    I was interested in this right up until noticing the cable squid coming out of the pump at anandtech. Unless I feel like cutting up my new $140 cooler I can't work with that. You won't find this in any cable tidy rigs. Unfortunate because I can't see any other 140mm options.

    I'd splice the rad/res into a cleaner AIO system but that would be absurdly pricey.
