In addition I shall also ensure and it shall be my pleasure that a suitable and memorable coat of arms be made forthwith - by a certain and well known member of this faculty for this truly well earned honour.
Well, thank you, Doc. That is very kind and gracious, as usual.

EDIT: Thank you too, COMPUTIAC. I just now saw your post.

Interesting cooler set up Roadking and very nice build!! My XM case has a drop down side panel like yours has a swing away and the only problem I find with this setup id the trailing cables for the fan/s. Mine has 2 X 140 in the side pity it couldn't be rigged so that pushing home and locking the panel didn't automatically plug those leads in and out eh? Like have a plug on the door and a socket on the case edge where they meet.
I am now just wondering how that could be done.....

Hey real nice rig toner like the colour the only thing I would have done would be to have swung that cooler through 90 degrees anti clockwise to bring those tubes up higher and like Non's fit a cover over the PSU cables like the HAF XM has.

But still very impressed as I do like neatness.
Are you referring to the PUMP rotating it 90 counter-clockwise to tighten/curve the hoses some?

I wanted to have the radiator the other way (hoses @ front of the case) but the way I have the radiator in this case is the ONLY way it will fit (unless I got a full tower case with more room up top). The H100i fit either way. The fill-end of the radiator is raised up and the fans come from the factory screwed on on the same side making it flush, but I had to unscrew the fans, flip the radiator and install it this way since there isn't enough room inside the case to have the radiator 180 degrees from the way I installed it (the mobo ports area is in the way).

I am also thinking of getting an extension cable for the pump power cable so I can run it through behind the case. I HATE seeing that cable hanging there in photo 2! There is also an ALL BLACK extension cable for the power supply harness I want to order as that's the only thing throwing off my color scheme (besides the couple pcie cards that are green).

Shouldn't make that much difference mate as there is stacks of space for air flow around from the ends of that cover. Just thought how about making a few neat holes in the top of the cover to allow the flow upwards?? It wouldn't look bad as long as the holes were kept neat and reasonablt small - just use more

Cooler Master store sells them for $2.50, I think. They sure make the clutter look better and enable you to route cables different and still keep it looking tidy. I bought 3 of them from Cooler Master. I'm not sure if they sell the HAF XM ones or the HAF X ones, but it does not matter, they're both the same.
Thanks guys and those lately!

Cooler Master online store hasn't in their shop anymore those cover for HAF X/XM, but that doesn't matter, i can always build my own with metal mesh.

Ok I just ran mine back so it was up an out of sight a bit as the rad fitted anyway and the tubes were a tad long anyway. Yep that cable would look better routed through on of those ports in the back near where the 24 comes though eh. I like Britton hate seeing colour onside I wrapped my 24 pin and any other exposed non black wiring up in matt black home made tape so that even it didn't show but potty is as potty does

Actually if one got hold of some of those larger TV dinner trays they would be so easy to form to shape plus that ridged look some have would be real cool

In some respects along with Brits.
Just remember for example re cars - the hood is the bonnet and the trunk is the boot.
Somehow saying you are going to give someone the trunk just doesn't fly.

Other examples include pants for underwear, braces for suspenders, and suspenders for garter belts. A Brit could get in a lot of trouble in the U.S. by innocently saying he will knock up a woman.
