    The CX 750 is serving it's purpose, but I really do not care for non-modular PSU's:(
    Still waiting on the Corsair H100i cooler to replace the Drak Night...

    When you took the C70s drive cage out did it scratch the paint on the bottom cage?

    They must use cheaper paint on the 550D. I had to forget about changing my drive bay config because of the scratches now hidden between the bays. I already had to replace the door cause it scratched up the first day. I like the layout of this thing but the build quality sucks balls. That's what I get for leaving Lian Li.

    I completely forgot about showing what happened to my old lanbox! :O

    Anyway here is what happened to it-it became an HTPC.

    It was a bit of a tight squeeze fitting all the cables in, especially with the bit 3.5" 2tb driver in the middle where I used to hide all my cables. But I'm very happy with the result as it is EXTREMELY quiet, and I am very impressed with the Asus DC HD7770. It can even play new release games on moderate settings.

    Now I just need to remove them stickers :p

    Redid the deployment build went a little simpler in hope nothing will fail.

    Has a temp videocard in it (8400GS) waiting for deployment funds going to run something a bit better as well as a color coordinating powersupply which is also a temp.

    You'll like it. Just be very careful with it and you might want to grease the front door clasps. Can take a lot of force to open and close because the clasps double as hinges for their reversible door system.

    FINALLY after two different orders and eating restocking fee's, I got the fans with the look and noise/airflow ratio I wanted. I'm very happy with these Gelid Silent 12fans as they move about the same amount of air as my Gentle Typhoon AP-13's with even less noise thanks to the rubber grommets. They came nicely sleeved and I removed the label on the fan hub for a cleaner look. They look real good and have just the right amount of white that I wanted to make the case interior pop out

    Also got the lighting done at last thanks to great NZXT lighting kit from Frozen cpu. Took awhile to figure how to lay it for the best subtle lighting to go with the red LED's and getting it to stay put with the included cable clamps but I finally managed it.

    Coming up i've got the window panel coming soon along with either Corsairs new cable kit or going with a Bit Fenix cabling with silver metallic coloring instead of white that I think will really help make the inside really stand out an look unique among other cases. Also got some cabling clean up to do along with the LED mod on the front panel. Also looking at getting a custom ROG decal shipped if I can manage it, so stay tuned!

    wow. your post scared me at first....until your link affirmed why ive done....

    technically they're not stacked, the open fan in the middle will negate the airblockage phenomenon the stacked rads produced......

    very interesting tho, thanks for sharing that :toast:

    They wont perform best like that. Best bet is to run a large shroud in between the two radiators. You will want the absolute max static pressure possible. His current configuration is one of the worst possible.

    This is what a properly stacked set of rads should look like.

    Just a shame about the dam IDE cable, it's only a backup drive so might get a sata adapter for it.
