Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! My name is Rey, I made some cable management on my computer which turned 2 months old a couple of days ago! The specs are I3-6100, 8GB Ram, 1TB HDD and a Gigabyte GTX 1060 3GB

What do you guys think of the cable management?

I guess it's OK. It could be better, but for a 14 year old, I doubt you'll be showing off the insides of your rig anyways.

I'm guessing the case is the corsair spec alpha correct? That case isn't too good for cable management but overall for your first build not too bad dude. Next time I would recommend connecting the cpu 4 pin cable before installing the motherboard.

Not bad for a first build. Back in my days there was no such thing as wire management. :D

The cpu fan wire can be tucked around the outside of the cooler. Don't want the fan blade to hit it.

Dude, I'm 13, having assembled 15 systems, and I'm seriously not afraid of using cable ties, clamps, sleeves & cable combs for even the lowest end of systems I've worked with.


I once did the unthinkable, back many headphones ago...

I split an audio split, again

Well aren't you a bad ass?

 

You did a decent job OP, but I would suggest routing the cables along the sides of the case more if possible.

Ayy fellow 14 year old :P 

 

Pretty good for a first build. A lot better than my first build, try routing the CPU power connector behind the motherboard tray if there's enough space.

 

Here's what my build in the spec alpha (which is what I'm assuming that case is by the looks) looked like, try to mimic that: (Ignore the PSU cover, that was custom)

Try to copy it, route everything you can behind the board tray and tie them down.


Good luck :P
