Hey all, as the title suggests, i'm wondering what the best ITX case is for cable management. i'm basically building a mini ITX gaming computer and I would like to know which case works best for Cables. I'm looking at the Bitfenix prodigy but I.m looking at going with a modular psu which I hear wo'nt work great with this case? Any thoughts? Thanks

For cable management? prodigy is terrible for that, I own one myself so I'm speaking from experience.

compared to pretty much everything else its pretty damn good, granted i down own one but ive seen build with them and if you try at it you can make them look pretty good.

It doesn't have any cable management of it's own, all the cable management is left to the user to create if that makes sense. it doesn't really have anywhere to hide cables, they just all come out the front of the psu crowding up the case and whatnot.

the best place ive seen to hide them is next to the power supply, just stuff most of the cables in a bunch.

besides most itx cases are self cable management anyways, i dont know of any that really have tie downs. another solution would be to get tie down hooks that have stick tape on one side and a hook on the other and just put it where needed on the case.

Hmm idk, I have a node 304 also and I tend to prefer it's cable management better than the prodigy but I might just be crazy lol

I have a bitfenix prodigy myself. Built it like a week ago and it was my first build; I thought cable management was a breeze. The only cables that really portrude are the psu cable, the radiator hoses, and some fan headers/I/O panel stuff. Everything else I tucked inside the psu cage.

Anyway I had a great experience with my Prodigy so I vote for it.
