Does anyone have any good ways/ideas to clean up all the wiring in a stand?

Mine is getting out of control, and I will be adding a reef keeper(more wires) and really want to make the commitment to avoid the rats nest.

After many computer builds I've come to realize cable management just comes with practice. If you haven't done a lot of cable management and unsure of what will stay permanent and what won't, I recommend starting off with velcro cable ties like this (http://static.rapidonline.com/catalogueimages/Module/M072417P01WL.jpg)

They do the work but if you want to look good to i wouldn't use this..Also if you have any sensors and you want to clean them or replace you will have to cut all of them and then use new ones,with the panduit you just take off the cover when all done just click it back in place...

Actually these eBay ties are infact velcro. They roll / wrap on themselves and harness up wiring quite nice. If you have to modify the harness, like velcro, you just peel them off, make your adjustment and re-apply the same wrap. :razz:

Yup... so does any respectable Electrical supplier, like Torbram in PoCo.

Panduit's web site is pretty cool too!

Thanks everyone, I picked up some Panduit from Gescan. Its a good product and has an adhesive backing so I don't have to worry about getting drill shavings in the sump!

I bought too much however. Anyone in the market? haha
