With those style HDD cages you can poke zip ties through the holes and tie down cables to the cage. Gives you some more space to hide some extra cables near the front. You do have an SSD mounted there though.

Bit late, but as promised:

This is a Shinobi case. The best way to do this is when you have both side panels off. My HDD cages are completely toolless, which means that *every* bay has these plastic clips on them. These require removal in order to mount a drive, however, you can also just take them off, not mount a drive, and well... Just leave them off!

Doing that will give you (in my case (no pun intended)) 3 round holes and 2 more different ones:



You find the holes closest together, poke a zip-tie through one, reach from the other side and push it back through the other hole. You then push your cables to the HDD cage and pull the zip-tie to secure it all into place.

In this case I've done a quick mock-up build for you and I found that I only had 2 Sata cables and a fan cable that I needed to tie up there, so I grabbed a random Sata power cable bundle and threw it in there.



As you can see, the HDD cages are rather small and therefore offer a lot of space between the cage and the side panel:



If you find your zip ties are too short, you can easily tie their end to eachother and so creating a longer zip tie. You could also tie cables to other cables that are already tied into place

Rick. Thank you so much for taking the time to take these pics for me. I have said it before but there is no better pc community on the Internet. I will definitely try your advice next time I work with a case like this.

This absolutely made my day. Thanks again.

-Jon D.

Not a problem at all, mate!

It'll look even better if you put some sort of metal/plastic sheet between the motherboard tray and the HDD cage (extending the mobo tray)
