The inside of my case:



Any tips to hiding the cables? Theres 2 fans near the hard drives and the cables are impacting the air flow of the case as a result.

Thanks

:) 
cable-ties, electrical tape, lots of time and patience (tears screaming and crying optional)



Shroud cables in tape to keep together, turn hard drives around if your psu cables can feed in from the front it makes it a lot cleaner looking, find nooks and crannies you can feed cables through, its more a case of time,time and patience, but worth it hehe :p 
if you want to go more schizo/advanced, be prepared to drill holes behind the mobo so you can feed them through then loop over the mobo to where they're needed.

You might want to consider a new CPU cooler, as well. You can get a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ which outperforms coolers that are double or even triple its price.

Another thing to consider is to get some cable tie pads. If you get black ones it can still look good. These stick to pretty much anything, so you can run the wires along the roof of your pc behind the lip where the side panel goes on.Also, I'm gonna point you towards this guide, as it looks pretty helpful for alternatives to cable ties - http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2005/07/12/cable_tidyin...
