    A good idea for cable management?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ADHESIVE-BACKE...QQcmdZViewItem

    Some of them, stick them around you case, and run zip ties through them to route the wires?

    Good idea? lol.

    Will be ok as long as they're out of sight.

    I've used aluminium clips with adhesive backing as they can be opened and closed easily whereas with the cable ties you would have to cut them?

    not necessarily, if you can get a small enough flat-head screwdriver, you can insert it between the clip and unzip the cable tie. Thats what i do when i have to amend my pump-position in my case (as its cable tied to the front of the case to hold it the wrong way up)

    You can also get cable ties with a release clip, push down on the clip and pull to release.

    I generally Just tie to the back of the drive bays (runs from top to bottom in my case), seems to work well enough.

    On an E-ATX case theres usually enough room between the drives and the mobo for something like this, if you ran up the case every couple of inch's and just peeled off wires when needed it would look very nice.
