    I have decided it is time for me to make a custom case for myself. I wanted to get some feedback from you all on my design and layout of WC parts.

    I just recently upgraded my Core2 system to an i7 setup and for now am running everything in a lian-li v1000 plus II case with a single 120 loop for the CPU as this was my previous setup.

    I want to build the new case to, #1 give me a little more space for more WC parts & upgrades and #2 to have a nice clean custom looking PC.

    Here are a few rendered images of the case & the purposed WC loop:

    WC loop: pump -> rad -> CPU -> GPU -> res -> pump

    Here is the list of parts to be used in the case:
    PC components:
    ASRock x58 extreme MB
    i7 920 (going for 4Ghz 24/7 OC)
    ATI 5870 (going for 975/1300 24/7 OC)
    Patriot Torqx 128 SSD (OS & games)
    WD caviar black 640GB HDD (storage & apps)
    Slot loading DVD drive

    WC components:
    Swiftech D5 pump with Bitspower D5 pump mod top
    XSPC RX480 4x120 rad with Scythe GT 1600-1800 rpm fans
    Bitspower water tank multi-Z 250 res
    Swiftech GTZ CPU block
    EK 5870 GPU block (nickel & acrylic)
    PrimoFlex PRO LRT tubing 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD
    Bitspower G1/4 1/2" high flow fittings


    Thanks for all the input and comments you all can give and if all goes well, I can start a worklog to show the progress.
