    Lol so what they say is true, there's always one in a worse situation than yourself. We have picture content filters aswell (photobucket for example), but TPU hosted pics I can see.

    Actually I was searching for a case for a HTPC when I stumbled upon that baby and just had to have it. And then I decided to skip the HTPC project and go i7 lol. That was in November. And after endless delays I finally have everything together, and now its giving me a harder time than I thought installing the water gear. Eh well, you gotta work for happiness.

    That you do man, you really do have to work for happiness. I almost finished with my MM case, but it's all to do with getting it painted again then I can finish.. Now, I'm on to my next project, thinking up ideas and seeing on what I can do crazy for a sweet look.

    But, that case is pretty sweet. Sometimes I do envy people living across the ocean due to how somethings are via PC.

    But only sometimes. All the newegg shellshockers you guys post here make me envy like mad.

    I just don't really want to mess with this case, just fill it up with beautiful stuff lol.

    A bit of necromancing for some help.

    Looking to watercool the 800D, but I want it to look clean and I also want to hide the pump and res in the optical drive bays.

    I was wondering, do thay make something like this for a MCP655? or any other short type res/top? If not maybe suggestions?

    Kick ass top. It even allows you to run 2 loops on one pump, and doesn't lose performance to do it, thanks to those kooky hydrodynamics engineers.

    Now, you just have to find one. lol.

    Just curious, how many 5.25 drives are you running? I ran one plus a 5.25 bay which didn't leave much room for a 655(but I didn't try)

    If you mount a thin 120.3 rad across the top you may be able to squeeze it in there, but the Thermochill PA120.3 was just too thick and took up the 2 top bays.

    Fully aware of that awesome looking leaky POS, thats why they arent in stock, they are redisigning a flaw currently;)

    To both, I should have made it more clear. I really dont want a bay res, unless its that that Wile E linked, and as of now that isnt a choice. I have one optical drive installed, and want to mount a pump and short res, or top. With something like the POM 80 or 100, I could use it, but it would require a few 90* turns and some tight quarters for assmbly. I'm out for a solution that may go along those lines if possible.

    Lol, you avatar is awesome! You could always just tap the holes and use any size screws you want. I have a bunch of "off" motherboard standoffs that I just tapped out and they work great again. :)

    Ok about to do some shopping and just bit the bullet on a small tube style res and make it work with fittings.

    Need some advice on CPU blocks. Whats the one or the top 3 to look at these days?

    Thinking of 1/2 fittings everywhere but on my motherboard block, as they come in the 3/8" flavor, then using 3/8" ID tubing stretched over the barbs.

    Yay, ney?
