    Front panel I/O cable that doesn't look horrible.

    Hi, I'm sorting out the cabling in my PC case and I've noticed that the front I/O panel cable looks like ass. Anyone got any ideas on how to Make it look better ? Only idea I've had so far is to run a 20 way ribbon cable under the motherboard to the other side to disguise the fugly connectors.

    Thanks.

    I'm guessing you have some kind of clear case so you can see all the inside?
    Otherwise why bother,
    personally I wouldn't run it under the motherboard I'd rather run it around the inside edges of the case

    Oops sorry missed out that the motherboard sits flat in the case.

    Ah so that's a protective/sliding base the board goes onto.
    If so guess no harm the cable going under that

    Could you not had some heatshrink or mesh sleeving over the cable?

    ​yeah it seems the best option and I've noticed a lot of modded cases only have the power button connected.

    ​I've that done but never pulled off well.

    Tape up or paint the cables and get right angle adapters?
