Default 500D SE Cable Management

Hello,

I'm having some small issues with the cable management in 500D SE. Basically the main problem is that the SATA power cables for the two HDD mounted on the left side of the case are blocking the window panel from closing.

I'm using the HX850 power supply and two SATA cables that give power to the two HDDs as well as some other peripherals, like the Commander Pro etc.

How am I supposed to fit those bulky cables and leave enough room for the window panel to close? It makes it worse that I have the flip the them to match the rotation of the port.

How did people deal with it?

Might have to use two cables and just use the end connector.

I wish I had known what a pain in the *** this case turned out to be before I bought it. I think I was blinded by the glass lol.

Hello,

yes I'm using two separate cables but it's the rotation of the two HDD's port that forces me to flip the cables which as a result makes them occupy much more space. I've only had the case for a couple of days and I like it so far, to be honest. It's cable management of that side that is become quite irritating but if other people can sort them out neatly, so can we.
