    Fair play! I'm not knocking the case's structure and layout just it's aesthetics - beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. ;) I think it looks 'orrible.

    ^ those ASUS silent knights are wicked coolers, like a flashy-er version of the 9700.

    I love that HAF case, I wish I had one, from the looks of it it has great c/m and air flow.

    I think tigger's ram cooler takes the cake here. That's pretty hideous looking.

    I think that's the first time I've seen an aluminium cooler look better than a copper one. Nice!

    I'm in for one of those petrol cans too. Complete H20 rework, new pump, rad, everything. Plan on useing my old Koolance controller and integrate it into this case.

    Good for you!

    If it's the Koolance kit I'm thinking of, that would work quite well. Nice one!

    It's the PC2 case - it's a customized Chieftech, and pretty decent. I am going to cannibalize the control PCB and the temp readout from it and put it in the HAF.

    The PCB gives some great functions:

    • Temp probe
    • Fan control - 3 modes, 2 are automatic
    • Overheat (system shutoff) protection

    I think it also has shut off for pump failure. If so, I'll have to figure out how to get that working with the Swiftech pump I have sitting in a box.
