much better :p shame you carn't see the fluid going through it like the block in one of your previous photo's.

Always wondered how can you tell if the pump fails? Im guessing you can't actually see the fluid moving? Do the pumps make noise?

- DVD-RW
- Geforce 8500GT

I'm not excessively fond with the big string of cables at the bottom, but they are stiff and there isn't really anything to do with them (also, I can't imagine that they impede airflow). HP decided that it would be OK to have a pair of 80w CPUs + GPUs in a case with no intake fan and a 1000RPM exhaust; I feel otherwise, so I put a Corsair fan in the front (cable ties!)
I'm contemplating de-riveting the HDD cage and then putting in a 2nd 120mm intake--I think that delivering cool air directly to the CPUs might help a bit (load temps are mid-to-upper 60s C in standard room temp)

Yeah you can tell it's kind of cheap pressed metal when you look at it.
