Yeah, that's a good point. I've never thought of it that way. But the way I do it, I don't think airflow is affected that much. I usually shove everything out of the way, especially making sure wires don't get caught up in the fans. I just don't take extra care in wire tying everything perfectly so the cables are invisible. They'll be out of the way, but it's not going to look pretty.No need to be super picky about it, but cables affect airflow, which affects component temperatures. Even tho everything works, higher temps will usually shorten lifespans.
