Great build. You have the same pump top I am thinking of getting. How do you like it?

Thanks much for the kind words...the dual pump top works like a champ although I could use a little more sound dampening under the brackets. The leftover XSPC rad gasket material works great for that. I hear ya on the cable routing but that always seems to a WIP...lol. I'm planning on putting in rigid tubing real soon and a 12v and 5v power terminals to get rid of the Molex connectors. Thanks again!!

Nice But a little to much going on

Its nice over all but the inside is nicely put together you put alot of time into this but also alot of money into it aswell. i find cases like this to be a bit annoying honestly its overplayed to many people do it these days and i get it the cleanly ness of it all serves a purpose but is it really a mod anymore? i still give it a 8 because it does take time and alot of patience to do it but modded not really.
