I was thinking about a horizontal piece of plexi to make it two chambers like some people have so it would be hard to run the wires through the grommet without it looking like crap.



honestly I have only run "A" fan lead so far ...... i ran it between the motherboard and MB tray.....I have not run anything "bigger" yet might try that way ......got me looking now.

Well what I want ideas on is the front panel power/reset etc. From the front to the motherboard shouldn't have any reason to go under the mb.

I used a mirrored acrylic panel behind the front chassis panel and a midplate so that all the front panel cabling is hidden behind the panel and routes below the midplate to go where it needs without being visible.

All my top rads fan wiring drops down behind the panel from above.

The optical drive bays have been cut shorter so they are hidden behind the panel as well, since they only need to hold shorter bay mount devices.

Here's a bit from a previous post with a pic:

Adding a midplate helps to create a lower area where cable can be run down the center where they are pretty much out of sight with either rads or the hard drive cages in place.

I think the Biggest aid to hiding the cables is to create an inner front panel that boxes in the drive bays with the fan controller cabling, and allows all the front panel USB, audio, led wiring to be run into the lower area totally unseen.

I used mirror acrylic on my midplate and inner front panel, which creates a pretty cool effect, but white or black to match or contrast you case color would look good as well.

The dropped area of the inner front panel allows all the top rad's fan cabling as well as the rear fans and temp sensor cabling to run invisibly between the rads and then down behind the front panel so none of it shows.

I'm glad you responded to my question. That is a clever way to accomplish hiding the wiring. I haven't even thought about my fan wiring from my upper rads yet. I just got my rads in the mail today 2 Phobya G-Changer V-2 420mm. I haven't even decided on fans yet let alone a color scheme. I notice you use a lot of Aero Cool fans, more so than anyone else I've seen. Are those fans you would recommend? All I have so far are the rads, Core X9 Snow Edition, 5820k, Gigabyte X99-UD5(Black&Gold), D5 pump, and a desire to use a lot of EK hardware. Just wanna say love your work and I've checked out most of your build logs awesome stuff. I never seen a log for the build you pictured though. If there is any advice for my second custom loop ever I'm all ears.

hi all im now the new owner of a core x9 now just have to sell the 750d case
post #2566 of 4112
Just made a new side acrylic panel for my x9:) thanks SHiZNiLTi for the idea and help with measurements:)

I bought it at local lowes instead of online cause it was ony 18$ I had to cut very little of it with the dremel which was pretty easy.

Don't mind the wire mess... still need to do that and light it up in there lol and the hdd siting on top which i have to sit it like that because it has a broken seta connector mad.gif

I like it alot better than the scratch fest panel it came with.

This is how my build look like in the dark. As you can see the liquid needs more UV.







I'm planning to buy the Darkside 30cm UV LED strip to lit the liquid.
