    Then you haven't used straight distilled water. It outperforms all of the fancy coolants and additives.

    Nope. Just plain distilled water. I've had mine leak with no issues. Distilled water is a terrible conductor. It's the impurities that conduct electricity.

    The budget gamer forever :rockout:

    Only complaint about this build is the Asus 5770. It was only $130 after rebate but probably has the worst cooling design of any 5770 and barely overclocks. I should have waited for a Hawk promo :(

    Strange, I have that same 5770 and it cools just fine. I haven't bothered to OC it yet thou, as my X2 is the thing holding it back...

    i think anything that you put in the water is too messy, clean water is nicer, and easier to handle, but thats just me

    use colored tubes instead

    So I break open this Thermaltake V3 case. I tear it down to its minimal and notice something: This thing bears a lot of resemblance to some other case I've seen before. I've got 2 HEC Blitz cases and start noticing a few things about the Thermaltake case in common:

    Uses the exact same feet
    PCI panels comes off the same way
    There are two panels that are reusable
    Psu filter is attached to the case the same
    Motherboard backing plate is exactly the same

    After doing some thinking I remember this HEC case. On their site all naked like.

    I'm pretty sure the V3 is that HEC case with Thermaltake's front panel and they moved the power switch and front panel ports around. Even the tooless parts are the same.

    While I don't have that HEC case, I'd be surprised if it wasn't the same thing. Too close to be chance. Not to mention a lot of similar designs in these two Blitz cases I have.

    Thanks guys!
    The full ATX motherboard is so much nicer for cable management since the front panel cables and such are at the very top of the case where it's harder to see them. I'm considering ordering a NZXT unisleve 24pin and 6pin extension, I'd have the cables go up along the front of the case on the far side of the fan, the adapter would be hidden behind the drive bays, and then they'd come down by the HDD. Should look better, I just need to get them :roll:
