    Swiftech h220-20X Edge all in one liquid cooling setup. Pump and reservoir are built into the radiator. I'm running at 23c. artic silver 5 compound. Very easy to install, and preforms well. Price is a little steep, but I got mine for a great deal.

    The bottom fan is obviously suffocating.

    I know this is not a PC nor is it mine, it was a machine I was upgrading for a customer and this is the first time I've seen a Mac Pro's insides and I was amazed how freaking clean it was! It only had one cable standing out which was the PCIE connector to the GPU, hands down the cleanest and so far greatest tool-less case design I've seen oh and the graphics card was actually facing upright.

    Specs:
    2x Intel Xeon dual X5650
    8x 4GB 1333mhz RAM
    1x ATI 5770
    2x WD 2TB Enterprise

    Everything else was integrated onto the motherboard which oddly splits into two parts, one part being secured onto the panel the other part which is conjoined by some IDE connection looking thing is a pull out tray to upgrade the CPU and RAM.

    OK now back to PCs, something to wash your eyes out with, my WC setup

    I love MacPros too. As much as Macs get knocked, the fit and finish of the hardware design is very rarely matched. Once they got rid of the leaky watercoolers. I have replaced no less than 30 broken LC units in Mac Pros.

    At my school, my Computer Tech/Networking class(Class for Seniors and Juniors, ROP Class), we are working on this. I know that we're going to build some project with an Antec 300 case, a AMD M4 series mobo, 500gb hdd(Going to install Windows 7 in it), and an AMD Athlon x2 @ 3.0ghz, 4gb DDR3 1333mhz and an Antec 380w PSU.

    I only have 1 picture of the Antec 300 case. Sorry for the shi**y camera phone quality. 3.2 mega pixel.

    Nope, there's a fan in one end inside the fins.

    The way the fans are set up..... Not so much....

    Plus from my experience it doesn't make that much of a difference.

    Also it's bottom mounted.... Heat rises. If it were on the top you would be correct.

    I have had PSU's flipped either Direction.... In some cases I have found it to help this way. In this case I am doing it because I liked the look of the top of the PSU

    I have the PSU in my FT-01 the same way and have never had a problem. Silverstone FT-01's have two 180mm intakes and they are filtered so everything runs pretty cool w/low dust. I didn't want to take any chances where the PSU may get starved of air and overheat because of a clogged filter on the bottom of the case that didn't get checked in time.

    and....

    I also like the look of it fan side up :eek:

    Most part are water cooled so there is not much heat inside the case compared to air cooled rigs. In this case it wont really cause much of a big difference in the psu mounting orientation

    Ah sweet as was just wondering why it was upside down I spose it makes sense that the parts are mostly WC'd

    @ Norton I've got the RV02 so similar setup to you just an extra 180mm fan on the bottom but I'm anal at keeping the filters clean (atleast every second week)

    Unfortunately the FT01 has the PSU filter tacked inside the case under the PSU so I need to pull the PSU to clean it :banghead: I believe yours is set up to be serviceable easier.

    I clean mine every 2-3 weeks or so too- even pulled the upper intake and have it mounted on the outside. The original top filter setup sucked for servicing:shadedshu

    yup the PSU filter is on the back outside of the case on the RV02 nice n simple to keep clean the 3 for the 180's are a little more work but nothing to strenuous to clean
