Thanks guys! Always fun to get positive feedback. And to anyone who thinks I should have waited for bulldozer... well, just wait for my next build. wink.gif

I'm far from finished here, few more parts on the way and I'll at least get the aesthetics buttoned up for the week.

Looking really sharp! Love the blue sleeved cables!

Not putting fans under the radiator to push air out?

Yes, it can make a difference. Not so much at idle, but under load (gaming, ripping) when the heat starts to build the "push" fans will blow air across the radiator's fins and the top "pull" fans will take that heat out the top. Example is a car radiator: the fan is mounted in front of the radiator where it takes the air from the front grill or air scoops and blows it into the radiator to cool it's fins and thus the coolant.

Just a suggestion...cool.gif

Thanks for the suggestion, I do plan on it. I originally just had a push setup going out with 2 big boys up top, but the compression fittings caused a fan fitment issue. I'll be ordering 3 new 120mm fans and using a dremel to sort that issue out.

Yea, I had a problem with that too. I cut the corners of the fan case a bit to get them to line up better.

How exactly did you do that? I am very interested in getting the correct airflow setup.. lol.

Looks good. I recently began my first build, but wasn't brave enough to go for water cooling - probably never will. Seems counter-intuitive to put water around electronics.

How do you like the AMD 1090T? I got the 1100T for mine. I never worked with AMD before but decided to switch it up for my first build.

Also, a lot of people seem to favor the HAF-X. Is it that nice? The Thermaltake Armor+ had a lot of 3.5 and 5.25 bays for my needs.

I love my 1090t. My haf-x.. I'm not as impressed with. If I could find a full side window for it, though.. I'd be thrilled. I just think for a 200$ case, you should be able to at least upgrade to a full window.

I went with it becuase it fits a 360 rad so well up top.
