    nicely executed mods....

    it seems you did excellent paint job and WC set up
    I am not so sure about the position of the reservoir, but if it works for you... it works!

    nice overall modded rig with great hardware! 8/10 as soon as I can vote...

    btw chk my rig......HERE...

    Looks great. Stacked rads in that case... how? You pulled it off 7 from me if you add a couple slow speed fans on the back and top I'll up ya a point. A she sits you got nothing pullung air out. Unless you are sucking out the front...........But still that back rad is going to negate any real cross flow. I don't know, what kind of fans are you using?
    At any rate kudos for stuffing all that in there, and keeping it clean.

    Thanks, but I don't see the point in having more fans (=more noise). As of right now I'm running without the side, since I'm still undecided what to do with the side.

    The radiators are drawing air from the front.

    For those of you who have not seen the Swiftech stacked:

    All right you got an 8, just post more pics when you have finished up the side.
    When it is all buttoned up what are your temps like?

    I was tossing around the idea of hooking that rad up with my older qp 320.
    Did you add on later or buy it all at once? If the former, what kind of pressure drop and flow rate hits did you take?
    I am really quite impressed with this.

    I am also interested in that as well.
    I wonder how much 2 effect performance...?

    You got an 8 from me for stuffing a crap load of stuff in that case and keeping it clean.

    Yeah right... Try fitting a PA120.2 under there. It's almost 2cm longer.

    Temperatures: (WCG load / WCG + Gaming)
    At 900 RPM 23C/30C delta.
    At 1300 RPM 20C/25C delta.
    Fans are Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000.
    (delta is rise in CPU temp over air intake) (idle = ?. I'm never idle.).

    I always crunch, since it has such low priority in CPU so games and other tasks doesn't take any performance hits when running.

    Yeah well I didnt look at your bottom's current length. Thought they would still fit. Cuz of crunching is your primary thing, It would greatly benefit to score high performing rads. The 20C/25C delta you posted wouldve greatly be appreciated if you posted pics of your temp monitoring run.

    In any case, sweet setup. Love the tube routing, rad placement, and the fittings. lol bitspower they cost a lot.

    No, trust me, a PA does not fit. I added some more pictures in the gallery...

    Here's a temp run:

    nice... i had the stacked rads for my setup but the fans you need for those to work are insane. Performance actually dropped with the 2 stacked and decent quiet fans... i love hos clean the case is. What did you use to cut out the HDD bays?

    Yeah, stacked rads have questionable gains. I bought them as soon as they came out just because of this build.
    The HDD bays were riveted, so I just drilled them out. In fact, I drilled out all rivets for easier access/modding and painting. And then used black rivets to put it together again.
