    Default Quick question..

    All I have right now is twistie ties that are those little metal wires completely sleeved in plastic... is it ok to use those to manage PSU cables, or am I going to short anything?

    My dad told me that if the metal twistie tie touches the mobo I can say "goodbye mobo", but the wires in question are about six inches from the mobo, so no worries there. I'm just worried about PSU cables.

    Thanks in advance,
    Paul
