Desktop PC Wiring Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I wasn't sure what other category to create this in. I feel like I'm never good at internal cable management when I do a build. I have most of my wires bundled accordingly using zip-ties, and I always see amazing looking and super clean computer builds, but then I try to do wiring in my case and there are at least a view wires that are a challenge. I know about cable combs and getting a modular PSU, which I have, with custom braided cabling which I have, so, here I will outline the equipment I'm using and hope that someone can provide me some tips. 
Case: 
Thermaltake W200
Motherboard: 
MSI MEG Z390 Godlike
CPU: 
Intel i9-9900 KS
CPU Cooler: 
Corsair Hydro H150i
GPU:
Asus Strix 1080Ti
PSU: 
Corsair Ax1200i
Cabling: 
Custom RED braided PSU cabling
Case Fans: 
x3 Tt 120mm fans attached to theH150i radiator(top-mounted) (that the cooler came with). 
x1 Noctua 140mm 3000RPM exhaust fan (rear-center of case). 
Case Fan Controller: 
Tt Commander F6 RGB x6 Channel
RAM: 
Patriot Viper DDR4 32GB @ 3200 MHz
System Drive: 
Samsung 970 Pro M.2 256GB

Internal Cabling: 
Motherboard Power Cable
GPU Power Cable
CPU Power Cable
SATA SSD Power Cable
Case Fan Cabling
Cabling from the H150i Waterblock
All of the cabling leading from the fan controller

My computer is currently in the shop right now, but as soon as I get it back I will provide detailed imagery of what I am working with.

#1 tip/trick I can give for a clean build is get all those wires hidden in the case behind the motherboard mount/bracket.... You should be able to get pretty much all the wires hidden except for the small turn out of the back to the mobo connectors.

 

The USB3 front panel connector and the GPU power cables are the hardest to deal with and make look good... The rest should be fairly easy
