I FINALLY Cable Managed My PC… With PVC Conduit?!?

Two years ago when I originally built my 12-core 64GB Ryzen PC, I got right lazy at the end and never got around to cable managing it.

Luckily I had a flash of inspiration in a DIY shop, and picked up some black PVC trunking. CLEARLY this would be the solution to all my PC cable management woes, right?

Wait, what? Well as it turns out, using a mix of Corsair individually sleeved PCIe cables AND PVC trunking (instead of a PSU shroud) has ended up cleaning up my case internals quite a lot. I show this all in today’s video:
