yea i use cable ties and some of those adhesive hooks for the side but my problem is that there is a big bunch of wires at the top the case right where they come out of the psu. and i want to try and get rid of it. i was just wondering if anybody had any technique tips and if there was a site that could also help.

Don't know of any good how to's..I usually go to modding sites to get ideas(MRL sticky has lots of sites).

do you have any pics of the inside of your case? maybe someone here can give you some ideas :)

if theyre unused wires coming out of ur PSU, u can just open it up and cut em off really really close to the soldering point (or just desolder em)

well, you could get some cable wrap and wrap it, then stick it behind (on the other side of) your drives. I do that and it looks very need. just run it down the back of the case and even behind the mobo. you may have to take the board out and play with some things, but if your PSU cables are long enough, they should be ok.
