-piders are built.....and there's still ways to get wires down there. I've done it with worse case designs.....you just gotta be creative.

Behind drive cages and above the psu are big ones if you really can't for some reason get anything behind your mobo plate even a bit. For you we're trying to do this for airflow and functionality....not looks.....so anything will do at this point.

Some cases/powersupply combinations will leave just enough space above the PSU to tuck away a molex connector.....giving you extra space to stuff extra/routed cables.

Thanks for the respons to my case, I took the ccfl's out because the frigging wiring was WAY WAY to short, and it was impossible to put it, so when I get some time I am gonna solder them and make them longer, expcailly since i was trying to hide the wires under the hdd cage.

Since then I got a new 250G Maxtor drive and I got my IDE cables in a really nice way, it really like it, I also am getting some new ocz alu ram sinks, I will post some new pics when it comes.

and I changed the unreal fan grill with a blade.


Earm: your case is very nice, that was my #1 case choice if they were not discontinued. Also your sleeved everything, and tahts hawt.

Nice case.

the screw is stripped you need to pull or pry out on the screw as in you turn it as you get somthing under the head of the screw and pry it out or you can get a pair of pliers and as you unscrew it pull out this should work
