    It's not really your fault, the fans that come with that case have big clunky molex connectors and with zero space behind the motherboard tray there's not much more you could do. Case has good fan placement though

    The case is somewhat limiting in terms of cable management but you can still make it look cleaner with little ingenuity. There is some space behind the hard drive cage so that can be utilised. Also all the on, reset, HD activity light and front connection cables can easily be hidden if you run them just under the mobo rather than over. Can just use something as simple as blu tack to stick them to the case to the case. Then again though if your temps are fine and you can't be bothered to go inside again then who cares about the messy cables
