Thats an Antec P182 so it has amazing cable management as long as your PSU has long enough cords (mind didn't ). You can rout all the cables behind the mobo tray. I'll take a few pics.
thanks!

It dosnt have a window so why do you care?
Because i dont want a case thats messy inside. It hinders airflow.

I used a "20-pin Male ATX EPS 12V Intel Power Supply to 24-pin Female Motherboard, 5.5" Power Adapter Cable" and hacked off the unwanted part to use on my 8 pin motherboard connector as I couldnt find the right cable for a decent price at the time (in this country).

All the cables routed at the back of my p180 makes the side panel very tight ,Theres not much space there.

Cosmos FTW

theres no fans on the side of the case, airflow is good to go. ^^

The original P180 lacked slots in the motherboard tray to route cables to the motherboard from behind, but the P182 has slots that easily allow for this. I find the P182 to be the best case I've seen in terms of function, silence and cable management.

I have the Antec P180 and the Coolermaster Cosmos 1000. Both are great cases. I've found the Cosmos to be a bit more quiet while cooling better. Then again, the Cosmos is absolutely gigantic.
