    If we could move the Haswell, its TIM and its overclocking theoreticals into a separate thread, that'd be great.

    Some nice builds posted recently, keep it up!

    To be fair, the HAF X isn't exactly renown for its cable management options.

    Honestly, I know it's atrocious but between work and school I don't really have a lot of time to do her right. When I built it I was happy that everything was working and thank the fates nothing was DOA.

    Which is unfortunate when people spend extra on cooling and then don't take twenty minutes or so to actually avoid obstructing airflow.

    Takes a lot more than 20 minutes if you want to do an acceptable job. My pictures a few posts up show nearly perfect cable management, yet it took me close to 3 hours of planning and reconfiguring to get it just right. Some people are just lazy or don't have the time for a few degree difference at best.

    I tried to do some cable management, but I got bored after about half an hour and decided I wanted to play some computer games instead of wrestle with cables.

    To do a perfect cable management sure. To avoid obstructing airflow about 20 minutes are enough.

    Updated build!

    Latest update to my build my next step it to get a new motherboard and go black and white theme! After that I'm going with a black and white custom loop them. Any thoughts on the mobo for that? I'm thinking a Z87 sabertooth with some special spray paint to the special dust covers and some white cable fittings as well as a different case!(phantom 530 black?)
