define S cable management help

katiekitsune

so i have three drives in my fractal design define s: 1 full size desktop SSHD and two SSDs in the ssd trays. ive found its a pain to route the daisy chain sata power cables between the drives  and have the side panel close. should i switch the ssds to the hard drive trays to fix this? also is there a way to make the cables from a corsair RMi psu more pliable?

bend them back and forth a bunch of times

Pro Tip: don't use flash when taking pictures of your build; use a longer exposure instead. Prop up your camera with something (preferably a tripod) if necessary.

if you use retarded/autistic/etc to mean stupid please gtfo

Having them in the front 3 trays would give you a bit more room to work with the cables, you could also getting a splitter for sata power instead of the daisy chained power connectors, those tend to only work well for drive cages.

i do have 2 12" sata power extender, i wish i could get a proper split cable rather than only having the option of using daisy chained connecters

thanks ill pick one asap. btw do you know how to convert daisy chained cable to a single connector?

 

You could take off the crimp on sata connectors except the but you would then be left with cuts in the wire from the crimps, which you could insulate. Ideally if you could keep them on and tuck them somewhere it would be less work. 

 

Another is to cut off the extra connectors and be only left with one, and insulate the wires on the last connector.
