In these figures,
it shows how I stealth the wires. Most motherboards, like the
Epox, have more than enough mounting holes. A motherboard really
doesn't require that much support, especially if it's not going
to move around much. So, I decided to use some of the holes to
route the cables through. I also added heat shrink tubing to protect
the wiring from damage.
Here’s where the wires come through the motherboard tray. If
anyone tries this remember to use grommets and add plugs so
if you ever have to remove the tray it will be a lot easier.
How convenient, there was a mounting hole right at the rear
of AGP slot for the Radeon 9700 power cable.
In this Figure, it shows a piece of 1/8 plexi mirror cut to
fit, hiding all the wires underneath - like IDE cables, LED
headers and the USB cable.
In this Figure, you’ll see IDE cables running through slots
in the plexi mirror. Notice the effect that the plexi mirror
creates - its looks like I have twelve PCI slots.
This figure shows where all the wires actually are. I also added
plugs to all the wires coming through the motherboard making
it easy to remove the motherboard tray if ever I need to.
In this figure all the IDE cables are running along the corner
beside the motherboard tray as well as the floppy cable.
