Ugh, asked for a order status update today and apparently a simple reservoir tube is hard to get by. Guess I'll have to fix my res and change my plans a bit. Hopefully I can round things up this weekend or next week.

And no, no pics until it's finished and I'm not overly disappointed hmmsmiley02.gif

Great job, and a beautiful rad:thumb:
Did you use a Lian-Li psu extender for that mod?
I ask because I bought a 480 Monsta to fit in the bottom of my TJ07, and I'm considering "moving" the psu for more room for that beast.
It will fit beside the rad in its stock location, but doesn't allow enough space for a push-pull fan setup if I want to go that route.
I also have a Lian-Li psu extender box, but I'm debating about using it, or moving the psu to the front bay as you had yours previously.

Required some surgery but it clears the bottom 240. The positioning is off from the mounting holes but about 6 holes lined up and that's how its secured.

yessir.gif I've used the Lian Li psu extender a few times and its a wonder. Very simple to install. The hardest part is outlining the square you need to cut. Not too wide or the bracket will not have a place to grab. Also, its a pita when the back panel is flushed or has some design to it which makes the bracket sit flush difficult. Overall, a simple and elegant mod to make more room down there.

I'm waiting on two Monsta 360s to arrive next week. In the mean time, the Monsta 240 and a GTX 240 will hold me down for now smile.gif

Thanks for the advise:)
Looking at the back of your Elysium, the psu extended out the back looks quite good, it seems to blend in well.
A Rep+ for the reply, and innovation.

I'm enjoying following your build, it's been very entertaining! Two 360 Monstas yet to come:eek:
Looking forward to seeing them installed, and your temp. results from all that radiator goodness.
I hope your Alphacool decals were properly applied on the 240 and your incoming 360's. Mine came with one properly applied, the other side looked like Stevie Wonder stuck it on there:rolleyes:
I attempted to peel it off to straighten it, bad move, as they tend to break very easily. No big deal, it's just a decal.
