PC CASE IS A JUNGLE!
I have a Antec Performance plus 660 AMG with a True Power 330, it has so many molex's thats its horrible looking inside, I have no idea how to manage so many cables, they just dangle and I dont want to cut em off.

I use wire loom and cable ties to manage unsightly cables. It makes them much more managable and ....uh-oh...seem to be writing a shampoo commercial. But seriously, that's what I use-works.4200+x2,a8n-sli premium,2gig pc3500,7800gt,7x sata hdds (160gig-320gig),2x dvdrw,630w psu,gigabyte aurora

Get yourself some colored nylon cable ties, unplug power from the system, and tie that stuff up.GA 7n400pro

i use the stuff that they use under hoods of cars so the wires dont melt... makes for a cool mechanical look.. i also shove whatever i can fid behind the mobo....I don't like signatures.

See if you can wind some of the extras around and stash em next to the non visable side of the powersupply, or maybe try behind the mb's tray...

spiral wraps are also helpful aside from cable ties. i usually hide the power supply cables at the inner portion of the case beside the cdrom bays then tie them up to fix them in one position.E7300 | Gigabyte Volar | Asus P5QL PRO | 4 x 1GB Team Extreem Dark DDR2 800 | Palit 9600GT Sonic 1GB DDR3 | HEC Raptor 500W | 120GB, 320GB, 200GB SATA HDD | 20x LiteOn DVDWR | Viewsonic 19" Wide

Could we have a little snap shot out of it?If only the dead can speak, then we will know what's happening to us all next...

I second TKOP's thoughts... use what you have to, and cram the rest out of site above or next to the PS.

You can get small colored velcro ties, which are nice when you have to move things around again; ie no zips to cut.

I got a few pics on FTP for other stuff, so here goes:
This is what your basic first build looks like, with stock IDE cables, etc:
welcome to the jungle
Second phase, another build. Large file, not intended to shocase wiring, just rounded cables and nylon tie wraps to tidy things up:
now that's better
Phase III, again, large file showing nylon braided tubing cut and wrapped with ties. This Chieftec Dragon case is roomy enough to tuck all the excess leads/molex up above the power supply.
people who have glass windows
And lastly, for the perfectionist, (not me):
now you see them
now you don't

this is how i hid my cables behind my motherboard
* hint* get power cable extensions so it is easer to reroute the wires
