    It's sitting right above his optical drive in a 5.25" bay. You can see the tail end of it stickout out past the drive cages.

    I've had to order the side panel through Corsair themselves, 75 bucks ahh well, worth it since I called 5-10 shops and they all had no ETA ;[

    Ok, these are kind of messy. But I finally got a water cooled System! :eek:

    This is my Thermaltake Dokker. I call the system Plan B, because my first water cooling attempt didn't go so well. :ohwell:

    Still a lot of work to do. Running my 6950 on my old UD3P/Q6600 system at 3.4GHz. And so far the temps and noise reduction are incredible. :D

    Exactly this. I found in the original 600T the hard drive rack blocked a lot of air flow. Since this is all water, I figured the more air flow the merrier;) All I did was slide some foam between the drives and mounted the hard drive with a single screw. It doesn't get moved, so the drive is safe the way I mounted it.

    Or you could just grab an SSD, and velcro it to the side of the cage.

    If only I had your kind of money:roll:

    For hers, that is the answer, I don't even think I need more than a 60GB drive in all reality;)

    I don't have a lot of money at all. I just pinch pennies, buy crap used, and wait patiently for my tax return every year. lol. I usually only do major upgrade once every year, and sometimes 2 years.

    I know man I was just poking the bear with a stick a bit there;) Does that pinching include new tape for the water loops? I kid, I kid.:D Hell man I'm still rockin' the P55 and 470 combo. Haven't really got many upgrades in the past year or so either. As for this year, funds need to be pinched for CES:D

    lol. No, I still have that roll.

    I'm waiting till skt2011 and Bulldozer to hit for my next upgrade. Been rocking the 980X since it released, and I see no reason to change until something significantly faster lands. I'm thinking the 580 should hold until the year after that. If not, I'll try to dig up another used one for cheap down the road to hold me off.

    As far as used Vertex 2's, I'll be offloading my F120 on here once Corsair releases the Force Series 3 drives. They need to hurry up! I'll have to take a family picture of the F80, F100, F120, and F3-120 once they're all here :)

    Cheers mate, for some reason it's 1280x960 although it should be 1280x1024. No biggy. :)

    looks like not many opportunities for cable management in that case but I guarantee you a few cable ties and patience will do wonders for airflow and looks and will make thing easier to get at without having to wade through a birds nest to get at

    Sneekypete's Graphite setup inspired me to work harder on mine :toast:

    I also copied Sneeky's idea of putting the 2TB HDD in one of the 5.25 bays and it turned out awesome, thank you for that idea! I used some blu-tak (playdough like adhesive) to stick my ssd's together and onto the case and removed the HDD cages completely to provide the front fan with 100% clearance.

    Corsair gave me the green light on my windowed side panel, they will be shipping on 25th of May via UPS from US to Aus another fortnight to go I guess :cry:

    That dust has a brownish tint. Do you smoke around the PC?
