Hi all,

I'm starting a new build tommorow in a Corsair 650D. I'd like to try and make the build really neat, as minimalistic cables on show as possible. I've ordered the white pre-build braided cables to go for a nice black / white theme with the build.

Would love to get some hints / tips from some of the cabling guru's on here on how to do this, ie how should I manage the cables behind the board, what's the best way to keep them in place?

Also, I've seen pictures of ssd's mounted vertically to the rear of the case, is this a feature of some cases, or is there a certain way of doing it? Velcro maybe?

Any advice welcome :)

I'm no expert or guru but you can have a look at the back of my 650D to see if it gives you any ideas.

Cables ties and a velcro roll that you can cut into lengths is a must to get the cables tight against the case, just take your time and plan it.

Nice post, yeah that helps quite a bit - good to see where I can run the cables :)

Just starting the build now, kinda trying to visualize how I want to end up
