    Craigleberry, did you have a Noctua NH-D14 or am I thinking about someone else?

    If you did what are your opinions between it and the Thermalright?

    Never owned a Noctura heatsink. But I was not impressed with the base on my IFX14. it was very lumpy and needed to be lapped. :laugh: EDIT I should add that just because my IFX-14 had a shitty base on it does not mean they all do. Overall it is a pretty good performing heatsink. But if I had the option back when I purchased this one I would have got a Promaliatech Megahalems. But they where not made back then.

    Filters still kill flow. Even with killer fans, you will get better cooling without filters.

    And I use Yate loon Mediums. At 70cfm, they aren't monstrous, but they aren't low flow either. And with 7 of them in my Stacker, they move plenty of air. Using the filters raises my temps.

    I really liked the looks of the pedestal that Erocker was considering, so I threw one together this afternoon, between gluing up things for clients. A few more coats of paint and lacquer, put hinges on the door, and I'll be ready to move my 3.120 and pump into their own little appartment.

    Why would you want 6x 5.25" bays just how many burners and fan controllers do you need LOL as for the rest it sounds like a really good setup

    you can fit HDD's in them too. 3x 5.25 can take 4x 3.5" drives and a 120mm fan to cool them.

    true but wouldn't you still be able to do that on standard 3.5" drive bays 120mm fans fit perfectly over the the bays anyways and 10 HDD bays would be better

    some people like reservoirs in the drive bays, and if youre going for a heavy dual loop then i would say you would go with 2 oif the dualslot res' :)

    and then there is a burner, a FC, maybe some other stuff and what not

    4 1 I dont like cases that have the slots going all the way down the front of the case especially if fans are occupying those areas, Example the Antec 900/1200, it just looks taky.

    they're cheap things you buy to do it, and they do work in regular bays. coolermaster sells quite a few variants last i checked.

    oh and nice on the 5 drive model, but 4 is pretty packed - without the 120mm fan heat would worry me.

    @ The Don but we're talking custom built case nothing off the shelf so wouldn't you build in room for a res or two and a couple of 3x120 rads in the bottom of the case i know i would if i were going to do it

    @ Mussels I know i have an Lian Li EX-33N cage in my RV02 which has an 120mm fan on the front and about 1/2" gap between drives if i use all three bays

    Meh, it has an 80mm on it. Plenty for 5 hard drives in a home server setting.
