Well, jfarrar, you have done some nice work there bud! Love the orange and the way that you made the "x" in the top grille stand out! I also give kudos to the matching dual temp sensord, another nice touch. One question I do have is, is the fan on the backside for cooling the mobo's rear on the outside of the panel, or is it an optical illusion? lol Great work!thumb.gif +rep

4 Degrees! Awesome! I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to leave mine stock or cut it out to 200...? maybe just add another 120mm? I was surprised though that it dropped it so much with it havin to move the air through the grill holes in the side panel. On my old Aerocool Super Tower, I had a 120mm there but inside and it was taking heat out as when I tried using it for intake, it put way too much dust in there...lol. Nice idea though, I didn't think about putting it outside the cover...

As far as the paint stripping, jfarrar, it's too bad they don't make an inexpensive, portable shot-blaster lol it'd make the stripping soooo much easier! Oh well.

I am so psyched to have found this thread. I had no idea it was here. I ordered my elysium from newegg as soon as they got it in stock (which ended up turning into a battle with newegg customer service, but that's another story for another day).

Anyway, I'm strongly considering picking up an ex480 radiator from someone local and cutting out 120mm on the bottom of the drive bay. I'm assuming that somewhere in these 1,600 posts someone has done that already.

I'm also working on replacing the side window to be a full window. When I got my elysium the box of parts had come loose and scuffed up the acrylic. I emailed xigmatek and they sent me an entire new side panel including the fan. So now I have an extra in case I botch the first one.

You mean extending the bottom vent towards the front? smile.gif a 480 should fit (since I was able to fit 16x HDD in that space...) wink.gif
For the window, just a jigsaw with a good BiM blade will do it in minutes, you could use allen (int. hex) bolts to fix the acryl to match the front bezel like I did, turned out nice.
PS: don't ask me about WC, since my Ely build's a totally air one. biggrin.gif
