    Wow, never thought red can look so good! I normally don't like red themed systems, but thats a sweet system you have.

    LOVE IT!

    However, my only snags are the blue LEDs in fan controller & the cable management.

    8/10

    :rockout:

    Otherwise, freaking sick set up, nicely done and well maintained.

    Hey thanks guys. This is my first serious attempt at wire management. lol. I did manage to get all of the psu wires routed behind the mobo tray leaving only the header panel wires in front. As far as the light on the controller, for some odd reason i was under the impression they were all red. SUPRISE! They weren't. And the middle light never worked. I would like to get a contoller with no lights. But that's pretty much impossible.

    Performance Pc's...http://www.performance-pcs.com/cata...oduct_info&cPath=59_413_292&products_id=23368 or with the dull colored like mine...
    http://www.performance-pcs.com/cata...roduct_info&cPath=59_413_292&products_id=4184 this tubing is great stuff. Although it would be wise to use either one size smaller clamps if you go with plastic clamps or use fully adjustable metal clamps as this tubing fits a hair loose. As far as the dye staining goes, that's why I went with the "colored" tubing and clear coolant...The rig I did in blue is really stained... :(

    It is a little pricey,BUT....the stuff I used; the tubing with the dull finish, does not kink that easy. It is worth the price. And it's only $1.50 a foot.

    I like how the red tubes match your motherboard. Great hardware, clean paint job and I think you did a good job on the cable management. Awesome case mod 8/10


    My only con is the velcro on top. It is a good idea for quick and easy modding, but not a clean look to me. I would put a little more time and done pin clips or push clips (since you still want to be able to remove the radiator).

    The velcro looks alot better in person than in the pic's that's for sure...I'll check out the clip or push clip idea you have. Thanks for the input.

    Thanks Bjorn. And the forth will be here in the next year and a half. I hope AMD mobo makers can come up with some cooler boards by then as I would like to do a none Intel rig this next time.

    A suggestion though, you can turn the pump upright so that the tube going from the res to pump is in a straight form instead of cruved, and if you can fit the rad inside, do so.. with a case that big, a rad sitting on top is kinda awkward. With tubes sticking out with irregular bends..

    Nice job, although when I saw the red tubing I could of sworn you were going to have ATI cards.

    This is not a negative comment, I gave you a 9 only because you need to really wow me to get a 10. Very clean and cool looking build :)

    looks nasty!
    Apogee GTZ is a plus, my favo block!
    i'd say 9/10
    and it will be perfect if those cables re-arranged?
