Wiring

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.
