I would just get rid of the MCR120 and then just use a t-line to fill the loop.

Because it really isn't contributing a lot of cooling potential.

Heres my PC, I made an effort to do some wire management but in the end I gave up, the Antec 300 un-modded is a little awkward to work with. I get good airflow though, two 120 fans in the front.

Maybe a 5.5/10

A couple zip ties to clump wires together would go a long way to making it look tidier.

You're penalizing his score for having water cooling?

Wow. I actually think that looks great for having water cooling.

I would say an 8.5 or 9 out of 10.

I think it looks great as well. 8.5
I would love to see the loop reworked a bit.
Perhaps the pump in the 5.25 bays just to clean up the tubing a bit.
