    If you don't mind, could you get me a pic of the top so I can see how you mounted that 140mm rad?

    here you go Ion
    As you can see i have zipties holding it for now and i stuck some foam between the case and fan to seal it better and have less noise. Like i said it isn't done yet i still have to go alittle more cutting and get some screws and a 140mm fan grill.(PS the side isn't normally like that.)

    lets bump this thread up alittle.

    Here is the reason why you DON'T use dye

    Also i did alittle work on WM and mounted the rad the right way now.I still am trying to get WM done better it is slowly coming along. I think some holes need to be cut before things can look much better

    That first pic of the tubing looks crazy :eek:

    The WM looks much better, however I think if you cut a hole or two by the rad in the bottom you can pass some wires through there and connect them behind the tray. What do you think?

    They should! Question: How much space do you have between the radiator and the back tray?

    damn I was thinking if you had more room, you can cut out a panel and put it flush against the rad. once you did that you can then hide your clutter behind it and just have the wires only showing when entering and exiting the panel. It would have looked great. However, with that much room don't think that is possible.

    thanks for an idea. I am thinking about getting some of the small hole modders mesh and putting it along the side of it there. I don't want a solid sheet of steel because its harder to work with and i think the mesh would look kinda cool and would help hide the mess. What do you think?

    If you get mesh get one with very tiny holes. Why? one with bigger holes will show more. I had that issue once when using mesh. it was something I overlooked when buying.
