    I know you're loving all that extra room you've got now. But, may I ask, why have two fans on the same side of your rear 120mm res.? Wouldn't it work better if they made a reservoir sandwich? Also, what did you end up doing to the front case badge thing? I see it says Core something another but it was at a weird angle.

    It is a gutted fan. Im using the outer shell for a shroud. i took the phenom sticker out and printed a intel I7 logo and used stick glue to put it in there with the silicon cover

    Hey brandon. Overall I love it, but here is a few things I think can be done to DRASTICALLY improve the looks of it.

    1-Find a way to route the sata cables by the back, also some black cables would come in handy, even if they show a bit, nobody can tell :D
    2-the front panel connectors or anything that is not in black, either by the $10 sleeve pack from PPCS that I bought to do my front panel and some misc. wires. Works great, not MDPC, but will make it look 20x better! either sleeve it or use some wire loom for them
    3-try, if possible to clean up the tubing a bit, I haven't paid attention to the loop but if that can be shortened or improved somehow that'll be tits :D

    Other than that I think you did a heck of a job and all the painting and stuff came out great. Now paint the PSU bracket would ya :D

    thanks guys! yea the sata cables are at the nearest holes but ill relook @ them to see what i can do. the sleeving sounds nice! The tubing is horrible i know but it has good water flow so as of now it will work but i need to order 90 deg barbs and i have to go get some screws for my NB block that ive been wanting to install. thanks for all the input guys! it took about 4 hours to run this tubing today!

    *EDIT*

    Also installed all of my HTPC parts in my NZXT M59 case and set everything back to stock clock for now til that massive new heatsink gets here. i installed 4 UV coolermaster fans in the case and soon gonna install a blue 140MM fan on one of the top ones. the heatsink will have two NZXT fans in a push/pull system.

    LOL THANKS COLD STORM!

    ok one question. im on my HTPC posting this but i cannot get realtemp or coretemp to work. It keeps saying CPU not supported? i would think a dual core pentium would be supported?

    is there a way to get it to work or another program i can use?
