Default Cable Management on my main Rig. Critiques and suggestions are welcome.

Today I made the decision to upgrade my Graphics Card, I made the step from a GTX 970 to a GTX 1080Ti and, since I was adding another PSU cable, I re-managed the still messy cables inside the case.

The case is a NZXT Noctis 450 ROG Edition, I like the way it looks, but cables are sometimes a nightmare for me because... well, i'll placed controllers and hubs, useless cables and short fan cables.

Bear with my n00b cable management, since this post is precisely for asking suggestions and critiques to it, and try to learn more and more about it, until I could make a decent cabling inside my computer... and sorry for the horrible images.

Front I/O

The Chaos Realm - Motherboard, PCI-E, SATA, Fan cables and Fan Controller Hub


SSD, CPU and Misc cables, with the RGB HUB


I'll post the front on a comment bellow. Feel free to give advice, please.

i would move your ssd over to the right so you can better hide the purple cable. youve got the right idea with your vga cables you just need to match them up one way or the other. try to straighten out your 24pin so it doesnt look like its being pushed down on one side. a trick ive used in the past for hiding cables that are visible thru holes is to use a piece of black cardstock/plastic/cardboard etc to cover the holes from the psu side so it looks stock.
the back of your case looks pretty standard for trying to hide multiple cables. i wouldnt worry about it other than trying to cover up the holes in the case that show random cables.

Thanks for the recommendation!

For the SATA I left that there because I'm planning to add another SATA in there, but for the meantime, I'll try to hide it.

The VGA, is a visit to CableMod, again. And that could help to buy a new backplate for the Graphics Card and SSD.

The 24 pin, that could be a challenge, let me see if I got enough slack in the cable. I put it there because was the best place to put the cable, the top most cable hole is too high to let it slide there. I would see what I could do.

Yup, I got homework to do, and now more since I would receive a Corsair H150i.

Thank you very much and regards!!
