    I am starting this topic on what I have done and will do on my case Mod. I think this is easier to post on this one topic than on a lot.

    if i were you id keep the backplates black to match all the card, otherwise itll clash with the rest of the card.

    i need to get paid and still waiting on some stuff to arrive for mine.

    yours is looking SWEEEETTTT!!

    New door from Cooler Master came in a few days ago. Think it looks way better than the normal door. :)

    I am still thinking of what to do. I am also thinking of water cooling both cards and the CPU with my own water cooling loops. I had two loops in my old computer. I have the rads and cpu block. I will need to get two GTX 690 blocks and two new pumps as well another water rez. I have one that will hold the water for both cards just need a new one for the CPU. I will also get a block to cool the CPU power regulators. With my CPU running at 5GHZ it will need it with no CPU fan blowing on it.

    Ya it seams that my idea about that people like. It just made since when I had no point for it but still wanted to use it in some way. I am going to get light black plastic and put it in the holes and then the light will glow through it and look cool...;)

    I want to water cool both GTX 690s. I have two 3 fan rads from my old computer. I am trying to figure out how to put them in the case. One will cool the CPU the other will cool the cards. Two loops. I know one will fit were I have the Corsair rad now with no problem. The problem is I have no idea were to put the 2nd rad.


    Here is the GTX 690 cooling I have picked out so far.

    XSPC Razor GTX 690 - Full Cover VGA Water-Block with Multiport Connector

    this may sound a bit weird, i dont know much on water cooling but couldnt you double two rads up?

    id have them layered so that fans were in the middle. and on the sides. fans-rad-fans-rad

    if not then you may have to see if they fit across the top in line, where you dvd drive is. or mod the front and have it vertical

    I could do that but I think with fan-rad-fan-rad would be to think and end up hitting the mother board etc. I am trying to look up mods for water cooling for haf 932..... any help with that would be nice. Thanks
