People have different preferences when it comes to cable management, a lot of it is subject to opinion!
Personally, if a case has built in cable management (holes in the case with rubber flaps etc), then I will tuck the cables behind and tie them up as intended. If the case doesn't have cable management, I tend to tie the power cables I'm using together a bit, and given them just enough stretch to reach their intended port. For example, the auxiliary CPU power cable is tied to the 24 pin cable, and then *branches off" to it's appropriate spot.
I tend to run the SATA cables along the bottom of the case, then straight up when they're underneath the SATA ports (vertical cables look better than loose diagonal ones in my opinion)
