    There's my problem, I have a CM case....

A little planning goes a long way, I've learnt.

    The video I watched recently of Jayz Two Cents (whose channel I love btw) shows how he manages cables. He separates them and although wastes a lot of cable ties to temporarily keep cables out of the way makes things a hell of a lot easier to group and looks classy af when he's done.

    I disconnected and started doing that this past Monday. My lighting cables were the worst and everything was basically squashed on the opposite side. To the point where the panel was bulging. It's still not perfect as I'd need a full day to sort it out. But at least I can close that panel comfortably.

    Edit...

    Here's the vid

    Ah, thanks bud, I'll look at that video. Yeah, Jay is cool. I really did a hatchet job with mine.

    Default Show off your PC build.

    My build before I got my Strix 1080Ti. Current build is the same but with the Strix. Got some rgb goodness going on in there when the sun goes down.

    On that same note, I want / need to get rid of mine at a later stage. There's about 8tb total across 3 hdd's. Can't afford ssd's or nvme's totalling that.

    Do internal 2.5" enclosures exist? Something like an ssd case. A surface Google search wasn't much help.

    Or am I stuck getting an external hdd?

Then I have some cable management issue because some of the openings was too small to fit the pins through.

    Also I'm pretty sure I have an SSD just hanging in mid air.
    You still have the CM storm enforcer?

    My cable management (more like what cable management) is a mess. Doesn't help that I have a micro atx in it. Cables everywhere.
