You could try a cable comb like this one: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/23374/wir-140/LutroO_Cable_Comb_Codename_Stealth_-_10-Pin_-_Black_.html?tl=g2c34s2206

Or you could sew them together. Just two of the more popular options I've seen people use.

Been pretty busy last month..so, here is the progress.

First, there came black screws for rads and fans mounting:

Ordered cable combs for ICEMODZ sleevings, XSPC Raystorm for cpu and Koolance flow meter. Combs and XSPC on the way, flow meter in the home.

And now, the big things.

As first, new metal sheets. No more rust and concavity.

As you can see, the middle box is velded into the main case construction, and the pedestal is wider than the case itself (also, can be removed completely). In the middle box is place for psu, pump and 4HDD box. In the pedestal, 4 HDD's on the bottom, and nothing else. On the back of pedestal top panel we will make a hole, so PSU takes air from pedestal itself, and not from the middle box. Pedestal side panels will have two 120 mm fans each, with non movable plexi window in the middle (alienware print inside with red backlight), and side panels will open upwards. For that to be done properly, I ordered gas struts, one on each panel, and one for each ''suicide'' panel. Next thing to do is make holes for the 360 mm rad, make a custom dual 5.25 metal cover (flow meter goes in the middle of it), and order new, 5,25 fan controller. There is still a lot of work to do, but me, and my friend Chris have our way, and see our vision, and that is the most important thing. Pedestal width on the bottom is 39,5cm, overall height of the case is 80cm. I can tolerate everything except being tight with space. Also still need to order some fittings from Enzotech and EKWB, but that are parts for the final wc loop assembly. There are much more imprtant things to do till that.

Stay tuned

P.S. greetings to DizZz, who asked for moving my build log on the right place.
