Nice build ! How did you fit the 480 in the top? Did you have to cut out an extra fan vent? As far as i know, the case only has room for a 360 in the top. and the 360, am i right to presume it's inhausting air?

GingerJohn:

doh .. I think that primochill coolant looks so damn good !smile.gif Is the dye really that bad? Will it reduce performance? I just don't think the colored hose gives the same effect, and since my MOBO block is seethrough, i would like to have a colored coolant. Is it possible to use dye that is not as bad on the components, or should i just abstrain from using it completely?

I have bought some 12mm ID and 16 mm OD compression fittings from EK - they were reasonably priced and looked nice smile.gif

So far i've got yate loons for the radiators .. Considering the amount of fans i need, i had to buy a "budget" fan with acceptable performance .. Cutting corners smile.gif

Use distilled (+ ptnuke my choice or a coil). Coolants and dyes tend to break down and gunk up the blocks.

Yep I ended up cutting out all the stock mesh and just using an MNPC Grill. It looks really nice. The bottom also had to be cut out obviously. The top rad is an intake the bottom rad is an exhaust. If I just bought the case brand new I don't know how excited I'd be to cut it all up. I got it for a steal off some guy on Craigslist for $130 shipped so I was not too concerned about cutting it up.
