So as I go through my new HP Omen 880-160. It looks like 4 SATA cables are connected. 1 for the DVD Drive, 1 for the installed Hard Drive and 2 for the extra HD spots on the top of the machine. They didn't run a 5th cable to connect for the 2nd bottom bay HD.
The problem is the 1 free SATA is very hard to access and I can't route the cable behind the MB because there is no access to the back of it. I guess I can run one in front of everything but this looks bad.
Is this an oversite when the built it?

You have a really cool system!
So it is not possible to remove the back panel, no thumb screws?
I looked at your system specs at this site but could not determine if removing the back panel was possible.
Note, you need Flash to view all contents at this HP Support site.
HP has done some nice cable management in your system.
It is hard to see how many SATA ports are available on the MB. Do you have an open SATA port for the additional HDD?
You may be able to remove the back panel and then route the SATA cable to the open HDD bay. Or can you remove the HDD enclosure to route a SATA and power cable to the open HDD bay?
Have you run the final fantasy 15 benchmark?
