Modding your printer case so CIS tubes do not kink.
I am a Model Maker by trade, I can provide a video if you are unsure how to do this.
You need two tools to do this, the propane torch is optional.
Start by scribing a cut line at indicated by the photos using the exacto knife.
Cut the plastic starting from the top using the cutters, they must be the same cutters I show.
Remove plastic to make room for ink cables.  Use exacto knife to carefully clean up your opening.
OPTIONAL WITH EXTREME CARE
 Use the torch to “flame polish the edges”.  Only do this if you have done this before, it’s not needed to make this solution work.
Keep the ink reservoir on the same level as the printer, air in the line is OK and this will clear in time.
Make sure you install the little 1 way air filters into the ink reservoirs, you need to create a vacuum.
You just voided your printer warrantee, Congratulations!

I've seen a couple other videos for the Artisan 710 that don't require that much modification to route the hoses.  Check out this video:
