Hey guys, just wondering if you might have any tips on what I should do.

I should be getting the IN-WIN GRone full tower case within the next day or 2,and the fact that it don't have tie down spots is sort of bothering me. It has a see through side panel so of course I want it to look the best it can. Is there any little tricks for me to keep everything flat/tight without tie off spots? Is electrical tape a safe choice as a last resort to tape them to the back side of the motherboard tray? Thanks for any help <3

There will be a few cables that arent going anywhere, like your 24pin and 4/6/8 pin cpu plugs depending on the motherboard. These are going to be heavier cables, especially the 24 pin and they wont move a lot. Depending on how many cables you need to route, you should be able to tie cables onto the sides of these.

Oh and a quick question if anyone see's this, after I install my OS,(onto my SSD),do I then hook up my HDD or should I keep updating the drivers and updating windows onto the SSD first??

Well you will have everything plugged into the motherboard when you start off. Check everything is found on the BIOS, set up your boot drive order and load windows onto the SSD. Your motherboard manual should tell you if theres an idea SATA port for the boot drive to be plugged into too.
