Very nice build! But yes, cable management needs work for that more cleaner look. Most cases now and days, including yours, have that motherboard tray so you would wire them behind the motherboard and fit the connections through those grommets.
What are you doing with that second video card if you don't mine me asking. Virtualization?
Thank you !
Initially I bought the second card for my work computer where I wanned to connect 4 monitors, and the integrated Intel card would only carry 3. As expected, my company did not approve of my over-enthusiasm with the monitors count, so I moved the card back to my home computer.
Now I use it sometimes to check compatibility for my little OpenCL program that I wrote just to learn the API (as a software developer). I want to learn OpenCL when I have the time, even though I have no professional use for it now, and sometimes I want to test my code on all 3 cards (AMD, Intel, nVidia, both GPU and CPU if possible). Come to think of it, recently my Threadripper CPU no longer shows up as an OpenCL device in the "AMD APP" platform... must be some driver updates.
What do you mean virtualization ? Like using VirtualBox with 3D acceleration enabled for the guest OS ?

Respectable build man!
You can find decent cables of various lengths on amazon, plus there are the usual sources for sleeved cables as well, but for the stuff that isn't seen, who cares about sleeved as long as it's quality and works.
Heck, I still need to get inside mine and redo all of the cabling. I got lazy earlier this year with the cable management when I did the upgrades and was lucky to even get my side panel on.
First builds always are a little messy. I wouldn't worry about it too much. That said though, improving the cable situation is as simple as unplugging a couple of them and running them through the grommets and back out. If you're ever inclined to do so I'd suggest starting with the motherboard's 24 pin and 8 pin EPS connectors.
