I have set the Thermal Control Module to control aroud the set point of 22'C which is monitored by the MOBO Winbond sensor. I have provided a 10 minute load test result using Prime95:
Case Temp - 32'C
No load (idle) - 22'C
Max. Load Temp - 32'C

During test, case temp had also rose 3'C due to excess heat generation.

The case only had two rear 80mm exhausts but I was able to modify the back plate to mount the 92mm freezone fan. If you have a close look at one of the pictures you'll see what I mean. The cooler is everything I expected, quite powerful if set too low as condensation will form from the pelts, that's why I chose to set it to a constant 22'C.

Gives me the frosty feeling. And it well matches your cooling system with the word Aqua aka Blue. It would be better if your casing could like shine alil blueish colour.

Not a fan of the "robot" look with the outside of the case, but the innards are very nicely put together, 7\10

i've got tonnes of blue LED's, neon tubes and all that as well, but no clear panels or holes in my tower for any light to escape..! Probably a bit of a waste..!
