Glue a power strip to the bottom of the desk. That way you don't need to have as many cables running to the outlet. Edit also you are using the cable management as a tray instead of a wire management system.


My System Specs: (Short list) i7 4770k, GTX 780, many SSD's, a 2 TB HDD(deceased :( ), Corsair 650D. Full list: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/kchriz6097/saved/8dh7YJ


Upgrade Plan: Acquire some Black Noctuas then add 16 or 32GB of 2133MHz memory

Yeah just wireless everything.

Red pill or Blue pill?

Would there be any use to using like weeping tile or maybe even a pool noodle split open on one side to put the cables into? The shelves I have from Ikea don't hold the amount of cabling I have well enough...

I don't manage the cables on my desk, and for my system, my case doesn't have an area behind the motherboard tray, I only run an much of any given cable as I have to, and shove the rest in my top 5.25" bay, the other three are full, so I don't have to see very much of them. For those who care, I have my disk drive, a hard drive caddy, and a 5.25" floppy drive, so the top one is the only empty one, so it works out well.

What I would do, if you going really cheap just find something in the house to cover the wires with, something that would look kinda clean. :D
