13 Examples of Good Cable Management to Inspire Your New PC Build

13 Examples of Good Cable Management to Inspire Your New PC Build

If there’s one area of setting up a new PC that’s frequently forgotten, it’s wire management. If you’re unfamiliar with cable management (in the context of creating a PC or battlestation), it’s the process of organising and routing the wires in your computer or behind your desk so that they look neat and tidy and don’t block the airflow in your computer’s chassis.

I’m not a cable zealot by any stretch of the imagination. In most circumstances, I believe that a little effort to keep wires away from your motherboard and case fans is sufficient as long as your main goal is to design a PC that will allow you to play your favourite games.

However, I am a huge fan of well-organized cable management. There aren’t many things in life that appeal to me more than a well organised PC with quality cabling.

And, if you want something that is more than simply a gaming PC—something that is truly stunning and impressive—you must ensure that your wiring is up to par.

I’ve gathered a few examples of exceptionally good wiring to assist you get an idea of what good cable management looks like and to inspire your new forthcoming setup.

How-to-Cable-Manage-A-PC

This construction doesn’t have any over-the-top liquid cooling. There aren’t too many RGB lights. It doesn’t have any insane colour schemes to make it stand out. It’s just a simple white and black design with excellent cable management. The bespoke cables, on the other hand, add a pleasant touch…

If you have good cable management, an extreme custom liquid cooling setup can take the focus off your cables entirely. No matter how cool your liquid cooling loop is, if your cable management is bad, your system will not look amazing. This build’s cabling is well-done, allowing the liquid cooling system to take centre stage.

Here’s a close-up of some beautiful custom braided cables. Custom cables, if you have the extra cash, will make your project (and cable management) stand out.

I’m more of a tuck-all-excess-cables-under-the-motherboard-tray type of person. It’s the same idea as putting all your dirty laundry under your bed to make your room look tidy. To some extent, it works. However, if you want proper cable management.

Next-Level-Cabling

Somehow, this genius managed to make his pipe appear to be part of his cable system, and his cable setup to appear to be part of his piping. This kind of cable management comes about once every millennium… Boys and gals, eat your hearts out.

Behind-the-Desk-Cable-Management

We frequently compliment system builders on excellent cable management when all they’ve done is hide their cable mess behind their desk. There are a few of us, though, who take cable management a little more seriously. We salute you, oh cable manager in the unseen realm of “behind-the-desk,” we salute you.

Color-Coded-Cable-Management

There are two types of cable management: excellent cable management and next-level cable management. It’s not that this builder used any kind of magic with their cabling; instead, it’s the way they matched their wires to their fans and power supply that elevates this build to new heights.

Green-and-Black

I had no idea how much I liked the colour combination of green, black, white, and grey until I saw this…

Keeping your cables tidy underneath your motherboard is similar to keeping your workstation clean. It’s a next-level effort that only the purest of cable managers can pull off.

There’s nothing special about this place. It’s just some good ol’ cable management. It completes the task.

Cable Managment

When you have a good-looking construction already and your cabling abilities improve it, you’ve accomplished something that few people will ever do.

Small-Form-Factor-Cable-Management

It’s not the end of the world if you have a large case and your wires aren’t up to par. If you’re designing a tiny form-factor gaming PC, however, you’ll find yourself in a jam if you don’t prioritise good wire management. This, on the other hand, is an excellent example of cable management in a compact casing.

Mini-ITX-Cable-Management-

This is an excellent example of cable management, but it also demonstrates how much a decent casing can simplify the process of making your cable look attractive. The red panel that extends along the side of the case’s side panel and covers the power supply makes it very easy to hide all of the cords from the power supply.
