Planning on getting a scythe himuro mini for the SSD and mount it on the bottom of the case. As for the HDD, I'm thinking of putting some
Carbon Fiber on it and mount it sideways behind the front radiator. Sorta like the same way the motherboard tray is connected to the case.

Im putting off sleeving the psu it's so time consuming haha

Really nice, I might get the case but I guess a RX360 push/pull won't fit the top

it might fit but you would have to move the rad slightly towards the front so that it would clear the motherboard. But it wouldn't look aesthetically pleasing as you would see most of the rad + the fans.

As far as I know, the Fractal Design Series doesn't have a windows @ stock .

Are you using the R3 or the XL ? Looks like the R3 to me.

Isn't the XL a tad bigger ?

this is the XL, the XL is way bigger than the R3. Fractal Design will be coming out with windows soon for the R3 and XL cases from what I read somewhere lol.

Your sig says R3. You've been removing everything out of the XL

I'm not sure... I'm not down to cut a brand new case

sorry for the lack of updates this week, I'm taking summer session so I've got lots of studying. My flowmeter came in today and another package from PPCs will be here tomorrow. Hopefully by friday I'll have enough time to finish 95% of the build, still need to get some extensions from bitfenix.

Very nice Phaseshift. Are you still working with AquaTuning? I'm planning on doing the bulk of my loop through them since they have my MoBo block with Copper Base and have had a 5770 block.

Subb'ed btw.

yes I am, I'll most likely be getting my second gtx 580 block and backplate from them as well. They have great customer service and their prices are lower than PPC, Frozen CPU as well as Sidewinders (if not the same). They have cheap 48 hour or 72 hour shipping.
