Default PC Cable Management

I have several workstations that are in a training room that I need to wire up and it has to look clean. Can anyone recommend any good products?

Get a bunch of twist ties and mounting bases from Home Depot. You can buy wire sleeving. But, it is time consuming to get it setup.

I think he means the wires outside of the case (aka power cords, network cables, etc.) But I could be wrong.. But they also make sleeving kits for that as well, Also they make "cable raceways" Here is an Example

you are correct PokerDegenerate, I did mean wires outside the case. I've looked at the raceways and used them in the past. The are kind of a pain in the butt, plus replacing wires can be difficult as well. I really need something flexible that I can bundle all the wires up with. Do the "sleeving kits" you mentioned do this? Do you a link for someone that sells sleaving kits for external wiring?

Are you talking about something like a patch cable management unit. We use these things to keep things neat. They work great.

no, not patch management. Just a simple cable management solution for keyboard, video, mouse and networking cables thats not zip ties. I figure there has got to be something clever out there that is simple and does the job.

Have you ever used a CableCloak?

http://cgi.ebay.com/CableCloak_W0QQitemZ140309986831QQcmdZViewItemQQpt ZPCA_Cables_Adapters?hash=item140309986831&_trksid =p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|3 9%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50

I found it on ebay and it looks pretty awesome. I think I might give it a try. Also, thanks for posting the links. I went out to electriduct.com and found lots of good stuff there as well.

I try to hide as many cables behind the motherboard tray as possible. Just thread them round the back and out where they are needed. Tie anything loose up with cable ties, you don't need anything more than that.
