Damn you have some killer hardware but your cable management is hurting you. The only real problems I see is the CPU power and that 4 pin molex. Can you run your CPU power through the back of the case? same with the 4 pin? If no, than Dermal time!

you can do some work with zip ties, or even pull some wires back. its not a big deal, but would make it nicer because you have a window.

BTW my hardware is nicer. lol j/k

I would try routing a few of those wires behind the mobo tray. you can always get some extenders if they won't fit. It's really just a looks thing though and probably won't have any effect on your temps, just do it if you want to.

Haha. Seriously, That was really pointless. I think he was commenting on the "my hardware is better," but still, completely pointless.

I love the HAF X as you can had a ton of cables and the mess they naturally cause.

You should be able to run the power cable for the front intake fan behind the HDD rack. From there you can run the molex connector from the PSU behind the mobo tray and connect the fan there where it's out of sight.

It looks like you have a couple random connectors as well. Tuck those behind the tray or above it (there's a gap between the mobo tray and the top exhaust fan(s) where you can run cables through.

As always, zip ties and cable extenders can be your friend, especially in a case with as much room as the HAF X.
