    wire mesh or split looms (but i think spit looms makes the wires *bigger*)

    wire mesh ar pretty cheap , u can ethier buy a kit, or in foot length. is around 1 dollar canadian per foot. I would recommend 10 feet of 1/4 sized wire mesh for starters, cause is always better to have more than less. For the MAIN motherboard plug, u will need to use 1/2 sized wire mesh, 2 feet is aready good for 1 PSU. To seal the ends of wire mess u will need to use heatshrink or electrical tape. Electrial tape is easier, cause no need for spending time heating it, but it will look a bit worst. I myself use electric tap which is OK, but not as good as heatshrink

    u can also try to get those cable managment hooks and tape it on the top of the case, then hook the cables so all the cables will be on top. But i would stick to wire mesh.

    do wat i did, run all your wires behind ur motherboard and use lots of tape or glue...it toke be about 2 days to get all the wiering perfet so u only have to see them when u connect it to the pluges.

    if u live in USA< there will be tons of stores that sell it. Go do google search and try to find a store with good mesh pricing. Some stores call their wire mesh braded mesh.

    i live in canada, and i get it from www.vibecomputers.com, a great site in canada with Great service.

    I hear ruber tubing from an Auto shop does a good job.

    Cheapest way is to just use electrical tape to stick the cables together, and then stick them to places you can't see in the case. I've got mine stuck under some drive bays and behind PSU mount. Can only see the wire from my Side case fan.

    You cant take them from the plug.

    Ok, so you can, but I highly say dont, as odds are ya'd mess the cable up as they have to be perfect.
