Word of advice though: For my situation using an Asus Maximus XI Formula, a TT-brand 200mm PCIE 16x riser cable was just *barely* long enough and I had some sweaty moments. I'd strongly suggest looking for one that's just a bit longer. 300mm is overkill and even 250mm is probably a little more than you need, but I haven't seen any produced in 220mm which would probably be about perfect.

You'd think it'd be a nice opportunity for Corsair to pair up with someone and make some perfect length cables for the 1000D, since they already have a piece of the cable market.

Anyone done an underglow for the 1000D, similar to what a certain other unnamed company is offering as a package?

Seems to me it would probably be pretty straightforward to run another NodePro off one of my CoPros, and run the RGB strip extension cables out the bottom vents under the drive bay, and magnetically attach the strips between the "foot" part and the baseplate?

I really need to flip my computer over and see if there's a problem with routing cables that way, or better ideas.... but I don't want to turn it off :(

That kind of sexy thing indeed!

Did you drill some holes, or route cables around the outside somehow? I can see one way to do an external cabling, and one way that would require me to pop some holes in the 'foot' but otherwise allow me to keep it all cabled internally.

I think I'm going out the vents below the drive cage, into the void created by the v shape in the foot, directly to the back of the case and around the edges of the foot into the gap between the low part of the foot and the base. It's not ideal but requires no drilling and no cables anywhere around the doors or hinges.

Got the new strips, ran the cabling as planned and yeah for the cost of one drive bay it's a pretty workable solution. Invisible little bit of cable run from the under-foot to the over-foot, and the strips magnet-attached to the bottom of the base-plate. Had plenty of cables with the included extensions to pull back to a decent spot for a NoPro, and luckily that meant I didn't have to run any more to my already maxed-out pair of CoPros.

One RGB strip left one right, and that left me two more to pull off the dangling end of the front panel strips. Cool.

Now I need to figure out something for some diffusers, cause the bottom would look much cooler pulsing that way.
